  2. Ellie says:

    My favorite (currently) technique is modular knitting; I enjoy learning and trying new techniques. The book looks like a wonderful resource for gifts and trying new things.

  3. diane says:

    I love Norwegian stranded knitting. Hm, I think it’s time for some mittens on the needles.

  4. Debbie M says:

    I’m very much into lace knitting right now. Thanks for participating, Jennifer!

  5. Heidi K says:

    I am really enjoying lace work and the patterns in this book look amazing! Would be so exciting to win a copy of the book, but if I don’t I know it will go to the top of my wish list!

  6. Kate B says:

    I’ve only been knitting for a couple of years, and still consider myself a relative novice, but I really enjoy lace knitting and recently completed a cape worked back and forth on a long circular, with ample use of lifelines!

  7. Sharon Rawls says:

    I love knitting lace!!! and love this book!

  8. Debbie says:

    My favorite stitch is the one I’m currently working. Right now, it’s the daisy stitch, which I’m working on the Sagano Shawl.

  9. kristin says:

    I love knitting with cables!

  10. Jennifer R. says:

    I love trying anything that challenges me!
    I really love lace work right now….
    I would love to knit “Kitty” from this fabulous collection!!!

  11. Diana says:

    I’m currently knitting a scarf in the “winter flame” pattern, and I love it. Would love a book of caplets! Thanks for the chance, looks like a lovely book!

  12. Brandi says:

    I’ve been knitting alot of small wraps and neckwear recently good timing for a contest.

  13. Carol says:

    I love it when the yarn cries out for entrelac. My absolite favorite pair of socks are in that technique and an entrelac hat is on the needles.

  14. Teresa says:

    I love cabling. I find that it keeps straight knitting interesting. The next thing I wast to try is lace knitting. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. ellen says:

    Although I do lace when I really want the item in question, I like fairly simple stitch patterns the best. Right now I am working on Jared Flood’s Geurnsey Wrap – simple stitch patterns yielding lots of texture.

  16. Kati says:

    I’m starting my first cowl this week in a waffle stitch pattern (Honey Cowl by madeline tosh). We’ll see if it’s a new favorite! I tend to enjoy the repetitive knit stitch a bit too much, so I thought this would be a nice variation of that. This looks like a beautiful book, and I can’t wait to enjoy the podcast on my iPod later this week!

  17. Ellen M says:

    I just discovered the Hurdle stitch. Never heard of it before, but it’s so easy and perfect for the manly scarf I am knitting for my husband.
    Thanks for having the giveaway!
    Off I go to check out your podcast.

  18. Bonney says:

    This book looks wonderful! I’m enjoying the brioche stitch right now. New to me and lots of fun!

  19. p lynne says:

    I loved the interview with Jean Moss. I’ve been knitting for a couple of years now and my favorite knitting is lace– the beautiful yarns and challenging patterns. Cables are becoming a favorite also.

  20. Jane Prater says:

    I’ve been bitten by the brioche bug. Seed stitch is always a joy to wear.

  21. Lisa says:

    I have only been knitting a little over a year so I have not gotten much farther than the knit and purl stitches. However, I would love to try knitting cables. They look like fun. I now want to start expanding the techniques that I know now that I have the basics down. :)

  22. Anne says:

    I love this podcast! It’s always exciting to hear the story of other artists and this episode again featured a wonderful person.

    To answer the question: At the moment I’m all into stranded knitting. Not so much the traditional fairisle ones, but funny motifs on mittens, or larger motivs on jackets.
    My favorite stitch is the linenstitch. It creates such a wonderful fabric and if knitted with a colourful yarn, this stitch blends in the colours really well. No striping but a colourful textured fabric. I really love it!

  23. Kristyn says:

    I love cables and lace but my lace knitting really needs some work. One of my goals is to learn fair isle so I can make Eunny Jang’s beautiful fair isle vest.

  24. Teresa Fussell says:

    I love knitting socks and am currently doing Cookie A’s Monkey socks.

  25. Twig says:

    Jean Moss’ story is inspiring — thanks so much for sharing it with us. I’m inspired to give her designs a try. She makes it all sound so easy. Right now, I’m learning the magic loop technique because, quite frankly, double-pointed needles make me want to run for the hills.

  26. MzTallulah says:

    I look forward to listening to the show! I’ve long loved knitting lace, but these days, as a busy mother working outside the home, I tend to opt for simpler projects! I’d also like to have a chance to explore Fair Isle and entrelac more.

  27. Dani Vilella says:

    so excited for shawlettes. I love the instant gratification of knitting smaller projects.

  28. Carmen says:

    I’m a beginner-ish knitter, so I haven’t tried too many stitches, but right now I’m into lace.

  29. Céline says:

    Great show and great interview !
    To answer Jean’s question (and let’s face it, try to get my hands on her inspiring book ;-), my all-time favorite are cables for the effect with minimal difficulties and very readable charts, but when I tried lace I found it addictive, when I discovered double-knitting and applied icord I wondered how I could have lived so long without them and I feel the kitchener stitch is simple magic. So many things to experience with and then again so many more to try !

  30. Ilina says:

    I like to knit lace but also like learning new techniques – entrelac is great fun too!

  31. Ellen says:

    I really enjoy lace knitting, but my goal for this year is to explore double knitting.

  32. Lisbeth says:

    I am a very, very beginner knitter, so right now my favorite technique is just to knit! I am inspired by my sister who is a beautiful knitter. She would love this book and I would love to share it with her:)

  33. Curious Art says:

    It’s fun to experiment with different stitches on small projects– otherwise I tend to get bored. These shawlettes look perfect for that approach! As to particular stitches, I like the one that creates two layers of fabric as you go– it feels like magic! Also spiral knitting for the same reason. Really anything that has a sort of surprise element as you knit it up. So much more entertaining!

  34. All of knitting fascinates me, especially those techniques that make something better or easier. When making socks, I love Judy Becker’s magic caston combined with magic loop (to knit two-at-a-time, toeup), with an afterthough heel, then Jenny’s Surprisingly Stretchy bindoff. All of these make knitting socks JOYOUS!

  35. I love to knit, however I’m learning. I am trying to learn cables right now.

  36. Tian says:

    I like cables and lace. Bug some days plain stoxkinette is my favorite

  37. I love to switch back and forth on techniques – right now I want to knit lots of stockinette because I’m working on a lace doily. But then I will want to knit something lace.

    Thanks for showing us the great patterns in this book!

  38. Cindi says:

    Darn! I think I missed the drawing but I just finished listening to the interview and just wanted to say it was fantastic! My favorite stitch is not that interesting but I LOVE seed stitch.

  39. Deb Goslin says:

    I am new to knitting. Last winter my mom helped me knit and purl a great basket weave pattern scarf. This winter the project is even easier. Knitting with Pomp-A-Doodle (yarn with balls every 2″). It knits up super fast and is The softest!

  40. Sonja says:

    Just now listened to this interview. What a great interview! Both of you. Thank you.

  41. Johnb313 says:
