D2K Episode 1 - Testing, testing Getting to Know Marcy

Hello there my precious knitters! Welcome to our humble blog-abode. Please grab your knitting, a soothing beverage, and settle in for a lovely hour of listening to our podcast, "Destined2knit." This is our first episode and we hope that you'll enjoy getting to know Marcy a little bit better.

Episode 1 Audio

Welcome to our first episode where I (Kim,) interview Marcy in order for you to get to know us and for us to get to know each other even better. Enjoy!

As we discuss podcasting we mention one of our favorite podcasts,  The Yarniacs. We are both excited to be attending Stitches West in February.

What's on our Lesson Plan today:

We discuss our goals for podcasting. We are going to focus on LYS's and knitting festivals, groups, guilds and conventions where knitters gather for fun and fiber-y goodness. We will be visiting these venues and interviewing knitters and other exciting and talented people in the knitting world!  Our blog will have a spreadsheet that lists all of our reviews for the local yarn shops that we visit. Come back often  and have a look at our LYS list as you travel and are out and about on your field trips .

How did we meet? At Got Your Goat our local yarn shop.
