Episode 83: Shall We Get Acquainted

Steph is the Knittingsamurai on Ravelry and Instagram. There is Ravelry Discussion Group for this podcast Knitting Samurai Plus 1 please join! Feel free to start any topic you’d like in there. 

If you want to catch up on the episodes released prior to this, you can either go way back and check out the 33 episodes of the Expectant Knitter at Or you can go part way back to the beginning of the Plus 1 adventure, that started with Ro’s birth. Episode 1 is available here… the Knitting Samurai Plus 1 Episode 1.

The Blip Thing:
Going forward the podcast will be hosted through the NEW wordpress blog: 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.comwill have the 10 most recent episodes, and feed them to Itunes.
Blip and Blogger: will have the entire back catalog available for viewing in the Blip player, not on itunes.
