About Me

My photo
Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Another really great day.

All but one of my to-do’s, to-done. Lunch with my attorney for Administrative Specialists Day [lunch with the other two, tomorrow]. One of my co-workers did 92.5% of a fiddly task for me while I transcribed a couple of tapes for my attorney.

I am still full of chicken fried steak from lunch. In theory it is almost dinnertime. In practice, I am likely to grab a smaller dinner than usual, in the interests of culinary sanity and what I laughingly and lovingly call my waistline.

Not much knitting so far today, but there is Knit Night tonight, and I am looking forward to that.

Tola, you asked so nicely for pictures of all these hats which are flying off my needles. Patience, grasshopper. When I have my new computer assembled and all the peripherals connected [yes, Firstborn, including the iPod (which I am getting really excited about if truth be told)] then I will do a nice montage of the finished hats.

Did I mention that I have figured out how to access my Google Reader on my phone? I can’t embiggen the daily dose of Non Sequitur, but everything else cooperates reasonably well.

Also to Tola, I have been knitting a few decades longer than you have. My needle collection would not fit into a couple of shoeboxes. I figure that when I have everything corralled, there will be three Namaste circ files and [eventually] a KnitPicks modular needle organizer, and probably a DP organizer for each length. Most of mine are 6” or 7” needles, but some are longer, and I am amassing an impressive collection of 4” needles, suitable for the smallest doll hats or the fingers of honest-to-goodness gloves if I ever get that courageous.

It is now 5:00, and I am going to pull up the blog and post this, then get the heck out of Dodge.
