Just saw a news release that Ray Bradbury has died at 91. Great writer and I've found great inspiration and entertainment from his science fiction and other writings. It is rough that we have lost several great writers over the past year. However - Lifa [and Knitting] goes on.

I was very saddened to learn that Maurice Sendak - a marvelous author/illustrator - has died. I have been a great admirer of his various works [books, set designs, etc.] ever since I was quite young. I always thought his critters, etc. would make great knitted toys. May he be at peace and Blessed.

Just want to say how much I'm enjoying the knitting of our very own Mill's pattern - "The Brethren Sock". Thanks, Mill, for the great pattern.

Sometimes, I feel Blanche DuBois got it right: You always depend upon the kindness of others.

As some of you may recall, I wondered - in an earlier post - if Cat Bordhi was inspired by my twisted heel stitches when she published a pattern that also used them.

I just found a survey about "Gender and Knitting" over at the "Needlework News and Events" forum on Ravelry. It's only aimed at American Ravelry users and the person conducting the research would really like input from men. I found it pretty easy to take and got it finished in less time than estimated by the surveyers. If you have a Ravelry account, I urge you to go over and complete it. [Totally anonymous, not that I cared whether my name was used or not.] It gives us a chance to - hopefully - give a better idea of how many guys are actually knitting in America.

Hey - I am considering getting a simple [and I do mean simple] digital camera that I can use for photos and then posting them here and on Ravelry. I need a fairly inexpensive one as my budget is limited and I don't want to spend too much money that can go towards yarn. I figured my best move would be to get feedback from people more in the know - Any suggestion? Thanks. [Also, do I need Flickr or anything like that to post? I seem to remember something on Ravelry that talked about it. I'd rather limit my on-line presence to the bare minimum.]

Okay, you gents. I am now on Ravelry. Still Joe-in Wyoming, all one word. [Why won't they take my spacing?
