...Painfully Slow Crochet Progress
Even though I'm moving more and more quickly, it seems like I will never finish this tablecloth.
You'll note that I was able to add 3 more stars to the ever-growing tablecloth. And that was on a school night. And even with this kind of speedy crocheting, I'm still only halfway done with this project.
The way I figure it, I have to suffer through persisting till this beautiful project is done, and so do the readers of the blog (as my readership goes down to 2 hits a day).
I just finished an absolutely dreadful book that I most vehemently don't recommend.
Death of a Voodoo Doll by Margot Arnold is not only a murder mystery book (which is a genre I don't usually enjoy very much) but it's an absolutely awful example. Her storyline is disjointed and stuttering. The solving of the murder isn't at all clever or interesting. And she tries to add interest to her characters by surrounding them in all sorts of ineffective mystique. This was a waste of my reading time.
The book was written a while ago, and is part of a series of mysteries involving the same two so-called detectives, and I have one other in the series. I will not be reading it. Looking at the Amazon listing for this book will give you an idication of its value. Used copies for $1.40, and that is exorbitant.
Fredda writes, "The new ragg sweater looks interesting and as soft as I thought it would. My screen shows the dark part of the yarn as taupe and brown. How close am I?"
Very close...the dark color ranges from almost black to reddish brown and taupe for the lighter color is pretty accurate. The yarn is amazingly soft and silk, as is the resulting fabric.
Regarding my computer woes, Marilyn writes, "WTF is wrong with the computer? Email me. I'll help you without making you feel stupid. I promise."
Actually, my computer is completely unuseable at this point. I've got a loaner for the week while they configure a new one for me. All in all, it's working out quite well, in that I get a much nicer computer. It was how I broke it that was so stupid.
