mi ritrovai per una selva oscura
che la diritta via era smarrita.
Ahi quanto a dir qual era è cosa dura
esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte,
che nel pensier rinuova la paura!
In the meantime here I am working on the BSJ, what a fun project, full of challenges and excitement. I do not expect perfection, but rather enjoying the journey that this jacket and Meg and Elizabeth are taking me to. Ah Philosophy, the cacophony of the mind, sometimes idle chatter, sometimes the mind does what it is suppose to do, gather data, classify it and then bring it forth to what THE MIND IN ITSELF THINKS IS RELEVANT, not very accurate from the personal point of view, but very relevant from the mind point of view. Tangents, Right Angles and Elizabeth Zimmerman have a lot in common. This lady was a Math Lover and you can tell when she quotes PI.
Pi or π is one of the most important mathematical constants, approximately equal to 3.14159. It represents the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter in Euclidean geometry, which is the same as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius. Many formulas from mathematics, science, and engineering involve π. Since we are not going to give you a headache, we will leave it at that. She uses this mathematical equations to relate the Knitting in the Round.
Though knitting back and forth on rigid straight needles was the norm, she advocated knitting in the round using flexible circular needles to produce seamless garments and to make it easier to knit intricate patterns. She also advocated the Continental knitting method, claiming that it is the most efficient and quickest way to knit. During World War II, German or continental knitting fell out of favor in the UK and US due to its association with Germany. Most English books on knitting today are in the English or American style. Elizabeth Zimmerman helped to re-introduce continental style knitting to the United States.
So come along with me in this exciting journey of the BSJ and small talk about things. As Saturn is travels through fastidious detail oriented Virgo life always gets interesting. My life is never boring and so it goes. Thanks for stopping by!

Formerly known as SBC Park and Pacific Bell Park, the stadium was officially renamed AT&T Park on March 3, 2006, just two years after it adopted the SBC Park name. SBC Communications, the flagship sponsor of the park, rebranded itself as AT&T Inc. when it merged with AT&T Corp. in late 2005. This marks the third official name for the park since its opening in 2000.
This is a second View of the game almost at half time!
Thanks for stopping by and Go Giants, We won 4/3!

I am working on this project along as I am listening and watching Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop. Did you know that it was a PBS Mini Series, Kind of. I will tell you more about it when I am done with the viewing of it. So far I give it an A Plus. I am on part 2 of 3.
Going back to the Noro yarn. I have been reading a lot about the yarn and I have also been retraining myself to knit. I used to knit through the back loop of the stitch and now I am learning to knit in a different way. I am also going to have to re-learn how to purl, learning to purl in a more efficient way as E. Zimmerman will put it. This lady loved her Math!!!. This sock is a fast project, but I am doing three projects at the same time and when I take a break from each project I work on the other for a day or so. This project is very interesting as you are kind of wondering what kind of color will the yarn show you next. So here I am 4 inches away from the heel flap, hopefully by the middle of the week I will have knitted enough to start the heel flap. Thanks for stopping by!
