Whenever I visit a friend's house for the first time, I try to bring a little something that says "thanks for having me over, friend" to show my appreciation.
In the blog world, the comments we leave are our gifts that say thanks for entertaining me and allowing me to share a bit of your world!
Now I won't get off on
a rant about how sad it makes me that I get 300 visitors some days and *only* six comments because I can only speak for myself. I REALLY try to leave a comment on every blog I visit over the course of a week however AOL has other ideas! Haloscan, Typepad, even Blogger wont let me comment on some blogs so this is my way of saying a general "thanks for having me, I love reading your blog and would comment if I could!" to all the truly wonderful bloggers out there who enrich my life in so many ways! much of
Now would it KILL ya to comment? :)
On to the knitting content.....the pickin's are pretty slim as far as interesting pics go cause......
My Diamond Fantasy Shawl looks the same. I'm on pattern repeat 8 of 10 but the rows are loooong now so progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry.
My Carnival Afghan medallions look the same. I have 18 medallions now but I've decided I need 100 because I want to cover my queen size bed!! I'm gonna be making those medallions for quite a while, good thing I'm loving the crochet! But again, once you've seen a medallion, you've seen em all.
I have made pic worthy progress on the Embossed Leaves socks, see?
I actually think this may be my favorite sock EVER!! The pattern is well written and easy to memorize, goes really fast, looks super sharp and this koigu is just so delicious! The color is so hard to capture...it's got rust, apricot, gold, olive green and it makes me happy just to look at it! I've actually already turned the heel of the second sock so I'll have a finished pair very soon altho I do plan to make these beautiful socks again!
I've also completed some blue squares to Comfort Jef because Christine is such a good sister and she's hard at work making a beautiful blue afghan for her brother Jef. Pumpkin sends his seal of approval and lots of kitty comfort Jef!
