Thanks to Leslie!!


Thanks to Leslie, I have found Bloglines. I know that I am a bit behind, since I have seen their icon on many blogs - but what a fun little thing. As soon as it is all set, there will be less flipping time and more knitting time, yipee!!

Ever since I saw knitty yesterday, all I can think of is the dashing wrist warmers. While I know I need to make them, I have to root through my stash tonight and see what will work. This yarn diet is rough - okay, really its not - but its so much easier to just go to my LYS and purchase with out thinking.

And there is knitting here - the second round of my hush, hush dress is 20 rows into the 100 decreasing rows - if I would quit knitting other things, it would probably go faster. Although, I am really happy with the progress. Then there's happy green knucks. And a couple of baby hats to work on while I run errands...

Oh, and I saw this bookworm thing on roxtarchic's blog - it looked fun and wasted the last few minutes of my work day ;-). So here it goes....

i would forget about everyones blog if it wasn't for my bloglines!!!!! i love it!

Lana said...

Can't wait to see "Hush" finished. I want to knit it for myself eventually.

Jana said...

Bloglines it's a slippery slope. I hit 100 feeds in no time. But hey, at least now I'm reading them more efficiently and that's what's important! I love the knucks that you've made, I like them a lot out of the non-tweedy yarn with no embroidery. They look very classy! And the colors that you've picked are beautiful!

said...

I *heart* bloglines. Seriously. Hush is so beautiful, let's hope this go round is better.

Jodi said...

The dress is looking great! I really need to get into the whole bloglines thing, too.
