I’m going to Wonderwool on Saturday! I’m really excited! In addition to it being my first ever visit there it’s also going to be my first yarn festival in a few years.

I’ve also decided to try and record a few audioboos while I’m there – it’s sort of an audio Twitter in that you can make short recordings that get posted to their website. If I can I’ll post them while I’m at Wonderwool but if the networks are congested then I’ll post them once I get home.  If you’re an audioboo member already then you can follow my feed but you don’t need to be a member to listen to the interviews just click here.

I’ll be wearing my Ravelry badge so if you see me on Saturday please say hello :)

KnitCast on hiatus…

Posted in Uncategorized on March 12th, 2012 by Marie Irshad – Be the first to comment

for the foreseeable future. I’m certainly not done with podcasting but I don’t have the time for it right now. I hope to bring it back later this year but can’t make any guarantees.

In the meantime I’m running a competition to win a copy of Norsk Strikkedesign on my knitting blog. The competition closes over there on March 18th.

No podcast for November

Hello all. It’s not been a great month for me as you’ll know if you read my personal blog. And now I have chronic toothache! I have an infection in the root of one of my teeth which will be removed next week.

As a result I’m putting the podcast on hold for a month. So Knitcast will be back on December 1st. When I hope to be feeling a lot better!

No KnitCast this month.

Sorry guys but what I was planning for this month’s edition hasn’t worked out so there will be no new KnitCast for September. I’ll be back in October.

In the meantime I will be running a competition on the website to make up for the lack of a podcast this month.

Keep checking here for more info.

And speaking of competitions – Thanks to everyone who entered the competition to win a copy of Gifted by Mags Kandis. I’ll be announcing the name of the winner in the October podcast :-)

Lucy Neatby interview update

Posted in Uncategorized on July 10th, 2010 by Marie Irshad – Be the first to comment

Hello all,

Some members of the Ravelry KnitCast group, and Lucy herself, told me that the interview cut off suddenly! I checked the file and the last few minutes had been cut off when it was turned into an mp3.

I’ve now re-exported the interview and uploaded it so you can hear those final minutes. You’ll need to redownload the interview in order to hear those extra minutes.

Sorry about the glitch!

As some of you have already noticed the link in the previous post didn’t lead to KnitCast 30 – Crafting Vacation at all but to the Lucinda Guy interview! The link in the podcast feed was fine but somehow I messed up with the one in the post. Sorry about that! It’s all fixed now :)
