Podcasts du Jour

I go back and forth on listening to audio-only podcasts. Typically, I prefer to listen to audio books rather than podcasts, but lately I've been on a huge podcast kick. It all started when I stumbled on The Ghost Story Guys on Instagram. Their Instagram isn't anything to write home about, but the podcast most… Continue reading Podcasts du Jour


Best Knitting Podcasts: 2020 edition

3 years on, and Best Youtube Knitting Podcasts is still one of my top blog posts, so I thought it was time to do an updated edition. Most of the podcasts I shared in that post are still going, though some are on hiatus or have been posting more sporadically as the life situations of… Continue reading Best Knitting Podcasts: 2020 edition


Best Book/Writing Podcasts on Youtube

Last week I shared my favorite knitting podcasts, and this time I thought I'd show you a few of my favorite book related podcasts. Some of these are just review shows, others concentrate on the craft of writing or on publishing. If you were daunted by the long episodes on the knitting list, fear not.… Continue reading Best Book/Writing Podcasts on Youtube


Best Youtube Knitting Podcasts

I feel like there's been some pretty heavy subjects on the blog lately, or maybe it's just been the world in general getting me down. So I thought I would share something a bit more cheerful. Here's a list of some of my favorite knitting podcasts from Youtube. Below, I've embedded the most recent episodes… Continue reading Best Youtube Knitting Podcasts


Tea Break

When last I visited London, we had a daily ritual of restoring ourselves with a pot of tea in true English fashion (okay, so it usually came from Costa and was an excuse to sit down someplace for a half hour or so out of the elements and rest for reasonably cheap, but the point… Continue reading Tea Break


Methods of Procrastination

Every one around me is working. It makes me feel lazy, like there's something I should be doing, but I'm not. I can think of a few things, but none that are terribly pressing at the moment. I'm sure it will come to me at 3 a.m., when I can't do anything about it, and… Continue reading Methods of Procrastination


Yay! No More Pain!

Thanks to my wonderful mother, a former OT, my knee no longer hurts. I guess I've been a bad girl, letting my quads get weak, so my knee cap decided to go for a little walk around the block without me. My mom has the same problem from time to time, so she popped it… Continue reading Yay! No More Pain!


Here, there, everywhere.

I feel like I'm wasting space, because there really hasn't been much going on lately. I picked up the knitting/crocheting again, and have started making slow progress. Nothing has been frogged yet--thankfully. The project that is now a shrug has been torn out so many times that I was afraid I had damaged some of… Continue reading Here, there, everywhere.

Dash and Post

I am wearing my first ever pair of hand knit socks. I am teh awesomeness.Work on the podcast is coming along slow and steady. It would help if we didn't have to keep re-recording things (we've never done this before), and if Garage Band would allow me to record more than just thirty-three minutes, sixteen… Continue reading Dash and Post

Back in the Handbasket

The last few days have not been all that great. I've been trying to get together another loan, going back and forth between two (Completely unhelpful) colleges, my parents, and the loan company. Everything is on hold until Monday. Alice is having the exact same issue, so we're just praying we don't get sent home,… Continue reading Back in the Handbasket
