Comments: First Randoms of Spring

At least yarnovers are easy to correct and blocking takes care of any wonkiness. It's not like trying to correct a k3tog that you missed!

Aw, the miniskein event made it to your sidebar! :)

WOW, you ARE reading a lot of books at once. Do you think working at a bookstore makes this worse? I vaguely remember that when I worked at B Dalton's, I always had a lot of books going.

I'm having the same problem with Branching Out -- I find I'm using my lifelines a lot, because unless I'm thoroughly concentrating I make silly mistakes.

I'm relatively new to these myself, but LOVING them. Definitely check out Quirky Nomads, which is often mentioned on Cast On.
For other things... I kind of like the Rick Steves travel podcast, he talks about interesting places that I'd like to go :)
There are quite a few NPR ones -- entire shows, like Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, but also some "summary" podcasts with collections of, say, several book-related snippets for the week.

Let me know what other good things you find, I'm getting addicted!

Missed a YO? I guess that's what happens when you blog and knit at the same time! LOL!

I'm loving podcasts, too. I actually never bothered listening to any until I learned about Cast On by Brenda Dayne. :)

Oh, I SO agree with you about the podcasts. My favorite knitting one: Pointy Sticks.

Re: podcasts, I'm a big fan of Eat Feed (which has been a bit slow in updating since its last episode), Rick Steves (as Tracy mentioned), and KEXP's Song of the Day (free new music every day!). I download a bunch more, but those would be the three I definitely listen to every episode of.
