For any of you that had been following my posts on non machine knitting information and links, I am adding a reminder that they have migrated to Pinterest, where I have recently added a board on a “tough of technology” that includes information that may be of interest to those interested in hacks and e textiles.

I recently have received some posts asking in the line of “Is it possible for me to copy and paste your articles for my blog site or is that copyright infringement?” I have chosen to share information freely here, appreciate the question. There certainly is no way to police what people do with the data, and google searches or sites such as tumblr sometimes will turn up some photos/info with credit as to its origins missing. I have made it a habit when posting articles compiled by others to give them credit, with direct links to their publications as provided by them, would appreciate the same courtesy being extended if my own information is to be shared on the web. TIA.
I want to once again thank those that take the time to leave comments, and to respond to those who ask for either the possibility of a newsletter or frequency of planned updates. I have no plans for the first, and my ramblings on machine knitting tend to happen as time allows or as I get intrigued by resurgence of techniques and enter sharing mode, without a definite schedule or self imposed deadline in mind.
I have been enjoying this site for eye and brain candy regularly, appreciate that posted material may be tracked back to its original sources. For anyone interested: my own boards may be found here.
Up to this point I have deliberately kept most of the personal out of my blog. However, I have recently had a lot of exterior work done to my 2 family home, in a Boston suburb. The painting contractor I used was the same one that worked on my property the last time, has worked for relatives in the interim, and by all accounts still has a great reputation. The experience this time was far from positive, resulting in from permanent damage to structure to uneven work quality throughout, with total disregard for weather extremes either with respect to paint application or hardship on crew, and strings of broken verbal promises. Company initials are F_N, area code 617. If more information is wanted, I can provide it to valid email that reaches me through my contact link in blogroll.
A leaf like the one that started my late leaf frenzy is actually featured in the spring 2012 issue of Vogue Magazine. Their online preview is here, with the corresponding shawl in the rethink pink section on page 2. So many leaves, so many ways to use them!
For those of you that have been following my blog for a while: thank you for the continued inquiries on a possible newsletter. I have no plans to publish one, I choose to post as time allows and on where my flights of knitting fancy take me, so leaps/breaks in threads are bound to occur. I do receive comments and read them. Since they do not generally add to post contents they are not published. If a personal response is sought, please use Contact link in my blog roll or provide a valid email with your comment that will not bounce my info@.com address.
