...and then I wondered why in G-d's green earth I had purchased a colorwork pattern at Stitches East that had THREE colors on multiple rows.
(Isn't the best way to start up again, to just pick up where your brain left off?)
Apparently, I purchase kits far too quickly. I don't inspect all the details, BEFORE I have said, "OH! Pretty! Me! Yes!" and handed over my credit card.
I am learning new skills. The mittens will be beautiful. I doubt I have learned my lesson even yet.
Ten on Tuesday, nonknitting blogs I follow:
1. Hyperbole and a Half. Very very funny.
2. Anne Nahm. Every time I think about unsubscribing, she says something devastatingly to the point. It will make me sit up straighter, and see the world in a different way. Or she makes me laugh til I cry.
3. Blue Ridge blog. Beautiful photography.
4. Chocolate and Zucchini. Nice recipes, different world view. Good place to learn interesting French slang to sling at my in-laws. Now if only I could remember the phrases....
5. Rose Levey Berenbaum. She authors extremely meticulous cookbooks (baking). Great place to pick up hints/tricks/trucs.
6. Tainted Products that are marketed as dietary supplements: This is an RSS feed rather than a blog. This has much more to do with being a consumer rather than a physician. It is an fda.gov site.
7. Formaggio Kitchen. One word: Yum! Not updated often, but fun when they do.
8. Agraphia. One ER doc's blog. I'm surprised he hasn't been dooced. My browser says his site is not to be trusted, so I read it in Google reader without going to the site.
9. Dorie Greenspan. Not my favorite, but worth keeping bookmarked on Google Reader.
10. Smitten Kitchen. New for recipes. Still evaluating whether it is worth keeping.
Odd. No wine blogs. No ski blogs. Few medical blogs. No gardening blogs.
