Podcast Episode 04: New camera!

So… This is my first post and episode since I became a PhD! There was a change of set because… I got a new camera from my colleagues, friends and boyfriend as a PhD present, which takes Podcast recording to a whole new level! I’m sorry for the road and railroad noise coming from outside the open windows, but even though I recorded at 8am, I had to keep them open to prevent the room from heating up in the Barcelona summer weather…

Also, I’m sorry it took me so long to post it here, since the video has been up since Tuesday – I’ll try to get better at posting everything at the same time on next one.

Here’s the video:

And here are the show notes, that can be found on my Ravelry Group:

Finished objects:

I finally have more than one finished object to show! No wonder, after it took me more than 5 weeks to record another episode…

Questions and answers:

I answer questions by vilkaknits, knittingilove and cherylkazee.

Local Yarn Shops that I mention…
… in Barcelona:

… in the Basque Country:

And… let me know if you’d be interested in a relaxed knit-along featuring Pure Joy or Hansel half version. The secretism behind why I hadn’t organised this KAL yet is this beautiful yarn that I was waiting to receive, and I wanted to cast on straight away (which I received this Tuesday morning right after I recorded the Podcast Episode)!:

It’s the new colourway “Delta” in Greta and the Fibers Raval Mezclum. Isn’t it beautiful? It can be found in her online shop.

Thanks for watching and happy knitting!
