I have been threatening to tell you all about my favourite knitting video podcasts for some time now. It’s my favourite thing to watch whilst knitting, particularly when there’s nothing on TV.
BEWARE! It’s addictive.
Once you have a few favourites, you can have many hours of viewing you’ve inadvertently committed yourself to watching each week. If you’re in charge of cooking meals for family members, you’re already in trouble.
In no particular order, here are the ones I’m currently keeping up with… just…
The KnitGirllls! The first video podcast I began watching religiously. They are two friends living across two US states (but soon to be reunited behind the camera together!). Watching these guys is like catching up with old friends. They are overall hilarious.
Inside Number 23: Katie is awesome. She sews as well, between her and Kristin from Voolenvine/Yarngasm podcast, they make me want to be a sewer of dresses.
Here’s Kristin from Yarngasm. She lives in Brooklyn, NY and I envy her yarny, crafty life. Damian can we move to NY?!
This is Amy from the Stranded podcast. She dyes yarn under her label Stranded Dyeworks. She lives in the UK and I love her. She is a lot of fun, I think she makes me laugh the most. She’s a great knitter and I love her taste. I have some of her yarn on it’s way to me…
These are The Grocery Girls. It took me a while to warm up to them (as Deb will account for), but I’m a big fan now, I even have a project bag made by one of them. My advice to anyone finding a new podcast to listen to; is to listen to the most recent podcast to see if you like them. If they pass, trail back to the original podcasts slowly, you may not like what you see in the originals… or maybe you’ve just gotten used to them over time? hmmm…
This is Eric from Sticks plus Twine. He’s lovely and has great projects.
This is my friend Penelope on her new podcast, Stash and Notions. I think she’s a pro and she’s only 2 episodes in. I love seeing my friends on the inter webs.
This is Mina from the Knitting Expat podcast. She is on my weekly watch list, lots of yarny show and tell and great projects and some funny cats.
And finally this is Andy from the AndreSue Knits podcast. Love her! She’s super creative and super down-to-earth and lovely to listen to and watch.
So there you go, that’s nearly 10 podcasts for you to check out and subscribe to on YouTube. Let me know if you have any other favourites! I’m only about 6 hours behind on my viewing schedule…

Thanks for this list! I have just discovered knitting video podcasts and am trying to build up some favourites. The only one I’ve really stuck with is Knitting Go. I have added all of these to my list and am looking forward to exploring all of the YouTube knitting podcasts (also, I always watch/listen to podcasts *while* I’m cooking dinner. Two birds, one stone).
You’re welcome! I’ll be sure to check out Knitting Go as well, thanks!
I had no idea there were so many the watch! I’m staying away for now, just can’t afford to get addicted (ha!)
I watch quite a few of those podcasts too. I dont even watch normal tv unless Offspring is on. I watch LegacyKnitz with Sue and Chelsea, Little Bobbins with Dani, Sew Sweet Violet which is a new one and also another new one I have been watching is the Hey Sister podcast with Tabi and Rachel.
I’ve tried to learn to like podcasts, but they just aren’t for me. I guess I am more of an action person, think superheroes, LOL. Now if Thor had a knit podcast, I am there baby!
