Annoyance Pay

I don't know if you use Internet Explorer. And if you do, if any of you have the security options in place. If you do you might have noticed the following message. . .

To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options
**which translates "IE has blocked this page. Because there are so many layers of security options you will spend massive amounts of time trying to figure out why you can't read the most innocent of knitting and fiber blogs but you will still get annoying mortgage pop ups no matter what you do.

I think what should happen is this. . .

To help protect your sanity, Internet Explorer has replaced itself with a much easier and safer to use website browser. Click here for a rebate check.

I splomish I really ddidn't have an;ythign to drink

My blog recently reads as if I've been drinking and blogging . . . another words (pun intended) bad spelling and sloppy keyboarding.

I will proofread and edit, or perchance revel in the fantastically bad example I've created. As this man did . . . Worst Bowling Shot in the History of Bowling

All action and no color

I'm sure anyone reading this blog has noticed a huge lack of color AKA photos. It's simple. . . I have a camera. I know how to use it. I can't get it away from the rest of my family. I put it on my desk to take pics and within minutes it's gone out the door.

My camera gets way more action than any person I've ever met.

Plastic vs metal vs wood

I recently bought some new needles the imatation balene kind. I love the tips on these babies. Sharp with a cool indent right at the tip. They are light weight and flexible. I also have bamboo and some birch ones from Brittany. I have a huge collection of needles from family that are mostly metal. In the mix are some plastic ones but they are so brittle that after the first one broke I knew they rest would follow. I discoved this past winter that using any of the metal needles would make my hands ache. I tried the addie turbos circs both large and small. I don't know. . . . I like the needles but I found the cables a bit springy and difficult to use for two socks on two needles. I spent about $50 on two pairs of size 2 circs and won't ever use them again. An expensive lesson especially since after about the 12th row I moved to different needles. Joanns is having a huge sale with 30% off all knitting items so I need to decide to move over and get bamboo or try some more of the balene? ??? ? Perhaps ebay may provide some sets and I have both. . . . .
