So I am trying to figure out this whole blog thing. I understand most of it- except for responding to comments. Most of the comments come from people I know in "real" life and I try to respond to them yet I can't quite figure it out. I write a response but when I send it it bounces back. I have checked all my settings and can't figure out what needs to be changed. It is probably labeled something obvious like"replying to comments" or "Annie - this is how you respond to comments on your blog." Anyway I will work on that.
Back to knitting.
I just ordered some blue lace weight yarn for a feather and fan circular shawl from Schoolhouse Press. I can't wait! My bedroom has all blue bedding so last night I realized that I could use the shawl as a throw on the bed when it was not in use and it would not just sit unused. I can't justify making something I will never use. Now I keep thinking about reading in bed and wrapping up in my beautiful blue shawl. I probably won't finish it until next winter but it will be worth it.
I promise to figure out more of this posting pictures thing and not just ramblings.
Peace and Yarn,

Sweet. I just found the missing size Addi turbo 4in double pointed needle set that I lost a few months ago. I was digging down the side of my comfy knitting chair looking for a dropped coilless safety pin when I found the needles. Again Sweet! I never did find the pin though...Oh well I will find that in a few months.
Now I am free to cast on another pair of socks. Maybe a pair the Anastasia's Socks that Jennifer is knitting? Sorry but that is as close to a link that I know how to do.
Peace and Yarn,

Happy Halloween

I know the photos are on their sides but at least I got them uploaded. Good thing the kids are cute enough to go to all the effort of bending your neck to see them.

So it is two weeks into November and I am finally posting pictures -Oh well. This year the boys went as The Fox and The Hound.

Q told me that E told him that he wanted to be Copper (hound). E is one and a half years old. I guess they communicate in ways I wouldn't understand. I made the ears and tails out of old (store bought of course) sweaters that I had in my fabric stash and some fluffy white fabric. Q wondered if his costume was scary and David replied, "Yes, if your are a chicken or bunny." That was good enough for him.

Now if only I could get the photo to not be sideways.....Jen?
