Oh hey, it's Wednesday!

Bookish , Jumping on the bandwagon , Kittens are cute. , Knitting , Olympic Knitting 2006 , Randomness

I finally went to work today, after being out sick, so it felt like Monday, so I'm totally confused. Anyway, it's Wednesday, so that means randomness!

1. FIRST of all, do you like the new layout? It's March 1 (Happy March!) so I decided something bright and springlike was in order. It's a very slightly tweaked version of a template that the lovely and generous Becky made for us Pretty Posies members. Let me know if anything seems to be working incorrectly.

2. Based on the comments I got yesterday and what I've seen at other blogs, I think Post-Olympic Startitis should be declared an official disease. I've managed to stick to my ten, though. Aren't you proud of me? (Birch was added to the ten when I finished the Olympic socks. The first ten were in basically random order, but I'll be adding new items to the bottom as I finish things.)

3. I decided to add my LibraryThing widget to the sidebar even though only a fraction of my books have been entered so far. (All the cool kids are doing it.) I'm going to try to add a few each day.

4. I was on Morning Edition on NHPR yesterday, talking about the Knitting Olympics. Want to hear me?

5. It has been brought to my attention (thanks Chris!) that an all-cotton sweater, as I was discussing last entry, might not work so well. So that project is on the back burner for the moment, and I'm open to yarn suggestions for a DK cotton blend.

6. I am SO ready for spring. So why is it in the twenties out? Not fair.

7. I'm still sick. Sleeping plenty but exhausted all the time. What's with this?

8. Okay, enough complaining. Let's end with something positive. Umm... oh yeah! Have you seen The Daily Kitten? Say it with me... Awwwwww.

You get a lot accomplished when you're sick. Love the new blog-look and the piece on NHPR was great. Are you planning for Beijing 2008 yet?

Loved your interview! And why is it that you are doing a better job of keeping up with random wednesdays than I am? Don't answer that!

As much as I don't really like KnitPicks, I've got to suggest their Shine.

Oh, thanks for the Daily Kitten link. Have you tried Cute Overload?

I just peeked at the Shine - it does sound promising (60 cotton, 40 modal).

Loved the interview, Kat! Great job! :)

I'm ready for spring too and what do we get? Snow.

Hello there! Great to hear you on NHPR! (as a fellow NPR junky, I'm very jealous that you got to actually be *on* NPR)
I'm sure I'll see you at the bookstore... ;-)
