to bring you more yarn.
One half of my yarn for the feather-and-fan cardigan has arrived!
Artyarns Supermerino, colorway 39. I had forgotten how deep and denim-y this colorway is. It's not quite violet, but not completely blue either. You can see the slight varigations in the colorway.
Big props to Knitsmith Lisa B, who very, very generously took the time to buzz by The Point, pick up my yarn (and deal with a bookkeeping snafu), schlep it all around Manhattan, and ferry it back to Boston. It arrived safe and sound. Now I'm just waiting on my Claudia's Handpainted, and I can get started.
On another, more complex note (for me anyway), I noticed that Bloglines is once again taking for-ev-er to update me. Sometimes this delay is due to feed-validation issues, so I ran both my axom.xml and index.rdf feeds through a feed validator. First, let me say that I'm not exactly sure what it means when my feed "validates", other than to think that the link is working properly (for what or whom, I don't know). Second, I am truly mystified by this message I received when I checked the axom.xml feed:
This feed is valid, but may cause problems for some users. We recommend fixing these problems.
<feed version="0.3" xmlns="http://purl.org/atom/ns#" xmlns:dc="http://purl.o ...
I clicked on the help links, and they are really no help to me at all. I suspect that this is a Typepad problem and not something that I can fix on my own. But, I'm truly a moron when it comes to stuff like this. Any suggestions from you technical people?
