One more day...

Don't be a slacker--tomorrow is the last day to enter my giveaway. Hint, hint...

I had fun posting to my blog from the Rockies game yesterday, using my iPhone, but it's much easier with a laptop. Still, technology sure has changed things. I know it's made me a better knitter, and it's  made me want to knit MORE. What it hasn't done is given me extra hours in the day. Somebody needs to work on that. 

The socks I took to the game are coming along nicely, but I'm having to knit faster so I don't run out of yarn. That's how it works, right? RIGHT?!?!? I seriously do not want to hunt down another skein of this yarn, although I would certainly have a use for the leftovers. I just want this pair done and off the needles. Can you say sock-burnout? But who am I kidding. I will always knit socks, as long as I can find victims recipients for them.

There's also one day left in my NaBloPoMo. It's been challenging at times, and I've pretty much ignored the "green" theme (unlike some bloggers), but I'm still glad I did it. I can think of a few blogs I used to enjoy reading but they slowly stopped posting. I'd hate to bug them--who knows the circumstances--but I can't help wondering if something happened or if they just lost interest or what. How would you gracefully end a blog? I don't foresee that being a problem here for a long time. But you never know. Life can be short; enter the giveaway while you still have time. How's that for a segue?

Giving a shout-out to The Daily Fiber. Girl, you quilt like nobody's business! Thank you a gazillion. 


  1. I totally knit faster when the yarn's running out. I also drive faster when the needle shifts down toward the E. Who knows, it might help.

    More importantly -- how are you going to celebrate 31 consecutive days of blogging?

  2. Count me in! I will volunteer being a sock victim (maybe in exchange for baked goods?).

  3. Do you notice when you knit faster you knit tighter? (and squeeze the needles?) It could just be me.

  4. i am right in the end zone of a yarn run-out and I've been knitting like the wind too!!! WTF? We are more alike, all of us, than we know! An entire nation of knitters who may be slightly whacked!
    Thank you for the shout-out. You are the BEST. And, like Marushka C. inquired ... 31 days of blogging deserves a celebration - what's on your agenda?


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
