Speaking out on Sunday: Knitting and...

It's week two! This podcasting thing is a lot more complicated than making blog posts or rambling about what I'm currently up to, on Twitter, but I think it's all very much worthwhile.

So the big news this week is that the podcast is on iTunes! *throws confetti* That means that not only should you be able to subscribe from there, but you can also leave comments and ratings there if you're so inclined. If you have an iTunes account, you can get to the show page here.

The other big news -- big for me, anyway -- is that I talked about my first marketplace outint as a fiberista in the real world. I went to the Midtown Bazaar on Saturday, May 7th and had a surprisingly good time. Here's a picture of my not-so-elegant booth. It's my first time out, and yes, I'm all crooked, but things will get better.

I'm looking forward to going back. If you're in the area, swing by and say hello!

Shownotes for Ep 2

Shops I talked about:

Rogue Adventures -- one of the first indie dyers I ever bought from. Trish is an awesome talent!

Ethnicity Goddess -- She doesn't appear to be selling spinning fibers anymore, but check out her clothing designs.

Patterns I talked about:

Radiance Shawl by Helen Stewart -- A beautiful semi-circular shawl with lots of different stitch combinations. The pattern has a page that allows you to track percentage completed as well. Genius!

Lovisa Armwarmers -- My next colorwork project when I have some needles free. Aren't they pretty?

Books I reviewed:

Colorwork Creations by Susan Anderson-Freed. Lots of cute charts, Sanquhar motifs and new garment construction.

All That Other Stuff:

Be sure to check out the Clothed in the Lamb podcast to hear Janeen's fantastic tips and information and to get in on my giveaway and discount code, specifically for her listeners.

Swing by and check out the Brass Needles podcast if you're interested in SF, steampunk, costuming and more as well as knitting. Miss Kalendar is awesome!

And don't forget to leave a comment here or in my Ravelry group for a chance at winning yarn and a set of KnitPicks DPNs.
