Happy Seward’s Day*
Did you know that a few weeks ago I knit, blocked and mailed away an entire Hemlock Ring Blanket? I did! The worst part is that I took only one picture.
I must have serious blogger’s elbow or something because not taking a picture of a finished project? That’s just not right.
The computer was broken, and now it is not broken, but I can’t exactly say how it got fixed. It’s just a mystery to me.
“Well, if your computer is fixed than why aren’t you posting to your blog more?” you ask.
“I’m trying something new and it is taking up all of my free time,” I reply.
That something new is the pattern I’m writing to sell right here on the blog! This is a whole new world for me and something I hope to do a lot more of in the future. Here’s a peek.
Did you see that I added the “Patterns From Zigzagstitch” page up top? I also tricked out the side bar a little bit. You can have updates sent to you via email when I add a new post here. Who knew? And the “subscribe” button is new, too. Just to make it a little easier for all you nice folks out there.
*Seward’s Day is today, and celebrates the day in 1867 that William H. Seward, as Secretary of State, purchased from the Russian Empire the 586,412 square mile territory that is known today as Alaska. State employees of Alaska, like my sister Holly, have the day off. In fact, they also have a paid holiday for Alaska Day, which if you were wondering, falls on my birthday and celebrates practically the exact same thing. Gotta love that.
