Episode 2: Curse of the Vanilla Sock

Well, you won’t be hearing about the Vanilla Sock Curse in the actual episode, but you can be sure it exists.  EVERY time I try to talk about my issues with knitting my first pair of vanilla socks, my microphone goes into super-crazy-psycho mode and proceeds to throw tons of feedback at me, thus ruining any chance you might actually hear about my sock knitting adventures.  It’s getting weird.

This weekend I’m off to Seattle and Portland, and I’m hoping to work in a little yarn shopping, even though I just did some yarn shopping at my nearby yarn mecca Paradise Fibers.  (see pictures below)

I’d like to say “oops” here, but I’m pretty excited about my new goods, even if I am breaking my New Years Resolution.

Once I’m back I’ll record Episode 3 and give a full report on all my yarn shopping experiences.  Stay tuned.

SHOW NOTES…thanks for your patience!
