Episode 41

Yee-ha! New corriedale cross fiber and a skein of Nefarious sock yarn ("Jim Jones") from Cosmic Fibers. Great stuff! Go raid the etsy shop! Link below.

What's On My Hook/Needles: Nearly done the knitted cowl, not much on anything else--still knitting- monogamous. I'm still spinning fiber from Dyeing for Colour and the fabulous Lisa Souza Batt "Elektra". The lazy kate from SpinSanity is my new yarn-processing best pal.
A Strategy: Anger 101--Triggers and containment.
Something I Really Like: The "Golden Moments" at dawn and sunset.
Blather: DharmaFey of Socks In the City and Cosmic Fibers, and Bellatrix between them save me after a harrowing event.

The New Donations Button

So I added a Paypal button for donations at the top right of this page.

Let me tell you, I feel really weird about this. But I would rather I had a stable place to put offered donations than in my pocket, as I did last week. (grin--thanks, Nathan!)

This is not a threat or a demand. The podcast costs $10 per month so far! I am already able to finance 2.5 months from the store and another half month from Nathan and have an offer for another month from The Knitmores (yes, I love you both.).

So we are paid up for quite a while already!

For now, if you donate $10, I'll make and mail you a distaff. As soon as enough money accumulates, I will look at other freebies from the store.

I am also looking at purchasing web storage to maintain an archive of previous episodes.

You all are making it possible. But, if all else fails, hey, I can still manage $10/month for Libsyn! So no pressure!

Episode 01--Re-post

For those who have requested it, I am re-posting the old episodes on Libsyn.

And thanks to Bellatrix for this episode's image!



We now have a store selling CogKNITive goodies. All profits go to finance the podcast, especially the Libsyn account. Get your CogKNITive gear!

To see some of the offerings and find a link to the entire gallery, go all the way to the bottom of this page.

And PLEASE feel free to suggest other sayings or design ideas or whatever. All suggestions welcomed!

Episode 40 is Live!


Look! New Drop Spindles! MaineWoodsYarns on left and Yorkieslave's on the right. They're in a nest of fiber from YorkieSlave.

A new podcast! Knitlark Lane--another great podcast reading great literature to us!

What's On My Hook/Needles: Nearly done the knitted cowl, not much on anything else--I've gone monogamous. I'm spinning fiber from Dyeing for Colour on a lovely new spindle from Yorkie Slave. I'm also ripping my way through felted green fiber from who-knows-where on a spindle that really belongs to Lexicom from Maine Woods Yarns--a GREAT spindle. And still working at the fabulous Lisa Souza Batt "Elektra".
A Strategy: Anger 101--anger v. sadness and disappointment, and a bit about triggers.
Something I Really Like: Chocolate Shakes from McDonalds--and apologies up-front for singing again .
Blather: Some drama back on Level 2 and more about life on 4.

Episode 39 is Live!


That's a distaff for drop spindlers in the picture, in case you are wondering.

What's On My Hook/Needles: I've turned my attention to the knitted cowl once more, but the paca-peds socks are done and wonderful! I'm spinning Lisa Souza fiber and fiber from Dyeing for Colour. I've ordered spindles from Maine Woods Yarns and from Yorkie Slave. I received my lazy kate for drop spindlers from Spinsanity, and it's wonderful!
A Strategy: the research on prayer
Something I Really Like: the movie Kung Fu Panda.
Blather: Bits and pieces and farewell to Black.

Libsyn has screwed up my account!

They are saying that I have already used up half of this month's account--but I have not even posted anyhting since the account renewed on the 6th of April!

So no new episodes until I can work this out with them.

Sorry, everyone. Hang in there--I am sure we will get this fixed in a day or two. I will edit episodes to post asap in the meantime.
