Popping in

No photos today. Camera is hiding. I suspect gremlins.

However, I like what Ellen said a few posts back. I think I shall call this sweater 'Dimples'. Speaking of the sweater, I am about halfway through the second sleeve (should only be a day or two of knitting when I have time).

The reason that is taking so long is school. It IS March after all. My brain is pretty much gone. Ask anyone, I have not been myself. But I am getting itchy knitting fingers, so I think I might treat myself to a good few hours of knitting tomorrow, provided I get this assignment in.

To help calm myself down, I bought a copy of 'Mantras for Madmen' by Harry Manx. Mr. Manx is an incredibly talented musician who combines the American blues with some enchanting Indian influences (he resided there for 12 years). He now lives on Saltspring Island (small, just up-island from me!) Anyway, this album is less bluesy than some of his other work, and I was so feeling like some blues today, but it is brilliant work regardless. It also bears some of the most appealing album artwork I have seen in a long time. Harry Manx. Check him out. If you like blues/folk and a little experimentation, you will not be disappointed.

This Boy, logging off. (I'll post a photo update of Dimples as soon as I find the camera)


  1. See what happens when you comment on caffeine? You get called up to the board. But I like the Dimples anyway. I especially like sweaters where they work the increases/decreases into the pattern instead of hiding them. I'd like to learn how to do that for myself. Knit on!

  2. School eats brains. 'Specially in March because that=mid-terms. But this is why knitting is good, because while we may not be doing homework we are doing something productive, right?

    That's what I tell myself, anyway.
