Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

How Cool is THIS????

Ok, so now that I have totally gotten up to date with the techno world thanks to my DH who graced me with a iPod for my birthday (YEAH!) I can't stop myself. I have been very busy downloading music like MAD! So, when I was over visiting Alison I was reading about her excitement at getting her iPod and all the cool Podcasts that she is listening too. Well, I am now a subscriber to Cast on, KnitCast, Knitting Newscast and finally Secret Knitting. Of course, I haven't caught up with listening to all of these but I am doing my best to get caught up with them. I am not sure which one is my fave yet but it certainly is cool to catch up on what everyone has been talking about. My iPod make turning 40 not quite so dreary, y'know? I feel hip, cool, phat, like the bomb or whatever the newest "it" term may be (I am not quite up on my teenage venacular). I love, love, love, love, love my iPod. Thanks so much honey! You are the best!

Well, while listening to Cast on, I was sent to and found this random stripe generator. What's cool is that you pick the colors that you want, how wide you want the various stripes to be and then it will randomly generate a striping pattern. Don't like the pattern, refresh the page and you get a new pattern. How absolutely COOL is that?????? I must now go through my stash for solid colors and generate some striping patterns. Tee hee!!!!! So, let me know what you all think and what you are going to use the patterning for, ok?

Oh, and BTW, I think this shrug is really, really cool!

Awesome! I got an iPod for my birthday last year and I Love love LOVE it! The knit podcasts are great. We downloaded a bunch of them and listened to them on our road trip down to Alabama. It made driving go by so much quicker!

That shrug is very very cute!
