SNB Makes the Local News
Last night was Movie Night for the Kramer Household (we saw Just Friends, incidentally, which was way funnier than I expected), so I didn't get a ton of knitting time. I did, however, get to work on the scarf for a while after Paul went to bed (early meeting this morning).
I finished the N, which also means that I finished the second page of charts.
I was just about to turn off the TV and pull out a book when I saw the opening to the local news -- and there, on the screen, was a pair of needles and the newscaster's voice talking about a company that's trying to shut down local knitting groups. I hurried to get a tape in the VCR (once again thinking about how nice it would be to get a TiVo) and sat back down with my scarf to watch the news.
The story finally ran at about 11:20 -- for what seemed like about a minute. And I'll admit I was a little disappointed. Instead of showing one of the many groups that meet in the Columbus area, they showed just one girl -- and a few computer screen shots. They barely even explained the situation. But hey -- coverage is coverage.
I told Julie that she needs to give one of the competing stations a call and have them send a camera to tonight's SNB group.
Elsewhere in the news, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and signed up for my very own Bloglines account -- and I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner. Now, instead of clicking through the whole list of every last blog that I like to read (the list of which seems to grow every day) on a daily (and sometimes semi-daily) basis, I can just pull of my Bloglines page and know exactly what's new. And with all the time I save, I can knit a few extra rows every day. I tell ya -- it's pure genius.
