Bah Humbug

I was giving a presentation on the internet as an education tool today, and when I'd finished one of my colleagues calmly expressed the view that blogs were all just about gossip. Bah humbug.

But, to prove his point... have you seen this (new anti-craft!) and this (short needles for communting!) and this (a friend made a LJ syndication feed for this blog)? Ooo, and did you hear about this (very exciting, new British yarn magazine, aiming at the more Interweave market than Simply Knitting)?

I've finished my top secret piece. All that remains is a single stray end to weave in. I'd blocked it and everything before that end decided to show itself. It had been annoyingly hiding up until then. As I said before, bah humbug.

Evidence of this bleeding end, and the notes for the maths I have to do to work out the larger sizes, is all you're getting for now.

EDIT: the fourth link up there (to rumours of new British yarn magazine) is less of a secret, go have a look here.

I always find an end after blocking -- usually during the first wearing!

It won't work in reality, that's exactly what I consider.
