Episode 6: The All Owl Podcast

Filed under: Crafting, Podcast — Tags: , , , , , , — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 9:49 AM

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for checking out the podcast this week!

So in the continued adventures of making this podcast, this episode was recorded on my tablet. I’m happy with the video quality, but there is a low-level whine in the background of the whole episode. If that sort of thing bothers you (or if you use earbuds to listen) you might want to pass on this episode and join us for the next one. I have, however, figured out what caused it, so we should have none of that issue the next time!

Notes for projects mentioned:

 

Owl Puffs by Jenna Krupar (Retro Lemon) in Bernat Softie Chunky on 4.5mm needles

Trillian Shawl by Martina Behm in Fleece Artist 2/6 in Stone on 4.0mm needles

Ginny’s Cardigan by Marie Chiba in mystery yarn on 3.0 and 3.5mm needles

 

Books mentioned:

 

Knit to Flatter by Amy Herzog

Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton

GreenStockings Podcast Episode 1

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , , , , , — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 7:53 AM

Hey you guys! I made a podcast!

I had such a blast making this first episode! It’s a little rough around the edges though, so please bear with me as I work to get the best image quality out of my camera. The things that I’ve learned so far are:

1. Set up the camera closer! I’m sorry that the sound isn’t the greatest – if you turn up your speakers you should be able to hear most of it, but it’s a little scratchy sounding, and I’m sorry that I sound like I’m mumbling a lot!
2. MORE LIGHT. I’m looking more than a little orange in this first episode, but I think a couple of extra desk lamps should make me look much more like my gorgeous self! (and get a better focus from the camera)
3. The batteries run out in the camera at almost exactly 25 minutes… so I get cut off in this first episode, I’ll know better for next time!

I am so looking forward to recording again next week.

This is Green Stockings!

Filed under: Books, Crafting, Events, Food, Kids, Montreal, Nerdliness, Podcast — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 7:20 PM

Welcome!

You’ve stumbled across the corner of the internet taken up by the crafting empire, GreenStockings, ruling overlords of a small ground floor apartment in Montreal, QC.

GreenStockings is a small time crafting outfit immensely concerned with knitting, but also with sex-positive feminism, life with a toddler, sewing & other crafting, the city of Montreal, and Unitarian Universalism. GreenStockings is a one-woman operation with immense support from a spouse affectionately known as the HusBear. GreenStockings may not be much of a money-making outfit, but it’s definitely a fun-making, clothes-making, décor-making, mess-making (just ask Bear), laundry-doing, rarely-cooking, but frequently nap-taking crafting adventure!

Please feel join us by following the blog, following us on Instagram (@green_stockings), Facebook (Green Stockings Crafts & Creative Events). We also have a Ravelry group (GreenStockings Creative), and feel free to friend me (GreenStockings) on Ravelry.

You can reach us by email at greenstockings@gmail.com
