First of all, to get the grumps out of the way, I have no picture to post today because I am at 100% of my upload capacity in my free flickr account for the month! Wha!?!?! It’s like the kid with free drugs on the playground — he gets you hooked for free until you want MORE and then you have to PAY for it….
Any advice? Should I pay $25 for “unlimited” flickr privileges or shop around or move my blog elsewhere that has more photo storage?
OK — it’s out of my system … for the moment. On to my DREAM!
I was at the Purl warehouse picking up my Tilli Tomas when I spotted a copy of Last-Minute Knitted Gifts and it flashed on me — the night before I dreamed of being trapped in a closet full of Hourglass sweaters in various solid colors with contrasting facings, just like the one I made! My view was looking up at the closet rod, about eye level of a 5 year-old, marveling at all this handknitting and wondering if any of it had been machine knit, but of course it couldn’t have because the pattern is knit in the round. Weird….. I told Jennifer and she just laughed, commenting that she was glad I didn’t consider it a nightmare. Time to consider altering my medication dosage…. 😉
Preview of coming attractions: I had to get a smog check for one of our cars that went more quickly (yay!) than expected and I was in the neighborhood of Suzoo’s so … naturally I HAD to stop by. Whenever I can post a picture (grrrr), I’ll show you my impulse purchase. Suffice it to say for now that it involves alpaca (it’s a for a gift, not me, Amanda!), many wonderful colors and a new set of needles.
