I rarely post only to complain on the blog. But I’ve got a short list of things that bug me, and I wanted to make them public.
- RSS feeds for blogs that only supply a snippet of the post. I’m becoming less and less likely to click to read the rest, because I feel manipulated into driving up someone’s site stats. Ok, I often still click over, but I hate the extra step. I’ll click over if I want to make a comment, of course, without hesitation.
- First stitches of a row that get sloppy and big, despite all efforts to handle the stitch gently, minimally, and with even tension. Generally these things get sucked into seams, but right now I’m working on a double-knitting tube, and the edges are wonky and I’m worried blocking won’t fix it. Will I have to take the tie out again?
- Early fall pollen season. Let’s not forget the ubiquitous ragweed. I cannot stop sneezing, blowing my nose, etc. I’m actually kind of miserable today with it.
That’s it for now. Like I said, just a short list. For today.
