Random Wednesday

First, go buy some Can-Do yarn from Heather.


You’ll be helping a great cause and getting some really beautiful sock yarn in the process. Can-Do. It’s a win-win.

Second, I get to tell you that Leslie honored me with a Blogging With Purpose award last week. I was really flattered because Leslie’s blog is one I have read since before I started my own blog. She’s got wonderful crafts and photos and I really enjoy what she has to say. So, now it’s my turn to offer up this award to 5 blogs that I think are purposeful.

Alarming Female – for raising my consciousness
Lolly Knitting Around – for her inspiring colors and photographs
Beadlizard – for her principles about healthy and natural ways of living
Habetrot – for her amazing postcard collection and wicked sense of humor
I’m Knitting As Fast As I Can – for her technical knitting prowess

Also, I have a new toy. And it’s red. Very very red.

Finally, I just couldn’t resist taking this test. Not bad, eh?

100 words

  1. HUNDRED!?!?! Wow! My mom says that back in the day she was clocked at 120. Yikes! Wicked cute cozies, one looks like I’d be happy with it as a hat! And great looking sweater (and fabulous background too). Funny about ‘fits like a shirt’. I don’t get that, dh here wants a sweater to fit over his t shirt, his flannel shirt, and sometimes another shirt… so that means XL (and long too). Maybe that’s one of the reasons I haven’t finished his sweater!

  2. So colorful today! Glad you got a nod, it’s well deserved! Very cool toy and nice stash addition, bet that’s going to knit up really nice! ah, I don’t do typing tests, I’ll hold on to my dignity there 😉

  3. What a cool phone!
    I’m looking forward to checking out your list of bloggers with a purpose. There are a few that I don’t know.
    Tried the typing test. I’m impressed with your score. Mine was not so impressive.

  4. 100 words?? Whoa! Now I feel really slow. And I have more blogs to read (I already read some but not all of those).

  5. I type 120 words/minute. that typing class I was forced to take b/c my “occupational education” didn’t include home ec, typing or cooking (requirements for girls. ahem) was kinda worth it. I was able to make money in college typing papers. At work, I am able to enter data fast and work up reports very quickly.

    tell me how you like the Palm– I am needing to release my Blackberry into the wild. 🙂 The price per month (via At&T) are too much.

    hmm…blogging with a purpose…. good idea!

  6. I took the test…got 94 words per minute. Sweet. 🙂 Do you have any ideas for a beginner lace project? That’s the next technique I want to tackle, since I’ve now tackled cables. 🙂

  7. Congrats! That’s a great honor. I’m kind of surprised – I totally expected a mention of your Lady Vols victory.

  8. Hmph. I got 79wpm with 0 errors. I’m better than that on the computer. I need to take it again.

    Fun yarn and coooooool phone! I’m SO all about red!

  9. Hmph. I got 79wpm with 0 errors. I’m better than that on the computer. I need to take it again.

    Fun yarn and coooooool phone! I’m SO all about red!

  10. Congratulations on having your blog selected! Yikes, I only typed 65 wpm with 2 errors (one of which was the word “at!”). I obviously need to practice.

  11. 100 words per minute?? whoa. how cool… as for me? errr, not even gonna attempt it. I’m a two-finger -charlie on the keyboard.
    Congrats on your award. How fun!

    And that new phone? sigh… it looks wonderful – and a little overwhelming all at once (with all those buttons)

  12. Wow! 100 wpm? That’s what I typed in high school, but I doubt I’m that quick anymore.

    I’m off to go look at the blogs you linked to. I love seeing new blogs!

  13. Like Teyani, I am also a two-finger Charlie.

    And I already have two skeins of Can-Do!

  14. Thanks for the linky, Carole! I likes the red phone–it goes nicely with your blog color scheme.

    About that 100 wpm, are you saying you can type that with your thumbs on your new red phone? 😀

  15. I am so very jealous of your new toy!! A little part of me regrets getting that Blackberry when I have so many Palm OS programs…*sigh*

  16. Thank you! Guess I should blog about the local vegs and fresh bread we’re eating instead of about the two pints of coffee ice cream I had yesterday?

    Used to type 100+ wpm. Too chicken to check now, though I’m probably faster. It’s all those years of Hanon and scales — when your grandmother is the town’s piano teacher, such things are compulsory.
