I just wasn't in blogging mode the last few days. Schwinkelberries did me in!

Good news and Bad news: Good news: I've listed my new sock pattern, Forward and Back on Ravelry as a freebie. Hubbo tells me I'm nuts to give away patterns, but I kind of like the "give-back" factor. It's a pass-it-forward thing. Bad news: I am going to start to sell more of my patterns. I'll probably go back and forth with this thing.

Everything is quiet here, for which I am most grateful. You can keep excitement, as in that old curse: May you live in interesting times.

I did get to the gym yesterday and had a power house workout. And today I know it. Just a wee bit sore in odd places, like my waist, and inside of my thighs. I felt so good when I left the gym. Even the treadmill zipped along! And then I came home and dyed some yarns, had leftovers for dinner, finished a sock, and started a new pair.

That was yesterday. Today I have the blahs, probably because it's gray and rainy. I do not like days like today. All I want to do is crawl under the covers and sleep. No sympathy is needed; I'm just kvetching! Kvetching, for those of you who are not members of the tribe, means complaining, whining. It's a great word and needs to be used more often. If you are complaining, ok, you're complaining. But if you are kvetching, you are really whining. The answer to someone who kvetches is to say: yeah, yeah, yeah. Get your act together and stop all that kvetching." It can also be spelled qvetching, although I don't know why.

So now, I'm going to stop kvetching and go write some checks and empty the dishwasher, and knit! So there!

MamaMay - Yesterday I was so blah,and today I am a powerhouse! It's bright outside.
That's what a little good weather can do for you.

Jo at Celtic Memory Yarns - It's nice to give something away for free. I'm glad you like my yarns.

Emily - If only I had thought of chocolate. Maybe I should make up for it tonight. I only eat medicinal chocolate. Dark Chocolate!

I am feeling the same way today. Overcast skys do that, I guess. Anyway, have to go chase a little munchkin, she doesn't get this way unless she is tired...

You are absolutely right to give a pattern away to your friends on Ravelry for free every now and then. It's what makes the world go round. If it were not for the generosity of some designers, where would we all be? You stay with your instincts!

(Great hand-dyeing by the way.)

Kvetch away, my dear. It's grey and rainy over here in France too. I stayed in for most of the day and knit, listened to podcasts, and ate chocolate.
