as any real blogger would,
i pay attention to my stats:
which websites linked to mine
how many people visited that day
from which countries people read
that kind of thing.
the most entertaining, however,
are definitely the ‘search engine terms’.
‘these are the terms people used to find your site’, says wordpress.
today (yesterday technically),
one search in particular took the cake:
how to have sex at the fairgrounds without making a big show lesbian
i doubt anything can ever top that.
somehow, i now feel obligated to investigate,
to find the best way to have sex at the fairgrounds without making a big show lesbian.
i wouldn’t want to disappoint her.

you may recall that there’s an alpaca in colorado named after me.
well now there’s a baby chick in oregon named in my honor.
the fiber world is a weird place,
but i like it.

knitting tip of the day:
bunch up your stitches at the end of your needle.
the yarnharlot calls this “spring loading”
because the stitches are sitting there ready to jump off the needle.
(see ms. pearl-mcphee, i was paying attention)
this can cut seconds off of those long rows
and saving seconds can really add up,
especially if you’ve got hundreds of stitches on your needles like i do.
be warned! – spring loading can change your gauge.
so don’t do it in the middle of your project!!
this lame-ass post was just an excuse
to share the fact that i’m actually knitting.
it’s a rare treat.
join my joy.
