Episode 79: Citron Fous


Steph is the Knittingsamurai on Ravelry and Instagram.  There is Ravelry Discussion Group for this podcast Knitting Samurai Plus 1 please join! We just crossed over 1,000 members!  Feel free to start any topic you’d like in there.  I’m easy going.

If you want to catch up on the episodes released prior to this, you can either go way back and

The Blip Thing:
I’m not comfortable walking away from Itunes.  Personally I watch podcasts through Itunes, and I can see that 2/3rds of you watch me there. 

Going forward the podcast will be hosted through the NEW wordpress blog: http://knittingsamuraiplus1.wordpress.com .  If you watch through Itunes, you’ll need to go in and re-subscribe to the podcast.  Just search for “Knitting Samurai” and the two versions (Blips & Wordpress) will pop-up.  You want to subscribe to the new grey icon, not the original purple one.  That will ensure that you don’t miss an episode when Blip stops feeding itunes.

Moving to wordpress will only allow for hosting the 10 most current episodes.  Ideally I’d love them all to be up there, but the hosting fees would be exorbitant for something that I do as a hobby.  The yearly cost of hosting 10 episodes at my current file size, seemed very reasonable to me. 

Wordpress: http://knittingsamuraiplus1.wordpress.com will have the 10 most recent episodes, and feed them to Itunes. 

Blip and Blogger: http://knittingsamuraiplus1.blogspot.com will have the entire back catalog available for viewing in the Blip player, not on itunes. 

I hope this pleases everyone.
