Life just got harder

I am so sorry that I didn’t get episode 3 up.  And now I am wondering if I am going to.  On Friday, my mother and I lost our home to fire.  She lost everything and I lost most everything except my bed and some clothes that I’d already moved to Sonny’s house.

I will try to get the episode up tomorrow and record a new episode this week.  Fortunately I didn’t lose the stash prize because it was in my car waiting for me to address it and mail.  Ha!

I’m not ready to talk about the stash that I lost….

Episode 3 Where I’m still learning Sony Vegas

Well, this took way to long to get posted.  I’m really sorry guys.  I did get it filmed on time, it was rendering it and uploading it that

 

 

Edit: Well that sucked!!!  After 8 hours of a third rendering, it only saved two minutes.  I’ll try again tonight.

Origins of “The Knotty Knitter”

As I prep for the next vlog I wanted to give some history about myself and the title, “The Knotty Knitter.”

Many years ago, I met someone online via meet-up.  She and I started a knitting group called, “Knit 2gether.”  After a couple years, our membership started to grow and one of the newer members Angel, came up with the name, The Knotty Knitters.  The other original member and I at first balked at this name change and felt it was, “presumptuous.”  It wasn’t long though that I started to like the name and so did the rest of us.  It fit.  We were all a bit naughty especially me and my mouth.  Hahaha!

Since then Angel and her husband Dan became busy with life and had left the group.  New membership came and went.  Some of them, I began to wonder why.  Now that I am The Knotty Knitter and the old group is off doing their own thing, I know why and I feel a huge, huge, huge amount of guilt.  We ran them off with our closed minded clickiness.  If they didn’t like what we had to say, we actually made an effort to make them uncomfortable.  At the time, I didn’t think anything of it until it began to happen to me.

I since quit going and haven’t attempted to find another group.  I find that I am just so busy all the time that I don’t want to commit myself to something like that.  I have over stepped myself with a vlog as it is.  Hahaha!  But, I hope in the future when things settle down, maybe I can get a new group going.

Ep. 2 Coming Soon

I managed to get episode 2 recorded today.  It ran longer than I planned, so It is going to take a while to upload.

 

Thank you for your patience guys, I’m really sorry this is taking so long.

Life happens

Ugh!  Life happened today and I didn’t get the vlog done.  I am so sorry.  Please forgive me.  I will try really hard to get it done this weekend.
