Buttons, Buttons, I've got the Buttons!

Corny, yeah, but every time I manage to do something successfully with the blog template, I feel as if I've invented the wheel. I'm not usually dense, and have never had trouble understanding computer stuff, but HTML still has me confused. It's logic is still not penetrating the brain too well.

I have added the FLAK button, and will be participating in the 200-Socks that Amie started. This will be fun to follow, and since I'm always knitting socks anyway, won't be anything extra that I'm taking on.

No cable swatch yet for the FLAK, I went to the opera at the Met last night. Die Fledermaus, it was great, it was funny, and the music was comfortingly familiar, as Strauss always is. I have great memories of being a young violin student, sitting cross-legged on my bed with a book of Strauss waltzes propped up against the headboard, playing them for hours. (probably to the annoyance of the rest of the household, especially in the early days)

Hmm - maybe some Strauss is a good way to use the Borders coupon that I have. And maybe the library has a copy of Die Fledermaus that I can load onto my iPod.
