#33 Your Knitting Circle

1. Do you feel like you are part of a knitting circle here with Sharon and other She-Knits listeners?

I am going to change my schedule for now to podcasting the 2nd and 4th of the month instead of every week. So next cast will be Jan. 9 or 10th. I hope I am not letting anyone down. I want to continue to record regularly however the every week gig wasn't feeling pleasureful it was feeling pressure filled. I hope you all understand and stick around. I know you all want me to have fun with it...right?

I still plan to check our and write in the She-Knits Podcast group daily. Feel free to start your own topics in there and please post your FO's and thoughts!

Check Friday nights or Saturday morning for the Whatchaknitting Saturday thread. That is a great fun part of our Knitting Circle.

Hi Sharon,

Thank you so much for your sweet comments and for posting the picture of my little owl. :)

I'll miss your weekly chatter, but understand COMPLETELY. I can't imagine, really, how you've managed to be weekly for this long. I'm thrilled that you'll still be around and I'll pop in and continue to be a part of our knitting group from time to time.

Have a wonderful New Year!

Hi Sharon,
Another good article on self publishing/publishing is at the Girl From Auntie blog

Lots of food for thought.

Thanks for that idea of starting clean in 2008 by ripping those ufo's. I think I might just do that too!

Hi Sharon,
I was looking on Itunes to see if there were any business podcast at the same time I was searching knit patterns on the web to decide a new project.
I accidently typed knitting into my podcast search and found your show.
That was Friday. Since than I have taken the weekend after listening to episode #33 to catch up on all the other old episodes.
I just wanted you to know how much I love these.
Thanks for sharing with us!
