      It seems some of you still have some issues with working out what is and is not acceptable. So I'm going to make it simple for you.

      If you have a problem with another user (including me) your first port of call would be me, then if you get no joy from that, you can, if you so wish, take it further. I will even recommend folk who will deal with it promptly for you if that is your choice.

      You do not under any circumstances use these forums as a way to belittle and insult people. You can cite the "I was just joking thing" but when you do it to users who are either new or continually abused then it won't wash.

      You can drag a thread a little off topic, I'm not going to rip your hearts out or anything for that, but at least make attempts to tie it in with the topic and drag it back onto topic sooner rather than later. You have a BAR in here, use that if you want to talk crap to each other.

      I will say thank you to those of you who have really made an effort so far to keep things on track and be nice to people.

      I would also like to remind you that if I warn you that I will do so and so if you do whatever, then I will do it. I don't make idle threats. So don't get pissy if I ban you after I've said I would.

      The first yarn (the first attempt at spinning was the white, the second the brown. You can already see the improvement even between those two.):

      The third go on the wheel (and still on the spindle on the wheel too):

      And the current pair of socks.

      No pictures of Luna yet (that's the wheel. They gotta have a name!)

      Soooo

      I just got a spinning wheel.

      And last weekend I went out and picked nettles and made some wool yellow with it. Probably woulda been quicker and less stingy to pee on it, but that really didn't appeal.

      I'll do something better in another two months, mkay. smiley8.gif

    • Time off, and new hobbies

      Hey guys!

      After taking a few weeks off to relax, get un-sick and generally do naff all, I'm back! Be assured that the usual photographs and babble about motorsport will commence shortly.

      I also started a new hobbie over christmas

      (Work in progress)

      2329026521_05e46d1399.jpg
      (Single sock of a yet uncompleted pair)

      SOCKS!!!!

      They are sooo comfy! I have three pairs finished, an almost finished pair for my Mum, one sock of a pair for me (above), and the work in progress above. I know that at least Jo does some knitting, so Jo, if you haven't already, you need to try knitting socks. It's the most relaxing and rewarding way to chill in front of the tv or whereever.


      *EDIT for clarification*
      I've been knitting for years, just never anything sock shaped :)

      Regular readers (or is that viewers, with all these pictures?) of my journal may recall that I did a series of photos of a project that work completed recently. It was the refurbishment of a Georgian Theatre. A few pictures are below, there are more here.

      These colourfully dressed fellows had a full band playing behind them and were clearly well practiced in whatever it was they were doing (of which I have no idea). The chappy with the red and green outfit made one of his "sword" lunges right at me, whilst chuckling to himself. Guess you have to have a good sense of humour to dress up like that and dance around the main square in Brussels.

      I'm a tv fiend the last six months, but I've gotten one of them magical dvr boxes to avoid commercials. Although that means all my commercial references are probably about 5 years old. I can't wait for a few decades from now when I'm still trying to be witty with thirty year old commercial allusions.
