      3. I just listened to the first two episodes oof The Pagan Knitter back-to-back. I am so impressed with the quality of the content of this podcast. I'm definitely returning to hear new episodes as they become available.

        Congratulations on this new venture!

      4. I absolutely love the podcast! I'll be anxiously awaiting the next episode. Your topics mesh so well and your passion for each is obvious. The sound quality is great too, which is always a bonus. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge (and your Bugga!) with us :)

      5. Such a poetic description of Lammas! Also, Bugga rocks! ;) Oak Bay butcher shop is one of my favourite places. The bacon is incredible.

      12. Posting on behalf of Kate, who had trouble getting the blog to take her comment....

        "I’ve just discovered you (downloading episodes as I type) and only just heard the name Bugga in the world of yarn, looking forward to hearing you and one day eventually trying Bugga.

        Good luck with your podcasts"

      18. Such a wonderful podcast. You speak so eloquently and your descriptions of all topics are beautiful. Like I can see it in my mind as you speak. I’m WickedStitchWitch on Rav. Your skeins of Bugga are amazing and anyone would be lucky to give it a happy home. Looking forward to your next episode.

      25. Hi, really enjoyed the first two shows and looking forward to the third.

        I've not had the pleasure of Bugga so I really can't chose, I'll leave it to you if I'm lucky enough!

      28. Dear Ursa, thank you for your beautiful new podcast. I particularly enjoyed your essay about Lammas, so thoughtful and loving.
        I also love the tone of your voice, very soothing, makes listening a mere joy!

      30. I just finished listening, great episode! I'm an avid gardener and I have jealously issues regarding the west coast for sure! You are very lucky to have so many like minded people in your area when it comes to whole, natural food!

        cheers,
        Jill

      31. I just wanted to pop in and say hello and to tell you how much I have enjoyed listening to your podcasts...all three of them! My favorite thus far has been your third show...but I will comment on that under that particular show's notes. I feel fortunate to have found you through listening to the delightful Martine from the IMake podcast. It tickles my funny bone that as a fellow Canadian and from British Columbia as well...that it would take listening to a Brit to learn about you!
        Looking forward to learning more about you and your passions as this podcast appeals to me on so many levels...thank you
        PS Also thanks for the introduction of a-new-to-me yarn...The Sanguine Gryphon...after perusing their shop I can see the start of another beautiful relationship beginning!

      32. Hi Ursa
        I just discovered your podcast on iTunes. You are a knitter after my own heart. Purples and greens are my favorite colors also, and I currently have the Terra shawl on needles and I am loving it. I would love to win some bugga in the blue morpha please. I was just at sock summit in Portland and visted the Sangine Griffin booth, it was breath taking. Congrats on the new podcast,
        Tara

      33. Dennine (Complex Texture videocast) mentioned your yarn & that you were podcasting so checked it out. I enjoyed the first 3 episodes & am looking forward to more. SG dyes such beautiful yarn, I'm lucky to live in Maryland where she does some local fiber shows!

      34. I enjoyed the first two episodes. Nice to hear a Canadian podcast. Did you know that lammas means sheep in Finnish?

      35. Great podcast! Keep it up! Lacemaven (on ravelry) as a Kiwi expat, bugga makes me laugh as it is a very rude thing to say in NZ!

      36. What a wonderful new podcast! I've already shared it with my Pagan friends! I look forward to more!

      41. Listening as I type this. I'm loving your podcast!

      42. Enjoying the podcast so far, looking forward to more!

        I really like the golden orb weavers (actual spiders) that we have around here. But as far as the yarn goes, I have to admit that I prefer the Blue Morpho. Beautiful colors!

      43. Oh yay! I just squeaked in, didn't I? Greetings come Southern California! I've never worked with Bugga before but after hearing your rave reviews of it I'd really love to try! (Obviously I will be buying myself a skein or 3 whether I am lucky enough to be picked or not for this drawing)

        Love and luck!
