Lisa wants a story. And, what Lisa wants, Lisa gets.
Let’s see now . . .
1) I’m becoming a grown up in this old internet world . . . I just (all by myself, mindyou) renewed the kenaiwriter.net domain. Woot! Of course, I couldn’t figure out how to get into my account yesterday . . . and a call to their tech support didn’t help me because of several reasons: my credit card number has changed; my email address has changed . . . and I could NOT for the life of me remember my password – and the hint just did NOT help.
so – I did what any normal person would do – I stuck my head in the sand and said I could wait until today to try it again.
Worked like a charm – I typed in a password without even thinking about it twice and it was the right one. I now have my domain for another two years. Am I good, or what?
Have been busily knitting and crocheting. This is what I do (instead of writing – which I also need to do – sigh) to come down to the (so called) real world after busy days at work and dealing with the particular group of clients I deal with weekly. Sometimes I just want to curl up in my chair with a pair of needles and a graph and just knit away.
I finished this dish cloth last night for a friend at church. She wears a baby feet pin (her silent witness for the unborn) on her jacket. When I saw the pattern I knew I had to make it for her. She loved it.
I had coffee with a “knitwit” friend Saturday morning. She and her sister-in-law and I all knitted sweaters last winter. We were looking through patterns for felted bags.
My friend’s son is in the U.S. Marines. So, in addition to a couple of other dishcloths made for her, I also stayed up until midnight Friday night to finish this one:
It’s the Marine Corps emblem. She says she is going to keep it and not use it. (that’s the same thing my friend with the baby feet said)
I’ve crocheted as many squares as Shelly wants from me for now. But she still needs squares from other folks. You see, she uses 48 squares per afghan and likes to use one from 48 different people, not all from the same person. She needs some more squares to make up some more afghans. I’ve sent her 108 so far. My personal goal is really 140 (one for each afghan), but I’m going to hold off for now until she uses up all the ones she has.
In the meantime, Shelly is going to send me a couple of “kits” to stitch up and edge. I’ll get those done up as quickly as possible and send the completed afghans back to her.
Go on over and check out the whole story, won’t you? And, then sharpen up those crochet hooks and send her some squares.
Oh, hey . . . while you’re there, check out her latest contest . . . Name that Tune . . . and check out what you can win!!! Pretty nifty little deal. If I win it, I’ll set it up among all the mooses on top of the computer stand. Deadline is October 4th. Go on over there now and put your singing and thinking caps on.
How’s that, Lisa? I hope this will do. I’ll try to come back and fill you all in on the latest and greatest in the moosie’s life more often.
