New Blogs

I’ve been kind of sucked into the computer lately. Of course, I’m still cranking away on my knitting projects and am very nearly finished with the two I have on the needles right now–a pair of socks for Mr. Interrupted and a pair of fingerless mitts for the same.

Mondays are for Blogging

I really need to set aside some time just for blogging. Otherwise, as my dear readers can see, I just keep putting it off and putting it off and before I know it, a week has gone by when I promised I’d blog the next day.

Random because that all I’ve got right now

1. My energy levels have been all wonky lately, hence the quietness of The Blog. 2. I am working on it w/ my Doctor, but in the mean time, I’ve been spending a lot of time on tumblr. If you aren’t familiar with tumblr, it’s kind of like a step up from twitter. If twitter… Continue reading Random because that all I’ve got right now
