Episode 35: The Swatch That Shouldn't Be Allowed

Hi Knitters!

Episode 35 is coming to you on both the audio and video format!  What?!?!  I hope you enjoy it. The audio version includes a Knitting Fantasies segment that the video version does not.  The video has the benefit of seeing stuff.  Pick your poison.  :)

If you have a chance, let me know what you think of this podcast and which way you prefer to see it!

Episode 34: The One Where I Really Tried

Hey Knitters!  I hope you enjoy this episode of the podcast despite a few technical difficulties I had in recording it.  I have been out of the country, had sick kids who did not enjoy the time change and have been sick myself, but I am back!  See below for details of the shownotes.

Episode 32: The Week of Two Podcasts

Hey there, Knitters!  Here is an audio podcast for those of you who enjoy this format.  I'm a little under the weather today, so I hope it's up to my usual crazy standard.  :)

Episode 31: Seeing Stuff

Here it is, folks! a VIDEO podcast! I know people do them all the time, but this was a big deal for me. It leaves much to be desired in terms of "filmmaking" (ahem...) but I am so, so proud of it.  See below for shownotes.



Note: The Inverness Pullover is not out yet and will be released later this year.

Episode 30: The One With All the Kids

Hi Knitters!

Can you tell that access to Mom in my house is pretty much 24/7?  If I shut a door and ask kids to watch a show for 30 minutes while I record a podcast, that is met with, shall we say... reluctance?

Ahhh, well.  I hope you don't mind a few interruptions!  See below for pictures of the Way Better School Scarf and the Inverness Pullover. And if you have any thoughts or comments to share, I would love to hear from you!

Episode 24: Confessions

Hello Knitters! It is so good to be back with you again!  And again I have talked for about 45 minutes.  I hope you don't mind!  I never mind when podcasts go long - more fun to listen to, so I hope you feel that way too.  My shownotes are below along with some pictures of my new pattern which will be released in the next few weeks!


The fabric I talked about can be found here and here.  :)

Long Dog Yarns: Dark Dimension
(I just looked and it's not really rainbow in this yarn, more like hot pink, purple and yellow. LOVE!)
