About tingledfangers

Some of us are just blonder than others

I’ve been feeling a need to be part of the online community in a format other than Facebook, so that I can chatter aimlessly and clog up the airwaves. It’s true that when I type in a hurry, I do get my tingers in a fangle. I do it when I’m knitting and sewing, too, which is why I make mistakes. That’s my story. You want to argue the point with me? I’m blonde. I’ll probably cry. Then again, I’m a contrary sort, so I might just argue back. You’ve been warned.

In fairness, I should describe my cast of characters somewhat. There’s Dr B, my retired composer/academic husband who’s a mad-keen, long-distance cyclist. There’s Boy, our teenage son who also cycles but is more a rower. There are Eldest Son and Middle Son from Dr B’s first marriage and then there are various aunts and cousins and nieces and nephews and a couple of grandchildren. For their sakes, I protect them by referring to them merely as aunts and so on.

Photos, when available, will usually be my own. Therefore if you like them and want to use them, unlikely though that seems, please link back to this site.

Edited 7/4/12: After months of computer problems, things are slowly improving. I am likely to start going back to older posts and fixing links and tags and the like (and perhaps adding a few of those without substantially changing the original post) as well as perhaps adding some photos, though they remain problematic.

1/1/13: Happy New Year. It’s been brought to my attention that there’s no contact email address on here. Mea culpa. If you’d like to email me privately, you can do so at felixsewist AT gmail DOT com

    Hello, thank you for visiting and deciding to follow. It seems we have quite a lot in common, with the knitting, the sewing and the inability to type. Thank goodness for the spell checkers! I’ll be following your musings with interest too. 🙂

      It’s mostly when I’m at home that my typing is so terrible; I actually work as a transcriptionist, so, you know, horses for courses and all that

    I have had a lovely half hour or so reading your knitting stories. I am a ‘reformed’ knitter but I still yearn (yarn?) for it. I now paint most of the time. some of my joints didn’t like lots of knitting as much as I did. Hope to get back to it but enjoyed it vicariously through your posts tonight! Thanks.

    Thank you Felicity Tingledfangers for dropping by my blog. You’re giving me ideas of how to torture Himself with talk of the intricacies of knitting needles and yarn. All this is in the interest of ‘balance’ as you say. What do I know about SCUBA diving and rugby? Actually, it’s quite a lot now … even when I’m not actively listening some of it goes in. Darn! But I wouldn’t give away the secrets of the sisterhood by telling anyone that publicly. 🙂

      That’s the idea. 😉 We should absorb what we need for our self-defence but never let it be said that we’ve learnt anything! (I have become quite knowledgeable about rowing since YoungB took it up as a sport but that’s about the limit of my enthusiasm.)
