I wish more of my friends would have baby girls. There's a rash of boys right now and my stash is full of "girl" colours. Sigh. And even my pattern stash has many more girl patterns than boy ones.
So, I got these three skeins of Lion Brand Cotton (about 220 yards each) as a CLBFX package from Joanne. Since it was in natural colour, any dishcloths I work up will not be too dashing, obviously. So I hit upon the brilliant idea of making myself that top I've been promising myself for ages … Continue reading A tale of two tops
So here it is, my first plastic canvas FO. An eyeglass case for my aunt. The mountains of itchy acrylic I have came in very useful without any depletion. No, don't rub your eyes. The pictures are blurry. I lined it with ordinary 2 x 2 blouse piece cloth and fabric glue. Still too lazy … Continue reading Plastic canvas kitsch
The buzz in knitting circles in recent weeks has been about the new interchangeable needles introduced by Knitpicks. While I was trolling the Web for info on which brand to choose, all the fora (forums) were agog with these needles, metal rather than the resin of the Denise set that I finally decided to ask … Continue reading Yay India!

Now I must get off my seat and finish that I-cord that was poking through my finger. This was from a FGM, Kimberly, in Massachusetts. Next, Karla sent me a … Continue reading RAOK
Yep, sense appears to have seen the light. (Pardon my mixed metaphors, I'm excited). I am once again able to access blogspot. Woohoo.
I went booksaling (new word!) today and turned the place upside down looking for crafty books. And I was well rewarded with this (Rs 75): Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmermann. Wasn't that a lucky find?! I hope to be putting some of the techniques into use in a few weeks' time. This is the … Continue reading Treasure found
This is the first time I'm living with censorship (I was too young to appreciate it properly the earlier time) and I'm not liking it much. Technologically challenged people in the government have decided that all of the blogs at blogspot.com and typepad.com are to be blocked. I cannot also access any geocities.com site. Either … Continue reading Censorship
Here's a post that explains why I can't read my blogs: http://mutiny.wordpress.com/2006/07/17/blog-blackout/ I'm undecided on how to react.
I am not able to read some of my regular blogs, including Nonaknits, The Crochet Dude, Karla, Ruth...I see their updated posts in Bloglines, but when I click on them for the full version or to comment, nothing! I get error messages. Is this happening to anyone else? Surely something can't be wrong with Blogspot, … Continue reading Problem reading blogs
