Moving Day

Hey kids, the Phoenix was right -- I am saying goodbye to Blogger and moving over to WordPress. I've moved all my links over, including the ones that Blogger ate (which was pretty much the last straw on the camel's back that has been my experience with Blogger over the past year).

So change your links to include -- where you can comment on what I have to say all the damn time, no matter where you're blogging from.

To celebrate my new digs, I'm hosting a giveaway over there, with these beauties as the prize:

It's KnitPicks Sock Garden in Morning Glory. The yarn line and the colorway have been discontinued, and that makes me sad. What makes me happy is that I bought four skanks of it before it went away. I'm using two, and I'm putting the other two up for grabs.

Come by and leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about springtime knitting (or just "hello," I'm not picky). Do this by Tuesday (5/15) night at midnight (Central Time), and I'll choose a winner via random number generator.

Cheers guys!

Blogger Ate My Blog


Since Google took over Blogger the comment setup is requiring everyone to get a Blogger/Google account or be Anonymous. I am not a fan of requirements of any kind to be involved in my blog conversation (except the requirement that you be a real person and not a spambot), so I decided to install Haloscan. Of course, having the non-updated version of Blogger's template I couldn't install the darn thing until I upgraded to the fancy-schmancy version that some of you have and enjoy. So I upgraded.

Now my blog looks like poo, half my links are missing, and I'm grumpy about it.

And, in yarn-related grumpiness, my kitchen scale (similar to this one) tells me lies about the weight of my yarn when I wind it up:

It's my Fearless Fibers Kildare, and I am going to be making two different sized socks from it.
