Paula, I really enjoy your podcast and have since the beginning. The interview with Elizabeth is lovely. I have a comment though, about the new book. I am not a designer, just a knitter, so maybe I don't understand. I don't wear pullover sweaters, I find I'm too hot. I love cardigans. I love only one cardigan from Elizabeth's book and I would have to purchase the whole book for that one pattern which I don't want to do. Is there a reason why patterns can not be released individually? Maybe you could talk about this sometime on your podcast.
Thanks a lot,
Peggy Poellot

I really enjoyed your interview, her patterns are beautiful. I think a copperplate sweater would be a great addition to my work wardrobe.

Tough choice!! I really enjoyed this podcast and am intrigued to learn about her set-in sleeve technique.
I would knit Maris -- or Copperplate -- or....
