Purl Up With A Good Book

   I have decided to join a knitting club called, “Knit the Classics” [ KTC Blog ] where each month we read a classic novel while knitting a project.  It’s just a wonderful idea, being able to combine two things that I love so much: knitting and reading.  They just finished reading Mansfield Park, which I’m actually a little upset that I missed because I do love it so much and I’d love to be able to talk about it a little more with people who are reading it at the same time.

   Other than that, I have my swaps that are coming up very soon.  I have already started this very cute project from knitty.com [ Wisp ] that everyone should check out and consider trying to make.  It goes very quickly and it’s so nice and delicate and just such a great idea for a project!  The more I explore the online knitting life, the more I find that I want to do!  I never knew there were trips you could take and just knit!  I think that’s just a wonderful idea and I so wish that I had the money to participate in such a vacation.  Alas, I am just a broke college student spending every last penny on yarn and nothing else.

   I think that’s all that I’m going to write about for tonight.  I’m about to head out and play with Poncho [ my all-time favorite pet Macaw! ] and of course his owner Josh as well.  Some people are just so touchy and get offended if you say that the reason you want to see a person is really just to be able to hang out with their pet bird.  So silly.

Blogger Sucks!

So, I had a blog on Blogger [ maddietheknitter.blogspot.com ] and somehow, my blog is no longer linked to my e-mail address, so I can’t access it at all!  So I have decided that now I’m going to just blog on WordPress, which I’m very excited about.  I love it so far.  It’s WAY easier than trying to use Blogger.  Well, this blog will be dedicated to my knitting/yarn obsession and the life that revolves around of it.  Link me, e-mail me, comment me, do whatever you’d like!  I’ll put up my first real post VERY soon!
