 finishing up a pair of socks (fortunately too big for my 8
year old son, as he really wants to claim them <g>) & still
working on the loopy mohair garter stitch shawl. it's getting
to where i can only do 4-5 rows at a sitting before i get
bored with the garter stitch.
 i'm due to start a sweater knit-a-long on Sept.1. the sweater
i chose is mostly garter, but with lots of short row shaping
to keep it interesting. it's Drops Designs 110-1

 where the photo shows light grey, i'm using a varigated
pinks/green/chocolate brown & the darker parts will be a
matching chocolate brown. i may add cuffs from the varigated
onto the sleeves, but that depends on how much i have left
after the body.
 i also need to make a pair of knit & felted slippers before
the weather gets cold :)
 on the sewing front i'm working on simple curtains for my
bathroom & searching for something either lacy or very filmy
to make drapes for my dining room & kitchen. i don't want to
block any light, just filter it a bit.
 sometime this winter i'll have to make the boy a new set of
Renaissance faire clothes & myself at least a high neck smock
(i'm not one to show off my chest anyway, but since i had
cancer i need to be more covered than any purchased smock
covers).
 oh, & i'm teaching the boy wet felting & weaving, along with
sewing & knitting.

well, i'm starting him weaving on a little table loom. it
doesn't currently have sheds, but they can be added as he
progresses if he wants to get into fancier weaves. i also have
a small Mirrex tapestry loom that i bought for bead weaving,
but can obviously be used for regular tapestry weaving (on a
small scale... 12" x 18", i think). it warps very fine so i
don't think he can manipulate that yet though.
 he is really enjoying the wet felting, at least through the
prefelt stage where it starts holding together. when it gets
to the hard felting stage it becomes difficult for him, so i
usually finish that part.
 i'm pleased that he takes an interest in handwork.

 i wonder, as energy becomes more scarce & expensive, if
public areas like transport & shops will switch to more
reasonable temperatures. there really isn't any reason to cool
a bus to 16C. i keep my car set to 20C, which seems quite cool
in the summer & warm in the winter. my house is generally 68
in winter & off in the summer, so it's a few degrees cooler
than outside, but not much. it rarely gets over 37C here
(winters can get to -40 though <why is Celcius & Farenheit the
same below 0?>)

Re: Were did all those strange non sewing posts come


Are you new to Usenet?  This is an 'open community' and the newsgroups
are not moderated. At worst, some groups are free for alls, and  at
best, they are self-moderated where members politely remind the others
of 'the rules' (according to the charter of the specific group).

Anyway, this sort of activity (OT to very, very OT) historically
happens in 'spurts.' You'll see a bunch, then not any for months.  So
use the filters in your newsreader to zap them before they hit your
inbox.

Thank you Irene , i am not new to newsgroups etc, I was just asking a
question instead of shouting:" ENOUGH , go away unrelated posts.!!!".
Your remark that they come in spouts , reminds me of the Ratus
Alexandries , that wanders in groups and every several years comes and
eats fruits of a tree.

I'm surprised that you use GG to post. That's a favourite of trolls and
wreckers. I filter all posts that come from GG. SO I miss a few genuine
posters, but I see virtually nothing of the rubbish. I only picked up your
post because Irene included it in her reply.

We-ell, as a very long time user of news groups, I see all web portals like
GG or SewGirls (spit, spit) as gifts of the devil. Alright, very much a
personal PoV, and I wouldn't dream of telling someone else how they should
access news groups, perhaps just to point out that people who use web
portals, no matter how genuine, run the risk that some of their target
audience may not be reading their posts. And you must admit, using a proper
purpose-built news reader gives you far more flexibility, and I'd suggest
makes the experience far more satisfying.

I have my news reader set to mark-as-read posts I'm filtering, and as I
normally only view unread posts yours doesn't show up unless I view all
posts.

You could look at NIN

http://www.individual.net /

It's text-only news groups - no binaries, but I would be surprised if you
would want to visit any of those!

The cost is just 10 euros per year. They also have a configuration page as
well for most popular news clients. The only downside, the payments system
was a bit flaky - if I remember rightly, it didn't like me because I wanted
to change my CC details, I think it was just the expiry date. I've heard
similar from more than one source, although that may have been resolved by
now.

There are other news services out there, but some of them have rather
dubious reputations. NIN is generally well regarded.

I used to be with NIN, but when I changed my ISP a while back, they have a
reasonable news server so I use that now.

Richard
Thank you for your advice and observations , i was a bit taken back by
your reffering to GG and sewgirls , with the name you gave them. We
live in different world and for me this is the best possibility , thus
i take it. I do not wander the internet as i am overworked  with what
i do , but look for some enriching of my abilities . it is a bit
frustrating when people look down on our possibilities ,, maybe it is
your loss that you don`t see me in your palaces ,,, mirjam :>:>:>:>:>

No offence intended, I guess it's a drawback to living in a largely secular
society, where we use expressions in common parlance with little
consideration that others might take them perhaps rather too literally.

Hmm, delicate question, are there other constraints that may be operating
against you? I wasn't particularly aware of such probs in your part of the
world.

I think most genuine posters take that PoV

Hmm, I wonder if perhaps you view my comments just a little too personally.
As I see things, there are two probs with web portals, primarily they
generate too many irrelevant and inflamatory posts, so genuine posters can
get drowned out in the noise. They also tend to ignore a lot of the
protocols associated with usenet - the mechanics, if you like of how posts
are supposed to be related one to another.

The signal to noise ratio is the problem for me, and I just can't be
bothered to plough through the masses and masses of dross to get to the
genuine stuff.  

I shall hope to pick up clues from others if I happen to miss any of your
posts! :-)

If I may offer an alternative, there is a free service available from
motzarella.org that I have heard nothing but good reports about.  That
gives you a USENET server without the clunkyness of Google or other
web-based servers.  It has no effect on your regular Internet connection.

    I've got to agree with Richard; we're not the only ones here who
filter out Google Groups because of all of the trash - as you noticed.
Because of that, I don't see your posts either, but I read your last
one when it was quoted by another.

    I don't see how your ISP even knows what you are doing with Agent;
nevertheless, you can certainly use one of the news servers mentioned
(I'll add a free one: http://news.aioe.org/ ) and there is no reason
you can't use Agent with it and your ISP.
