Three Quarters

Despite spending almost all of Saturday engaged in beating the Puzzlecrunch, or not, and most of Sunday engaged in a distressing battle of wits with WordPress…

…I have managed to complete the third bobbin of the merino/mohair. The end is now in sight.

Unfortunately, the CISRA puzzle is also now well in sight, as is a trip to hospital this week. It is unlikely that I shall complete the spinning and plying this week.

Ah, well. Eventually, I suppose.

As for WordPress – I have discovered that Lightbox has potential for causing WP to display badly. It’s a small matter of WP stupidly seeing keywords inside HTML tags instead of just looking in the plain text. I know how to avoid it (by simply not using “gallery” as a name for my lightbox galleries) The main problem now is that I have old posts that use that name, and now I have to go seek them and fix them.

Please, if you find a horribly mangled post, can you let me know? Then I can edit the offending word from the rel tags. Thanks.

Oh. Knitting? Don’t be foolish.


This week: Craft Club tonight, Spinning Wednesday, Hospital Thursday, Poetry Sunday, Puzzling Monday to Saturday. Actually, Sunday appears to be a double booking, as I would prefer to be at the Farmer’s Market.

Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
