If You’re In the Hamptons and Your Photo Skillz Need A Boost
July 6, 2011
Thank goodness for Twitter and Words With Friends, or I’d start to think the both of us had disappeared from the face of the Interwebs.
Words With Friends? I have concluded that it’s how the terrorists are going to win, while America stares at its smartphones trying to make a word out of 7 consonants and a badly placed E. And if not the terrorists, it’s how some of our most favorite knitting buddies (hello, Lauren? Amy Singer Not That Amy Singer? pdxknitterati? Jessica R-K?) I’m talking about all of yas) are going to win, because they are crushing me like an ugly June bug in Words With Friends. Me and my so-called big vocabulary. Which, as it turns out, is not that strong in the words beginning in Q or wedging into tight spaces along the edges of the board. For the sake of my morale, I am considering it a personal victory if I lose by less than 100 to some of these mad mavenettes.
Anyway, I am just checking in because I have some exciting news for disorganized people of Long Island. There are still a few last-minute spaces available for Gale Zucker’s fabulous photography workshop in Southampton this Saturday, July 9! All the deets are HERE. But the jist is that if you send Gale an email, you can walk into this thing on Saturday and we’ll greet you with open apertures, and a gin and tonic.
I’ll be there, and some fabulously colorful knitters will be there, and — I’m not sure if this is an enticement or anti-enticement, but it’s a fact — Olive will be there.
Expect my photos to be a lot better starting on Sunday.
Hope everyone is having a happy summer so far, knitting their heads off in breaks from Words With Friends. I’ve been doing a lot of airplane knitting and some of it, frankly, is not working out. Mr. Noro has fooled me with a colorway of Aya that knits up totally different than it looked in the skein. But it’s a nice ride on the Fugmobile. I’m not complaining. I’m just SAYING. (And if I give you this shawl for your birthday, it’s your favorite colorway EVER, OK?)
