  1. Dear Jooles,
    There would be a LONG line for all of us that would be both blessed and honored to have you , to call you , ' sister '. May I be the first in line ????? YOU are SUCH a beautiful soul. I treasure your podcasts. I treasure you. Your Christmas gifts you've made thus far are just FABULOUS !! Beautiful, beautiful work and taste. Purpose, Intent, and Love oozes from each. Look forward to seeing you next. xo Warmly, Marcia

  2. Thank you Joules for another lovely podcast, it's always a joy to sit and spend some time with you. I have to say, I love Mabel's coat, it's so cute. Can I ask where you got it? We have a tricky time getting ones to fit Bertie, I fear I may have to make him one!

    1. Hello Lovely Sandra!
      Thanks you, I feel just the same when I watch you x
      I got Mabel's coat from Muddy Paws .....
      lots of love xxx

  3. Such a beautiful podcast!! I so enjoy them and look forward to each new one, so much fun. You are such a lovely, sweet person and such a joy to watch. I so love your knitting and am going to get refreshed with knitting again soon so that I too can knit some gorgeous socks like you.

  4. Thank you for making my ironing more cheery today... I would rather watch with a wooly make, but the ironing pile needed attention. Lovely makes, and gorgeous yarns. I knitted the purl bee hat a few Christmases ago, it's a great knit. They have such beautiful - and free! - patterns, one of my favourite hat patterns is their sweetie pie hat. Oh, and thank you for sharing the pom-pom attaching tip!

  5. Great podcast Jooles, I got quite a lot of knitting done while listening to you too! :)
    And I just have to say, I LOVE your blouse!

  6. I notice on your insta that you deleted the question "what product do you use to stamp onto fabric" and your answer. I would be interested to know this.

  7. That's perfect! Thank you.

  8. Beautiful makes and lovely fungus picture. I love taking picture of fungus. I just wanted to say I really enjoy your podcast. I only 'discovered' it last week while looking for more to watch/listen to in order to escape all the commentary on tv and radio. I'm only a beginning knitter but am really enjoying seeing all your makes. Glad to see another episode is up. I am saving it for tomorrow when I'll be in my craft room.


Thank you so very much for stopping by..... I love it that you do!
Your kind comments make my day & I love to know what you think.
