A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

Location: In the Sierra Nevadas, United States

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

Animated Knitting Help

I ordered a learn to knit CD from Patternworks for Scarlet as part of her Christmas gift, along with the yarn and needles we picked up locally, and even though I ordered it on December 20th, it hadn't arrived yet. I called customer service today, and learned that my package was languishing in San Francisco... how can they find these things out and yet the post office there can't manage to send it on? Well, one of my fellow list-mates on Knitting for Cheap sent this link, to animated knitting instructions, making me wonder if I should have just cancelled the order outright! (Actually, there's also a little, special ball of yarn in there for me!) These animations are little cartoons that go through the motions of particular stitches; very cool!
