since my knitting isn't proceeding at any sort of measureable pace, i thought i'd chat about some other topics for the time being. Starting with something I saw yesterday that just made me say, "right on!".
Amazon is debuting Frustration-free Packaging for some of the toys and electronics it sells. This is a pet peave of mine, I absolutely hate all the boxes and plastic and ties that toys come with. I hate clamshells. hate, hate, hate that it should take so long to get into an item that you've just purchased and it's such a waste.
This will definitely be an area of the site that I will keep my eye on as I consider holiday toys and what now. If I can, I'll definitely support this initiative with my $$.
