If you don’t have a blog that’s hosted on your own domain, please disregard this post and come back later (I have some good knitting-related posts planned).
If you do have a blog that’s hosted on your own domain and you have opinions on your webhosting company, please share them with me! Especially [...]
Congratulations to contest winners Kate, Jen, and Madge! Kate’s guess of $200 came closest to my $188.36 total, and Jen’s entry received the highest random number in the Google spreadsheet I used to keep track of the entries. Madge was in the lead with $201 from day one all the way until Kate’s [...]
Don’t forget – you still have 24 hours to enter the contest! Entries must be submitted by noon (12:00pm PDT) on Saturday, May 26.
You could win some Koigu, Lorna’s Laces, Cherry Tree Hill, or Malabrigo, as well as handmade stitch markers and buttons! And since there’s also a random winner, you have a [...]
It’s been nearly three weeks since my last post, and with upcoming travel it’ll probably be at least another two weeks before my next real one. I believe I’m officially on hiatus.
A few quick photo-less updates:

I’ve upgraded to WordPress 1.5.2. I still need to figure out this Theme thing to create a better page design (ever since I got my Mac back in January I’ve been unhappy about how my blog displays), but I think everything is working as it should. Please let me know if you notice [...]
Reading Jenifer’s blogiversary post today reminded me to check my archives for the exact day in August when I started knitblogging. It was August 16 – today is my blogiversary!
Wow, looking back at pictures of my coffee table from that month makes me really want to clean out all the junk that’s on/in/around it. [...]
I just upgraded to WordPress 1.5, and I *think* everything is working ok (except for this big messy jumble of letters at the top of my WordPress screen, but I’m the only one who has to see that). If you notice that something is off, please let me know!
I feel like it’s been ages [...]

Speaking of comments, I’ve realized I really enjoy getting them (minus the spam, of course). I’ve never been much of a commenter on other people’s sites, always thinking that they wouldn’t care about a [...]
