Socktoberfest sign-up

I signed up for Socktoberfest. Me and 1700 other cyberknitters are going to knit socks this month. Since I was already into my peacock circular sock, I figured I didn't have anything to lose. I also can't seem to find any rules to this knit-a-long, so fabulous, count me in!

You may have noticed the eye-catching buttons located to your right. I figured out how to do a new thing on Blogger. Hooray! It is a little like a scavenger hunt to find how to do these things. It also makes you feel like you have been living in bush with the Wee Forest Folk and everyone else has been doing this for decades. Anyway, I am now button-saavy. Wow.

I wish I knew how to change the top banner. Boring!

I must mention that my technical advisor, Emily, is quite helpful when she cares to be. I only suffered through months of surfing the web, buying a book at Barnes & Noble, and careful cutting and pasting code that I still don't understand, and she says, "Here, hand it to me," and then in about two seconds had my button turned into a link. Don't you just love it?

Emily-Don't feel nerdish-remember, the computer literate "nerds" are ruling the world these days, And those of us lucky enough to have relatives (i.e.-children)to help them, are grateful for your ease with all this tech stuff-Spoken by the over 40 crowd-(By the way, I know that sounds Ancient to you, but I can still remember figuring out that I'd be in a new century when I was 40, and I'm here in the blink of an eye) TL
