Chuckle of the day: A google search for "squeezing balls" turns up Knitting the Blues (this post) on the third page! Does this send me into peels of laughter every time I think of the surprised look on that searcher's face when this blog was clicked on? Hey-don't let your imaginations run too wild! I wonder, do balls of wool and mohair stimulate this person as they do the knit bloggers and readers out there? Okay, I'm thinking web-ring here, "Knitty Porn" maybe?. Or possibly a ball squeeze-along (hee hee)....... Any joiners?
Do You Need A Hint?
Thanks to the brave knitters who sent answers to my knitting brain teaser, but we have no correct answers as of yet. Annie, mbd, and Alison started out on the same track I did (great minds.....?). I found out how wrong I was there after grafting the whole thing! UGH! (I'll be posting the progress soon-it is a FO, off and delivered!) Chelsea-your answer is moving in the right direction, take another look and I believe you will have it! A hint to spur you all along: I am grafting (or Kitchenering) from live stitches. If you want to keep your guess a secret, you can email it to me privately. Come on everybody! Take a guess! Make my first blog contest a success!
A big thanks for the nice comments and emails on Cookie! I am sure I haven't been able to respond to everyone, but please know that I appreciate all of you, and rest assured, I spend much too much time reading all of your blogs! If you haven't started one, what are you waiting for? We are breathless with anticipation! Go! Do it now!
Quick update: Check out Abigail's blog. She has linked in her most recent post to her wallpaper illustrations. She changes them monthly, but there is always one with a knitting theme. This month's is so pretty and so blue! Go and get one!
