Well I edited a post and said "publish" and went back to read it but nothing changed. How does that work? Sheesh! I hate murdering the English language and rarely do it. However I really messed up a post and was attempting to correct it. Guess I'll just have to live with the embarrassement!

Detail of scarf I did for a scarf exchange

Cashmere/merino scarf
Just reading back and realizing that I never cast on those mittens that I bought the yarn for in Rhinebeck. YIKES! No matter though because I have cast on a different pair of mittens (thrummed) and hope to have those done by winter. Last winter I dumped all my old ratty mittens in anticipation of the new ones I'd knit. Fortunately it wasn't that cold a winter, as I was mittenless.

Spent part of today looking for the second sock of a pair I am making for DH. These are the ones on the 2 circular needles. The first sock was anyway, the second one I went back to good old DPN's. I'd like to find the second one and finish it since they are very ugly and I don't want them hanging over my head any longer. So I started another ballband to tide me over until I find the damn sock.
Being a slacker for most of my life, I haven't updated my blog in quite some time. I really don't see how these hard core bloggers manage to blog so much, in addition to having what appear to be, very busy lives. I mean every little detail of life is recorded for all to see - who's really that interested in the life of a total stranger anyway? Kind of like reality tv I guess. Must admit, I've never seen one of those programs. Maybe extensive blogging serves a purpose to those who are diary keepers. I was never into that either. Oh, I tried, and periodically would purchase a new "Diary", keep it for a few days, and then watch the entries deteriorate sort of like this:

1/1/78 - Recovering here from a super New Year's Eve bash where the DP flowed freely and the Beluga caviar was exquisite at $150/oz. I was a vision in a red silk Valentino picked up for a song at a resale boutique on Newbury Street (size 4 no less!). Plan to make my list of resolutions today starting with: Will strive for peace in the world, followed by lose 20 lbs.

1/2/78- Busily keeping my Resolutions as planned. Super day as my career has taken an upward turn and I was promoted! I am now the alpha dog in my little world of corporate bliss!

1/8/78- Too busy to write to my "Dear Diary" - please forgive me!

1/9 - 1/31/78 - Nothing to report

3/5/78 - weight up 20 lbs. Other than that, nothing
3/6- see yesterday
4/1/78- This is such a crock.

Sad to report that our retired greyhound racer was euthanized on Dec 23rd. What a great friend she was and we miss here every day. I'm sure we will adopt another greyhound but it's a matter of finding one who is cat-friendly as well as having enough time to spend with her initially getting her used to the house, Ted and Saffy, etc.
All of this blogging is a bit confusing. Upgraded this morning to the new blogger - still don't why we have to do this!

I felted (yes felted) the cashmere pashmina cowl - it is much better now but I won't make one of cashmere again - too soft!

Working on 3 scarves currently for the scarf exchange I am in which is due to the giftee on valentine's day. I think I'll make it. Just a matter of which scarf comes out the best.
