A Fail

I've put off writing too long. Now I have multiple topics to mull over.

Newsy News

First, I'm headed back Cortez, Land of the Good JuJu. My friend is dealing with chemo as well as can be expected. She's the bravest person I've ever known. She won't be able to come out with us, but we'll stop by to say hello.

Embarrassment

Have you ever found yourself needing to vent? I do, often, and will preface it for my listener, typically my daughter or husband, with "This is venting..." That way they know their role is to just listen. I don't need help or even input, but just need to purge.  I did that a couple weeks ago here and planned on just leaving it in the oblivion of "draft." Only it published. 



I suppose it wasn't all that bad. I didn't say anything horrible but I was just so WHINEY

I took it down as soon as I noticed but AAACCCKKKKK!!!

Now *that* story wasn't about fiber but it's related to this one which is...
I love the möbius strip. It was brought up in discussion via forums about a favorite podcast of mine, The Unraveling Podcast. I first learned how to construct it in knitting from Cat Bordhi and it was  brilliant.  Then I heard that Elizabeth Zimmermann also had a möbius scarf pattern. I made the mistake of not reading it and assuming it was a scarf with a twist. I was wrong. 

I was wrong in front of the people I connect with the most. 

OF COURSE, Elizabeth Zimmermann knew what a möbius strip was and would not misuse the term. She's absolutely brilliant. 

And, now, I feel like an idiot.
