What do Kinnearing and ebooks have in common?

Absolutely nothing as far as I know, but I needed a segue, hence the title.

I spent last week in Indian Wells, California and you might want to be sitting down for this next sentence. I did absolutely zero knitting. The bff and I went out for the BNP tennis tournament, among other things, and I never even took my yarn out of the bag. Sad but true. I did manage some reading on my Nook, however. I've yet to buy a Nook knitting book and I'm wondering what they're like. Anybody try this yet?

I came upon this NY Times article today. Feel free to weigh in on the topic. I'd love to hear your opinions on this too.

Now for the Kinnearing:

The guy in the white shirt is Kevin Anderson, a South African tennis player. I think the other guy is Rik De Voest, also of South Africa. If I'm wrong, feel free to let me know.

FYI--the cell phone coverage in the Indian Wells/Palm Desert area stinks. I don't know how realtors and teenagers survive. Lots of times I couldn't even get enough bandwidth to send a text, let alone do any mobile blogging, and I couldn't cobble together enough time to sit down with my laptop in a Starbucks and do any kind of work that required an internet connection. You'd think with all the $$$ out there, they'd have gold plated cell towers but what do I know.

The rest of the week doesn't look good for knitting, since I have some knit-related computer work I'm doing and the rest of the BNP is being televised until about midnight every night. I'm trying to catch up on my blog reading, but Blogger is being weird and not letting me read anything older than about 16 hours, so I have to use Google Reader. I hate Google Reader--it's so ugly it makes me want to dig out my own eyeballs with a spoon, so it's taking me FOREVER to read all the blogs I follow, but I'm working on it. I was also going to rant about Daylight Savings Time kicking my butt, but I'm too tired. Talk amongst yourselves.


  1. love your kinnearing!
    Sometimes it happens, you just don't get to knit. But, it's ok, think of it as a break. :)
    I'm looking forward to baseball season!!

  2. no worries - I've been knitting for both of us! Bleeding fingers and all ...

  3. My rant about daylight savings time... I cringe every time someone says it gives us more daylight. It doesn't change how the earth turns, it just changes the time stamp we use to divide up the day.

    Glad to hear you're out having fun!

  4. Have a great time! Daylight savings time is taking me some getting used to as well! You've got me wanting to try blogger now. I'd thought it had gone away.

    Have a great time!

  5. Tee hee, I love that you Kinnear tennis players - because I Kinnear figure skaters. :)


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
