  • A little teaser for you!

    A few weeks back I won a contest on Leah’s blog, and the prize was a skein of her handspun!

    Leah's Handspun

    Isn’t it beautiful? I love the colors, and I’ve picked out the pattern I’m going to make: the Flame Chevron Scarf. I’m so excited, but I’m trying to wait a little bit because right now I have too many projects on the needles!

    Leah was also a participant (with A and S) in a little knitting photoshoot on the LSU Campus last week. The three of them had FOs that needed pictures for their Ravelry pages, and we all have the same lunch hour free, so we decided to meet in the quad and take pictures. It was so much fun, and some of the pictures turned out really cute. Some of my favorites:

    S's Hat

    And S’s Hat/Beret.

    So why did I call this post a teaser? Because I have lots more pictures of their beautiful FOs to share, and I’ll be posting them soon on the new location of this blog:


    For various reasons, I’m switching away from Xanga to Blogger, and I hope you’ll follow me over there. (The new RSS feed is here if you want to update your aggregator/reader of choice.) I’ll still keep this site, of course, and all my entries will remain here, but there are a lot more options at Blogger, especially since Xanga has discontinued support for some Java codes I really like, like Ravelry Progress Bars, which are important so that I have some semblance of accountability for all those WIPs! ;)

    I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and getting lots of knitting time! =)

  • Nice yarn – it’s going to look great in that scarf you picked.

    I don’t blame you for quitting xanga. When you think about how long this site has been running, it’s so stupid that it’s not easier to use and isn’t more customizable. Looking forward to your new blog :)

  • @eretzisraelit - 

    Thanks! Yeah, I spent a lot of time looking for the perfect pattern, and even got the ok from Leah before I decided on it for good. ;) Xanga is dear to my heart, and there are some things I really like about it, but you’re right – for as long as it’s been around, it ought to be better. I still feel like I’m breaking up with an SO (though I never dumped a guy because he didn’t support Java, haha!) so it’s kind of sad, but at least I have Life so I can keep everything here forever, still comment and reply to comments, etc. =)

  • Awww, we’re going to miss you here. I’ve already added your new blog to my bloglines and it looks like I’m your first bloglines subscriber! Anyway, I’ll keep reading your blog to see how smooth the transition is because I’m about ready to make the jump, too.  From what you’ve mentioned so far,  we aren’t able to export our xanga content, right? 

    I never had a high readership anyway but lately I feel that I’m literally just using xanga as a notebook. Just another way to keep track of projects.

    I also just posted a query on the Rav Xangans group about keeping the group alive because I’m about to leave it. After one year, there doesn’t appear to be any interest from anyone else to post anything at all.
