Dot point weekend

17 Jul 2007

My internet's slowed to dialup speed thanks to he who shall not be named deciding he had an immediate need to download ubuntu even though it's been left it on my desktop unused for ten days (and counting). Evil telecommunications previously monopolist now oligopolist has decided enough is enough and now I have SLOW internet.

So, no pics, just dot points.

* Went to Canberra. Could move there tomorrow.
* Met Bells - most pleasant experience.
* Saw Knit1Blog1 exhibition. White walls, glass boxes, beautifully sparsely placed knits. A wonderful celebration of Canberra knitters, with some projector screened interactive pc's to look at the blogs.
* Went to the Bus Depot Markets on Sunday - it was like the craft fair all over again. But instead of yuk coffee they had mulled wine and spiced cider - yummm.
* In the spirit of the Tour De France knitalong - I bought a beautiful pink and green toile (from France) baguette basket, pics will arivee when camera meets some new batteries and I'm feeling patient with the dialup speed thing.
* I also bought a strip of gorgeous blue and butter yellow toile fabric for some drawstring bags or perhaps a bolster cushion.

* The pattern for the palawan shawl came! I'm waiting on the yarn and cannot wait to get this started! If the yarn doesn't come today I'm going to start one of my own anyway.
* The MS3 clue 3 is finished. It doesn't look so much like a face now that the upper patterns have kind of overshadowed it.
* All other projects have been shelved due to the frustration of having nothing finished in weeks.

* Do you think that having so many people on Ravelry is going to enhance the community or detract from the really talented contributors and truly beautiful items on the site?

* Do you think that the people who do the most whoring on ravelry will ruin it for the quiet achievers?

* Do you think that Ravelry embodies the best of knitters' communism - equal for everyone - and therefore the uninspiring and ordinary should be seen cheek by jowl with the amazing and inspirational work?

*Isn't one man's meat another man's poison, so what I find inspiring you might find ordinary?
