Is there a problem with the Web site?
I often work on CraftSanity after midnight, so once in a while there is a problem. Please email me if you see something wrong and I’ll try to fix it. Thanks!
Having trouble listening to the show?
First, you are going to need a high-speed Internet connection. If you are using dial up, I’m afraid you’re going to be in for a verrrrry long download.
Listening on the browser
You should be able to just click on the “Listen to podcast” link on the main craftsanity page and hear the podcast from you Web browser. But a cool way to automatically download the show each week is to use the iTunes program.

How to get iTunes

You can download it at http://www.apple.com/itunes/download

Install iTunes.

To subscribe in iTunes

The easy way
Click on this link and then hit subscribe.

Another way
Run iTunes, click on “Podcasts,” which is on the left side under the “Source” list.

If it doesn’t pull up a list of podcasts, click on “Podcast Directory” near the bottom of the iTunes window.

Once you are connected to the podcast listings, there is a search field on the left side (you might have to scroll down a bit. Do a search for “craftsanity.”

Click on “subscribe”

If you can’t find it, try this…
In iTunes, under the “Advanced” pull down menu option, select “Subscribe to Podcast”

Paste the following into it and hit OK.

http://craftsanity/rss/rss.xml

Everytime you run iTunes, it should look for new podcasts (if not, hit the refresh button on the podcast section of iTunes).

Still doesn’t work? Email me and tell me some of the problems you are running into.

Will your podcast work on mp3 player other than ipod?
I have a Sansa which runs through Rhapsody instead of itunes.
Thanks

Greetings,
Love hearing about the craftyness that abounds. The site has both my husbands wooly items and a couple of fiber pieces.

I love to watch on the youtube insert but find the stops and starts every 3-4 seconds discourages much watching. Do you hear this from others?

Loved your interview too on craftcast…have you both on my itunes subscriptions.

Hi Edie. I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble viewing the videos. The problem seems to be with YouTube. Sometimes videos play smooth, sometimes they don’t. This is one of the drawbacks of providing free content via a free service on the web. I just had this problem trying to view a video on someone else’s channel yesterday. I tried again a few hours later and it was fine. I’m sorry that I’m don’t have a better answer for you. I checked the last video we posted and it’s playing smoother than it did yesterday. Please let me know if you’re continuing to have problems viewing the videos and we can look into the problem some more.

I have just returned to knitting after about 25 years and am feeling really lost. Your videos are very clear and I was wondering if you had a tutorial on “blocking” as I don´t remember ever having heard the term. I used to follow knitting patterns mostly in Spanish, that is probably why, but I´m just finishing my first garment and don´t know exactly how to make it up.
Thank you.

Hi Christine. I haven’t made a video on blocking, but check out this helpful tutorial over at The Purl Bee. http://www.purlbee.com/blocking-tutorial/
Good luck!

With these results, it can be gleaned that the youth is becoming proactive. At least, they’re becoming more aware that their future partly lies in the hands of the leaders they are going to choose.
