Sew Flo bags on Etsy!! If you like nerdy stuff and need a new geeky knitting bag, check her bags out!   (It looks like the shop is on vacation for a bit, but she'll be back soon).  The one I won from her shop is a Small Pyramid Pouch, which is a little small for a knitting bag, but they are available in larger sizes and different styles that would all be great knitting bags.  Even the smaller ones would make great notion bags.

Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum!! And from the Yarn Harlot: Air out your stash regularly!

My method for trying to save my stash:
1. Quarentine until you can get to it, if you can't do it immediately
2. Soak in warm soapy water
3. Microwave the wet yarn (proterin fiber based, no acrylic!) in 2-3 minute segments for a total of 10 minutes.
4. Air dry
5. If you really want to be sure, once its dry, put it in the freezer for a day

This episode is much more knitting heavy than the past couple of episodes and a bit longer, I hope can keep my knitting mojo up this high in the future.  Also, I got a new mic so the sound quality is much better, however it picks up a lot of background noise (cars, my ceiling fan, and my neighbor's bird, etc.) so bear with me until I can work out those kinks.

Welcome!!

Hi everyone, welcome to The Dark Knit Podcast - The Knitter Gotham deserves.  Where knitting and geekery collide.  The rough plan for the show is to start off with a knitting segment, the usual knitting podcast stuff: what I'm knitting, what I'm queuing, etc.  And for the second half, I'll be talking about what is going on in the geek world, or at least the stuff I'm interested in.  Comics, movies, shows, games, etc.  I'm hoping to get some guests for the geek-part eventually, but in the meantime, it'll just be me babbling away about what I like, and hopefully, what you like.

I'll hopefully be uploading my first show tomorrow.  I'm excited to start talking to you all and getting to know you.  I hope you like it and I'll talk to you soon!
