I use WordPress for my blog and one of the features it has is that it gives you some basic stats on the blog. I like checking it to see where people came from, what they click on, what they read on the blog….and what they searched for that found my blog. Sometimes its funny, sometimes puzzling. I get a lot of hits from combinations of “does cotton shrink” because of my issue with Soleil last year. So when I checked today, I was sort of amused to find that someone found me with the search term “pretty monkey”. OK, I guess it found my Monkey socks. But then someone else found me with the search “pretty monkey with scarf”. I’m hoping it was the same person. But why would someone want to find a pretty monkey with scarf. Sort of creepy, eh?
I am working from home today because I went for a stress test this morning. I’ve been having some issues with my heart, but I’m sure it’s ok. Stress test wasn’t bad (and I did claim it as a weight watchers activity point!). So now its lunch time, and I have 10 minutes so I thought I’d blog…
I have been working on Ariann, but I’ve also been working on my Flicker socks (nothing to show yet – just more of the same). But I couldn’t resist starting a new pair with the yarn I bought last week…
This is Child’s First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks in Sophie’s Toes. The colorway is Water Lilies…but it just makes me think of spring. This is the fourth pattern I tried with this yarn – and if this didn’t work, the yarn was going back in the stash. But I’m pretty happy with how its coming out – and what a great pattern! I sort of stumbled across it and decided to give it a try. I do like it, and think that perhaps I’ll try it again sometime in a solid (or at least a more solid) – but it is a interesting pattern, so if you are looking for one, check it out. But nice yarn, eh?
I’ve been trying to increase the number of nice stitch markers I own – a few months ago, I only used the white plastic ones. Then I kept on seeing everyone else with nice beaded ones….so I’ve been buying. My last purchase was from Laurie at her new Etsy shop.
Because I was her first customer, she made me extra markers…pretty!
So no takers on the Friday Knitting Club book….I guess I will be donating it to the library!
Time for me to get back to work – have a good week!
