iapm49:Dorchester

On today’s show I sit down with Annissa at Stitch House Dorchester. Her store is the newest kid on the block in Boston. It’s a great space and a lot closer than I thought.

The song I played is Don’t Loose Touch by Against Me.

Finally, I am working with others on starting a Friday night knitting guild in Boston and we need space… if you work at a local college or large corporation near a T stop and can provide some space, please email me at podcast at itsapurlman dot com.

IAPM 44: Loom with a View

The Weaving Room at A Loom with a View
On today’s show:

I yarn-a-lot about my current projects and 2008. I play a recording by Queer Joe and share info about the Men’s Knitting Retreat. Then I sit down and talk with Betsy of A Loom With A View in Newburyport, MA. Finally I rant a little about my Fat Nano and stuff.

Here is the Powerful weaved bag that Betsy talks about on the show, love the colorway. Here is a link to the Hemlock Ring Blanket project and the KAL at WEBS. Here is a link to the Mostly Merino site where I made the Very Simple Shawl project. This was a great first shawl project, so fast, so easy, so pretty…

I have a new. simpler email address for you to send me your thought, podcast@itsapurlman.com. I have also updated my flikr account.
