Episode 1 – I hate knitting! (Not really)

Welcome all listeners! Today you meet sisters Melanie and Deborah. We discuss the 2009 World Wide Knit in Public day in Buenos Aires, and take a look at the poem What Happened to Lazy Charlotte from Heinrich Hoffman’s book Slovenly Betsy.

We are looking forward to the Olds College Fibre Week 2009 (in Alberta, Canada), and the upcoming re-release of Alice Starmore’s Book of Fair Isle Knitting.

Knitting is even pervasive in music. Enjoy these tunes:
Ordinary Day – Great Big Sea (with thanks to the Podsafe Music Network)
Doozer Knitting Song – Fraggle Rock, episode “The Great Radish Famine”
The Knitting Song – “I’m going to knit myself a sweater” – Sophie Madeleine
Allegro, il Penseroso ed il – Moderato by Handel
Air Vif – Written by Poulenc, sung by Melanie Gall
Pardon me, I didn’t knit that for you – Sung by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne of Mason Dixon Knitting
