So about that Blogger thing....

Yeah, well, I'm not loving it here. I'm happy to have a g-mail account, and perhaps the Google account will make commenting on other folks' pages better. But, I can't make "static pages", just blog posts here. And there's not a lot of customizability (that is so not a word, I know it). Also, I'm missing my lj-like threads for comments (though thanks to those of you who gave me a wave, and a giggle: "kool aid - for dying", tee hee).

So anyway, making a switch, I'm moving over to WordPress: Pretty much the same thing, but hopefully it will allow me to add more content in a better fashion, while still allowing me to live there rent-free. Maybe someday I'll stop being such a cheapskate and get my own domain, but that remains to be seen. For now, come visit me at WordPress, or back at the old LiveJounal if you really just want to read my rambles without the knitspeak.

I admit it, I cracked.

Yep, I cracked. I wanted a knitblog too. Thus, this!

This blog will be where I (primarily) talk about knitting. It's mainly so that I can continue to read other folks' knitblogs and not feel like some kind creepy stalker when I post comments "anonymously" (i.e. blogless, and therefore without identity). Also so that I can stop boring my LiveJournal friends with my ramblings about knitting.

Now I know that the world needs another knitblog like a yarn stash needs a moth infestation, but still, perhaps in time I can elevate this blog from the disjointed thoughts of the craft-compulsive to something useful, like how-tos, or fun, like free patterns. For now, though, it's the ramblings and rantings of a woman with too much free time at work and not enough knitting time at home.
