Oy, I've Committed Blog!

I blame it on Cute Overload. They have a link to a new blog program called Vox, and without pre-processing the idea through my brain, I found myself signing up and designing and so forth. But after the 3rd or 4th snag (the worst being that it insisted on publishing my full name and my birthday), I managed a rational moment and decided this new blogging program was just a bit too close to beta tests to work for me.

So here I am at Blogger. One of the best features will be the ability to publish my pictures. And I'm thinking that I may spend less time compulsively posting on knitting forums, just to keep in touch with my online friends. (Somewhere in the background of this is the fact that about 8 of my friends have set up their own blogs in the last couple of weeks. Attack of the "Me, too!" syndrome, common to knitters.)

I'm probably foolish to think I'll cut down on my computer time, freeing up more hours to knit. Midnight and Shadow, our elderly cats, would certainly like me to spend more time petting them and providing treats, plus of course more frequent meals and kitty box cleaning. DH is just shaking his head in disbelief.

Hooray! And I'm so glad to actually see the Rumor scarf, which is,indeed gorgeous.

Just hope you won't disappear completely from the About forum.

Could I possibly be the FIRST?!! Congrats, CBM! And I LOVE the pictures...the self-pic is especially beautiful!

I like all the photos of the scarves, and am impressed with the blue/tan SWS. It really shows the stitch definition.

Again, congrats and consider yourself bookmarked!

So, you have gone over to the dark side, I see. I did it myself this summer because I needed a blog in order to join Knit the Classics. I haven't publicised it because I have put up only one post. Congratulations! It is nice to see your beautiful cats after hearing about them for so long.

Enjoy, sweetie! Blogging can be a ton of fun.

We need to get together soon...

Hi B, I just discovered your blog! :-) Yes, it can be fun if you ever find time to update it. You're off to a great start with quotidian entries. ;-) Blogging is a great way to show off pictures, huh?
