I am miffed.

“I am miffed” doesn’t carry the full force of my original title for this entry (which was “Kerry Ferguson is a pole-smoking ho-bag”), but it is fully accurate to say at this point that I’m indeed miffed. Following her directions for the Aran sweater produces a garment with sleeves that terminate somewhere around the mid-forearm. This does not work for me.

grrr.

I’m going to try and salvage it without ripping the whole frigging sleeve out. If I can’t – well, let’s just say that I’m on a load of Robitussin right now, and cannot be held responsible for my actions.

Oh, P.S. – I finally took the time this afternoon to update my color scheme to match the lovely button that Urban GypZ made for me. Love it? Hate it? Colorblind and don’t know what I’m talking about? Let me know.

    Cool color scheme. I also uesed a little gold, but on this computer and with the fade it is looking alittle green. HMM.

    David,

    Why not?! Might expand your blog appeal. Get the guys hot and bothered as well. Ha ha ha.

    PS Glad you’ve finally come out of the closet. I’ll tell the boys. They’ll be delighted.

    Sheryl,

    Ack! Clearly my fashion faux-pas flippancy failed, if that’s what you think I meant. I’ll work on my weak jokes – and my alliteration.

  4. David Says:

    Sheryl,
    Yeah, the new pink theme for the blog is a facet of my recent decision to embrace early 80’s androgyny. Next week, I’m putting up a new banner that says

    FRANKIE
    SAY
    KNIT.

    Kaetchen,

    So you think David has changed his ways after his latest trip?

  6. Kaetchen Says:

    Unless you’re trying to put out the “hey, I’m gay in 1983” vibe, go with the full-length sleeves. Or do you have something to tell us?

  7. David Says:

    Dammit, Ken, that was supposed to be a secret plan!!!

  8. Ken Says:

    Maybe you could start some kind of new chic semi-sleeve trend. Sell “knit capri shirts” in the women’s section of Old Navy.

    Move to an impoverished Guatemalan village and take over production of next spring’s line.

    Ditto to the previous commenters, except that I definitely have clicked the wrong link!!!

    This isn’t the Squire Knight Dream House!! With action packed clickables in five different flavors.

    Lol, ditto on what spoonix said, I thought I’d clicked the wrong link! But I like it. ;o)

  11. spoonix Says:

    Bah.

    This new-fangled CSS fad will never take-off.

    And mark my words, neither will using some nimbly bimbly interpreted language for CGIs! Straight up C… that’s where the money is.

    And BTW, thanks for freaking me. I hit the site, saw the new color scheme, and immediately started heading for the Back button cause I assumed I clicked the wrong link. :)

    Stonering,
    Glad you enjoy the layout. Witness the majesty of CSS-based site design! Is it not nifty?

  13. stonering Says:

    I didn’t see a colorscheme change until I did a hard reload of the page. (Shift reload for anyone as clueless as I was until this week!) Now it’s shades of brown. I like it. It’s pretty interesting the way it adjusts itself to my screen width too. I am entertained. Although that doesn’t necessairly take much. :-) Good luck with you rsleeve refixing and with your cold!
