    Hi Helena,
    great episode. Love the baby dress, colour and design.
    the shawl is developing nicely.
    why not set a goal of one hat a month? then if you finish two objects, no pressure to do a second hat. altho’ be great if you did.
    what is a ”split system”?
    take care,

      Hi Enid
      if i get too overwhelmed with the baby hats i might set myself a goal like that, but seeing as it can take me a long time to knit something the hats wont be too often, except for small Nerd Wars stuff. then i might set myself a different goal for small objects.

      A “Split-System” is an air conditioning unit that is mounted on the wall and is a heater and cooling system, as opposed to Ducted air conditioning with the ducts in the ceiling

    You’ve given me the urge to watch Firefly again. I recently gave away my TV, but hopefully I can play them on my computer. So many things I want to watch, and so little time! Thanks for another great episode – I literally laughed out loud when you stretched the shawl over your face 🙂

    That’s exciting to shop for a new house!
    Oh you are using two circs for your socks. I’m just trying that out for the first time with success. I do miss my dpns though. Wow look at your lace work. It’s perfect to me! I have never knit lace without a ton of mistakes. It rarely matches up to actually look like a pattern. Luckily I’m not too picky and wear them anyway. heh!
    I love Firefly but I haven’t watched it in a while. I am always watching podcasts, vlogs and some Netflix when I have down time. I’ll probably watch the whole series all at once in a few years. lol!

      Hi sue. I always use magic loop for knitting in the round. I just find it easier. Thanks for the comment about my lace. That’s lovely. It’s slow going but I’m getting there. Videocasts take up most of my watching time now. I don’t really watch normal tv these days. DVDs and video casts. That all really. We don’t have Netflix here. But I have a lot of DVDs in our collection.
