TWITTER, revisited

Thanks to my friend Jorah (seen in my last post wearing the gloves I made him) I now have a slightly better understanding of how Twitter might be helpful. He started to "follow" me and then I followed him, and now I can view his posts in among my own! I just could not understand how it would function, since I assumed you would have to go in and out from your Twitter account to those of the people you are following. Now I understand how one might use Twitter to correspond with friends who are out and about, or maybe at the same conference. It probably wouldn't work that well for me because I won't be texting and IM-ing to Twitter, as Jorah does. But now at least I understand why some people use it.

I just started my 10th pair of fingerless gloves in 2008! And so far they have all been straight knitting and seaming up-so much faster. But I'll do at least one pattern in the round-my peachy lace ones with the yarn from my secret swapper. The patterns calls for size 3 double pointed needles annd I actual;ly have that size. So--no more excuses!

Cool Tools: my favorite site


You can check your vocabulary and the site donates free rice to the world's hungry for each correct answer you get. Warning- it's very addictive- especially if you pride yourself on your vocabulary!
