the TNNA show will be up By tommorrow night… technical difficulties… :P sorry for the delay
I would love to hear you thoughts on this issue.
Sadly, this show is very short. I am having a hard time finding my voice as I switch from an older computer setup to a new one. Still trying to get comfortable with new computer/mic. I think I will be back in full swing again by the end of the summer.
Oh yeah… I have started to play promos for other knitting podcasts again. This week I played one for KnitScape.
I went to TNNA and all I brought you back is this lousy post… OK, this post and and two podcasts. Todays show is a quick overview of my weekend… secrets revealed…
First, all the time below is GMT, so please subtract 4 hours for the real time.
I put all the pieces together into chronological order and have added names and links so that you can find out more about the great people and things I found on the TNNA floor.
