BLOGcast – Episode 1

I’m so excited to announce that I will be joining the ranks of the (many fabulous) podcasters, but, as a BLOGcaster. For me, it’s about the writing. 

I want to start out by saying THANK YOU for viewing my first (ever) BLOGcast. I think I may have made up this word, but it really does fit. This episode will give you an idea what to expect from me. I have lots of fun things to share with you. My hope is that you will come back time and time again.

So, let’s get started…grab your favorite beverage, your knitting or current WIP, and hang out with me for as long as you’d like, or as long as it takes you to devour every last word.

This BLOGcast will post every two weeks. I will have various other posts along the way, though, who knows…I could change my mind at any moment. That happens often. 🙂

WELCOME
The one thing that will be front and center every time is a {warm welcome, virtual hug} from the Diva. Because, without my readers, I wouldn’t be spending time writing this, showing you that, and chatting it up about whatever.

Let me start by says a BIG Thank You for joining me on this fun adventure into the world of Dishcloth Diva, or better yet, Deb. 

LIFE IS GOOD
This is where I’ll be sharing my WIP’s and FO’s with you. I can have anywhere from 1 project on the needles to, oh, who knows how many projects on the needles. As far as Finished Objects, well, that depends on the WIP’s. I may even throw in a book review every now and then. Those are always fun! Don’t you agree? Though, this could also fall under Enabling. Sigh…

Life happens right? I’ll keep it knitting related. But, I have to say, I’m a quilter, reader of good fiction, love a fresh new recipe, and yes, I crochet. I love a good photo-op moment. So, if the wind shifts and it snows, or the sun shines through my window, I will probably snap a picture and share. Music finds itself in constant ear shot of me most days. My favorites will be shared, and hopefully they can become yours as well. If not, that’s ok. 

So, as life happens, I may change up my craft. Nothing wrong with that, right? Life is (absolutely) Good! 


                                                                                     

DIVA ENABLES
Oh yes, I can! I find myself picking up the yummiest hand painted, hand dyed yarns around. Not to mention the fun favorites I always seem to grab every chance I get. Sock Yarn. A huge addiction of mine. Needles that I find glide well, you’ll hear about those too.

Fiber related enabling will be shared. Guaranteed!

 

FAVORITE PATTERNS I’M STALKING
We all know we love to sink deep in the trenches of Ravelry, for hours sometimes. We grab our laptop or iPad and sit for hours and put pattern after pattern into our library or que. You don’t have me fooled, you know you do it. 🙂

Sometime the emails I receive from various companies have patterns that take me off in another direction… 

TECHNIQUES
Occasionally, I’ll share a technique of two that has fascinated me. Maybe a stitch that I found, or…well, maybe you’d like to see something specific?


GIVEAWAY
I’d like to do giveaways. That will mean one thing…to win, you will be required to leave a comment below or in my Ravelry Group in a specified thread. Sound good?  Yarny stuff goodness!

Well that ends Episode 1. I’m, once again, excited to be a part of this world. Thought, I’ve chose to do my way, I think it will still be fun and a time for you to sit comfortably in your favorite chair, sip on your favorite beverage, and devour my content.

So, until next time…

How does all this sound? Today is Tuesday March 11, 2014. So, two weeks from today, you will find our 2nd BLOGcast. This one was to let you know what to expect and how often to expect it. 

I’d love to hear your comments. Is there something else you’d like me to cover? I’m open to suggestions…I’m flexible. I’ll open a thread in my Ravelry Group where you can also leave your ideas.
