Solder on!

(Silly timestamp. Wrong time zone.)

You know you live in Silicon Valley when, instead of knitting after Knit Night, you help solder some electronics to help the husband create himself a toy when a funky angle needs a third hand. It’s the equivalent of his holding the hank of yarn while you wind. (That’s his ham radio in the pocket: he’s a Red Cross volunteer.)

For those looking for a new copy of “Wrapped in Comfort: Knitted Lace Shawls,” Purlescence now has some at the cover price. I haven’t signed them yet, but I certainly could be talked into going back into my favorite yarn shop.

And that red or blue question? Blue.  Totally the blue.

I still vote “Both” but agree blue beats red. (1303 and 1310 are nice, too. 1309 …and 1312…okay blue.) How did you ever decide! That 1305 is pretty. Oh stop me!

we’re in blue mode here too — nothing near and nice and what you’re working with, but blue none the less

(ok, song for the day: “Blue Christmas”)

Blue songs? How about BLUE MOON, BLUE SKIES, BLUES IN THE NIGHT, um …

All this talk of yarn and no one sings “Hey there Solder Boy….”

maybe he’s grateful for that.

Blue skies, nothing but blue skies . . .
