Welcome to the first show. If you'd asked me six months ago if I had any plans to do a podcast, my answer would have been "No". I knew about pod-casts, in fact I'd been listening to pod-casts from the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) since they had put their beta system up in 2005, and one from a group of Everquest 2 gamers, but I had no intention of becoming a pod-caster. This week's essay (yes I stole the idea from Brenda Dayne at Cast-On) sort of details the journey.
The book I reviewed in the pod-cast is Knitter's Handbook by Montse Stanley.
The cardigan I'm knitting for mum for Christmas is the Striped Cardigan from threads&more.
Look for the next show next weekend, once again, I'm planning on recording it on Saturday (Australian time) and posting it sometime on that day.
The essay is available here.

This is really just a place holder so that I can test how things are working and get some music organised for the real first episode.
