Dearest Sister goes on about how she followed me in a ‘baggy pants kind of way’.
This weekend I asked her to tutor me about podcasts. After her lesson, I had to find my own way, though, not using an iPod, or iTunes. I had a bad experience with iTunes flaking out my Vista registry on my previous, and now dead, computer, so I use a different player on the new nifty neato laptop. The Windows/Mac folk probably have it fixed now, but Windows player works just fine and dandy, and twice burned is learned for me...at least in this case. Dearest Sister has a sweet iPod her Mister gifted her that she uses.
The world of podcasts is now opened up to me. I can hear the voices, finally, of the words I read. I am excited!
Any suggestions for some must-hears?
In other news. I have nearly two dozen eggs knitted, and will be almost out of tail ends of dishclothe cotton yarn when the last two eggs are complete. I am a bit concerned, though. Grandbebe Girl came by today, and walked right by my proud display with nary a glance.
P.S. Kathleen? They are filled with fiber loft, not m&m's!
Also, a photo of the bow-tie neck knot thingie (by Katherine Burgess) I completed a bit ago. Not a bit deal, except for the fact that I chose to knit it out of yesterday's mentioned handspun. As I was knitting, I was seeing how it would look great as the edging for the MLCB...possibly.
See. That's the thing with me. I see dyed roving, and have absolutely no idea what sort of yarn it will turn out to look like, or how yarn will look knitted up. It's just so hit and miss. I swear. If I buy some yarn, with a pattern in mind, and it comes together, it's a miracle.
