Hello Again

Further Edited at 3:50 pm: OK, so I changed my font style, and now the bolding shows. So all the things I've done show both bold & *. Didn't feel like taking the * out. Looks better, I think.

Edited at 3:35 pm: After reading my published blog, I realized the bolding on my entries below doesn't show up, so I added an asterisk (*) to each line that indicates the knitting things I've actually done.
(Note to self: change font)

Just in case anybody ever reads this blog, I figured I should post something. One day maybe I'll catch up with some things that have been going on in life that occupied my attention away from the Blog. But not right now.

I have no pics, or updates on my knitting, so for today, I'm going to latch onto the latest thing going around Blogland:
