People are reading my blog?!

I have to admit, I did not touch my Freesia sock last night. I got this great idea to try and make a needle case like the ones Lantern Moon has. I know that I have only ever sewed 2 bags but I am willing to try. I still have a bunch of fabric from the drawstring bags so I tried to make a pattern for myself. I finished the outside and top flap last night and I have to say it looks pretty good. I may not show any pictures until I decide if I like it though. I got pretty crazy with the pattern and measurements so we’ll see.

I do have some new Freesia Picture from two nights ago. I started on the heel and have to say that I am thoroughly confused. I am following Wendy's pattern and I don’t exactly know where this is going. I am leaving it in Wendy’s hands. I have faith that in the end I will have a nice heel. It doesn’t look like I started it in the pictures, but I did.

And no I don’t have clown feet even though it may look rather large right now. I wear a size 8 1/2 - 9 most of the time. It will look more proportioned when I am on the leg.

I have an odd question…Did anyone else feel a bit weird when they first discovered that other people are reading their blog?

I have had a couple of comments by the same people and had a nice email exchange with Patti (who happens to be the first blog I started reading) and Dee, and it all feels a bit odd. I know that I started this blog fully aware that others may read it but I didn’t expect that anyone actually would. (besides my mom and aunt) So thanks guys for being interested in my ramblings!!

Did today seem unusually slow to anyone else? I need a nap…

I didn't feel weird because I figured when I joined knit-alongs and bloggers groups people I didn't know would stop by once in awhile, especially when you show up on the knit bloggers "new" list. Now I'm always excited when someone new stops by and I feel like I have "friends" all over the world. It's pretty cool.

P.S. Love the color of your sock. It's a happy color for sure.

I am delighted to read your blog. Thank you for sharing your "ramblings". Doesn't it feel good to know that you have some of the most creative people sharing as well. When I'm blue, I just need to click through my reader and I see color, read words, and travel to exotic destinations.
I love the sock as well. Great colors.

I just found your blog today. It was on a list for Florida knitters. I also live in Florida. Anyway I don't want to be a lurker so Hi.

The first time I got a comment from somebody that wasn't my family, actually they rarely leave comments, they usually call me or e-mail me but yes it did feel wierd. It was like an "oh somebody else reads this" kind of feeling.

Btw, I really like the color of yarn you are using for your socks.
