As far as I know, I haven't knit a single stitch since my last post. My brother is doing some interesting knitting, though. With very little instruction and his own ingenuity he has figured out interasia and put it to amazing use. I keep telling him to bring it over so I can photo it in the daylight, but we always manage to get together when it's getting dark. It's turning out really cool, though. He's using cotton that has perfect sheen and in colors you wouldn't expect in a baby blanket, and he's putting the Queen's Reich symbol big and bold in the middle of it. He's making it for a friend who just had a baby. It may just turn out to be the coolest baby blanket ever =) I'm proud of him. I may have taught him to knit, but he's taken off in directions I haven't gone, so it's fun to see what he can do.
Work is going decently well. Things are picking up after the initial Summer slowdown. Someone called me Magic Fingers and marvelous yesterday - lol
I do have pictures in my camera, but I'm too caffiene deprived at the moment to hook it up. We got the satellite guy here now hooking us up with TV. I've held out for... nearly 14 years, refusing to get cable or satellite TV since regular TV eats up too much time already. Our digital receiver though is just awful. The picture is fine, but the guide it uses stinks, most of the channels say "No Information Available" and it's just a pain in the butt. Anytime you want to look at the channel list, it stops receiving the channel it's on and flips to the guide only. I guess it can only think about one thing at a time. Also, we had two DVR's that died within a couple weeks of each other and a major lightning strike. So that was sad, too. We'll be getting a new DVR with the TV deal.
Oh yeah, as for Claudia, she was number 1 again and her ride went very well. yaay
I think I need coffee - talk to y'all later =) sooner rather than later I hope

Probably everyone that reads this blog also reads Claudia's Blog but just in case a few extra people wander over there b/c of this post... I figured I'd mention her and her MS Ride Fundraiser. She's only got a few days left before she rides and she's only got 38% of her goal and it would be so awesome if she could retain her #1 status of last year.
You see last year, knitters (and regular people) all over donated to her ride to the extent that she had the highest total of anyone there. That's cool
Of course there are also tons and tons of awesome prizes. All a person has to do to get put into the drawing is donate $10. There are so many prizes that the odds of winning one is very high, and it's super nice (mostly knitterly) stuff. But doesn't everyone know at least one person they like that knits? Well, hopefully if you are reading this blog, that's at least a little true. ;0)
PS - The blog that I currently keep up with most is Clandestine and Candour
