**insert real blog post here**

It was inevitable that I’d miss at least one blog post during this crazy-ass tax season. I’m busier than I normally am and have to do more maths than I normally do which makes everything more stressful. woo.  The up-side to this is that next year will be cake since I’ll have four less companies to wrangle.  The down-side is I’ll have four less companies and therefore four less companies’ worth of income.  boo.

Oh well, that’s why I started sewing again.  I’d much rather be listening to a book and making bags then pushing a pencil.

…but I digress.

I planned on taking pictures of my Knotty Glove progress (done with the thumb increases on the first glove!) and my Mad Color Weave socks (most of the way done on the first leg!) but I just didn’t have a chance today…oh and I have a new addition to the ‘herd’ that I wanted to photograph today too.  Alas, it will have to wait…

..I promise, I’ll be back before April.  ;o)


In honor of today being International Talk like a Pirate Day I give you this quiz:




You Are 45% Pirate

Ahoy matey! Ye can think o' yerself as a swashbuckler in trainin'.    

If ye study hard an 'do what the captain tells ye, ye may be gettin' part o' the booty.

Get to work on yer pillagin', swordfightin', an' drinkin'.

Ye dasn't want to end up in Davy Jones' locker, so make sure ye pipe down when the captain be around.








I also give you a couple new links that I forgot to include yesterday – have a few paperbacks laying around that you don’t plan on reading again but don’t really know what to do with them?  Put them up on BookMooch.  Oh, I found another site that I like ZipList, it helps me keep a virtual grocery list that automatically categorizes the items I add so I can find them by aisle.  Another good site for finding bargains?  Bargainist.

Also, is anyone else out there anywhere near as excited as I am that Dancing with the Stars starts back up again next week?  Or Heroes?  Or The Office?  Or Survivor?  Monday can’t come fast enough for this TV addict.

Sorry I have no eye candy for this week, I hope to get back in the swing of photographing everything around me this weekend.  ;o)

I give up…

ETA: It appears to be working again so just ignore my babbling about changing feeds…sorry. If you already switched, don’t worry you’ll still see my content and your feed will get redirected on my end so you don’t need to do anything. Again, I’m sorry for the confusion. Regular knitting and spinning content coming soon! ;o)

…bloglines and feedburner seem to not get along anymore so, after multiple attempts to get bloglines to listen, and trying to fix it by redirects, etc., I decided to say goodbye to feedburner for the time being. This completely sucks because I just lost 3 years of stats but I’d rather my posts show up in bloglines than keep the stats so…buh bye feedburner.

This means that those of you who are interested in hanging around at this particular party will need to resubscribe to my feeds ETA: since the feedburner feed will no longer exist in two weeks. I’m *really* sorry to have to do this since the reason why I had feedburner in the first place was so that I wouldn’t have to ask people to move whenever I had the urge to mess with stuff.

The new feed is located at http://www.jessaluknits.com/feed/ you can click on that link to subscribe or, if you use Google Reader or Newsgator, you can click on the button over there —> OR if you have a bookmark to subscribe to your favorite reader, you can do that too. Oh, you can also cut and paste the new feed address into your current subscription – if you click on ‘edit feed’ in your reader, that option should come up. ;o)

Thank you for your patience during this transition, I’m sorry to have to do this but having my feed ignored by bloglines for two weeks was just too much. (bloglines sucks, in case you didn’t already know my feelings on that point and yes, that’s my freedback in case there’s a lacky somewhere at bloglines still searching for that word) ;o)

For those who read all the way through this lovely boring post about feeds, etc. you get a pretty picture:

Spring Flowers - Bleeding Heart

For those who decide to stick with me – thanks for sticking with me!! For those who don’t, I’m sorry you’re moving on but it was good while it lasted…hopefully we can still be friends. ;o))

ETA: I’ve added a Bloglines button to the sidebar to make the transition easier for those who will still be using Bloglines.
