Day 2 and all is well

Okay, so I have figured out how to add links on the side - now I need links in the blog content (sounds like I need eggs to go with said links - get it? sausage? okay then...)

And there must be pictures - so I got one up and I think I will go for another one. But what should I show you all (all = my mother, so far - but i have high hopes). It could be yarn or fabric- that would be gratuitous. I could show you pics from my fab vacation in Germany last fall....and that does include sock yarn at the grocery store. Or the cats! Do I have any digital pics of the fatties? let me see...

There don't seem to be any cat pics on my work computer but there was this:

Depeche Mode!!!!!!!!!!! The first time I saw them was about 20 years ago - My freshman year of High School and I have been obsessed ever since. So when my friend, Starr, asked if I wanted to go when they came back through DC ('casue i missed them the last time due to work - geesh) I jumped up and down like a 5 year old and said YES PLEASE!!!!!!!! And they were here and we had amazing seats! And it was fabulous!

SOOOO other than the knitting and the sewing and watching way too much tv - I am a Depeche Mode fan - and my crush has always been on Andrew Fletcher - I like the quiet ones. Enough of that...

Here is a gratuitious yarn picture:

Small little souvenir/yarn shop in Donaueschingen, Germany. Bought some Regia Silk yarn there - for socks, of course. Even showed the sweet woman who owned the shop how to knit socks on circulars - she had never seen it before! And was excited to see that I could make 2 at the same time.

Lunch is over! Back to work then!

Welcome to blogland! I totally missed the sock yarn in the grocery stores, which is weird because the stores were SO small. Both the grocery stores in my little suburb (Bad Godesberg outside of Bonn) could have fit in the chip aisle at the local walmart.

I've found Blogger to be fairly user-friendly. You're off to a great start!

Okay... lost the post-it with your e-mail addy. Shoot me an e-mail at jill [at] writingortyping [dot] com and I'll forward the photos.

Better do it, otherwise... the Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk gets it.

Hey, you have been in Germany recently? Donaueschingen is not near me, but seen for whole Germany it´s not so far away from me. So what about having a cup of coffe, ein Stückchen leckeren Kuchen und ein bißchen Plaudern über Stricken und die Welt beim nächsten Mal?
