yarn stuffs (knitting and spinning)

I finished spinning up another yarn yesterday, but it's drying, and I'm thinking I want to ply it before I say it's finished... I do like it a lot though! I think I'm getting better at sending off my babies favorite handspun skeins. I have such a connection with my handspun, sometimes they're hard to part with when I sell them. I'm sure they're all going to lovely homes, I just wish I knew what became of them. :) *sigh*

ooh, check out this. I saw it on one of my lj groups. Guerilla Spinning! That's right. take over your local coffee shop!

Thanks for the comments on the moebius! I should say that I do love the color, just not the length. I think maybe I'll frog it and either make it shorter and wider, or use it for the lap blanket from Weekend Knitting since I have more of the yarn, and it's quite warm... hmm... such decisions I'm forced to make!

on comments
if you haven't thrown in your 2 cents on commenting, please do! I really want to know what people prefer. I do understand Abigail, because I am quite used to the livejournal comment system, where you reply at the post and the commenter receives it in email form... WHY BLOGGER??!! WHY CAN'T YOU DO THAT?? AND WHY MUST YOU HAVE A CRAPPY COMMENTING SYSTEM THAT ONLY LETS PEOPLE COMMENT 50% OF THE TIME!!!??

end rant

random linky... I love it when artists sneak into big museums and hang up their work. It just amuses me...

Ok, I love the little girls shell on the left. Do they make big-girl sizes?

I think the type of reply depends on the situation. If you want to reply so that the commenter and all readers see the reply, then I would respond in the next post. But if you just want to reply to the commenter direclty, then I would email. I try to avoid replying in the comments, though, because once I comment on a blog I often forget to go back and read through other comments later.

Hmmmm... except I just realized that blogger comments don't automatically give you the commenter's email. In that case I say drop blogger comments and go with a third party like HaloScan. I don't think the free versions provide comments via email, but they do give you the commenter's email address.

Not sure if I've helped you or confused you at this point. ack!

Blogger is a special case, it seems. I'm registered, but only use my registration to comment on my Secret Pal's blog, and also post on the Scarf Style Knitalong. It seems like it's hard to get the commenter's email address to respond that way.

With other services, though, an email response is great. When I have the time, I try to go to the commenter's blog and leave a comment, as well.

I'm new at this, so I'm glad you raised the issue. Thanks, Lori!
