Knitting and Talking To Myself...

There hasn't been much time spent with the Aeolian shawl this week, for some reason. I'm still loving it, but this week just hasn't been a knitting week. I'm not sure why. Well, no, that's not exactly true. 

I think there has been a little bit of resentment happening around here. Perhaps I've been spending too much time on the knitting and not enough time on the man??? He's probably right; I've been a little obsessive about this project. The shawl will get done and it won't take forever. That I know. 

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again... I really love this shawl. I was a little concerned at one point that the beads might be too much of  a contrast, but I 'm liking the contrast more and more now. I was concerned, too, that I might not have enough beads, but it's looking like I'll probably be alright in that department. Phew!

On the podcast front.... thank you so much to those of you who have given me feedback. Your comments have been read, studied, seriously thought about and I've decided that I WILL jump into the podcasting pool. It may take away from knitting time, it will surely take away from John time, it will be a lot of work. All that is true. If, however, I let that stop me from doing this, I've been defeated before I even get started. I know that I'll probably never interview anyone famous; that's alright. They've all been interviewed ad nauseum, I'm sure (but if anyone famous reads this blog and would be willing to be interviewed by me... feel free to contact me); I have some ideas floating around in my little brain and I've taken to keeping a notebook handy for jotting them down. As well, I'm open to ideas from you. You've already given me a few ideas and I thank you!

In the interim, a website has been designed for the podcast the software is waiting for my input. Now, it's just a matter of getting John out of the apartment so I can talk to myself for half an hour or so. Then, I'll put the whole thing together and present it to you, neatly packaged, with a bow on the top. 



Well, colour me embarassed! I had this post published... I thought. It seems I saved it as a draft this morning, rather than hitting the "publish post" button. I guess I wasn't as awake as I thought I was.

It's been a few hours since I wrote the above and things have changed. I now have a podcast up and ready for download!! I'm excited! You can find my podcast at:

Check it out and let me know what you think. Keep in mind, this is the very first installment and it wasn't easy to sit in a room, talking to yourself. *grin*


  1. I just finished listening and writing you an email with comments and suggestions for FUTURE pod casts. I think it's great and look forward to hearing you again :)

  2. I will take a listen tonight. I'm glad you got the working instead of shaw. I can't wait!

  3. I love your shawl, such a pretty design!
