Probably making the change...
I haven't made the official decision, but I am pretty sure that I'll be moving here

For now, I'll be posting only there just to get used to it, so come and see me there while I make my decision.

on making changes

I am continuing to struggle with the decision on whether to change to wordpress or stay with blogger.

There are a lot of reasons to do either one.

I like the ease of wordpress, it has been really easy to get to know it, I haven't had any troubles with posts, with adding pics, etc. It was very easy to set up a nice looking blog in a short time.

A few things I like about blogger - already set up, familiar, everyone know the address. Also, easy to post pics thru picasa once I save the pic on my computer. It has been relatively easy to change the template, even with the minimal skills I have.

What I don't like about blogger: troubles with posting more than one pic in a post, sometimes I can'tget any of the pics to upload! Recently I have had trouble even accessing my blog, or the dashboard on at least 3 different occasions.

On wordpress, I wish that there was the option to change the template for free. I am not opposed to paying for the blogging service...but...

So, my question is: what is everyone else's opinion? Should I stay here or move?

shawl update...

You know how when you are tired and frustrated you tend to jump to all sorts of wrong conclusions....
It is a good thing that I didn't completly overreact last night (I was almost ready to rip it off the needles!
Yes I've made an error somewhere in the pattern, and I am off by one stitch - but that will be easily fixable. The part I overreacted to last night was my fault - reading the wrong paragraph, which made me think that I'd been knitting the wrong stitches since the 7th row...I'm blaming it on the time change this weekend, and being stressed out.
I have more than 100 stitches on the needle already, once I get to 191 I start the lace pattern. Posted by Picasa

post deleted - obviously I am not smart enough to read a pattern...more details later when I decide if I should rip it all out and start over, or if I should just change course now...
