Thank you for the Offer but….
You know, for a Blog ostensibly about crochet, I get a lot of spam for cars. If you look at the Akismet counter : it goes up 10 a day at present.
In the early stages, I was getting ads for pink bits of all sizes on display. Sometimes black for the more
desperate discerning viewer of nekkidness but they seem to have died off. The spam, not the pink bits.
Then I started getting ads for a number of pharmaceuticals that were available on a more recreational basis. But even those have dried up. Now, on a daily basis, I’m getting cars, cars, cars.
Why can’t I be spammed by Lionbrand ?? Or Spotlight?
Yep – I could deal with a daily dose of Moda Vera Yarnporn.
Perving on Merino, it’s only shameful in some communities.
Today is Thursday. There are things going wrong somewhere I’m sure.
See, this morning looks ok:
Quick check – I managed to scare one person into thinking my blog had been cancelled… Riiiiiiight… one person likes that it’s easier to read and there’s one comment that the photos don’t get shown off as well. I liked the darker green but it was very hard to see the text unless I made it yellow or purple… We’ll keep experimenting.
Another Blogarism I’ve noted, both here and on the other site, is there are blogs that do nothing but reference other blogs. And even Kris has been wondering about it – when she sees comments that are someone else pinging back to my blog. (She MUST be psychic!)
Anytime there’s a mention of nipples or breasts on WNTC, we get linked. Nipples happen, people!
Terry Pratchett makes a big thing about counting them (Good Omens and anything involving Angua) and there’s certainly enough bandwidth devoted to them!I just don’t get why there are blogs that blog about blogs.
That said – I’m now blogging about blogs that are blogging about my blogs.
So I’m calling it quits on that.
And since I’m in a Pratchett mode today: is this a case of the Bergholt Stuttley Johnsons’ or not??? BS – Bloody Stupid “Look, the plans were the right way round when I drew them!” Johnson.
What I am going to hold up for everyone to laugh at is this:
It’s the 2cm hose we ordered.
It goes with the 4cm hose we ordered.
Thank you to the large multinational company’s storesman who didn’t comprehend 2cm in the diameter column… and gave us 2cm and 4cm OF hose.
What gets us is that you would actually have to cut these size lengths BY HAND. And that takes some effort.
The good news is:
The Gown has once again made progress and since dimensions are important today:
For all that it grows slowly, this is a simple pattern that has been really easy to alter: the puff stitches and the ribbon rows. When I do it again with the silk, I’m going to try adding Irish crochet style work to the bodice, replacing the large section of double crochets.
So that’s me done for the day.
I have a suspicion that a trip to TB2 is very very close in my future followed by a trip back here.
And… the 2nd package hasnt arrived with M_F yet…… ARGHH!!!!!!!
