Search Engine Sunday: Episode One

The blog stats program I use has a useful little feature that tells me which search engines people are coming from and which search strings they use to find me. For example, in the past month my top five search strings have been:

I don’t think I can (or want to) help people looking for world cup nipples, but I might be able to help people looking for knitted amigurumi. So in the spirit of “you scratch my blog, I’ll scratch yours,” I’ve decided to start a series where I answer the questions people seem to be having when they reach my site.

So let’s get back to this month’s questions. Ignoring some of the more… nipplesque ones, here’s what the web has been looking for lately:

  • knitted Amigurumi
    Amigurumi is done with crochet as opposed to knitting. There are many sites out there that can provide amigurumi patterns for you, but the best way to make amigurumi is just to learn the process and then make it up yourself. You can also go to places like YesAsia and buy amigurumi books for a reasonable price.
  • ipod nano cozy
    I’ll be offering a pattern for one of these, so keep in touch!
  • DOUBLE POINTED NEEDLE CASE FOR KNITTING IN PROGRESS
    Okay, okay, calm down, stop yelling. Here.
  • yarn and wine store kingston on
    Sorry, we don’t have one of those. But if you want, you can bring some wine to a yarn store, just so long as you don’t try to hit on the sales clerks.
  • how to put markers on and off when knitting
    I didn’t get this at first, so it makes sense that people would be having this question. It’s actually quite easy. Stitch markers just slide onto your needle and sit between the stitches in your project. They aren’t looped into it or anything. To put markers on and off, simply put the needle through the hole in the marker and you’re done. When you get to a stitch marker in your knitting, simply knit all the stitches normally, and then slide the stitch marker from the left needle onto the right needle and keep knitting normally again.
  • What does pm mean in knitting?
    That means “pass marker,” which is what I described above; moving your stitch marker from one needle to the other.

From now on, every Sunday I’ll be focussing on one or two topics. If you’ve got a question you want answered, send me a message using this contact form.

And now my grand finale: for those of you searching for jacques villeneuve song lyrics and somehow finding my blog:

Accepterais-tu by Jacques Villeneuve

Je ne donnerai jamais assez
Pour mériter ce que tu m’apportes
Je ne rendrai jamais assez service
Je ne tiendrai jamais assez de portes

Je sais on n’avait pas toujours
Les quatre pieds sur terre
Mais avoue, que notre courte histoire
En aura déplacé de l’air

Non ne t’en va pas maintenant
Prends quelque temps pour y penser
Après on partira
Ce sera comme tu veux
Je ne te retiendrai pas

Mais avant de partir
Avant d’en finir

Accepterais-tu de m’épouser ?
Pour le souvenir pour le passé
Accepterais-tu de m’épouser ?

Je nous imaginais tellement
Ensemble jusqu’à la fin du monde
J’aurais dû profiter de chaque instant
J’aurais dû filmer chaque seconde

Mais je crois que je m’y étais habitué
Un peu avec le temps
Je l’avoue j’y ai pensé moi aussi
Un jour à foutre le camp
Non ne t’en va pas maintenant
Prends quelque temps pour y penser
Après on partira
Ce sera comme tu veux
Je ne te retiendrai pas

Mais avant de partir
Avant d’en finir

Accepterais-tu de m’épouser ?
Pour le souvenir pour le passé
Accepterais-tu de m’épouser ?

Ah on fera tout exactement comme tu le voulais
Ce sera parfait
Dans la chapelle au bout de l’île de St-Michel
Quand on passait devant
Est-ce que tu te rappelles ?

Pour le souvenir pour le passé
Accepterais-tu de m’épouser ?

Pour le souvenir pour le passé
Accepterais-tu de m’épouser ?

You’re welcome.

  3. [...] In this series, I post the most popular search strings for my blog (minus the ones looking for “uruguay porn”) and answer the questions people seem to have when they get to my blog. Just my way of giving back to Google, and all you folks at home. You can read the whole series on this page, or subscribe to the RSS feed. Last time, I talked about stitch markers and amigurumi, among other things. [...]
