Blogger sucks

Sometimes I wonder why I stay with it. I am really considering moving to another blog on another site (a friend offered me a site).

The ribbing got done on the 3rd. I took some pictures but mg hasn't uploaded them yet. I think I will take pictures of the first few row. I am very happy with the sweater so far, even if I am constantly changing the graph.

Annie and I are working on and We are still looking for the proper hosting solution (I would locate on my girlfriend's site - but she is supporting Kerry right now). It might end up on blogger, but I really hate this idea.

Unemployed for Dean

I just got back from the meetup and have been asked to start a website/organization. I have no idea what to do about it - other than make sure I can get a domain.

Anybody with good ideas? Anybody who wants to contribute ideas?

Nothing much is happening

And I am very happy about this. I had a medcheck today - my meds are getting changed to what I think is the right mixture for now. I am a Type I bi-polar and have been for over 40 years. I stay in control by being medication compliant. It is just that the last meds I was on dealt just fine with the manic and left me in a constant depression. Also, I hurt.

I hope to finish the ribbing by tonight. Yes, I know more time has been spent on this ribbing than should have been. It would help if I hadn't had to rip in 6 times. I want this to be perfect, and I hate ribbing. This time it looks like I have got perfect.

My hands don't hurt as much as they did a few days ago - so I shouldn't have a huge problem.

Morgen is on her 4th try at the shapely T. The last try moved it into a circular pattern. Unfortunately the yarn looked awful in it. She is now using some old yarn of mine, keeping it circular. She has moved the gauge to 8 stitches an inch (I don't believe it - I told her to check her gauge in a few inches). The body is going to be done in dragon scales. I think she is changing the lace pattern also.

The pattern she is doing this to is one she bought from White Lies Designs - which is done in worsted and has bell sleeves and lace. I think my daughter has inherited my 'can't follow a pattern' gene.

Life goes on

I ripped it. I added 8 inches to the ribbing. Morgen and I started designing a shawl to use the leftover spindrift (which is rye - not oat). I am not knitting a lot today - a combination of too much arthritis to deal with and a whole lot of paperwork to do.

So, things are better.

I have sent lots of very scarce money to Howard Dean. Now it is Your turn

Life sucks

I am going to redo the ribbing (yet again). I just measured it and it is only 44". I think it should be at least 50" (especially if Mary is the person who is eventually going to model and/or own this sweater. It will also improve the design - which really needs to be bigger than 370 stitches.


I am also changing the background color - would anybody like to barter for 10 skeins of spindrift oat? I really need these to be moss instead.

I just finished ripping it. Hated doing it - the ribbing was totally gorgeous.
