Episode 5 - Mitten Knittin'

The sound issues are fixes this week (high-fives all around)! Thank you everyone who brought that to my attention. I'm not sure I would have noticed because I listened though headphones while playing back the episode. Please don't be shy about alerting me to any technical problems, mispronunciations or other issues.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this episode! I'm loving all my projects this week and am having a great time doing the podcast.


Again, I'm participating in the Podcaster Challenge hosted by Lois of KnittingsMyBag. Please join my ravelry group to get the latest news and participate in the KAL. There will be prizes!!

Welcome to group members Sarah, Mari, Kara, Tracy and Michelle who introduced themselves in the group this week!

Check out Mari's excellent podcast, Exchange Student in Fiberland!

I got a new futon! Yay! It's super inexpensive, comfortable and would be perfect for a tween/teen's room. Oh, and they offer FREE shipping right to your door. That's awesome.

Happy 1/2 birthday to Miss Lailah on Friday! I can't believe my baby will be 2 1/2 already.

  1. Oh My Gosh! I love, love, love the Perry hat! My son has a Perry hoodie, which hangs on the back of the closet door. Everytime we see it, we say, "THERE's Perry!" You should write up the pattern! You COULD market it as an Angry Birds hat too.
    I don't know how to follow a crochet pattern, but I'm willing to try!

    Great job, Brittany!
