Learning Blogger & Photo Updates

is becoming frustrating. Now that I have the image I want in my header, I want to move the title & description to the right of the image. I think it should be simple, but I just can't figure it out - even after reading "Blogger for Dummies" and posting a question on the blogger help group. I guess I'll just leave it as is for now, but it is bugging me.

Anyway, the kitty in the header is my BT (Black & Tan, not very imaginative, but descriptive). She adopted me about 11 years ago when she decided to hang out on my deck. See where she is sitting - on the keyboard and amongst the knitting projects? She loves to be helpful. The projects in the image are the Opal socks I gifted to a friend and the Purlwise Beret that was a gift to another friend.

I added a link to my finished objects photo album. I'm missing a bunch of photos and need to find them.

Here's one of my favorite photos.....

This is the recipient of the Baby Bolero from One Skein and a rolled brim hat in Organic Cotton by Blue Sky Alpacas.

Happy blogging & knitting!

Mardi Gras Soulard Style

We didn't get to ride with the Segway Precision Team in the Grand Parade on Saturday because the snow, wind and cold made it unsafe. Here I am riding the Segway the weekend before at the Pet Parade...

Our Open House after the parade was loads of fun. Friends stopped by for Cajun food, drinks and the bathroom. Wonder Woman stopped in after the cancellation of the High Heel Drag Race - what a fantastic costume! Pictures of the Open House and Pet Parade can be found in the links on the right.

If you are interested in more info on Soulard Mardi Gras and photos, click on the poster...

Two knitted items were gifted - Terri received a mini sock blocker key chain to match her real socks made in Opal Lollipop and Cecelia received a pair of Fetchings in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Black. I didn't take pictures. I'll have to check to see if I have a picture of Terri's real socks.

I'll be off to the SnB at the Westin on Tuesday.

It's about time....

...I update this blog and publish it for friends and family. I started it a year ago and only posted 3 times, never publishing. So here it is. It still needs some work, so you will see changes in the next few days.

To celebrate the start of Spring Training for the STL Cardinals. I've added a countdown clock to Opening Day April 1, 2007, 12:10pm. (It's in the sidebar). Warm weather can not be far off!
