....but rest assured, you dodged the big bullet!
First, please let me get something off my chest: in my humble opinion, Windows XP is a cr*p operating system that never should've gotten off the drawing board. It has more holes than Swiss cheese & is open to every Tom, Dick & Harry piece of spyware s**t dreamed up by pimply adolescent computer geeks with attitude. And whatever you do...never, EVER....update!
I dare ya to ask me how I came to this informed opinion...I double-dog dare ya.
Whew! I feel better now. :::Grin:::
The big bullet I'm referring to is a rant (another one!) that I had written out in WordPerfect this morning. But after writing it then walking away for awhile, I decided that the acts of writing & reading were cathartic enough, I didn't need to share the finished product.
Sometimes I wish one or two other bloggers felt the same way. :::wink:::
Now - on to knit stuff. Here's the cool new book I've been hinting about:
What can I say - I love Melissa Leapman's stuff. Lots of classic designs in here ....although a few I wouldn't consider wearing at my age. I have a :::cough::: couple of issues with :::cough::::gravity. :::Grin:::
However, I really, really like this one:
Straps that cover other straps, a neckline high enough to cover my :::cough::: gravitational issues, and very cool, flowing knitting lines. That's a definite knit next spring. There are several other sweaters in there that caught my eye...but they have to take a backseat until a few other projects of mine are complete.
Here's the deal on the stash sale. I've been going through & rearranging quite a bit of my yarn & found some that I'll never, ever use. So - instead of listing on eBay right away, I decided to let you know what I'm destashing just in case one or two of you might have a use for it. Over in the "Photo Albums" category you'll be seeing a "Stash Sale" soon. I'll upload pics, descriptions & price. I also have a few books I'd like to pass along - I'll take pics of those & get them uploaded before I leave. Oh - PayPal is my fav way to buy/sell, but I can be talked into taking a check. :)
Speaking of destashing, I won another 6 skeins of Araucania Nature Cotton in "Tobacco" from a fellow blogger. I'm so excited! It's impossible to buy anywhere on line & to find an auction with the exact color I needed was a godsend. Thanks for pointing it out to me Bliss! I'm definitely going to make the biggest, roomiest, comfiest cardi I can with all that lovely cotton.
