So I was looking through my site referrals, and saw that someone had come through from a Google search. I clicked on it to see what they were looking up. Did you know that a search for "Socks and heels" (at least on the Spanish Google) brings up a bunch of porn sites, including "All Extreme Sex Stories - An Oriental Girl," "Jennifer Aniston nude lawsuit," "high end sex toys," "Foot fetish parties for real life foot worship," as well as other dirty things? Though, oddly enough I didn't see my site on that page...hmm....

In other (knitting related) news. I had a bad night last night. I was working on my tote bag with my Denise needles. Well, since working on that bag I've noticed the yarn isn't moving very smoothly over the cord. I have to stop every few stitches and push the knitting over. I've never had this problem with my other circulars. Well, last night as I was trying to push some yarn over the cord the cord snapped at the point where it meets the little piece at the end that goes into the hole at the end of the needle. I tried crazy gluing it together, but it wouldn't hold. I guess I'm going to have to replace that cord now (I kind of need that particular cord for this project). But, I'm wondering if I didn't get one of the sets with the "sticky" cords. I bought it off of Ebay, so it's quite possible it's one of the old sets from a few months ago that had bad cords. I didn't think I did because the cords don't really seem sticky to the touch. They also don't seem as smooth as the cords on my regular circulars either. So, I'm going to contact them and see what they think. Maybe it'll turn out I did have a bad batch, and I'll get them replaced. Otherwise, I'll just have to buy a new cord, and be careful what I knit on them. If that's the case I'll be really disappointed because I bought the set to keep from having to buy a million needles. If I have to go out and buy stronger, smoother needles for other sets then it's essentially become a waste of money. I'll keep you updated on what happens.

My Stitch n' Bitch is coming together nicely so far. I've got 15 people who are interested in joining at this point. If you live in the East Bay (across from San Francisco) and are interested in coming, there's always room for more. Our first meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday, July 30, at 7pm. Location is TBD, but email me (click on the email me link in the top table on the left) and I'll send you more information.
