Pattern is One-Row Handspun Scarf.  Yarn is Cascade 220.  100% Andean Wool.  My project page is here

To enter leave a comment (on the blog, not facebook) and you can win this fabulous scarf, knitted by me.

Your Question(s):  How did you start reading my blog? What do you like/dislike? Do you have a hobby that is a bit addictive like mine? Or just leave me any comment, but I thought I'd give you some ideas.

Good luck!  I look forward to reading your comments.


  1. Cute scarf!

    Maybe I'll get the comments rolling for you. Encourage others!

    Be patient with commenting though. It's really hard when you start writing because you want everyone to leave their thoughts. I didn't start getting comments until about 3-4 months of writing at least 5 times a week. (A couple here and there in month two.) It takes time for people to find your blog. Family and friends don't realize that they can use the anonymous feature to leave the comment, etc. Hope that helps. It's a frustrating process but if you like blogging and stick with it, the comments will come!!

    I would also take off word capture. Go to settings, comments, scroll to the bottom, click "no" for "show word verification for comments". I get about 1500 page views a day and get very little spam to no spam without it on. It's just one other step people get frustrated with when leaving comments.

    Sorry this is so long but I hope it helps!!!

    1. Thanks. Will do. I did not know it was on. I had to go into the old interface to change it. I hope to change my template soon too.
