Knitting

The Very Best of Amature Hour Episode 1

So here you have it folks! My first ever full length podcast… complete with reflections in my glasses, non focusing projects and a dog that really wanted in on the action too! The irony being that as soon as I turn the cameras off and settle down to edit Eve and Hutch are as good as gold little monkeys they couldn’t behave when I was filing.  I’ve included some out takes at the end of the filming too. mind you this has taken me a good two days to write and upload the podcast… everything is a learning curve, Eve’s been fractious this morning and so this podcast is brought to you by a frantic rocking motion whilst singing the baby shark song….! Happy easter folks.

So things that I mention and the places I bought them… found them… general information and rambling.
