Today I did this:

find your inner PIE @ stvlive.com

But the funny thing is, I hate pie.

Last night I finished Immortal. I'm wearing it now. It fits a lot better than AS Cromarty, which I wore yesterday. Maybe I'll take a picture later.

Now I'm trying to decide what to do about Admonition, which is the sweater I started two weeks ago out of the purple Dale Sisik I bought on January 9th. The ribs look too close together on the body, I think.

Maybe I'll finish it the way it is. Maybe I'll post a picture later. I took one last night, but instead of posting it, I watched "The Daily Show" and went to bed. Maybe I'll take what I've done (first side, up to the arm holes) and start again with another ball of yarn, and once they're the same size, then I'll decide.

Last night it took me less than five minutes to get the pictures off my camera. Apparently the "canon website" trick works. If I launch the Canon website, the camera connects immediately. I was chatting with an IT guy here at work this morning (he was installing MS Project for me) and he suggested the Canon website might trigger an automatic poll for Canon products. Interesting theory. All I can say is, it works and I'm not going to complain about that.

Half an hour later:

I had meant to say something about what Marilyn said. I posted a "I won't be suing anyone for putting socks on their sleeves" post to www.knittingcurmudgeon.com, and she said it was mighty brave of me to post over there (they didn't like the sock scarf I guess). She said I should try to get into IK.

She's right, of course. I much prefer IK as a magazine. I always have, though I usually buy both. Though lately I haven't been able to find Knitter's in stores here. Weird, I wonder if it's just me, the planets conspiring to keep me from buying that mag any more. Perhaps I should ask on Knitting Canadians, because I saw the Winter issue in the Border's in Danvers, MA at Christmas.

IK sent me the nicest rejection letter I've ever gotten, also. they kept my black tank for several months, and Pam said she was considering putting it in this issue, and that issue, but there wasnt' space, and she thought rather than keeping it forever she should send it back. Much nicer, and more personal, than the Knitter's two-sentence form rejections, of which I have a larger collection.
