Random Tuesday musings

Posted by jackie blue on October 10th, 2006

I’m really glad I chose to alter Starsky’s sleeves to have the cable pattern instead of plain stockinette. Almost done with sleeve #1 thanks to weekend knitting with friends and a slow couple of days at the Mon/Tues. job. Will she be done with this in 10 days? One never knows. One doubts though.

Baby birds don’t necessarily love a bath the first time so putting them under a running faucet might not be the best introduction. (Don’t worry, he’s fine!)

Both my pairs of folding knitting scissors have disappeared. Really have no idea where they are.

One should not leave their cell phone in a jacket pocket when it’s going to be a warm day the next day. Currently without phone.

There’s nothing like a Tuscan bean soup, even when the weather suddenly becomes too warm for soup.

I’m really liking the new Decemberists album.

It’s a good TV night tonight.

Feeds and Sweaters

Posted by jackie blue on October 5th, 2006

It seems my feeds might be a little messed up – if you’re using Bloglines, the old feeds should be updating now but we’ll see – if you’re using any other reader – the feed in the post below (and at the RSS link in the very bottom) SHOULD be working properly – I’m actually having a bit of an error problem with that feed that’s probably server related (edit – now fixed) – but it works in Bloglines for me. I appreciate any warning of feeds not working, and I’m trying my best to rectify the situation.

In the meanwhile, there HAS been knitting around here. Maybe not enough (surely not enough!) to make it to Rhinebeck, but at least it’s something. Here we have Starsky in progress.

I’m looking forward to wearing this one, I think it’s going to be a nice warm cuddly sweater.

Speaking of Rhinebeck, it’s only 2 weeks away. How exciting is that? How FAST is this year going by?

Brand New Look

Posted by jackie blue on October 3rd, 2006

I got tired of futzing around with the design over and over till I found something I was happy with. It’s the story of my life as a designer, it’s never quite good enough. But it was time to move over to new software, so perhaps the design will keep morphing as the impulse hits.You MAY need to update your Bloglines (and other) subscriptions. The new feed is http://www.jackie-blue.com/knit/index.php/feed. And be sure to email me if anything else weird happens.

In the meantime, there’s been knitting. More on that tomorrow.

UPDATE: Your present subscriptions SHOULD work now, if all works as planned.
