Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Christmas Lifts the Curse

I know, how can I be talking about Christmas when it's not even July yet?

Because I dug out my Holiday Sweater from the UFO (UnFinished Objects) pile and put some stitches in sequence that don't need to be ripped out. Not very MANY stitches since I've only done one round in the past two days...but the prognosis is guardedly hopeful.

During the phase of Cursed Knitting I DID learn and master a way to splice yarn which I like very much. I must pay tribute to The Boy Who Knits because he's the one who introduced it to me through my newsgroup: The Russian Join.

Here's the link:

When I had to frog (rip it, rip it...) out the Tychus Saucepan hat failure I eventually turned four or five smaller balls of Cotton Twist into one large one which was the ONLY pleasing part of that project. Thank you Kenny!
