My apologies to Kitty Kitty & Meowgirl for getting both their names mixed up with that tag. :) I've ammended that post.

Erin had asked what yarn I was using for Butterfly, I'm using Sirdar Silky Look in Champagne, which I dug out from my stash. :)

I have nothing much to add for now. I have so many things to share but no time to take pictures and sit down to organize my thoughts. I just felt guilty that I've been neglecting my blog.

Minisweater is completed, Butterfly doesn't flutter, it plods. And I've cast on for another project, one with simple st st so that I can knit that in the car. I'm not about to risk fumbling with Butterfly lace sts when one eye is looking at the road. I'm putting this down so I'll get myself moving to take photos soon to show. I don't think I'm too pleased with how my mini sweater looks. But I have no patience to frog right now.

I have had another 3 balls of Gedifra California which I suppose will have to resign itself into becoming another shrug. I had my eyes set on this other number. But it looked like minisweater. It is a variegated white grey color and I haven't found a pattern that speaks of a match. Any great ideas girls? I could always count on good suggestions from you ladies..:)

I'm being distracted by a myriad of things. My sewing for one, and other crafty endeavours for another. Mom has also set up something which I'm helping out with. Ever heard the phase there is not enough hours in a day? Yea, nowadays, I wish that the day has 36 hrs.

My yahoo got hacked into recently. So girls, I will no longer be using Yahoo. If anyone message you or email you with my ex-profile, please ignore.

Rant on Yahoo Skip if you don't wanna hear rant

Also, take note, that Yahoo sucks big time. Make sure ur firewall is up and that you log on securely because otherwise it is unsecure. Their support personels are also useless and don't give a hoot about their users.

I wrote 4 times to them requesting help. Each time I get an automated reply. In my 4th email to them, I pointed out to them that the hacker went in and changed my profile details, I can't verified my original profile, it's been changed. However, I can provided details that is not from my profile. Information that would be logged in their email server, like my IP or my timetable. All of which would be logged in their mail server and can't be hacked like my profile. I asked them, you are going to allow a hacker (who changed my profile data) to rummage through my emails because I can't verify my changed profile. I have sensitive emails inside. At least suspend or delete my account if I can provide matching details (Not from my yahoo profile) to their log. I don't see why they can't, especially if Hotmail staff can and will go that extra mile. They emailed another automated reply to me saying how they can't do anything because I can't match details with what is in my yahoo profile.

I sincerely hope the twerp of a hacker will get just dues in the end. And as for yahoo, they can go fly a kite for all I care. It'll be useless to do anything now, it's been 5 days. The hacker would have already rifed through all my mails and gotten what they want. My account is lost, with it, 10 years of data. I was with yahoo for 10 years and this is what I get in the end. I certainly won't be using them anymore, not if that is what they call support.

Knitting in the Car!! Your right, you don't want to knit lace stitches whilst driving, I'd also call you brave for knitting st st with one eye on the road.

As for Yahoo, too right dump 'em. What disgraceful behaviour.

Laura.Y said...

sweetpea :D I knit when I'm in a jam or traffic light when my car is not in motion. Then I have to keep my eye on the road to make sure I know when to put it aside and drive. I can't imagine actually knitting while the car is in motion. LOL. That's suicidal.

oh my goodness!!! i would be absolutely infuriated with yahoo about that whole situation!! (not to mention the anger against the hacker individual - what kind of SICK person is he/she to have done something like that?!) so sorry to hear about the yahoo fiasco. grrr. so far haven't heard any weird things from your ex-email though. fingers crossed that things are quiet and get resolved quickly!
many hugs ~ ruth =)

So I am not the only one knitting in the car? Like Laura.Y I knit while the car is not in motion ( unless I am in the passnger seat), of course. :D
Sorry to hear about your yahoo acoount. It's sad to loose so many precious data in it!

Hehe.. Don't worry about it. Our husbands at times confuse our names on our blog even after all this time.
