Alana Dakos is Never Not Knitting

While blog surfing one day I discovered the blog Never Not Knitting by Alana Dakos. While scrolling through her original designs along the sidebar of her blog I found an archive of Podcasts. I've never listened to a Podcast so I decided to listen to Episode 1 while I finished my web surfing. I enjoyed that episode so much I immediately downloaded all 22 available Never Not Knitting Podcasts. I am slowly getting caught up, listening to one episode per night. Alana does such a super job with the podcast, it is simple yet well thought out. There are reoccuring themes such as Product Reviews and Stories from Listeners. What I enjoy most about the podcast is how much I can relate to the knitting obsessed mentality, Alana's style is conversational which quite often reveals quirky habits that make me laugh out loud and think "That's hilarious, I do that too!". I have made it as far as episode 9 thanks to a double dose last night during some late night knitting. With a friendly voice and down to earth attitude I can see why Alana's Never Not Knitting Podcast has aquired such a following. If you are as crazy about knitting as I am you will certainly enjoy listening!

...and did I mention the theme song is hilarious!


  1. i'll have to check it out

  2. Thanks for the podcast rec. I've never listened to one myself, but I think I'll have to d/l it :)

  3. I have been listening to Alana's podcast for some time now and have to say it is one of my favourites. I have also bought several of her patterns which are great. Her little model (daughter) is adorable, the patterns are simple yet interesting.
    Another favourite podcast is Cast On with Brenda Dayne. She is in Wales (originally from Oregon I believe)and her podcasts are very interesting and well thought out. She is on a pod-holiday until Oct. I think, but there are plenty of old ones available.
