Tick-tock and swap-bot

[no title]

Ohhhh, how slowly knitting progresses when never the needles are in hand.  Seconds leap into hours, leap into days, then weeks.  Before I know it, a month has slipped by.  Long gone are the easy days of summer, boy.

These days, my fingers are aching to finish something other than a sentence; I've been struggling to find time to sit down and knit.  I see a window clearing up, so Miri, don't fret, your scarf will be done, complete, and in your hands before the weather turns to cold.   I'm contemplating daily affirmations in the form of staring at this beautiful Forbes Forest scarf each morning, imagining it to be completed by me in lush brown alpaca.  


Bring a little swap into your life

Way back, a whole 2 months ago, when signing up for the CD Swap, I discovered the makings of Swap-bot, a clever swap engine that takes the grunt work out of online swaps.  Being a swap keener, I've been checking in every now and again to see how things are progressing.  Things are looking up, the site officially went up this week, swap-bot is now a go.  If you want to give them a hand in testing it out, do wander over and sign up for inaugural swap-bot post-card swap

Hey Anna! No worries about timing - I understand (as I *just* got gauge for my swapee's project, so I cast on last night!)

I admit, reading Kathy's high praise of the pattern has got me really looking forward to seeing your resulting Forbes Forest!

And thanks for the Swap-bot tip - I bet that will get some serious use once their testing is complete! I signed up for the postcard swap while I was poking around the site. :)
