Has it been a month already?

I've been a bad blogger, and I blame Ravelry.

Ravelry is the new must-see site for knitters and crocheters, still in beta and invitation-only. It has forums and wikis and what not, but the really cool part is the databases - of yarns, of patterns, of projects. Users can enter all of the details for their projects, including pictures. Then, if you have, say, one ball of Noro Silk Garden yarn, you can search for that yarn, see the projects, narrow the search, and get a pretty good idea of what can be done with the yarn.

The thing is, to get a picture into Ravelry, I need to store it in Flickr. So I upgraded my Flickr account, and started dumping my yarn pictures there. Once that is done and they are linked to Ravelry, I'm tired of them and don't want to re-do them for Blogger. Feel free to go look at them in Flickr, though.

I have finished three hats (one a chemo cap for one of T's friends), and this little beauty:

My co-worker had a baby boy in early January, and this is his "welcome to Iowa winter" gift.

It's really easy to take your pictures from flickr to blogger. Once you get the pictures up on flickr, select the picture, then click on 'all sizes' on the little icons above it. That'll take you to the large size. Just select the size you want (I usually post the small), then copy and paste the code that's in the little box under the picture directly into your blog entry. If people want to see it bigger then all they have to do is click on the pic on the blog and they'll be taken directly to your flickr account. Easy!
