In a perfect world....

I would post a photo of the latest Baby Surprise sweater (which is complete) and matching hat (which is not). But it's been rainy and the hat isn't finished hence there is no photo.

Also in this perfect world, I would not have woken up this morning with the beginnings of a head cold. This time of year it's usually allergies...but this is definitely a cold. Thank heavens for Zicam, which I hope will make this short if not sweet.

Finally to continue the perfect world fantasy: the cable modem connection would be up and running. But as it turns out, the yahoo subcontractors that buried the cable to the house used too small a gauge of wire for distance and the tv's and computers to be serviced in this house. Although we have now have reasonable tv reception (and too many channels IMO) the computer is still on dial up. So we will wait for 12 to 14 days for a subcontractor to come out and make our yard look even more like the gopher from Caddyshack lives here.

On a more positive note, I have found some really neat resources through some other blogs. I'd like to encourage you to go over and look at In a Minute Ago
for a bunch of links to online weaving and related textile resources. While you are at her site, click on the patchwork button in the right hand column to browse through some interesting and well documented quilt squares.

Another tidbit to make weavers happy: Peter Collingwood had given Ralph Griswold permission to put The Techniques of Rug Weaving and Rug Weaving, Beyond the Basics on line. Both books are OOP. I'm lucky enough to own the second edition of the former title. To check out the weaving resources that Ralph had made available online, checkout Ralph Griswold's Archives

Finally, for some inspiration and some good old fashioned fiberartist's "eye candy" go check out Daily Writings at The Artist's Loft

Well..that should be enough to keep you busy until I get on the other side of this cold.
