In Part 8 of our eight-part series, we discuss the situations that arise as knitters seek clarity about what constitutes an original design and how to negotiate issues of crediting design and technique. Dr. Lilly and I reminisce about the series and close by asking questions of each other. We have a few surprises and teasers about upcoming events — you will want to mark your calendar and scour your recipe book to plan for EZ’s birthday party!

Thank you so much for your podcast. I have listened to all of the Lilly and EZ podcasts, and have been recommending them to my fiber friends! I’m now going back in the archives and enjoying all of the podcast goodness that is in there!
Dear Sarah and Dr Lilly, Your interviews about EZ were so interesting. I knew Elizabeth Zimmermann’s name but not really much about her. I bought Knitting Without Tears and am reading it. It’s hysterical. Talk about Opinionated Knitter! Here is what I keep thinking about. My mom had a knit shop in Cincinnati in the 70s. My mom knit a lot but I don’t really know what kind of knitter she was and how much she really knew. I think the hard stuff was done by Helen, an employee. I just keep wondering if she knew about EZ or got her newsletter. I asked my 97 yo dad if Mom had ever mentioned her name but I knew he wouldn’t remember. I suspect the only knitting conversations they had were about the shop losing money! I called a friend who is an artist and was from Milwaukee and is in her 80s and asked her if she knew of EZ but she didn’t. Dr Lilly, I found your dissertation and am reading it too. Of course some of it is academiccy-but I can get the gist of those parts. So interesting.
I stumbled onto your Podcast, Sarah, and I became hooked (or needled?) after 5 min. I will just go backward or forward and listen to them all. Thank you both so much for expanding my Knitter’s mind. Barby (in Seattle)
