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.

There's Been Knitting, Too

I finished those booties.

Also made what turned out to be a blanket for Eldest Duckling's "Samantha" doll--it was supposed to be a washrag but turned out way too big and floppy (which is a problem the Loudly Laugh-In Dishcloth has too.) Even on things where it shouldn't, gauge matters.

So I found some smaller needles (US #1) and started cranking out cotton. These are for Lidia; MIL is leaving for Brasil on the 5th. Astute viewers will also notice that ball of pink Speed-Cro-Sheen in the basket--that's for the other co-worker's girlbaby booties. The hemp yarn (that smudge of purple on the left) didn't have enough body to make for a good baby bootie. It also wasn't exciting enough to do a before-and-after of the swatch washing--softened a bit but didn't change enough to be photo-worthy.
