Knitting |Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 8:54 AM

But I am calling all Portland/Vancouver/etc. metro area knit bloggers! Several of us are starting a Yahoo Group called PDX Knit Bloggers. Come on over and join up! We’re hoping to organize a little get together — or maybe several. It will be fun!


The new is up. As always, the patterns are lovely. As always, there are several I want to start right now. But I’m restraining myself. So far. Check out Chapeau Marnier by local Portland designer Marnie MacLean.

Woodland Woolworks has lace-weight on sale through Friday, 06/15. C’mon… you know you wanted to start some lace! You know you did. Also, all of their stash-room closeouts are an extra 10% off through 08/15. I may have to make a little trip over the mountain and look in person! But, if you are not within striking distance, I can tell you from experience that the folks there are wonderful and their customer service is superb!

Finally, I leave you with the following little thingy. Similar thingys have been floating around the interwebs for years, but this one tickled my fancy.

You know you are living in 2007 when…

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven’t played Solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 4.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 (or 50) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12 You’re reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a #9 on this list.

And now you’re laughing at yourself! 😆 Go knit something!

    • A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.
