Blogging blues

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Yup. I’ve been busy. The charts for the latest lace, the clover one, whose working title is currently In the Summer Shade, have been taking tons of time. Mostly because I keep forgetting stuff—like, it’s sort of important to somehow indicate that the outer two edge stitches are supposed to be garter stitch. Yeah.
But […]

I am home

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

The good news is that I’m home. I’m not home for three days—or worse, ten minutes. I’m home until late February. It’s so nice to be here again.
The bad news is that I am still accessing the Internet through Dave’s computer. My own probably works just fine, but the UPS that it plugs into […]

Distinctly different than though simultaneously similar to housekeeping, blogkeeping chores include sidebar modifications (check), new back-end spam blocking software search and installation (check).
Some time in the wee hours this morning I did yet another search for spam blocking software to work in conjunction with Akismet. I found a product called WP-SpamFree, and installed it. […]

Site move, knitting, turkey

Site move
You may have noticed the complete absence of my blog and/or pattern shop over the last few days. It’s because we moved to a new server, and as the way of such things, our new location takes a bit to trickle through the Internet at large. My other pages are moving today, well, the […]

Finally home

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Yup. We were out of town last week. In Las Vegas. At our timeshare. The Internet hookup this time was… unreliable. Frustrating. Practically useless. Dave had planned on getting work done while we were gone, as he’d been able to in the past, but it didn’t work out this time. More frustration. We did end […]

I’m here!

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

I’m here. Honest I am. But here is a relative thing… The here where I currently am is not exactly experiencing reliable Internet connection time. We were down almost all day yesterday, and up and down a lot the day before that, so I hesitate to type much, in fear of losing it. I’ll post […]

More late night tinkering

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Yup. Again. Yes, I removed the green background from both sidebars. There’s a light green line now between the left-most sidebar and the posts. I might make it a little darker. I tried having it the same color as the green text, but that was too much. Much too much.
I found new gallery software, […]

There are plenty of other things I should be doing, but my brain doesn’t seem to be functioning this morning. Probably has something to do with the split-shifts I’ve been pulling on the sleeping thing the last couple of days. You know, where you go to bed, fall asleep, then wake up a few hours […]

A blast from the past

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

I can’t believe how crazy things have been around here. A bunch of printed patterns were delivered while we were away. They’re all sorted now, stuffed into their sleeves, and put into binders to keep them safe. The update email went out to the shops that carry my patterns. We have a new customer management […]

A couple things

Saturday, July 12, 2008

I don’t have any progress pictures for you, as it’s the middle of the night, and much, much too dark for photo taking. Rest assured that good progress is being made on the shawl for Karen. I had a bit of a glitch yesterday, forgot to put two beads on it. I ended up tinking […]
