As I was knitting thew gusset and heel on my Halcyon Sock yesterday, I noticed something going on with the striping that usually does not occur for me.
The other side:
Usually if I get a pool on one side, there’s no stripe on the other. I think this is very cool.
The sock is coming along nicely — I should finish it tomorrow.
Do you all know about the e-zine Knitting Purls? I found out about it recently because its creator is one of my Plurk buddies. It is delivered via email and contains all sorts of good stuff. To subscribe, send an email to infoATknittingpurlsDOTcom.
It is official. The winner has been chosen: Mindy, who in comment #248 suggested “Stranglehold”” by Ted Nugent. Thank you to everyone who offered music suggestions!
While I did not purchase “Stranglehold,” it reminded me that I wanted to get “Little Miss Dangerous,” so I did.
I logged into the iTunes store last night, redeemed my gift cards, and purchased 52 songs. Wanna know what I bought? I posted the list here.
If that list looks lacking in a lot of areas, bear in mind that I already have a whole lot of music, and this is just what I got yesterday. Thanks again for all your great suggestions! I’ll probably not need to go on a music-buying spree for a while now.
Sorta scary story:
I recently got an iPod Touch and was showing it to a much-younger coworker who is into electronic toys. We were flipping through the album covers and came to one by the Rolling Stones. She said (I kid you not) “Isn’t Rolling Stone a magazine?”
Kids today . . .
Lucy’s New Toy
Lucy has a new toy, very kindly sent to her from our friend Opal. It’s a canary:
I offered it to Lucy:
She likes it!
She likes it alot.
She might have gone a little nuts over it . . .
Lucy sez: “Thank you, Ms. Opal!”
Opal recently opened an Etsy shop, by the way. Check out the gorgeous handspun BFL I got!
