I put out a lot of content this weekend live from TNNA… Sadly, the video didn’t work out they way I wanted, but the audio updates and images are great.
Here is a list of all the things I put up:
AUDIO UPDATES (click on the top right play button for them all)
VIDEO UPDATES (What I could do with it)
EVERYTHING and MORE UPDATES
So, no one else was throwing an after party.. so I took it upon myself to put togther a mixer/cocktail party… and now I am looking for a head count. If you are going to be at the Maryland Sheep and Wool and are looking for some fun at night… come out… knit… socialize… etc…
Please help spread the word for about this on your blog/podcast…. and ask others to share as well. I have a room for 150 -200 and I am sure that we can fill it.
Look, I know that there is no show. See… when I have no computer and fils missing, it’s hard to put on a show. So instead I am gong to distract you with some photos of a cute little girl who I knitted a hat for from the Itty Bitty Hat book:
Ok… so my computer is in the I.C.U. right now. Because of this I have not been able to get out the three great interviews I have currently. Please hang in tough with me. I will try and put together the 20 stories day on New Years day with my wifes computer, but the other interviews are on my computer that crashed…
Please feel free to send in a story for the 20 stories show (see last post)
So I was listening to This American Life yesterday and they did a show where they crammed 20 stories into an hour. The radio show was inspired by a theater group in Chicago that has a similar theme to it. This concept of short story telling seems like a lot of fun to me.
So in true short story fashion(you can’t get much shorter than a twitter message), I twitted my intention to do a show with 20 stories. The response so far is excellent and I should have 20 stories soon enough. If you would like to participate here are the ground rules:
- I need a 2-3minute mp3 or wav recording of you telling your story that loosely relates to casting-on (as in starting a project)
- I need your name (as much as you would like to give), title (if it applies, mine would be head host of itsapurlman), and location (again, as much as you would like to give up… I would be Boston)
- I need your permission to use the audio
- I need it by January 1st ( will put the show together on January1st)
Please feel free to put all the info above in one recording and place it in my drop box. (I will edit out everything but the story, the rest is for housekeeping) If you cannot record on your own, try using the voicemail number 646-402-5686 x53198 (this will end up in the drop box.
If you have any questions, comments, or would like to let me you are on twitter (and are a listener of my show) feel free to leave a comment here or contact me at twitter. (better than email because everyone else who has the same question can see the answer).
I am trying out a new theme this week. Let me know wat you think…
So I have been recieving links about this video from family. It a segment in the LA Times about a bus being covered by fiber in Mexico by Knitta Please. Now, I know she does knitted pieces and I know she is all about breaking perceptions of knitting… something about knitting and grafffitti being a little less granmotherly… and I think the bus is awesome…
She’s crocheting… she’s crocheting the bus (think soilent green). In the video she has a crochet hook in her hand. Is it too much for her to say I am crocheting most of this bus? Or is there perhaps another word for general fiber activity goodness?
I feel like not explaining this to people will confuse the muggles… and it confuses me a bit to. I like to know technique and fiber content of FOs.
