So this week we have something a little different.
As crazy scheduling and life stuff prevented us from getting together and doing a traditional podcast around the weekend of the Knitters’ Frolic, we took the show on the road to our knitting group, most of whom were with us at the Frolic. There’s discussion about the vendors and goodies we found at the Frolic, as well as discussion on a bunch of other topics: the local Agricultural fair, our hopes for Iron Man 3 the night after we recorded, some geeky things we’d seen that week, reminders that it *was* Beltane the night that we recorded…
…Oh, and some discussion about a robot inadvertently drawing certain parts of the male anatomy on Mars. You know, the usual.
Of course as this was recorded in our usual cafe and my iPod Touch proved to have a slightly more sensitive mic than I expected, my apologies for the background noise. I’ve tried to cut out the worst of it, as this is edited down from the nearly two hours that we talked. We definitely know what NOT to do for the next time!
Stick around to the end, however, as there’s a promo for a soon-to-be-released podcast that our listeners might be interested in! In a few days, you’ll be able to find the Knotty Girls Knitcast at http://knottygirlsknitcast.wordpress.com!
We’ll be back to our regular scheduled programming soon, so stay tuned!
