Quick note regarding iTunes. I have been trying to get this show up on iTunes for almost two months. I have been getting weird error messages and have had my request denied a couple of times due to a “bad feed” (like, it isn’t working) when I know for a fact the feed works fine. I’m still trying to get it to work, but for now, you can manually add this podcast to your itunes by clicking Advanced; Subscribe to Podcast and then pasting in this address:  http://knitbytes.blip.tv/rss/itunes/.
