To Podcast or not to Podcast

Welcome Everyone,
this week went by pretty slow, just working. Remember last week I talked about the charity event? Well, Tuesday I got a phone call that I won a door prize, I won a free class at the local yarn shop that I go to every week. I can't believe the luck I been having with knitting related prizes. I am very excited about my free class and immediately called the owner on her cell phone. She said I can either take a class or have a private lesson, if there is something I wanted to learn. I have a pattern in mind that I will need help to get started on, since the pattern confuses me. Yesterday, I went downtown to drop of my charity hat and pick up my prize, after that I hung out at the local yarn shop. So, this past couple weeks I been thinking about turning the blog into a podcast. I watch a lot of them and am friends with a podcaster and the podcasting community seems to be very nice. However, I don't know anything about the technical aspects, for instant what software to use or how to edit. My fiance is a computer buff and I have a laptop that has a camera and microphone build in, so I am sure I could do it. I think now my question is would any one even watch me babble about my knitting and spinning, I really can't think of anything that would make me unique from all the other podcasts. Well, let me know what you think in the comments below.

Finished Objects
Like I  said, I dropped off the charity hat. I just knitted a plain stockinette hat with a rolled brim and I added a pom pom. I think I used size 7 (4.5 mm) needles and some red heart that I donated as well.

I finished my Under Cover of Midgnight Hooded Cowl by Julie Turjoman out of the Vampire Knits book. I knit it out of Cascade 220 Heather Tweed on size 10.5 (6.5 mm) needles. I really like it and hope it gets cold enough this winter so I can wear it.

Works in Progress
I have absolutely no progress on the wedding shawl and all the other projects are secret knitting.

Yay, I actually spun a significant amount. I finished the first 2 ounces of my Spun Right Round in the Playtime colorway and I am almost finished with the second half.

Last week I met up with my friend Pam, who let me borrow her spinning wheel. She asked me if I could spin one of her fibers and I get to pick. She bought a beautiful into the whirled in May, when we were at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It's into the whirled BFL in the Vegetable Medley colorway.
I received my October fiber shipment. It is from no other than into the whirled  Merino in the Bodhi colorway. I love it, once again it has my favorite color aqua and teal in it. Also, they included the QR code on their label again, this time after I scanned it I emailed myself the link so that I can share it with you guys. The link includes a lot of information, which is very helpful in any fiber related craft.
Here is the link regarding info about Merino. The first picture is her inspiration picture, also this is the last nature inspired club installment.

I also purchased a few skeins at my local yarn store, but they are for secret knitting projects and I don't want to spoil anyone.

That's it for this week, next week again no plans. Please let me know what you think of the podcasting idea, you can leave a comment or private message me on Ravelry, I am StitchesPlease.

Happy Knitting,


    I will watch. No good on technicals, but several on Plurk are. Ask for help there.
    Hope to hear you soon
