Grumble, grumble. I switched to Blogger's beta version yesterday and was displeased to find that things like my stat counter code were not copied over automatically.

I guess I will gradually reassemble my sidebar. Or, just redo everything.

Book Bit
I quite enjoyed this brief review of various transgender memoir book covers. I often forget about the existence of Bookslut, so when I rediscover it, I'm always amused.

Sidenote...wow, do I ever hate Blogger's WYSIWYG composer. Back to HTML for me!

Knitting Bit
I am so bored with the scarf and bag that I'm knitting. Knit, knit, knit...snoozers!

After this mess, I'm totally going to try my needles at entrelac using this tutorial and this one.

Oh yeah, and at some point, I still have to do a stinkin' Shibori scarf. Porkchop found a nice substitution for glass marbles...river rocks! No two are alike!

All for now. Have a nice Tuesday afternoon!

I haven't switched to Blogger's Beta yet. I take it I'll need to copy & backup all my template code before I do the upgrade?

Entrelac is another one of those things I haven't tried yet. But I can completely relate to being bored with the current knitting project. That's why I have so many going at once!

Entrelac is very easy once you get going. I took a class (it met twice) which I think was the only way I could learn it--when it comes to knitting I am a visual learner. And I got a great bag from it. I haven't tried it since because I haven't found any patterns that I really like that use the technique.
My holiday projects are coming along and I am on the last stage of the clapitos! My plan is a shibori scarf in the new year. Let me know how the river rocks work out. I just got some as part of a centerpiece so I have plenty around.
Hope you had a good holiday!
