Something new [part 3]

Firstly, thanks to all those who dropped by and wished me well on the anniversary of my blog's existence. While I was 'redecorating', I considered changing my blog's name. I thought something simple like "Lynne Knits" but I also crochet and dye so that was too exclusive. I rather like "Life, the Yarniverse and Everything" or "Life in the Yarniverse" but there's a yarn store called Yarniverse and I don't think they'd appreciate it. Since I knit mostly for charity [although you'd never know it at the moment between the ungiven baby blanket and the wedding stole] I also considered "Knit to Give" but, again, I also have other yarn habits! Maybe that should be my blog name!!

Anyway, I've decided to leave it as it is for now - I feel I'm only just getting known in Blogland so now may not be the time to change!! Feel free to share your opinion - I really want to know what readers think.

Speaking of my blog, you have probably noticed that I have finally figured out how to put a photo on my blog header - one of my own hand-dyed yarns from last January, photo courtesy of WM. It was all in getting the 800x200 picture size!

Lastly, - the wedding stole* progresses - I'm now up to 28 repeats [the end of the centre panel is in sight, people].

*Somewhere along life's journey I have learnt shawl = triangular, stole is used for rectangular pieces so even though Jane Sowerby calls it 'Myrtle Leaf Shawl' my head keeps saying 'stole'.

I'm off to knit!


  1. Love the new blog look but keep the is you!

    Keep up the pace on the stole-you are on a roll!

  2. Hi Lynne
    Leave the name - it is you now and so very Aussie - I really like it. The stole looks great! Congrats on the anniversary - 2 years is fantastic.

  3. Please keep the name.

    As the previous replies have stated it's you.


    'Too hot for yarn' NEVER!

  4. Your progress on the wedding stole is very inspiring! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  5. I still haven't worked out how to put a photo in my blog header, so you are way ahead of me!

    Way to go on the stole progress - that's fantastic!

  6. happy happy bogiversary!

    I love the new look! and I am very impressed with your crocheting - you are so clever!

  7. Love the pic on the blog header, it's fabulous.
