Of SPAM and other tidbits

I've been getting a LOT of spam comments lately - like a couple on each post, and I don't get tons of comments to start with, so it's kind of annoying. I don't get the point of this type of spamming - does anyone actually click on those links if the blog owner leaves them up?? Anyone else having spam annoyances?

I hoped to get a lot done this week - move right along on my jacket and cut out a knit dress for Easter. Unfortunately, I've been sick as a dog the past 4 days. Well, really only sick as a dog the first day, but not feeling so hot the past 3 either. I'm also having a little trouble getting used to my husband's work schedule this month. He has to work evenings and weekends, and while it's only for a month or two, it's just throwing me off in a big way. I think we get more quality time with him, actually, but as I said, it's just really different. I can tell you it's been wonderful having him home while I've been sick.

So, now that I'm feeling decent again, after the boys are in bed tonight, I WILL cut out that Easter dress. It took me a while to decide what to make for Easter in Scotland (yes, I am so lucky!). It'll be pretty cold, but I finally settled on McCalls 5752 figuring I can wear it with a cardigan and boots and still feel spring-y. I just made my second version of this shortened to a top, so I figured it's time to actually make the dress! I have some gorgeous deep purple rayon jersey that just feels like silk. The color doesn't exactly scream "spring" I'll admit, but again, I'll be in Scotland.

Yes, I started getting spam at the beginning of the new yr. First, it was comments like, "This is very interesting. I'll be sure to let my friends know. By Anonymous"

I didn't think much of it other than I thought was such a strange comment to leave on someone's knitting blog. Then, they got worse & very crude, so I have to monitor everything.
