Today, I get to skip a rant that I keep meaning to make. I get to skip it because kmkat has already done it. She says much of what I'd like to say about the stuff in folks blogs that ensures spammers and bots don't clutter their comments. I'll happily wait while you read (she has all these cool screen shots! and thus did a much better job than I would do). The short version is: most of these captcha things make commenting HARD ... especially TypePad's insistence that we do it three times per post. I hate them. I hate them a lot. They sometimes mean that a comment I would have made does not get made. (I don't get to play, but you don't get to receive a comment).
So, instead of ranting about that, I'll whine a bit about the return of cold weather (the pool opens today? riiiight). And then think more about knitting.
But before I show you where my knitting has gone... allow me to share with you a little something that Norma sicced on me...(okay all of her blog readers).
smirk. If you are unfamiliar with that Holy Grail flick, you might not get this one. But then, without Eddie Izzard, you wouldn't have gotten Norma's (which I did).
I love this. Graph Jam is dangerous.
Anyway. My knitting has been out and about with me this week. Willow went with me to the girls' piano lessons. It wasn't pretty
I found an insurmountable error. As you can see.... tinking back even one row creates quite the pile of yarn. I'm hoping that one row was far enough. She's back in her wee sack until she gets over the trauma.
Boing experienced some trauma of her own.
I took her with me to shop for bathing suits for the girls (and a few bits of summer wear, like, shorts...
She wasn't impressed by the lighting in the dressing rooms.
And though she was with me today, she declined to be photographed in the same place that "those French sounding socks" and that "unpronounceable shawl" were posing.
Good thing we got those suits.... the pool opened today. Elizabeth's Irtfa'a wasn't so uppity.
The Socks de La Mer was, more or less, in it's element.
(And yes, you do see the beginnings of the toe! I should be kitchenering tomorrow!)
