Are you really you?

Dear Nikki,

I just got back from a Guide meeting where we had someone from the local school board to talk about internet safety. He started out by making a couple of interesting points about the word safety: 1 - kids turn off when they hear it, because they hear so much about it, and 2 - it means different things to different people, and so context is critical. Then he spent the next hour or so freaking me out about the internet. He made another very interesting point though - basically that if you gossip about someone online or express an inner feeling, be it by email or in a chat or a text message or anything, you don't know who is reading it on the other end. The person you're gossiping about could be in the room at the receiving end and this could have negative consequences for you!

Anyhow, other than that things aren't too exciting around here. Ice fishing "On the river Saskatchewan"* sounds awesome, even if you didn't catch anything! I am curious to hear more about the northern medicine stuff; feel free to rant. Do you spend all your time in one spot or are you travelling round a bit experiencing different things?

The bib turned out much better on the smaller needles. In fact, I enjoyed knitting a boring rectangle with no shaping so much that I started work on the baby genius burp cloth from the same book. I'm not sure what I think about it yet...

It's a bit bright, eh? I am, however, liking it more the more I knit. I'm not really sure if it's wide enough to be a burp cloth. It's about 8" wide unstretched. What do you think?

Anyhow, I have an early class tomorrow, so I'd better go get some sleep. I'll post again soon and I look forward to hearing your wedding ideas!


* Of course I can!

p.s. I don't know what's going on with the photos... I'm having a hard time with them. I'll try to fix them later!
