I’m trying out the blog feature included with Windows 7 on my new laptop. I bought myself a Dell in early December, and I’m still getting used to its many weird and different features from Windows XP. I don’t even have to log into Blogger to update my blog, so perhaps that means I’ll update a little more frequently.
My newest post-Christmas knitting project is a little baby sweater from vintage baby knits. It is the only knitting pattern I’ve ever used where I have the same yarn the pattern recommends. I didn’t even mean to do it, I just picked something up at Shall We Knit because it was on sale in the summer, and it turned out to be the same stuff in the book. Neato. I worked on it at Fuzzyhead’s extended family Christmas last night, and had to fight off allegations of baby-having. Terrible. No babies please. They can start hassling the 30-something cousin and leave me alone.
I leave you with this dear readers: A little bit of Christmas dog, featuring Sassy and Oscar.
