I'm finally a blogger!!!



I have been thinking about blogging for a couple of years now just to have folks with whom I can share my love and passion for fibers and knitting. I believe my family and friends get a little tired of hearing what project I am working on and what new yarn I have acquired. I have just finished my first knit from your stash project- some new leg warmers. Now that I teach I find that I wear more skirts and the leg warmers make this possible in vermont winter. These are made with 44 stitches in Manos del Uruguay yarn.

I am trying to finish up a hat/scarf set that my mother requested and bought the yarn for. This is a big deal because she is not into any animal fibers. It is a soft alpaca in pastel green and blues that we got together at the VA sheep and wool festival. The colors are not as nice in the photo as they are in real life. I am hoping to get better at all of this over time.

Well, the picture is up at the top. I don't know yet how to put it in the right place. I just cast on the second sock for my first month's gift project. I am a little behind but more than half way! Here goes the posting. Thanks for reading!

You can put your text in between photos - just look where the coding for the photo begins and ends with the <> brackets (blogger may not let me do this in comments. When you see the open bracket, you can start typing ahead of it to put text on top, if you put your text after the closing bracket, it will show up beside or below. Hard "enter" will give you a line between photos.
Hope this helps! Enjoy blogging, it's lots of fun...

nice blog .. I am a new blogger too. Its fun eh? I started to get myself motivated to start producing things again, instead of just collecting yarn! LOL! The leg warmers are really pretty, and I like the alpaca set for your mom ... I haven't made anything out of alpaca yet (looking for something divine! - that saet is very lovely!)
