I've also come to realize that the community of bloggers on the web means a great deal to me. There's a list of blogs over in the sidebar that I visit fairly frequently. Even with the ones where I've never left a comment, I find that there's almost a "coffee klatch" feeling when the site opens and I get a chance to catch up on the latest projects and life in general. Maybe it's because we're all knitters and/or crocheters, but each of the blogs is a friendly place to hang out for a few minutes a day. Knitting bloggers may be scattered across the country and even the world, but we have a connection.
On the knitting front, I've been busy working on hats for the K4 project. While today is cool - only 72 degrees at the moment - south east Michigan has been having a heat wave along with much of the rest of the country and a hat, unlike an afghan, isn't overwhelming to have on my lap. I've finished eight hats since last Thursday - nothing very photogenic so I'll relieve you of having to look at another picture that would look very much the same as previous ones. With the drop in temperatures, I'm going to go back to working on the second shrug in hopes of finishing it.
