Comment on Don’t tell me that I’m doing it wrong! by Kristy

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 09:05:53 +0000

P.S. I just saw your blog subtitle and almost fell out of my chair laughing because three members of my family have or still do work for the USPS and it is one of our favorite things to complain about, despite depending on paychecks from it! The more you know, the madder you get with them, it seems.

I'm so sorry you had to experience that kind of negativity from fellow weavers! Or from anyone, for that matter. That's one of the reasons I've come to hesitate to bring certain projects to my knitting guild events. I had a friend actually tell me that she stopped knitting in front of fellow guild members for a while because someone told her she knit "weird". What?! I'm so glad you kept going. The project on my loom is only my second attempt at weaving and I can clearly see the unintentional warp floats and poor selvedges, but I'm so glad no one else can see them. And I'm forging on ahead and I hope to warp on my first scarf soon! Keep going! I love those colors, too!

I have the same exact lunch bag....I love it! I might be a little too old to be carrying animal lunch bags to work but that doesn't stop me. I flaunt it every chance I get :)

I downloaded Goodreads to start with, and accidentally got the iPhone version instead of the iPad! Oops!

Thank you for the info! $16 seems crazy to me as well, but it sounds like it might be worth it!

Insightful comments. You might want to update your post to reflect v1.5 which supports written instructions.

Comment on Farewell, Steve Jobs by Kelly Black

My husband has really been struck by Steve Jobs' passing, too. I feel the sadness of losing such an innovative young man, but I've never looked at him as a mentor the way my husband has. I appreciate your post and the innovation Steve Jobs provided while he was with us. If only he would've opted for surgery in the beginning of his illness.... but that kind of thinking gets me nowhere.
