Explanations Be Known

Posted on 7, February 2007 by


    Me again to explain my line of thinking from the last post. So if there was confusion on the amount of reading I needed to catch up, my bad. Hope this crazy bit of logic clears up the mud.

  • To start off, I use two hard-drives for my work laptop so that I will not put non-work related items (like pictures, patterns, etc) on the work drive. My DH Rich was kind enough to set up the “play” hard-drive for me. But if I blog during lunch, I sometimes forget and Firefox keeps your pages intact and can accidentally save them on me after the original is uploaded.
  • I did forget that there are a couple of exceptions to the peeves. One touches the contests that require a comment to a particular post, especially for something that I would adore (Kristen’s stitchmarkers, Carole’s STR).
  • Another item to explain is my mentioning of “regional reading” which is a habit I picked up from work. Since I test my web application worldwide, the countries are divided according to regions. Two examples are: NAM (North America) and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa). For my Bloglines list, I decided to split my “gotta read” blogs into regions and topics (South, Midwest, EMEA, Canada, KAL, Bunnies, Yarn Vendors, Sports, etc). When I read a blog knowing where the writer is located in my list, I feel more in touch with their environment and way of thinking.
    In writing my last post, I also forgot to add that I will be selling a few items in the Destash for Cash Blog. Just remember, they were seen here first. 😉

Finally that my SP9 Spoilee has received her package, I can breathe and post about the project. I present to you a Clapotis knitted with 7 hanks of Reynolds’ Rapture in pink #244. The 350 grams of yarn were a great project to knit and I am glad she loves it!

Edited to add: I have no idea how it was added in my Bloglines list of Bunny Blogs, but the feed for “Bunny Knits” at bunnyknits.blogspotDOTcom is actually Google’s Blog. How WEIRD is THAT??
