England Calling

By now you all know that I'm a bit of an Anglophile. Over the past month or so I've found some new British podcasts to enjoy. It started with the Plurk Podcaster Challenge. Miss Elle is a challenger, so I started listening. She led me to a podcast called Knit Spin Cake. Yes, cake. From there is A Playful Day and the Caithness Craft Collective. These ladies are all from different areas of Britain and have different accents and I love them.
Back to the Challenge for a moment. I got my pattern today. I can't say more than it's in fingering weight - but I'm excited to get to work on it in a couple of weeks. I'm kind of upset, though, about a few of the challengers. When asked who they would be watching they said only the popular few and just don't have time for the rest of us. The idea behind the challenge was supposed to be support for everyone. Maybe if the Popular Few would watch the rest of us the video world wouldn't be so cliquy.
My guitar lessons are going well. I really like playing and making music, even if it is rough right now. Sometimes it's tough to find practice time, what with the kids and the house and the whole food thing, but when I have time I make the most of it. I don't even mind the short nails!
I'm off for now. I'll be back soon with more news from the house of Bobbi.
