A Little of This and a Little of That

A little of this or a little of that: You can get with this or you can get with that okay so maybe they weren't thinking of knitting when they made this video even though the band is Black Sheep.

So today have a little of this and that to share, a little knitting and a little techie stuff too.

It is cold and rainy here, there was even snow in the area, though I haven't seen any and it is 35 degrees so just freezing rain, little happy ice pellets bouncing around out there. yuk. But the silver lining to all those clouds out there is that it is a perfect day for knitting, blogging, fantasy sports and games, right?

I'm making progress on the KAL sweater vest, although I believe I am lagging behind the rest of the knitters, but I have the back complete and am working on the front. The back is in stockinette stitch the front is in a traveling vine stitch. A band of ribbing will be added to the neck and sleeves, when all is done.

There is also a plain vanilla toe up sock in progress.



On to techie stuff: Now many of us got happy with the Angry Birds game and it seems to have lost some of it's exciting, but before you delete from you phone or iPad, they came out with updates in the past week to add levels, so take heart not all is lost. For the Angry Birds HD, it added level 14 within chapter 5 of the saga. It isn't the most challenging level, but it is fun. And for Angry Birds Seasons lovers, a St. Paddy's day level was added. (Added a little sooner). The latest game to knock Angry Birds out of this top download spot is Tiny Wings. It is a cute game, adorable little bird with you guessed it...tiny wings, so he needs your help to fly. While it lacks the excitements and satisfaction of destroying things you get from Angry Birds, it can help pass the time if your stuck in line somewhere. And of course, Angry Birds HD is free for Android phone users. Speaking of Android phones, if your a Trekki, the Tricorder  app is a must. Lots of fun with a GPS function, and other fun features, like acoustic and magnetic readouts. Just plain fun. There is a Captains Log app for the iPhone4, that allows social networking of your log as well as a private log.

Once last image before I close for today.

Recent Super Moon, color me unimpressed. I've seen more impressive Harvest Moons. I guess with all the hype I expected more. Still pretty but not "super".
