The Yarniacs: A Knitting Podcast

Dec 13, 2013

I am recovering from a cold both as I write this, and on the day we recorded. Thus, it was a very merry low-key episode for me. I mentioned to Gayle that I felt she had to carry the episode and that I had several long pauses while my brain s-l-o-w-l-y cranked into gear. She thought not at all. So there you have it. :)

I do know that we had to pause while recording several times. I had to check on various animals throughout the house and Boo (the cat) makes a jingly appearance that you will hear while we stalk patterns. At one point there is a banging coming from another room. While recording I didn't know what was going on, but post-recording I found Boo was opening some drawers in the bathroom, making mischief!

We hope you enjoy!
