An Explanation and a Shrug

There are good parts and bad parts to walking to work. Good points: exercise, no worries about parking, nice 20 minutes to think every morning and afternoon. Bad points: what works clothing-wise at work isn't so great to walk in (e.g. heels, long-sleeved shirts in the summer), carrying stuff 20 minutes each way. So I decided to leave my laptop at work most nights. It's been less traumatic to break my internet addiction than I thought that it would be. (I made up a list of internet rules at work; we don't have filters or blocked sites -- at least not any that I visit -- but I don't let myself look at my Google Reader or Ravelry or Craftster or any of the blogs/comics sites that I waste time on at home. I do, however, keep all 4 email accounts visible most of the day...so I guess that I am still internet-addicted. Oh, and I'm allowed to look at NYT and CNN and anything else that comes up on the thingy at the top of my GMail. So yeah...still internet-addicted.) So the point of that, tangential though it may be, is that I'm not going to be blogging very frequently.

But yeah. Here's a shrug that I made, based on Tubey. I knit it with Lion Brand Microspun that had been in my stash so long that I can't even remember why I originally bought it. I made 3/4 length sleeves, with no bell, and just a regular knit BO. I did a 2 stitch garter edging along one edge of the back, hoping that it would be enough to keep the stockinette from curling along the top. No such luck, so I flipped it upside down -- the top part is now plain stockinette, and it does curl, but it actually makes a really warm-and-comfy-neck edge. I crocheted along the now-bottom edge to minimize the curling. I did a row of crochet slip stitches and then did a shell edging based on one that I saw in SnB Crochet: *sc in first garter ridge, skip a garter ridge, 5 dc in next garter ridge, skip a garter ridge. Rep from * until end. The shrug is surprisingly warm; I haven't actually worn it at work yet but I imagine that it will get a lot of use.

And a close-up of the edging. Apologies for both shots -- it's surprisingly difficult to photograph a shrug.

I like that shell edging. It gives the back of your shrug a pretty, finished look. The stickinette curl is one of the cruel tricks of knitting, I think.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
