Getting started

It's a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest and I'm having trouble deciding whether to knit, garden, walk the dog, or none of the above. So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to enter the fascinating world of Blogdom without spending all my time in front of the computer. It's not working out real well. Since millions of others have gone before me, I'm confident that I, too, will succeed.

These are squares knitted and sent to Laura in Kansas to help victims of the tornado. They're easy to do, fun, and it's great to watch her reports of squares coming in.
This is a hat and blanket I made from wool (blanket is Lion Wool and hat is Lamb's Pride worsted) and sent to afghans for Afghans. I knit for them often, and feel good about being able to help people in some small way, at the same time doing something I love!

Let me be the first to leave a comment on your new blog and say congratulations on doing such wonderful knitting work. Keeping others warm is just as important as keeping ourselves warm

Hey Laurie.

Congrats on the new blog!
The blanket is beautiful. I love the colour.
Hope the mini tutorial helped.
