Six years and counting

It's my blog-i-versary. It was actually a few days ago but I don't know exactly which day. So, I've always observed April one. Blogger just has me starting in March 2002. No date. Anyway, it's six years plus a bit.

I'm going knitting today. Going somewhere else to knit, somewhere other than home, is fun. Sorta makes it special. You have to decide what you're going to work on and make sure you have all the necessaries with you, especially the pattern, if you're using one, and enough fiber to keep you going.

I'm not sure what I'm going to take with me today. I've been pretty faithful to the entrelac scarf for over a week. I need something different today. My right arm, especially the elbow, is pretty sore. The sudden cold snap we've had isn't helping. So I need to find something that's lighter weight and doesn't require so much effort to get the stitches made. Six years ago this wouldn't have been a problem. There are any number of socks that could use some attention. And a couple of shawls. But I want something new. And in something that looks like spring.

Larry,

I'm happy you're still blogging - it's always a treat to read you. No pressure or anything, but don't ever stop! Some of us are counting on you!

I made the entralac scarf from Knitty and found it was much more fun than I thought it would be. Who knew?

Congrats on the 6 years Larry. Your blog was one of the very first few that I read on a regular basis. I think it is when you went on that knitting retreat and had photos of it, and I was amazed that someone actually loved knitting as much as I did. Hope to see lots more too.

I'll join the celebration. "Happy Blog-o-versary." I'm late to reading you and glad I found.

Perhaps I won't lurk as much during this new year.

Happy Blogiversary to you - and my goodness what beautiful springtime yarn.

I'm glad you're still out here, too -- and that yarn looks so lovely. Those are the colours I crave in January, when everything is white and grey and brown, I'll be interested to see what you do with it.

Congradulations! I love the colorway. Even if spring hasn't quite reached you that yarn would make me feel much more springy.
