OK, as you've noticed, I'm still working out the kinks in the picture posting. I don't like the fact that I can't edit any of my posts that were submitted thru Hello, which is how I get my pics online. Advice greatly appreciated.

Anyway.... The shawl (below) I cast on for is out of the Knitting Pattern-A-Day calendar and is totally easy. It's all stockinette with every 4th row a YO row, and the YOs line up to create the wedges. The Popcorn is going to be lovely, I already can't wait for it to be finished. Yes, this is from the kangaroo bag of yarn I helped label the other day (see it? top right of the bag), so I had a few extra days to fall in love with it before the launch party. I only wish she had more of the colorway on the bottom left with the purple in it, or I would have gotten that one instead.

HoJo's launch party was great, lots of people oohing and aahing over the yarns and she had quite a few sales. It's definitely better to see yarn in person, and she's done a great job of finding gorgeous and unique yarns at a variety of price points.

Hee hee, HoJo's got a picture of me labeling yarn. I shamelessly stole it to share it with you here:

Busy week... GO SEE STAR WARS. It's awesome. I also walked 4 miles with Julia yesterday and watched LOST - big finale coming! I love this time of year, longer days, more sunshine (finally), TV finales and big movies coming out. And this year I have the time to enjoy it! Keeping fingers crossed on hearing about the job interview, hopefully will hear early next week.

That's weird, because I'm able to edit my photo data (the writing that goes along with the photo) while using Hello. Is that what you're trying to do? If so, you go to "edit posts" in blogger and choose the post it is you want to edit. That should show the text under the photo.

The party was great and I was so good, I did not buy that much - well, not much according to my standard ;-)

Give flickr a try! They've got a handy "blog this" button or "view in multiple sizes" which you can cut and paste into your entry (this took me forever to figure out. enter multiple pictures with this method)
