I have spent the last week looking at blogs--knitting blogs specifically. I would say that I have not even put a dent the the knitting blog ring, but--WOW--what an ecclectic group all you bloggers are. Just in the 100 or so I have read; I've learned a lot about who's out there and who I seem to have things in common with. If I can ever figure out how to list links in my sidebar, I'll list some of my favorites.
As for my knitting, the baby-blanket-a-thon is going well(1.5 done/1.5 to go). Unfortunately, I thought I was further along on the second blanket than I actually am. I have to add 2 more pattern repeats than I thought. I have a pair of socks on needles and my 6th six sox sock on deck--who'd have thought it would be so hard to come up with what to put on the cuff of that sock :) My short sleeve hoodie is also coming along--I like working with cotton; I just dread the double duty of weaving in the ends!
Once my last package arrives, I'll post pictures of my recent knitting book acquisitions. I've definitely been doing some "retail therapy" lately. It seems that I will have more patterns than I'll ever be able to finish in this lifetime---I'll have to teach my daughter to knit and will them to her! LOL!
