    I love that Hunter’s patterns are so thoughtful, and that she seeks out those connections to things she loves and really thinks about the essence of what that thing is. Very Plato-nic. But translating the essence of (insert unpronounceable Latin name here) into a beautiful sock is just flippin’ brilliant.

    Greetings, Heather.
    Although St. John is also pushing my buttons {For shame, man O’God!}, I’m lingering over the last chapters of Jane Eyre.
    As previously confessed on Twitter, through the last few weeks of my First Semester of my Fiber Arts degree, I have been alternating between listening to the past episodes (I’m at the beginning of the Scarlet Letter) and Jane Eyre. You and Craftlit have helped me retain my sanity whilst I had to focus on deadline-enhanced creativity. ‘Tis appreciated.
    Thank you also for the introduction to Hunter Hammersen. She is brilliant and I am now smitten with a whole new range of patterns.
    You are the best kind of enabler. {wry grin}
    Thank you and please keep up your good works!

    I love Hunter’s first Curiosity book. I would love to win a copy of Vol. II. I have enjoyed Jane Eyre and all of your comments. You make the book come alive. Thank you, Heather. I am looking forward to Age of Innocence.

    I have had my eye on the first Curiosity Cabinet Book for a long time – I love Hunter’s designs! I would love to win a copy of volume 2! Really enjoyed the interview, too.

    In my opinion, knitting is a feat of engineering. Peeking at Hunter’s designs on Ravelry is fun because she engineers natural shapes!

    I fell in love with Hunter’s first curiosity cabinet. I would love to say I’ve cast on every sock in the book, like Gigi from the Knitmore Girls, but I haven’t. Maybe someday! Looking forward to seeing CC2 (and 3 next year?).

    P.S. just watched the video. I kept thinking how clean the pavement of the streets looked… finally realized, they just weren’t painted at all!

  9. Terri says:

    I enjoyed the interview with Hunter… her process is interesting! Would love to win the book!

  10. Monica says:

    Love Hunters’ patterns- I have Silk Road Socks and the first Knitters Curiosity Cabinet. Would love to complete the collection!

  11. Dorthe says:

    Once again, a great interview – I adore Hunter’s patterns, particularly the socks! Would love to win a copy of the book!

  12. I’m working on the digital side of manuscripts from around the silk road so I think the sock book looks fascinating. Also curiosity cabinets, love, love, love. One of my favourite museums is Pitt Rivers in Oxford which is full of these. Great place to go exploring.
    Anyway, would so love to get the book.


    Eddie’s Room on Facebook come over for some crafty ideas and conversation. 🙂

    I love Hunter’s designs, Silk Road Socks is work of art!

  15. Larissa says:

    Loving Jane Eyre (and craftlit in general)! Also love Hunter’s designs. Two favorite things in one place. Pretty cool! Thanks. 🙂

    I can’t believe we are almost done with Jane Eyre! This is the book that brought me to the podcast and I’ve been enjoying catching up on all the back episodes. Thank you for the great interview with Hunter. I’ve drooled over the Knitter’s Curiosity cabinet for a long time and think I”m going to pick it up soon. I’d love to win the second one. I’m a sock fiend and I thought it was hilarious that she talked about having at least one pair of yellow socks in her books. My favorite color is yellow so it definitely works on me!

  17. Rebecca says:

    I looove listening to you every week. I would love a copy of the new book!

  18. Laurilee Jordan says:

    love your podcast, it’s the one I wait for all week

    Love you!! I really want to hear the end of Jane, but I don’t want Jane to end! So conflicted.

      This has been a great read/listen and I will miss Jane when it is done.
      Love Hunter’s designs and her books!
