I need daylight, good daylight in which to take pictures. Instead, what I watched out the window was rain the whole grey day.
It matched me hacking out my lungs. Again. This is getting really irritating as once more I have tender ribs. If I am still like this on Friday morning, I might even go in on sick call.
The solution for today was to call a friend and invite her to bring over soup for dinner (I provided the veggies and salad) and sit, knit, and chat.
No pattern – just the picture stolen from the Eau Claire exhibit of Knitting along the Viking Trail
with yarn wound
and the ribbing started 2×2 on 3mm needles
and yes, I am aware that I am knitting back and forth. Think cardigan, not jumper (pullover)
when folded properly you can see that I finished the sleeve increases and am ready to head into the stripes – aka 12 ridges down and 48 to go.
There is a new, not improved interface for iTunes 9. I am not thrilled, for one thing they wiped out all the things I had on hold in the shopping cart. Ok, so I should not be using the shopping cart for a wish list, but isn’t that my choice.
Any who, I need to move on to a new listen. I tried out one of the Deathstalker serials, but prefer books read, not performed (multiple cast with sound effects).
Probably back to Good Omens (Pratchett, Gaiman).
I am tired, it is late. I am not setting an alarm.
Good Omens is always a good comfort read, or listen.
That Viking sweater is lovely.
In the new ITunes, go to the main shopping page, then click My Wish List in the menu (upper right). Mine got saved. The one thing that is pure genius is the home-sharing option. We’ve been dithering for months as to how to transfer all the music files from one computer to the other. A few clicks later, it’s done.
