Transcript for 11/18’s #knitchat

Sorry it’s so late, but here’s the transcript from the last #knitchat on holiday knitting. Small group but nice chatter about holiday knitting. You can view the transcript here:

It was so fun that I decided to do it again. December 2, 2010 at 5 PM PST / 8 PM Eastern Standard time. I’ll post the questions for discussion ahead of time but the topic will be “Technology and Knitting: How Can Technology Grow our Knitting.”  I’m also researching some tools that might make it easier to participate with the chat online.  I know there are a number of applications for both the web and phone that make tweeting and following discussion #hashtags easier.

From my experience with this chat, I found that using my phone application worked just fine. If you have a Droid or Iphone there are applications for Twitter. One of the participants noted that it wasn’t as straightforward on her Droid, but there may be other applications out there that work great. Also, I was actually on the road while I was chatting so it is possible to be completely mobile. Do not worry, I wasn’t driving 🙂

I’m a Tweeter on Twitter

At least I’m not a twit on twitter.

My Twitter ID is:

I am  following 36 people… (look I don’t have that many friends). I accidentally selected the option to populate twitter contacts with your gmail e-mail book. Now I’m sure there’s some insurance agency in Iowa that’s wondering why they’re being followed by some strange blue-faced Asian lady.
I like checking on the knitters in Twitter by typing “Knitting” in the search. Interesting conversation!
I wonder if following too many people can just lead to confusion.
If anyone wants an knitting follower post a comment on this post with your twitter ID.
I will follow you eagerly if you’re sharing stuff about fiber goodness including knitting, crochet, spinning, dyeing, etc.
