    What a lovely video! You looked great, but you’re right … no one likes watching themselves on video. And can I just say I’m terribly jealous of your neat and tidy home? Brava, well done!

    What a great film. That’s so fabulous and your house is gorgeous – I am very jealous, of that and your stash of course, but I was always jealous of your stash 😉 I bet it was a really interesting thing to do.

    Loved everything about this. Thank you for doing it. As a solitary knitter it was great to see someone knitting and talking about it as an extra to my daily dose of Ravelry. And I totally agree about not knitting anything you don’t want to and taking an interest in each other’s hobbies. Long may you keep it up Susan, Ben, Ziggy and Kitty! X

    Fantastic! I loved it. You were brilliant and the images of the film were so lovely to watch. I’ve followed your blog for a couple years, but to see all your knits together like that was amazing. You really do beautiful work (this film included!) Congratulations!

    Loved it, I know what you mean about hearing your own voice but the film is great. Guilty Knitters is a great group and we love coming. Envious of your stash store and hubby has no reason to moan at me any more!!

    Just watched this and loved it! You came across really well and looked so relaxed – a fantastic advertisement for knitting, and yes, I too am a wee bit envious of your beautifully tidy house!

    I love this! How nice to have a documentary of your knitting. I didnt think you sounded scratchy at all; you look lovely! Nice to meet some of the “guilty knitters,” (chuckling about your stash), and Ben and the kitties, and to have a tour of your serene looking home. You make knitting seem so classy and fun! Cheers, julie

    Loved seeing projects familiar from your blog on film, it made them seem 3d and more real! And you came accross as very measured, passionate, sensible and knowledgable. Great film! (And yes I too am a little envious of your stylish minimilist house. Consolling myself by imagining frantic pre film crew tidying, although it would take weeks of tidying for my house to come close!)

    I stumbled across your blog today and was utterly inspired by it and the film. I am 64 have been knitting since I was 5 years old when my grandfather taught me on a pair of nails, but i would never before have had the courage to try anything as creative as you have. I am about to become more ambitious :). Now what can I use from my stash?

    I really enjoyed the film – you are a wonderful ambassador for the art of knitting, Susan. What is that wonderful grey going to be, I wonder?

    kind regards

    Both the wife and I loved this video, much more so than either of us thought we would, bearing in mind that neither of us are knitters.

    I love this video for the positive light that it casts on how somebody can take a passtime or interest that they love, and surround themselves with it, and then share and expand on that little world created with others who also share the same or similiar interests.

    There’s just something so damn nice and uncontrived about that, and the video perfectly captures that, and I think that is why the wife and I were moved so by it.

    The wife and i are gamers, and any gamer will know that whilst we may love our hobby, it has its fair share of internet thuggery in it, to the point sometimes when you start to wonder if its more of a war than a passtime.

    So it was just such a breath of fresh of air, and genuinely touching, to see a little vignette (Susan had to help me with that word ;)), where someone demonstrates how a life can be positively shaped and enhanced by having an activity you just enjoy for no other reason than you enjoy it.

    Both the wife and I had these silly smiles on our faces as we watched the movie, because it was just so damn nice to see it and it moved both of us muchly!

    Anyway, as you were, and thank you Susan! (and Hi Ben!)

    What a beautiful video Susan! I love your projects, your ideas, you are such an inspiration and seeing all that put in a video is a perfect way of sharing your world with your readers! Wonderful shots and a great interview! Thank you for letting us be a part of your life even for just a few minutes:)

    How lovely the idea of your video is! It is so intimate, like entering into the world of Susan Crowe and absorbing the energy and positivity you share. I absolutely loved your video and seeing all your projects live showed them being even greater than they are in pictures! Thank you!

    Wow! how inspiring! My mum spent year knitting and doing crochet, and I even tried once but i must confess I am not that skillful with my hands! I really enjoyed what you said about NOT turning your hobby into a career, i completely agree with you! And Susan, I never met you but your voice sounds really natural and relaxing. If you were nervous, then you fooled us really well!. Loved the doc! Enjoy your knitting!

    Hi Susan, what a truely lovely and inspirational vid. I have a pash for knitting and yarns and can SO relate to it. It was just wonderful to hear you talk knitterly and see your fabulous projects. If anyone were having a knitting slump – this film would do the trick! You once very kindly emailed out of disaster when I was in a tangle with ‘Halcyon ‘. Thanks ever so much. Best Wishes xxx

    The video is great! I love the splashes of red around your place…and on you…my Hubs is definitely an enabler…he even buys me yarn..and not the cheap stuff either….;)

    What a lovely video. It’s so nice to hear another knitter say, “I knit what I want, when I want. . .” That is what the joy of knitting is all about. Brilliant!

    That is such a lovely film. It is great to see knitting presented in a way that isn’t being slightly patronising. This shows knitting as a skilled activity but one that is accessible.

    And the examples of your work are all so elegant. I liked your Kidsilk Haze multicoloured wrap. I made one of those in shades of blue, green and purple and I love it.

    Tell me, what pattern is the cardigan you are wearing?

    I’m behind on my blog reading and only just catching up. Wow!! Congratulations on being part of such a stylish project. You looked great, and I loved ‘meeting’ Kitty and Ziggy too. My stash might be on a par with yours………but do I care? Nope!!! I love yarn and buying it and having it to squish and admire is all part of knitting!

    Hi Susan ever thought of doing a couple of instructional videos, teaching certain stitches or patterns?
