KNITTING GAL

March 27, 2008

Missed Dogs on Thursday again!


Oliver is not too happy with me. I have again gone dogless on Thursday. I have some cute pics, but I am at work and can not access them! All I have is this one I used before. Oh well it will have to do. (Work always interferes with everything!) I am sorry to all the Doggie friends and will get him out here for next week.


I finally figured out how to keep updated on every ones blog without checking them all individually. I am using Google reader and it is very easy. I tried Blog Bot, but it didn't seem to work for me. I am not a star pupil with the rss feeds and stuff like that. I need someone to do the work for me and all I have to do is type. I find that I get so far with something and then a curtain comes down and that is all I will get. It happens whenever numbers or logic is involved. I think that is why my knitting isn't really the top. I can follow directions and I get things pretty well after a couple of times, but don't ask me to write a pattern or figure out a change in gauge or yarn. Ugh! I stick to what I know.
Everyone have a great weekend and I will be posting some pictures of two little sweaters I am working on for twins that are coming very soon. Take care.

That's a cute pic of Oliver!! Looks like a real sweetheart.

Grover and I think Oliver always looks good. And, I completely understand the DOT issues. That, winter and darkness make it even harder.

Jennifer said...

Oh Oliver, Frisky and I have been bad about DOT too... You doggies just keep us too busy!

Any picture of Oliver is a good picture. Glad you found Google Reader...I use that and Bloglines and it does save ALOT of time. I'm not sure I'd still be reading blogs if I had to go to each one individually! (well, I probably would, it's part of my sanity!).

Oliver is so sweet! Don't you just want to give him kisses all the time? I'm a big fan of Google Reader. I know I wouldn't be able to keep up with everyone's blogs without it.

Google Reader works great. I'm glad I discovered it early in my blogging career. I also took all of the DOT blogs and put them into a separate account at Bloglines. Makes it easier to just look at the ones that have new entries since last week.

Even if you've used it before, it's a nice photo of Oliver.

Awe what a cute picture!! Abby and Jack have not gotten that close to my yarn. :)


I use Reader and it can get stressful if you keep up with too many blogs. :) I do love it though!!
