A Day in the Rain

A Day in the Rain
Originally uploaded by catherinekerth.
Its been raining in the greater Houston area for a couple of days now.. I finally gave up and let them run free!

Knitting News
I have started the second sock and trucking right through! I was busy reading my bloglines and realized what it is I like to read about and see on others blogs... So I am going to try to get my blog worthy of what I read! Monkey see Monkey do!

Look What Terry did! She is on the Rockin' Sock club KAL and she posted her club socks for the month of MAY! I can't wait to make mine :)
They are beautiful! Go tell her you love them ;)

First order of business, DEclutter my own blog.. I read my own blog and realized it wasn't easy to read... The words were small (or I'm just old) and it just looked cluttered to me. NEW simple blog skin? Check

2. Then I read my content to see what you like to read about, what posts got the most comments? Personal stories and FO's , thats what! So I herby declare more intersting content... Umm, my life is pretty boring but I will do the best I can ;)

3. I have always wanted to share other things I do but thought it was against the rules to talk to about other interests on a knitting blog... Afterall thats why it is called a KNITTING blog right? Nope, not anymore! You guys asked for it ;) I plan to have a "what I read on the web" section after all posts to keep you on your toes... this section will include pictures to keep it interesting. I like bright shiny objects, don't you?

4. BRIGHTER PICTURES! There's a thought, get eye pleasing photos of projects! I like to look at pretty things too!

"What I read on the Web"
Knitty Gritty Thoughts: Took a poll on what content people prefer on a blog... go here to see the results.

Yea,I knit: Dani got some really cute goodies, I want some of those!

Yummyyarn: Some really good links on her post this month go check them out! Not to mention Gorgeous Shawl FO's!

Lolly: We say goodbye to the color green this month, but I think she is getting prepared for the first of June, BLUE!

Kimberly NY: She was in Parenting Mag! look here to see her published creation!

KnitWitMamma: Jenn (aka my best friend) She had the only adult case of hand ,foot, and mouth that I have ever heard of! And she has a link to this, it is really funny! READ IT! this is how you burn a seller on eabay :)

Clothesknit: Has a new look! And her wee royalty is on the mend ;)

Have a fabulous week!

I like it, but for a minute there thought I was in the wrong place. Ah, the things we do to keep our blogs interesting! Atleast you know how to get all the stuff in it, I can't for the life of me figure out all this html stuff. Some day, when I'm not knitting, reading blogs or trying to find some interesting content for my own blog, maybe then I'll figure it all out.
Oh, and the links were great! Thanks
