Before I talk about the title of today's blog, I wanted to get back to you with the project I'm working on....the one that looks like THIS:
As you can see, I've done a little more on it since yesterday, but not much. (You'll know why later on.) It is the Tote'Em bag from the newest Knitter's Magazine...designed by Suzanne Atkinson. So far, this pattern is incredibly easy to follow (great directions) and no mistakes yet. The bag will be felted when it's done and calls for Patons Classic Merino in 3 colors...main and two others. Been using my AC Moore coupons (see Gigi's blog for a link to MORE coupons) to buy the skeins, so...it's a pretty inexpensive project. (woo-hoo!)
I don't want to say TOO much about this project since I will be talking about it in more detail in....
at the end of the week.
"Podcast?", you say. "What Podcast?"
Well, I've been working on this for a while and I'm hoping I can get the "Sleepy Eyes Knits" podcast out on the web by Friday night...maybe Saturday.
It's not super high quality sound, but surprisingly good for one recorded in my bedroom....the site of many illicit (not sure WHY they're illicit) love makings...and, alternately, where my little son sleeps as well. And, yes, it's pretty much me...just babbling on and on about knitting...like I always do. But, this time, you can listen to me for 30 whole minutes straight! (I know....please don't cringe until you actually hear the whole thing, k?)
So, right now, I'm colllecting THINGS.....interesting NEW online yarn stores, blogs, gadgets, books, etc. to talk about and all of that.
I'll have 4 sections to my podcast...."Current Projects", "Wow...New Stuff", "YarnGasm" and "Friggin Knitting".
What I'd like from you, my lovely knitters, are....
*IDEAS of what you'd like to hear me talk about
*SPONSORS for my humble (very humble), little show...I gladly accept yarn as payment for advertising! (mmmm....yarn)
*MUSIC...anyone know a band who has a cd that wouldn't mind letting me play one of their songs on each of my shows?
*GUEST SPEAKERS.....anyone have a small story about yarn or knitting that you'd like to have me read or maybe do an interview with me?
If you would like to share ANY of these with me, please email me HERE.
Comments??? (he he he)
