Knitters Recommend Podcasts

Knitting Standard Knits

Recently on Instagram, I asked my knitting pals what podcasts they are listening to. I got SO MANY replies, I wanted to compile a list for everyone to enjoy. 

A few notes: to sort these generally, I used the "categories" from the Apple podcast app, although I made a separate category for knitting / sewing / fibre related podcasts. I put the most recommended podcasts at the top of each list (the number in brackets = the number of times it was recommended), and the rest alphabetically. I haven't listened to most of these personally, but just thought it would be great to compile the list of recommendations!
