It's July 2, 2007, and I've finally started a blog. I've been viewing other blog pages and enjoyed reading them. There are a few that are my favorite and I would check in on them at least once a week. Each time telling myself that I was going to start my own page.....well after a year of being the ghost blogger, and having a few days off for the holiday, I decided that I need to create my own.

I've been knitting it seems like forever. I learned a very long time ago and it's so good to see how popular knitting is now. I remember when there was only 1 knitting store in sf; now, there's 7-8 stores. I remember when Crystal palace had their retail store (Straw into Gold) in Berkeley. I took many classes there along w/ purcashing yarn (my favorite thing to do). I was so sorry to see it close, I still miss that store.

Right now I'm working on a shrug for one ( I have 2) of my granddaughters, a seamless sweater for the other and the red light special hat (from brooklyn tweed). I'll post pictures once I figure out this blogging thing.

I have a cat, who has just pushed me out of my big chair, so he can sleep. I also have a dog. I just received my digital camera in the mail, so I planned on taking lots of photos of my grands, my animals and my knitting - you might even find an occassional picture of me - yikes.

This morning I decided that today is the day for me to start walking my dog up to the dog park, instead of driving there. There are alot of hills here in sf and I lived on one of them. So my walk is all uphill. When I finally got to the dog park, I was sweating, but to my surprise I was not huffing and puffing as much as I thought. I so glad I did it, it feels good. so my goal is to do this 5 times a/week.

It's a beautiful day here in sf, so I'm going out to enjoy it. Might even stop by my lys. Hmmmm, today seems to be alot of firsts for me
