Podcast Babbling 20110327

Finished the Namaste Mitt Kit!! The kit is from Kama Suutra Fiber Arts (Remember, the pattern is designed by GirlGoneLoopy, check out her yarns at her Etsy shop)

Immediately started the Dawnsinger/Habitat Socks by Janel Laidman
Stored in my Namaste Hip Holster (not related to the Namaste Mitt Kit). Namaste handbags are here, this is the Classic Hip Holster, down the page.

Previously finished item shown is the Isar Scarf. The yarn is Green Sheep Base from The Unique Sheep, in Coffee House Reef colorway. It was part of the first coffee-based Sip N Stitch Club.

Lost Work in Progress - Celestine Sox by Berroco in Berroco Sox

Talked about Japanese Garden Shawl by Wendy Johnson. All proceeds of pattern purchases from now through the end of April 2011 will go to Red Cross to support efforts after the tsunami in Japan. (in the podcast I said, April 1st but I verified it's through the end of April)

Mentioned e-magazine Tangled. Check it out!

DramaticKnits thank you so much for the shout out!!

Verbal typo: I said most of my missing "finished objects" were simple. I meant missing "works in progress". Which is probably obvious, I realize.

"We're" a Podcast!

This week I'm putting quick links with no real additional info, it's just faster that way at this point in the evening

Largest Moon in 20 Years (Perigee Moon)
Vesper Yarn at Knitterly Things

Podcast Thank yous!

Minor verbal typo:
I didn’t buy my sister’s Wollemeise a couple years ago, but rather last summer. You may not care but it bugged me when I played it back.

Also, I apologize for the sniffling. My nose has been bothering me but I didn't realize I was doing it that much until I played it back!

The Beginning

To those new to videos here's a couple notes:
  • There is an ad at the beginning, just watch through it, if there are enough viewers, it earns a whopping 3 cents per ad or something like that. (I'm not actually thinking that will pay off but hey, I'll leave it)
  • There seems to be an ad that doesn't play, so if you have the spinning thing for a long time, refresh the page, that seems to work ok.
  • The little tv/monitor icon on the bottom right will make this full screen
  • You can also go to to view

Works in Progress (WIP)

Finished Knitting

Sipalu Bag from Knit Picks Palette

Evenstar Shawl by Susan Pandorf knit with The Unique Sheep Eos base in Pewter Earth colorway (in the recording I say it's the Eos colorway, that was incorrect, it's the Eos base yarn)

DragonflySoars, prototype episode

Well we shall see if this works. I have been thinking that I never have the time or inclination to blog these days. By the time I pull out things to photograph, get decent pictures, upload them to the computer, resize them, edit them, write about them.... well it doesn't happen. But maybe I can take a few minutes and and do a quick video.

So, this is basically a "prototype"... a "let's see if we can even make this thing work" type of episode. If you even want to call it an episode.

Please ignore the weird flippy hair!


P.S. That cup leaks like crazy!! Son says it's karma, he's probably right.
