Got It!

Yes! Thanks to Libby and jofrog, I now have a clearly visible "I Knit A Mile High" webring button. Now if I can just squeeze in time to add more things to my blog. And see if I can get my digital camera working ... Or at least find the connection for my scanner ...

And I think I've found a pattern that I want to use to make my first pair of mittens. It's a pattern from the Pattern-A-Day Knitting Calendar 2005. (Like I was really going to wait until 2005 to open it.) The pattern is called Shawa Mitten, and it's done on two circs.

Trial & Error

I finally got a Knit a Mile High button on my site, but I don't think the image shows up. The "help" section on this site leaves much to be desired in helping me! :(

Last night, I started a pair of socks in camo Bernat Hot Sox for my son. He's six and is really into either soldier or cowboy stuff right now. The pattern I'm using is just the Bernat socks leaflet that I picked up somewhere.

Still waiting for my next SOTM package to arrive. It's so exciting! Like Christmas every month, all year long.

Where to go from here ....

I love small town living. Don't get me wrong. But I would LOVE to be closer to a LYS and groups of knitters! I feel a great emptiness without this!

I'm trying to read some blogs and get ideas. (Sneeking into the sites when my boss is locked away in her office ... :) Any comments would be greatly appreciated! I've never done this before (blogging) and need all the help I can get!

Right now, I have several projects going. Almost finished with one SOTM sock in Opal from Fiber Nooks & Crannys. Just need to Kitchener the toe. Don't know if I'll start the next one right away, though. I've happily anticipating several other sock kits. Better wait to see which one needs my attention the most! :)

Also, I've been wanting to try my hand at some Fair Isle knitting. Hoping to start some gloves/mittens soon. Just need to find the right pattern and yarns.
I do my sock knitting on two circs, and would like to do my mittens/gloves the same. Any advice here would also be appreciated.

Well, off to read a few more blogs before boss catches me! :)

Today is the first day of the rest of my blog ....

Well, here I am. Though I've thought about it for some time, I am now actively pursuing a blogging lifestyle.
