Thanks to all of you for your kind words on David’s death. It has been hard for us, but our SnB on Tuesday was very healing. We were able to talk of our memories of him and the reasons for this tragedy and I think most of us came away with a new resolve to let others know how much we value them before they slip away from us.
I have progress pictures of the shawl to show you, but they are on the camera, which is at home (which, sadly, is where I am not). So you get a list today.
1. I’ve switched themes again. While the last one served me well for a good long time, I needed a switch. I really like this one and I’ve had it sitting there and ready for months. I decided to put it up so that I could have a really handy spot to put my Knitting Scout Badges. I’ll probably change that tagline pretty frequently too.
2. I also have added a new plugin (how do I love thee, WordPress), so that I can instantly add wikipedia links into any text. So let’s say I wanted to link Timbuktu. All I have to do is type “wiki” followed by (Timbuktu) and voila! wiki(Timbuktu). Spiffy eh? I don’t have to go search wikipedia for it and then manually link. If you want the plugin for YOUR wordpress blog, you can snag it here.
3. I also added a plugin so I can give ratings to stuff with cute little stars. I give this plugin [rating:5]!
Pictures soon, little muffins.
p.s. does anyone know of a place where I can buy The Opinionated Knitter, but pay with paypal? I know I can buy it from a seller on ebay or something, but I’d prefer a shop that comes with a recommendation from one of you. *edited to add* Thanks Siew!! I didn’t know Elann.com took paypal, but now I do and I bought the book as well as some yarn to knit the Cinnabar Pullover.
