Episode 4b: More ramblings!


We had some issues with this episode. We couldn't get it uploaded then Val got the episode uploaded just a little while before the support team got it uploaded as well. Val's version was Episode 4 and the support version was episode 4b. We erased episode 4 since 4b was slightly edited. And for some reason Val seems to respond to some of our comments before we even say it! It gets worse as the episode goes on so I hope that it doesn't get too confusing. I tried to fix it but since Val's voice goes over me and Gloria's quite a bit I couldn't just cut and paste it. Sorry!! This was our first time actually recording with all 3 of us in a different location, we're still learning about all these programs. I think we've figured out what is going on and should be able to fix it for the next episode. Thanks for sticking around while we figure out all the technicalities of podcasting!!Download Episode 4b here.In this episode Julianne talks about her move to Ohio, Valerie introduces herself and declares herself the knitting goddess, and Gloria discusses how she is becoming less of an occasional knitter and more of an obsessive knitter. Plus we discuss the importance of gauge, our holiday knitting plans, and how great hand knitted washcloths are.Our new theme music is from the podsafe music network:Crap Tag Your It by Punch AliceJulianne's Ohio Shopping:Knitting Fair Isle Mittens and GlovesPace sock yarnVictorian Lace TodayWoodland Shawl (what I called falling leaves, but this is the one I meant)WebsReady Set KnitKnitters' MercantileKnitters ConnectionLime and VioletWildfoote Sock Yarn - I got the color ragtimeAlpaca with a Twist Fino lace yarnKnitters AlmanacUnspun Icelandic WoolRazzy Tazzy KnitsHogwarts Sock Kit SwapValerie and her fiber life:Vogue StitchtionariesSecret Pal 11Gloria's WIPs:Braided scarfMorehouse scarf kitGloria's Knitting Obsession:Second sock syndromeStash and BurnWickedCentral Park Hoodie - #13Brea BagVal's Yarn Purchases:Wild and Woolly WoolsCascade 220Blue Sky Organic CottonPart bamboo sock yarnJulianne's WIPs:Pop-up pawsHoliday Kal-CalHarrisville Yarns[...]
