First Randoms of November!


Happy November, everyone!

1. As promised, Yarn Life is up! I'm excited! Let me know how you like it. And please, if you do like it, I'd love if you could link to it in a blog entry so your readers can find it too. Thanks!

2. It's NaNo day! I wrote about 50 words at midnight, so at least I've started. Now I'm working out some character names/ages/etc.

3. It's November, so can it go ahead and snow already? Just a little. Please. Sheesh.

4. I have a list of blog posts I want to write. At least four of them. Gah.

5. My boss is away this week. Therefore, everything is breaking.

6. I feel like I have been working on the multidirectional diagonal scarf for ever. Maybe I'll manage to finish it this weekend.

7. Can we add, oh, four hours to each day for the foreseeable future? That would be really helpful right now.

8. There were, indeed, trick-or-treaters at my friend's house. Some of them were extremely adorable. Fun.

9. Said friend has me wanting All-Clad now. She got it as a graduation gift to herself. So maybe next year I deserve some too...

10. I just read somewhere that Trekking can be machine washed. I somehow hadn't realized this. It makes me very happy.

11. And I feel like I need an eleventh because it's November 1. Oh, yeah. I'm on a quest to put "all" knitting blogs on the Yarn Life Blogroll. Any guesses as to how many I'll find?

Congrats on your first issue of Yarn Life! I like the idea of a frequently updated online mag, best of luck with it.

I'm betting you can find well over 1000 blogs for your blogroll.

Hey...I put the link on my blogs!

Good luck with your novel. I got to bed at 11, so no writing last night, but I'm at about 2,700 words now. Some people have over 50,000. In one day! I'm curious how you're compiling your list of blogs. You missed mine so I'm not listed somewhere.

Good luck with Yarn Life.

I tried to set up a syndicated account on LiveJournal for Yarn Life, but it doesn't see XML from the site. FYI.

Good luck on NaNoWriMo!

Nice job on Yarn Life! I would link to you from my hardly-knitting blog, but we're about to nuke both blogs to eliminate spam. Once I have a safe place to put it, I'll post it.

That Yarn Life blog roll will be HUGE. When you do find them, it might be cool to create a custom google search of the blogs and of course on-line yarn stores.

Your first issue is great, and I've added the blog to my Newsgator.

And, the number of knit-bloggers? Some insane number--we're numerous and growing! Good luck on finding them all!

Somewhere, I don't remember where, of course, I just read that there are ~900 knittng blogs. The unknown/unremembered source didn't define what it meant by "knitting blog" but anyway. I bet you get a lot.

If you get that extra 4 hr/day, can I have some?

Posted by: kmkat at November 1, 2006 11:25 PM

Yes, I'll be looking for the knit blog count as well - I'm guessing it's over 1500? It will be fun to see what you come up with :)

Oh, and I put a link to Yarn Life in my blog today!
