Santa came early

Posted by jackie blue on December 1st, 2006

And brought me the best knitting chair. Now, just bring on the cold weather so I could nest and knit in my cozy home. It’s like 70 degrees today!

I Caved

Posted by jackie blue on May 24th, 2006

I wasn’t supposed to buy any yarn. Any yarn that didn’t come from a gift certificate that is. And I wasn’t supposed to even think about new projects, because 2006 is the year of finishing, But oh, then this came along. And it’s so Jackie. So Jackie that I had to buy yarn immediately. I ordered this in this color:


because I so enjoyed it when I made that purple baby blanket, and because this is a good color for a lot of my summer wear. Sigh, no willpower. But at least no willpower cost less than $30 for both yarn AND pattern.
Alice has a second sleeve in the works and I expect to get more done tonight during the LOST finale when there is 2 hours of nothing happening and nothing answered.
In other news, my new toy arrived last night and I was up till 3 a.m. putting in contacts (and accidentally deleting many of them) from my old phone. Ah fun. I’m getting no work today - I can’t stop playing with it. And of course it has a camera:


Ty seems to be enjoying it. Oh wait, maybe it’s the Flossy making him so happy.Added later: I should probably point out that I know that yarn is a different gauge. I’m pretty good at adapting for size, so I’m not worried.

New Toy

Posted by jackie blue on May 19th, 2006

So since people were interested in my cell phone choice I figured I’d post an update. I decided against the SLVR after all. Pretty as it was, it was still a Motorola, and my current phone (V600) drives me insane with it’s badly organized address book. When I found that they hadn’t improved that function for the L7, I decided it was time to make a brand switch.


After much research, I decided on the Nokia 6682. Reviews have been pretty solid. This baby has been ordered and hopefully will arrive next week. It may not be as sleek and stylish as a RAZR or SLVR, but hey, a phone you can watch TV on can’t be bad.
