Knitty Nora has been alleviating my boredom at work! It's a podcast I found on iTunes, there's not many of them but I really like the approach and humour. It is proving hard to concentrate on podcasts AND get work done, but hey!
My other favourite podcast is Yarncraft, again available free from iTunes, it's American but the presenters are down to earth and it has a blog that links to all the items they talk about. It's from the Lion Brand Yarn and if you register on the site you can get access to free patterns.
I've also signed up to Ravelry (HoldMyHand) but I'm still trying to work it out!
I'm hoping to find some help for DPN, as I STILL can't get the tension right, even after numerous tries and different approaches!!
