My friends and I have successfully released the first two episodes of our podcast!! It's called the M.A.D. Podcast, (it stands for Media Analysis and Discussion) and on it we discuss music, movies, books, other podcasts, and more; anything that can be classified as "media" is a viable topic. So, check it out at http://themadpodcast.libsyn.com/, and in a few days, you'll be able to search for it on iTunes. Our first two episodes are about Prince Caspian and the Twilight series, respectively.
I went to Joann's (a craft store) the other day, and this time I was unable to withstand the temptation. I bought 2 skeins of some gorgeous, unbelievably soft yarn called Angel Hair, and 3 skeins of cotton Sugar and Cream yarn. The Sugar and Cream is going to become reusable shopping bags eventually, but I just couldn't keep my hands off the Angel Hair. Even though I have way too many projects going right now, I put them all aside to work on the Wavy Gravy scarf from the book Stitch and Bitch Nation. The yarn's so amazing to work with, but I wouldn't suggest using aluminum needles with the yarn. It's so soft, it's slippery and would just slide off aluminum needles. I used my favorite bamboo needles, and even then the yarn is super slippery. But oh so soft!!! The Wavy Gravy pattern is awesome, too. It's simple enough to work on at Honk rehearsal while waiting for my cues, but interesting enough that I don't get bored. I love it!
I'd also like to thank Knitting Pattern Central for posting my fingerless gloves pattern on the site!! I'm so excited, I feel like a published knitting designer now! Okay, it's just a link to a blog post, but still! Yay! At the Knitting Pattern Directory, look under Mittens and Gloves. My pattern is there under Super Funky Fingerless Gloves! Awesome.
So, yeah. That's it. Bye for now!
