Seen these?

Okay, there are pictures of a very lovely sock here. And those socks are the ones featured at the Tsock Tsarina website here. What's with the long hyperlink? I haven't many knitting related things to say. I am working on the second sock of the Ash Gray Braid and Garter Bead sock; the shawl now has.... Well, let me work the arithmetic, so there's more here than just a tiny entry.

Total: 2+6+10+14+18+22=72 snowdrops.

So, I have knitted 72 snowdrops. I've been reading a lot lately, and not knitting too much. I just hit random keys that brought up Outlook Express. Huhh?? As I said in a comment, I have been calling it Foxfire when it is actually Firefox. Odd.

Comments on Foxfire and other stuff

Well, I had used IE exclusively up until I got Foxfire. I have been using Foxfire for several days, now. I have a couple notes:

1) If you are normally an IE user, note that typing text that is not a URL in the address bar will bring up the first page in the search results, not the search results themselves.

2) I personally think that both the search menu and the tabbing function are useful.

3) For some reason or another, Foxfire would not let me scroll horizontally when I was trying to view the Lion Brand Newsletter in Yahoo! Mail, which was somewhat anoying.

Other stuff:

As I said, I am making these from this season's Knitty and in KnitPicks Telemark. I have had one problem so far: I left A behind while knitting B and so caught A in the other sock.

I am also working on a crochet adaption of EZ's mitered mittens from Knitter's Almanac. By the way, "Zimmermann" is spelled with two n's at the end.

As well as various other stuff...

I cannot believe that I did not notice until yesterday that the Symphony is a double treadle wheel.
