Well, obviously I am not a very good blogger. My update rate is about every month or two. Meh.
By means of update, I have knitted a few things since I last posted:
Some booties with leftover yarn (Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Mediumweight in Green Eyed Monster) from my Baby Surprise Jacket.
Bird in Hand Mittens (unblocked), Wool of the Andes for Elizabeth:
Scrunchable Scarf for me in Malabrigo Worsted in Polar Morn
There have been a few tense moments in the family recently, mostly because of an early arrival:
That is my new nephew, Mason. His mother went into labor seven weeks early. The nice people at the hospital were able to hold off delivery for two weeks while his lungs developed and he gained some weight. He is a tiny little fellow and has been in the NICU for about a week and a half now. He is steadily improving.
Okay, so part of the reason I am posting, besides showing off my new nephew, is to get some feedback. I am considering buying an e-reader. My book collection has reached the point that for every book I bring in, I have to take one out. And I don't like doing that. I like to re-read my books. I have looked at some reviews, and it looks like Amazon's Kindle and Barnes and Noble's Nook are the two best readers out there. Kindle's software runs smoother than Nook, which can be a bit sluggish. Nook, however, supports ePub files (Google has several thousand classics available in ePub format).
Also, apologies for all of the security stuff with the comments. I had to adjust the settings because I kept getting viagra spam.
