Episode 101: Remember, Remember

In this episode: A wee P3 roundup; a happy ending for the worst yarn in my stash, proving that dreams do come true, or there are no bad yarns, only bad knitters or some such tosh; a return to weekly podcasting; Guy Fawkes, not just for spotty geeks with too much time on their hands; Bonfire Night means staring hard at mushrooms and our own mortality.

Wovember is a wooly month. Get used to it, and get involved.

Coming soon to a theatre near you, pictures of me, in the awesome sweater. Just waiting for a little autumn sunshine.

Music: The Horses Tail, from Celtic Seas, by James Crisp. US/UK

Sounds: A mix of personal and Freesound Project recordings.

    I was so thrilled when I saw the podcast pop up in iTunes…and then so so crushed when I started listening. At least for me, the audio is a duplicate of episode 100.

    Pretty please make it better?

  3. Ahhh ~ iTunes really is the fourth ring of hells… But, there’s a way to make it come out right, & now I have Brenda audio goodness to clean the house to. Happiness!

    Brenda, you say just the right things. Here in Washington state, we’ve had our first wintery week and I was feeling resentful and down. You made me feel better. I will prepare for Thanksgiving and think of preparing myself for the restoration of winter.

    Thank you so much for mentioning WOVEMBER in your beautifully crafted podcast.

    I love the sounds and the mixing so much; what careful weaving you have done with the audio. I love the reflective Autumnal mood of this episode, the sounds of fires crackling, and the thrifty reuse of the yarn.

    You totally rock x

    A podcast a week, YEAH! It will be summer here, but it will be nice to feel a bit of winter chill through the computer! Your podcasts are excellent, and listening to you talk about knitting and fibre goodies is so nice.

    Yay! You’re back! It was sooooo good to hear your voice, Brenda! I’ve missed you! And you’re absolutely right about the 15 minutes versus an hour. Frankly, it’s just nice to hear from you, the time part isn’t so important. Of course, I’d always accept a longer podcast, but I’d rather hear even just 5 minutes of you checking in than have you not podcast at all because you felt like you needed to put together an hour long podcast. Does that make sense? Anyway, thank you, thank you, thank you! Can’t wait to listen to the next podcast.

    Oh, so very thrilled to see you’re back! I’ve spent the last two months, in which I had neither internet nor television to entertain me, catching up on several missed series of Cast On, and was sad to reach the end. Very glad you’re back!

    I love that (bad yarn) sweater. Is there a pattern or misc stitch info? I didn’t see it in your Ravelry projects.
