Web Cool Guy's Knit Blog

Monday, May 19, 2008


If anyone should happen upon this blog which hasn't been updated in ages this is a note to let you know I'm not posting to this blog anymore. I have long since moved on from here and have moved to which is now my personal website / blog. I may or may not be in business of selling my handmade things when you get there but I will be starting a new store online although I'm really not sure when. I am currently knitting up a bunch of stuff and have plans to start making more hemp jewelry. The candles didn't quite work out because I still haven't figured out how to make good quality candles yet haha but I'm working on that. See you over at my new place.

Already Getting Candle Orders And Site Isn't Up Yet

I am totally thrilled right now. I haven't even gotten my candle shop opened on the web yet and I've already recieved an order for square pillar candles from my best friends co-worker out in San Francisco. Haha I don't even have a square pillar mold yet lol. Guess I'll be shopping ebay soon to get one.

Internet Connection Down

What a bummer! My DSL connection stopped working. The phone company thinks I may have a bad dsl modem. They are shipping it out on next day shipping so it will either get here tomorrow or friday. Unfortunately I'll be at work friday so I may end up having to arrange a pickup at the UPS office on monday. I'm am writing this post from Panera Bread. Thank God for free WI-FI when you need it huh.

I want you guys to know my website is coming along very well and I think you all will love it. Aside from my storefront there are going to be games, radio streams from you can click on on listen directly to with your winamp or other prefered player and there is also a live internet television stream provided by which you can watch on the front page. And I'll be transferring my live cam to the site as well. We are going to have lot's of fun over there.

Just bare with me for a little while until I get my internet connection working again at home. I should have the website ready to launch by the end of next week.

Moving On - New Domain Purchased

Recent events in my life have given me the motivation I needed to get off my ass and get my business going. Last night I purchased a domain for my website. It's a name I chose not only because it is catchy, cool, and fun... but also because it will remind me never to settle for whatever I can get in a relationship ever again.

See folks I told you I was gonna be fine :-)

The new domain isn't fully activated yet, but it should be by tomorrow hopefully. I'll post a link to the site once it's up and running.

For now I've got to get busy making a few changes to my sites template to fit with the domain name.

See you guys there soon.

Moving On - Goodbye Tracy!

Ok folks. As some of you have probably noticed I haven't been posting much to this blog over the past week. Some of you know why, and some of you don't. The thing is, I've had a major dissapointment in my life recently and I'm working on picking up the pieces and moving on with my life. I found out my partner, Trey was cheating on me and I kicked his sorry ass out of my crib. That's right folks, he and I were more than just partners in this little craft journey. I thought he and I were partners for life. I thought he had his act together but apparently he doesn't and I stooped to my lowest level of sanity thinking I had a good thing here with him. It's alright though, he's worse off than I am believe me. Don't ask for details.

There are going to be some major changes for me, and that means I may not be maintaining this blog as frequently as I normally do. I still plan on broadcasting the cam and look forward to chatting with all the friends I have made here thus far. If you have ordered something from me rest assured that I am still working on getting it completed and sent out to you. However there are a lot of things in my life that I need to focus on to get my life in order so it may just take me some time. Please bare with me on that.

Don't worry about me I am fine. Sure I'm madder than a fucking wet hen about it all, but you know what... you live and you learn and you take what you learn and use it to make yourself better. I won't share specific details but Trey is going to find himself running for a long, long time and he deserves whatever he gets from here on out for what he did to me.

Pay no attention to the profile still on this blog. I'll get around to changing it as soon as I can but know this. Trey will never be apart of my dream ever again!

Vanilla Scented Candles

This week I'm making vanilla scented jar candles. Two of them in clear glass jars, and two in frosted glass jars. These will use up all of the candle making supplies I currently have... So I guess that means I'll be shopping for wax and wicks soon.

I've finished four more of these and still planning on making a few more before I put the finishing touches on them.

Is A Guy Who Knit's Really That Strange? (strong language ahead hehe)

Don't know if I've mention it or not, but throughout this week I've been spending a lot of time on blogexplosion and blogmad... which if you don't already know are two great blog exchange services where you can get your blog noticed by people who might not ever find it... oh by the way to all you folks who have commented on this blog from either of those blog exchanges I say thanks for your support.

I know it may seem strange to many people of different walks of life out there to see a guy who is as much into crafting as I am and I didn't really realize just how "wierd" it may seem to some folks until I joined a chat room on blogmad a couple of days ago. My screen name on that site is "coolguysknit" and when I entered the chat room using that screen name I was greeted mostly as normally as anyone else would have been... but there was this one person... I'm not sure if it was a guy or girl... was asking me about the website I said I was putting together for our storefront. When I told him/her tha my room mate and I knit and do other crafts I wasn't even able to get to the part about telling about how we're opening our own business online selling the things we make before this person spouted out "Your gonna make a website about THAT!" It was like this person never heard of guys doing this sort of thing. Or maybe this person thought this was a gay thing or whatever. WHATEVER BIOTCH!

Anyway I'm not gonna rant and rave about it because that would just fucking be boring as hell right! Right!! What I do wanna say is that it's not a gay thing, not a straight thing. It's just two guys who happen to be room mates and enjoys crafting... maybe me being the biggest craftaholic... but whatever. We don't knit sweaters... that's too grandma'ish... we don't knit socks... let your mother do that for you! We do make some freaking awesome fashion accessories for all you girls out there who always say "Damn! I think a guy who knits is hot!" Well quit freaking saying it and buy something dammit lol. We're working for you. And for all you guys out there we make some fucking cool ass caps... and wait until you see the jewelry we got coming along...

Hey didn't I say I wasn't gonna rant and rave... oooops, my bad!

You know something you guys, I tried to get my roomie to join as an author on our blog but apparently he has declined the invitation... I don't know why... I mean he is supposed to be in this thing with me. Some partner huh lol.
