Rank #3: Introducing CrochetCast!
Oh my gosh. Well, I guess I've gone and done it again -- jumped in and started a new venture. Pretty much spur of the moment (so what else is new?), I've decided to start a crochet podcast since there seem to be none out there (according to Brenda Dayne's most recent episode of Cast-On). And well, we just can't have that.
Since I really have no idea what I'm doing with the techie side of podcasting, I pray you'll forgive me for being the amatuer that I am and for all audio imperfections. I promise to try to learn the software associated with audio editing and the like prior to the next episode.
Please let me know what you'd like to hear in this podcast. Music? Yes or no? And if so, what kind? What kind of "stuff" do you want to hear while you crochet? Do you like interviews? Essays? Knock-knock jokes? Do tell!
