Change is good, right?

I've been using Google Reader for quite awhile to keep track of the many places that I find inspiration. But my time for reading blogs has been few and far between with chasing this little guy around...

But I do find pockets of time to catch up and pin ideas from the 1,000 plus posts waiting to be read. So I am testing out Bloglovin. Learning the ropes (does anyone know how to read the "oldest" posts first?) And in my explorations I found instructions to "claim your blog", so here I am trying to claim my blog. If you are so inclined, please Follow my blog at Bloglovin.

Change is good, right? And learning something new is always good!
Happy Monday!

Take Three - Fretful WIP

I am determined to complete a pair of socks using my Happy Feet yarn. This will be my third start with this yarn. The first was a sock KAL that didn't get very far. I started late and missed the final parts of the pattern. The second try was Zazzles. Which brings me to Fretful, don't you just love the little twists? I'm also giving the long tail purl cast on. What's that? A quick search on youtube will take you to many videos demonstrating the technique. Here's the one I watched. So a new technique and a few rows on the needles and off we go.

Goodbye Zazzles

I love the stitch pattern of Zazzles, but I'm disappointed at how it is showing up in this yarn. So I'm putting on my brave face and will be starting over... Goodbye Zazzles, until we meet again (in a nice dk weight yarn, I hope)
