Nifty things for you!

I’m part of the fun at Rhinebeck Bingo 2011 (Square and Player!) and I’ll be at Building C, #17 most of the time. CraftLit/Rhinebeck meetup at 11:30 Sat/Sun, then we can poke over to the Ravelry Party.

Pick up a Defarge or bring yours for me to sign and get your very own wristband!

Our GORGEOUS incentive for October 2011

from Marceli Botticelli’s Tea Times Creations!

To clarify location and peoples in Dracula somewhat:
Who ARE these people Harker is going on about?

  • Saxons—Germanic people
  • Hungarians—also known as Magyars (pronounced mad-jar or mad-yar, from Hungarian: magyarok)
  • Wallachia or Walachia (Romanian: Țara Românească pronounced [ˈt͡sara romɨˈne̯askə] or Valahia pronounced [vaˈlahi.a]; archaic: Țeara Rumânească, Cyrillic: Цѣра Румѫнѣскъ / Цѣра Рȣмѫнѣскъ) is a historical and geographical region of Romania.
  • Székelys
  • Atilla the Hun

Episode Two hundred thirteen: Trafficking in Wool

Today, the Third Epoch (Walter’s narrative), sections v-vii of the Woman in White.

Good to be back and start to feel “normal” ish.
New and old friends surround me, as does humidity, heat, mosquitoes, and lightening bugs. Also lemonade and whiskey.
What’s not to love?

Collins—Episode Two hundred five: Lock, Stock, and Boxes

Just a few linky bits for you: my lovely cousin Amy’s blog, Paul Riser’s lovely essay, the Troubleshooter site for issues with the CraftLit App (iPhone, iTouch, Droid), help build an AT-AT to make America great again (giggle), and the sock book of which my wee bitty socks grace the cover.
Lookee!

Please be sure to ask your LYS to stock the book.

You SHOULD be able to see an Amazon widget right below this. It’s one of the ways you can support CraftLit. By starting your Amazon shopping from this point, CraftLit will receive a portion of the profit from Amazon. Pretty nifty. If you can’t see the widget, let me know and let me know which system/browser you’re on.

Book talk begins around 15 minutes.
Listen to 205 audio.

Collins—Episode Two hundred four: Strapped!

NOTE: Trouble with the feed? Try re-subscribing. Some rogue code broke it on 203. Also, for those of you on the Droid/iPhone app, there’s now a “library” iisting for you as a SHOW extra. This lets you know which episodes go with which book.

I’m strapped by Strep, but make it to the mic for you!

Couple of links: Happy Catholic (book linked to from below widget) congrats to Julie Davis of Forgotten Classics podcast. WHOOT!

April incentive: The Elemental Journal

And don’t forget, there’s a free how-to-knit-a-sock eBook for you in the sidebar!

Listen to 204 audio.

Collins—Episode Two hundred three: The Shake Down

UPDATE!
iTunes appears to be fixed! If your iTunes feed is still broken, please let me know. It will mean something much worse is wrong.

Just a few bits and pieces: Road Trip info, things for sale plus dog info, a contract wafer

John Bull wiki, Stockholm Syndrome wiki, Flatworld Knowledge’s nifty online textbook plan, save the world by blogging, Cooperative Press’ Kickstarter Campaign, and a new free eBook for you from me!
