New Podcast! Episode 15: Pattern Palooza

After braving a broken power source on my laptop, a podcast script outline that completely disappeared, slightly cranky kiddies and many weekend visitors, I finally, finally finished up the new podcast! Woo-hoo!

I think I was a bit rusty with recording and had a few sound "blips" here and there but, overall, I think it went o-kay. You'll have to let me know. I was feeling a bit silly last night, so I added a couple of funny songs to the podcast...hope they bring a smile to your face.

I haven't got much new to show you in terms of photos of knitted or spun projects at the moment, but I'm sure I'll have more after my deadline is past.

I do have one AWESOME piece of news, though. Got an email last night from Tasha asking if it was okay to talk about my Lisha Lace Scarf on Lime and Violet's Daily Chum. I mean....ahhhhhh! Is it possible for anyone to actually say the word "no"?

First, I screamed and made Ian drop the carton of milk he was holding. Then, I had to explain why this was so super fantastic (for which his response was something like, "I didn't understand a word you just said. Calm down and talk to me in a voice that doesn't hurt dogs' ears.") and, THEN, I called Jackie and to tell her the news but not sure now that she actually understood my loud babbling....maybe because I told her the news and then said I had to put Ben to bed now and hung up. I can just picture her sitting with the phone to her ear saying, "Huh?"

Before I end, I'll leave you with all necessary podcast links:


You can download it on iTunes under "Sleepy Eyes Knits", HERE or from the right sidebar.

I was so delighted this morning when I hit "update" on my podcasts and saw that little orange whirl next to yours! Just finished listening and thoroughly enjoyed it as always. I've been chuckling over the "Luggage left unattended will be taken out to the tarmac and blown up... by me." (giggle)
