Hump Day

Hey, look, it's Wednesday! Wha hoo. And this is a short week for me. More on our weekend plans tomorrow. Let's just say that much fun and a yarn store trip is planned.

I was looking through our University newspaper and found an article that I was interviewed for--A Blog's Life. The reporter called me the other day because she noticed my interest in blogs on my department page. I was a little worried about misquoting, at it sometimes happens with our paper. I could just see the news--Professor uses knitting blog for subversive anti-Bush propaganda. Just what our paper would assume! It doesn't look like this was misquoted, but I find the Psych professor's comments regarding blogs disturbing. The article states:

"Dr. Brian Doss, an assistant professor in the clinical psychology department, said some people might start blogs for self-disclosure and to gain attention. If the need for attention gets to an extreme, it is called histrionic personality disorder, Doss said.

'Not everyone who has a blog has that,' Doss said, 'but if someone has histrionic personality disorder, they might be attracted to blogging.'"

Huh. I might have a histrionic personality disorder. Ok. Let's hope that this professor was misquoted.

Here's my latest "I want to make" project:

The pattern is Sursa from the Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton book 2 (the same one that Klaralund is in). I really like the Noro yarns and this is a smart use of the pretty striped colors.

I want to make this cape/stoll in these exact colors. It is so pretty and interesting for a beginning knitter. I can learn those nifty YOs. A few steps more and maybe I will try a very simple lace type pattern. Oh yeah. I want to be a process knitter. Stockinette gets pretty boring.
