Knitting on the Porch, Sheep and Wool!!


Maryland Sheep & Wool was fantastic as always!!! In the video, I chit chat about my purchases, the fair, and of course, sheep! There’s some talking, there’s some video, there are some photos – enjoy! I do have to say though, I’m getting old my crafty friends. I am so beat in the video. I wanted to just hold off and record it today, but Joe was like, no no, record while everything is fresh. I think it would have been equally as fresh today, and probably a bit more coherent. Oh well! But, I do think I’ve worked out the sound with my new lapel mic. Now, I just have to work on the camera angle. I’ve found that the best way to look into the camera of my ipad is to have it oriented vertically. Unforunately, when I import it in to iMovie, it imports horizontally, cutting off my head. I think I just have to move the camera back, and have more room above my head when I film, so that when it rotates, that head room is what will be cut off. The real solution, of course, is to put my camera or our video camera on a tripod, import the video onto my PC, and edit the movie with my Adobe Software. But, when I decided to do some video for the blog, I really wanted to keep it simple simple simple – and iMovie is just that. You just drop, plop and roll. So, we’ll see.

But, for now, enjoy my woolly journey!

    Hope you sort out your recording woes! Perhaps Susannah’s course will help?!
