PodcastsBrenda Reynoso PenaComment

I love podcasts. It doesn't matter if they are audio or video podcast. As long as the audio and content are good of course! Last year, I published "My Favorite Podcasts" blog post and I noticed a lot of readers are searching for new content and good podcasts  to listen to.

Today  I want to share a few new podcasts that I am enjoying very much. They are available in Itunes or sticher.


Sweet Georgia (audio)

Sandybythelake (you tube) 

 Sew can she (audio)

very pink knits podcast (audio)


 Bhooked crochet. This is on iTunes as audio but she also has an excellent Youtube channel with lots of patterns and tutorials for all Levels. I like Britanny's teaching style so much that I purchase her Craftsy Tunisian crochet class. I am learning a lot and will share in a later post my progress and projects.

Sewing:  Love to Sew (audio)

Money:  Her Money by Jean  Chatzkty (audio)

Business: Dear Handmade Life (audio)


As you can see, I like to listen to a variety of topics, not just knitting. I normally listen to podcasts when I am driving, walking the dog  or cleaning.   I hope you find inspiration and learn something new while knitting or crochet or sewing.

More knitting podcasts!

Knitting, Lifestyle, PodcastsBrenda Reynoso PenaComment


Sometimes being home sick for a few days is a great opportunity to catch up on old episodes or learn about new podcasts. I have been watching/listening to a lot of podcasts lately but they are all full of interesting topics and news of the knitting world. If you like to listen to podcasts or are looking for new podcasts, keep reading!

  4. Tinypaperfoxes  (Jennie and Devon are a cute couple sharing their knitting projects and also sewing)
  5. Sew over it   (I like Lisa's style and tutorials, this is about sewing but hey I want to learn how to sew lol)

Audio Podcasts

  1. Craft-ish by Vickie Howell - like always, she has an excellent  voice and loves everything crafty.
  2. Power Purls podcast by Kara Gott Warner, she is the editor of Creative Magazine.
