Wow, is Blogger ever being a PITA! Slow, cranky, hassling me to come over to the new Blogger at every turn. Kinda suits my mood. Yes, I will convert to the new Blogger – but I seem to have just got this little project to a workable state. I think all the links are working, the gallery is under construction (most of my knitting pictures are pre-digital days and need to be converted), I don’t want to make any more changes, dammit!
Hope someone has some crackers and cheese, ’cause this has been just a weird, blah few days. URL woes, I can’t seem to get away from it. My old URL was taken over by a XXX site – could be kinda funny – but it’s just a total hassle! It’s really taken some of the fun out of doing this whole blogging thing. Then, my entry to a knitting contest evaporated for a few days. Canada Post said it was delivered, the Recipient said they didn’t have it, I was looking for a sword to fall upon… I had a milestone and a half birthday on Monday, and somebody smack me, I am having a very unattractive attack of age angst. Not like me at all. OK. I’m done now.
On a positive note, they did find my parcel this afternoon, after I had died a thousand deaths, and I started my internship on Monday, nice little internet service provider company – in the legal department.
I’ve been working like a maniac to get my January challenge socks (Vintage Sock KAL) done – both to the toes right now – I’ll post a picture when they’re done. The picture above is the beginning of my “Poppy” sweater – I’m doing a totally different yarn and hoping my interpretation winds up doing justice to the pattern. So far, I really like the results.
Below my yarn pr0n for the week. Rowan soft tweed and the Classic Spirit book. This stuff is luscious – I think I want someone to knit me a blanket using it :)!
Winter arrived with a vengeance on Monday – I think I need to make the “adult bonnet” that Cosmicpluto did or something like – is there any hat that would be acceptable to an 80’s girl?
