So, no, not much content here lately.
I’ve been working a lot, and furiously knitting away at my mum’s River stole. I started ball #2 last night, which is good and bad all at once. Good, because I’m half done. Bad, because it’s taken me since early March to get this far, and I want to have it blocked and wrapped up by March 31. Small panic, over here in the corner.
That’s also why the blog looks like a construction site. Can ANYONE help with the stupid line down the right hand side? This template was too thin for my liking, and I found where to change the width, but I can’t seem to get that vertical bar, and the header to match up.
Also, I thought blogger had a tagging feature, so I could say, look at all my posts about Rogue by clicking on the appropriate link. I see now that this is typepad. Typepad not good because (a) you have to pay, and (b) as you can tell by the above plea, I’m no good with code. I’ll live. I’ve opened a Flickr account so I don’t link to my LJ gallery. I’d like to keep those separate. Plus Flickr has fun toys.
Come the end of the month, I will be done River, and then I will spend some quality time making this blog look pretty. And gathering together pics of all the stuff I want to make, so I can easily reference and think.
I have bought a few small knittythings recently, a couple weeks ago I went to a yarn store (heaven! I will save my LYS rant for another post) and bought some white sock yarn. Last week I went to Safeway and bought Kool Aid. I’m going to dye sock yarn! I can’t decide if I want self-striping or just mottled coloured. It’s going to be my Project Spectrum: April project (the dyeing, not the socks. I don’t know if I’d get that much done) so I have orange, and pink. There was no yellow, and I’m not really a yellow fan, but orange is an April colour.
My roommates will think I’m batty.
But first, I need to eat more pasta, because I’ll need at least one more sauce jar for this project.
