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.

The dimestore was OUT of that cotton yesterday so I continued with some faith but more grave doubt.

I didn't have enough yarn.

This is where it stopped; I used Every Bit just for the photo op.

So I frogged** it back out. I REALLY like that particular ombre and plan on making some snazzy washcloths out of it, perhaps with a nice cream for counterpoint. Probably for gifting; I'm thinking of a recipient already.

Plan B

** Non-Knitter Translation:

To "frog" is to undo a whole bunch of knitting by taking the piece off the needles because "rip it, rip it" is the sound a frog makes. The related term "tinking" means doing the same thing slowly stitch by stitch usually while keeping the piece on the's "knit" spelled backwards.
