Blog-goggles, Knitting Needles, Some Progress (Finally!!) on a Sweater and a Half-Finished Sock

1001 Other Uses for Knitting Needles:

Use #106: A number 15 bamboo needle makes an excellent tool for helping the vertically challenged get that summer blanket down from the top shelf.

My darling sister is coming to town (yay!!) so I vacuumed up the mounds of cat hair and put fresh sheets on the guest room bed. (Don't tell the kitties it's a guest room--they think they have their own private bath. Ok fine, they DO have their own private bath--don't tell my guests, they think the nice fluffy towels are for them).

So fellow knitting bloggers--do you find yourself going through the day looking at the world though Blog-goggles, e.g., "Damn, I wish I had my camera! I could use that photo for my blog?" or "Hmmm...I wonder if that growing pile of dryer lint will make a good 'L is for' photo?" Since my photoblogalism world right now covers a good three foot radius of my computer, I make do with what I have (with the occasional trip outside for good behavior).

I've finally made some progress on one of my sweater projects- the Cabaret Raglan and my first time reading a chart so there was a lot of tinking & ripping. Since it's getting warm around here, I can't see making much progress on the Sunrise Circle Jacket for the next few months.

I love that sweater color and I love "blog-goggles"! Is that your own word concoction?

And yes, I'm always wishing I had my camera on me and I compose entries while I'm waiting at stoplights, etc. Maybe I need help!

Cary looks so cute! LOL!

it's nice that you let your dear sister stay in MY room...

Cary is resting up for that big birthday bash he's planning for himself. It's going to be SO Paris Hilton...that's hot!

I love your cat pictures.

Note - knitting needles are NOT good for scratching your ear canal.

Is it wrong that I keep my camera in my purse for bloggable moments?

Knitting needles can help you put together Ikea widget furniture! Well, mainly they can help you when you made a mistake because you did not read the directions carefully. Those round things that you stick into the bigger holes and then trun to hook onto a widget screw can be a b*tch to get out!

Your sweater front looks fab!

My blog-goggles make me want a better cell phone-don't those famous Blackberries have wi-fi capabilities? Heaven help us (and my cell phone budget) if I ever get one.

Poor Cary!

I have brilliant ideas for blog posting - mainly when I'm nowhere near a computer.

I hear you on the camera! I went for a walk the other day and in one of the old horse stables is now a family of goats and the kids were fighting. Cutely. I didn't even have my keys much less a camera.

The Cabaret Raglan is darling.

Hehe, I love the "other" uses for knitting needles... The sweater is looking good, as well as the sock! :)

That's such a great sweater! Yeah, I think about my blog, but I don't post as often as I should...eep.

I love your blankets, too. How do you keep them so clean with little kitty marauders about the place?

Just what 'til Blog-goggles turns into pod-goggles - because you know that old saying - anyone can whistle. Thanks for your comments about our baby podcast! Glad you enjoyed!

The sweater looks great!
