Blinkies make me happy...

I think I am finally getting the hang of this blog thing. I figured out how to do the blinkies without stealing bandwith! Yay! I have more that I want to put up, but I decided to hold back and maybe switch some out from time to time. I think blinkies are cool! Now I want to get some buttons for my site.
This has been a long weekend. Today I planted flowers for my grandmother so that she would have something nice to enjoy at her rest home. She seemed very happy with them. I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow. It seems like yesterday was Friday and I feel like I should have another day off. I guess that is because last week was a short work week. My yard is still looking good. I will probably mow tomorrow or Tuesday night. I do need to get out a few weeds from the herb bed that I noticed today. I have some herbs that have been in pots this summer that I want to move to the bed.

I haven't made it to the knitting yet this weekend. I may try to do that tonight while watching football and tennis. Speaking of knitting...I need advice from all you great knitsters out there. Is there an easy way to describe how to go from one color to another while knitting? I want to get started next week on a halloweeny scarf for myself, I think I've mentioned it before, and don't know how to do the color changes. Suggestions? Remember I am a very basic knitter. I can knit with two types of yarn at the same time, but I have only done basic stuff.

Well, I'm out of here. Time to feed the beastie (and kitties) and change out the laundry.

I'm a begginer knitter myself. But I just decide when to change colors, tie a knot with the 2 ends of the different colors, and there you have it. Of course you will have to weave in the ends from the knot.

Thanks Queen! I will check it out. I figured it was something like that, but was just too chicken to try it without advice! :-)
