Well...I’m around. Been meaning to post for ages and haven’t until now. Who’s still active? Or lurking?
I’m going to post some Doctor Who knitting photos here soon. I can finally make cardigans! Actually have done so for a couple years now. They fit me, so this is a big deal. I’m not a very intuitive knitter at all. Plus I continue to make hats and scarves and so on. Most of my knitting is still Doctor Who-related.
If anyone has interest in seeing the knitting photos, please say so. I won’t be surprised if I get silence, seeing how sadly quiet LJ is these days, but I’ll still post the pictures. You can also see patterns if you’d like and ask questions.
A topic for another day is my “engagement” to a con artist I met on Facebook. He’s trying to get money out of me. Good luck with that! We’re planning an autumn wedding. As soon as I send him $5200 lol.
Well, I'm still here. I've been doing a lot of knitting and have actually made items other than scarves lately. This is major progress for me. I'll have to post photos of some of this year's projects. Maybe this weekend.
The other day, a friend who had recently been in major trouble at work said to me, "I'm so glad I didn't sign that after David when the manager wanted me to."
Thinking I must have heard her wrong, I asked, "Sign the what?"
"The after David," she repeated clearly.
I am totally going to call an affidavit an "after David" from now on.
(BTW, my friend is a native English speaker.)
I really hate winter. I rarely complain about even unpleasantly hot summer weather because it's so much better than this current wave of crap. It's so cold and icy here, three of the four doors on my car froze shut the other day. Just since winter began, I've gotten stuck in snow twice, hydroplaned, skidded numerous times, and stayed home several days when I would have preferred to go out but didn't think the car could make it safely.
Anytime it's summer and I start to whine about the heat, I stop myself with this thought: "It's not winter!" I have never felt that I endanger myself or others by going anywhere in summer, and I do feel that way all too often in winter.
Today is one of those days. It's absolutely disgusting outside, with piles of filthy snow, big patches of nasty ice, horrible roads, and bone-chilling cold. Wish I could hibernate until March or April.
I'm going to watch Netflix and try to knit a hat today. No more shoveling!
