PSA: 
If you add me to your circles without giving me the courtesy of a brief "hello" post. When your profile is essentially blank (and doubly so if you're a bluehead). When all you post is re-shares, memes, "inspirational" quotes, or commercial content. When your posts are all in a language I can't read. I will block you, and possibly report you for spamming.

This message brought to you by a somewhat grumpy Hugh who's spent his valuable coffee and social media time this morning, dealing with the massive accumulation of people who've circled him recently an with whom he has nothing in common.

Edited to add: This goes double if your profile pic appears to present you as an under age female. I'm 64. I have no interest in girls (or boys come to that) young enough to be my grandchildren.

Sometimes you just can't pass up a used Disco II

I've owned the LR3 since March 2010. It's a 2006. The DII (it's a 2001) showed up at Jeff White's in Framingham MA about a year ago in need of "work". I told Jeff that when it was ready, I'd like to buy it. If the price was right. Well, the price was right, but the title had disappeared. It eventually resurfaced and I picked it up on July 7.

It's going to be mostly an off-roader, and still needs a few things doing to it (new tires for one). Jeff's crew have been calling it the Black Widow. I think I might buy it some artwork...

HandSock!!

Thumb gusset finished, tomorrow I'll finish the rest of the hand part, I hope, then deal with the thumb.

I might end up giving these away because they're a little tight. But I might keep them, tight or not, because I love the way they look.

I'll almost certainly make another pair, but with more contrast between the 2 colours. Probably one plain and one variegated.

Hand sock progress.

This was yesterday, in natural light which acutally lets the pattern show up. In artificial light the browns and blues all end up the same colour. I've done a bunch more since then -- I'm 1/2 way up the thumb gusset.

It was cold today. But it could have been much worse. This was 5 years ago

Colourwork progress. This will be a fingerless mitt when it grows up. What you're seeing is the cuff. I've just started the argyle pattern that covers the back of the hand, the vertical stripe pattern continues up the palm.

These have been dubbed "hand socks" as I don't actually have a proper sock on the needles and I've been told that is not allowed. It is actually sock yarn on sock needles

So this happened when I stopped at the Pokemon Gym by the library on the way home this evening.

Only 500,000 to level 31... piece of cake...
