I will now take a moment to apologize for slaughtering grammar on a daily basis on my blog. After working so many years with numbers, my writing suffers. As an engineer I used to write alot of reports, but as a Financial Analyst, I hardly wrote at all. Except for emails. If you cannot accept my apology and really freak out about it, relax and just see here. I do have to say that DH and I mourn America's loss of the adverb. Especially in annoying TV commercials. Would it kill someone to add -ly onto the end of a verb?
Meanwhile, I struggle to figure out what the heck it is I want to do for a career next. I need to do some soul searching. Several people have suggested that I need to bottle my homemade salad dressings. It is an idea but I don't know how to start in this town. In Austin, I would know exactly where to go, as the town has set up facilities for gourmet entrepreneurs to educate themselves and process their foods in a facility until they can launch their own full-scale business. I would want to perfect more dressings first.
Here are some pics of the other things I bought during the Knit In.
Sorry, I did not want to take the beads out of their bags yet, but they are shiny purple ones, with gold, silver and different shiny colored-sheens on them. I hope my MIL likes it.
Lamby sock kit:
Won this during the Stash Auction for $13. Even though it is worsted weight and does not make a practical sock, I thought it would be great fair isle practice. And who can resist little lambies?
If you haven't already listened to the pointy sticks podcast, you should check it out. I love listening to her because I used to live in Houston (and Austin), and her accent reminds me of Texas. And I am entering her contest.
- Why you love to knit socks, why you hate to knit socks? I love to knit socks because they are fast, portable, allow you to experiment on a small project, and are 3 dimensional garments with structure.
- What sock patterns that you love? Anything beyond basic rib!
- My latest sock find. I love Socks That Rock. But that is not earth shattering.
- Your favorite sock method. I still love rickety old bamboo dpns, but I also enjoy the magic loop.
- A neat sock trick that you have learned. To prevent getting toe ears on top down socks, slip the last stitches over the next stitch on the ends before your Kitchener.
I have also just joined project spectrum. When I figure out how to do buttons better on my blog, I will start linking buttons.
