Happy birthday to greylistening, gothwalk, and puppermaker40!

State of the 'Song
Actually slept through the night last night! I know, this is only supposed to be an accomplishment if you're an infant. Hush.

Morgan Update!
liminalia says "Mo was spotted by a couple different people in Murphysboro IL tonight headed for the gathering near Harrisburg!! Please keep looking near there! She is with 2 guys, Tim and Josh. Tim has a tear tattoo and a white supremacist gang tat on his arm. They are probably hitching. Mo is using the alias Valia O'Donnell.

CALL POLICE. Then call me 630-508-0112!"

Thank you so much for passing the word like you've been doing. Also, she's traveling within the gutterpunk community, so if you know anyone in that community, make sure they know!

Knitting/DPNs/Magic Loop
So. Can anyone teach me Magic Loop? Because obviously it would be nice to not have to buy DPNs. :) If you're on Ravelry, you can check out my out-of-control queue to see what I need the DPNs/Magic Loop for, so if Magic Loop doesn't look feasible anyway, nudge me?

I Have No Link Soup
So roll your own!

Daily Science
Researchers hear puzzling new physics from graphene quartet's quantum harmonies.

Plans
Another jam-packed workday, then rather a lot to do at home, and I hope for a nap. If I don't do a StrowlerCon post today, poke me!

I can teach you magic loop and/or two-circs, which I VASTLY prefer. But I can show you both to see which works better for you.

Take Emily up on this for certain, Shadesong, but so you know what this looks like, here's a YouTube video. It really is that simple.

(The bit about needing an equal number of stitches on each needle isn't strictly true if you need a few extra on one side to finish out a small pattern repeat, but it's preferable.)

Awesome! When might be good?

Maybe Sunday?

I have a party to go to at 3, but before that is good. :)

Ok, we're picking up Cat from the airport here in a bit. I want to see what her plans are, and then I'll get back to you tomorrowish?

Have you seen any articles about the recent study on organics, and how - at least in terms of organic strawberries (vs. conventional) - they are in fact better for you, better for the soil/environment, and taste better? I concur that they taste better. I also contend that they smell better too.

I just wanted to tell you I now have enough in the bank to cover an MRI, and whatever does not go towards and MRI is earmarked for the resulting treatment.

Thank you so much. Your post was a big part of this.

Yaaay! So glad I could help. <3 She's a beautiful kitty, and it's clear how much you love her. I remember when Max was sick in 2007 and I needed to raise $1,500 for his treatment in a hurry...

I have never bothered to use DPNs. I use m-l for all in-the-round knitting and learned how from the videos here:

I was going to ask you what your handle is on Ravelry. Then I just searched for Shadesong, and there you are! :)
