Archive for December, 2011

Had a great Christmas with our families.  I am now officially six months pregnant!  I guess crazier things have happened but wow.  Seems nuts sometimes!

Still a lot of work to be done to prepare a nursery and clear out my “craft room”.  I think one more weekend and we’ll be ready for cleaning, painting, etc.  That will be a good feeling.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Holidays with their families!

Why I MUST have an iPad.

I like technology as much as the next girl and have found that with Ravelry and more on line activity, I refer to my actual knitting books way less often for patterns.  However, I don’t necessarily like to print off a bunch of pdf’s just to knit something up and possibly throw the print out away OR print out a bunch that I like, lose them somewhere in my house, then print them again.  Well my friends, although I don’t read much, I just acquired my husband’s old Nook.  This is great because I can put my knitting pdfs on it….not great though because if it’s a chart, there is no color on this Nook so I can’t see those types of marks/symbols.  I also cannot mark where I am on a chart within a page – but I’m excited to use it for the patterns that it will work for which will still be plenty.

Cut to today.  JUST NOW in fact.  I came upon the Yarn Harlot’s blog.  I used to read it all the time but haven’t for a while now.  Well, she’s doing a super cool thing where she’s telling non knitters what to get for knitters for gifts.  BRILLIANT.  She’s really helping a lot of people out here.

That brings me to her post from yesterday that you can find right here.  This post is why I now want an iPad like I can’t even tell you.  I will get one someday just so that I can use it for knitting patterns – as soon as I can justify the cost.
