Is ravelry a word?

I have discovered bliss. This site manages to capture everything that is good and geeky about knitting and crocheting. Details abound. I can upload photos of my projects along with the pattern, the yarn, down to the types of needles used. It is still in beta and you need an invitation but it kept me occupied for several hours and added too many projects to my list.

Ravelry and my site

worth as many words

I love photography. Not the actual taking pictures part because I do not have the eye for it. But I enjoy captured images, most of them evoking laughter, surprise, amazement, empathy, or some other emotion. The links below, especially Time's amazing images are some of my favorites to visit.

where's the fire?

Now that the first ten episodes have aired on Nickelodeon, the third and last season of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" is in full swing. I have not been ecstatic about the Fire Book but there have been exceptional episodes and still makes me laugh out loud. But Aang and gang are alone in the fire nation and their powers and friendship are growing. Now Aang, the Avatar, has returned and I sincerely hope that he learns some firebending soon because both Azula and Firelord Ozai are very powerful and manipulative. I will not spoil anything for those reading but I was happy with the other fire nation characters in The Day of the Black Sun. I am eager to see it all play out.
