bad news... again

so, um, yeah, i suck.

Work has been takign up more of my energy that I really expected, and I have a new podcast recorded, it's just not put together, and while I mention that I'm going to be movign to every other week, I think what I'm actually going to need to do is go to one a month, with return to a normal schedule once autumn arrives.

I love the podcast, but unfortunately life must come first.

Podcast on the horizon!

We're almost there! After a few concept reworks, and futzing with music, the podcast is on its way.
I've got all the voice bits recorded and the music downloaded. Now it's just up to Tech Guy Bill to mash it all together in some sort of coherent style.

Unlike what I said in the last post, the podcast is only going to be about half an hour until I can get more used to this whole finding music thing, and finding things to talk about. That and I would need a larger hosting plan than what I have right now, and I'm not ready to shell out the extra cash as of yet.

So stay tuned folks, there will be a new podcast here in a few days!

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Hey, what are you doing here?!

Hehe, the podcast hasn't started yet, so I'm afraid I don't have much content up here yet.

Feel free to add this blog to your feeds, and you'll get updated as soon as everything gets off the ground!

What, you're still here?

Well... I guess I could give you a little look into what I'll be doing with "Whiskers in a Twisted Stitch" while you're here. :D

I plan on making the podcast about an hour long. But don't worry; you won't have to listen to me talk the entire time!

I will mostly be playing great songs and every now and then I'll break in to give you my views on yarns, knitting books, blogs, tips and techniques, and other knitting podcasts.

If you like a particular song or type of song I play please let me know and I'll make an effort to either play the song again on a future podcast or play more stuff like it. I'm here to make your knitting time as enjoyable as possible!
