Hi everyone. Thank you for letting me know about the issues with viewing episode 41. Thank you for your patience as I looked into other options. For now, I have uploaded the episode to a new Podbean account and you can view it here – this may work better on mobile devices. Over the next few weeks, I will continue to “tweek” the video resolution, so any constructive feedback is very welcomed. Also, it looks like ITunes may be in the near future….fingers crossed. Many thanks!!!
Okay folks, apparently there is a Google problem. I am so sorry for the technical difficulties. I’m working on it! It seems you can view from a computer, but not a wireless device. Hmmmmm…..stay tuned and thanks for your patience.
This week is a long one! But don’t let that scare you…the first half (approx. 42 min) of the podcast is the usual knitting/spinning stuff and the second half is all about my recent 2 week Seattle/Olympic Peninsula vacation. Watch however much you would like :) Enjoy!!!!
