Today I learnt how to do a New Thing.

I have not actually done it yet, but after having read the instructions through many times and having had a few goes and still not getting it, I found a slightly different explanation. I had the 'aha' moment and I'm pretty confident I'll be able to do it now. And confident that it will be a useful thing to know in the future.

Yes, it is a knitting thing, which is why I'm not going to go on about it. Also, I was missing something screamingly obvious that I would not have missed had I the clear head that I used to have, I swear.

I'm just pleased that I've learnt something new. It feels like it's been a while.

I think tomorrow I might put some coffee and some tea into ice cube trays. We will be having another day in the mid 40s on Saturday, so it would pay to find a civilised way to get my caffeine hit.

And speaking of caffeine, here is an oldie but a goodie:

Cup of Brown Joy - Elemental.

Excellent video/song- haven't heard it before.

I'm currently in a state of (you know how my sampler has swirly vines all over it?)

a) do them in a tremendously complicated,but beautiful stitch, get kudos from the embroidery community, go mad

b) do chain stitch.

Right now, I'm leaning toward chain stitch. I like having my sanity.

When I say "herbal" you say "No thanks."

Exactly.

What's a gal to do? I can't have caffeine anymore. *sigh*

By that way, I mean I love herbal tea in a crazy way.
