I had two readers yesterday–two! Woot! And, uh oh, one of them clicked on the link to my main website. Ouch. That sucker hasn’t been updated in forever! I’m terribly sorry, mystery reader! I’ll go post a picture or something right away!
I haven’t done anything yarn-y this week, I’m afraid. Ever since finishing the shell shawl (picture still to come), I haven’t been inspired to start anything new. Well, that’s not entirely true–there’s one project I’ve been thinking of, as a present for a friend, but first I have to obtain some Cascade 220 in the desired colors. I’ve been carrying around a couple of balls of nubbly red yarn and some needles, in case I feel like starting a scarf for the Red Scarf Project, but after three days, the needles are still bare and the yarn is still balled. Also, my evenings have been spent visiting my friends’ daughter at the hospital, where I stand by her bed and sing to her while she sleeps, so when I get home, my back and neck are cranky from the odd standing position, and my head just doesn’t want to think. Just too tired, I guess. So, no knitting or crochet news this week.
Instead, I’ve been busy at work, integrating two exhibitions at once (not the first time). When I take a break, I play with Twitter, or I find new widgets to futz with. (Didja see the new iTunes widget in the sidebar? Scroll down, it’s neat!) I’ve signed up with Scrabbulous, but have yet to actually play a game–everyone there seems way more advanced than I, it’s very intimidating! And sometimes, I search the internets far and wide for the cheapest Brown Sheep Burley Spun in variegated colors (one hank is the perfect size for a bubble bag!).
Last night, I helped my friend Allyson Beatrice assemble gift bags. She will be doing a reading from her first book, Will the Vampire People Please Leave the Lobby?, and a Q&A this weekend (Saturday, 9/1, 4pm) at Vroman’s in Pasadena. (You should come! There will be the aforementioned goody bags, and cake! And, she’s way funnier than me, so it’ll be entertaining, too!)
That has been my week so far. Not exciting, I know (although the near-death of my not-backed-up external harddrive was certainly a pulse-raiser!), but I hate to see this blog go without frequent updates. Perhaps for my next post, I’ll describe my awesome new business cards! 😀
