Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

I'm not sure I understand why but I'll take it.

I've been posting a lot more regularly (and frequently) over the last few weeks. It's been kind of fun getting back into the swing of blogging and sharing stuff with all my knit/blog sibs (thanks Brenda for the term). I've especially enjoyed it since the move. You have all been such a support and joy for me since coming to NC. I lost all my "in person" friends but I got to keep all of you so, things have been a bit easier than they would have been without you. During the months since the move, whenever I've felt a 'black day' coming on, I've sat down and read my blogs (I really need to update my list, sorry guys) and written here. It's kept me much less lonelier than had you all not been here for me. Thank you so much for all that you give me.

That being said, let me explain the title of this post. Although I don't get a ton of comments (lurkers, I know you are out there - tee hee), I do get enough that I feel 'connected' with you all. I'm grateful for each comment I get. I have recently gotten a few wonderful comments where I have been complimented on my blog and have been told that this delightful blog (I still can't get over that - tee hee hee) is being added to their blog reading.

Me. Little old me is keeping you all entertained AND getting wonderful comments like that. I am humbled (and honestly dumbfounded). I mean, this is just me rambling on and on. I read other blogs and I totally "get" why they are so popular and why I have them on my bloglists but ME? Seriously? No, I mean, SERIOUSLY?????

So, I don't quite get why you all keep coming back but I wanted to say that I thank GOD every day that you do and that you all are so kind to me in your comments, encouragement and support. You have all been so much more to me than you can all imagine and I thought I should take a moment (and a post) to thank you.


(btw, March 15th can't come soon enough) - Hey, did I mention that I scored some of these? I am SO excited with them. They are AMAZING! Thanks again Amy, they are amazing.

Lest you think this is no longer a blog about knitting, I have completed 3 washcloths, a set of wrist warmer (Noro Silk Garden - yummy!) and have finished the first sleeve of Arwen. Slow but steady wins the race, right?


OK, so American Idol this week. Here are my calls.

Boys first as usual. What the heck is up with them? I agree with Paula, Randy and Simon. There are really only a few guys worth the competition at this time. But, only two have to go so I think that although SANJAYA is the first that needs to go, with the way things have been going (who is voting for him? - I heard that in the votes last week he was 4th among the guys - huh?) I think that PHIL (Leann Rimes song? WTF?) and SUNDANCE (only Eddie Vedder should sing Pearl Jam songs - especially Jeremy) are going to go this week.

Girls next: Please, please, please I don't think she will go but ANTONELLA should go. That being said, I think that HALEY (again please, please, please - if I want to see someone like her, I'll go on a cruise, ok?) and GINA (damn, I LIKE her) are going to go.

Who do I want to see go? I want it to be Sanjaya and Phil (though his story is fab) and Antonella and Haley. I'm afraid for Sundance and Gina though. . . . .

I love reading your blog Janette. You're awesome, and your knitting ain't half bad either :)!

Love reading your blog!

Over here on the west coast AI is still going on. I didn't catch very much at all of last night's show but the judges seemed unimpressed by the talent or lack thereof. Tonight doesn't seem much different.

I found you through lollygirl and I loved reading your last two blogs. I'm a new knitter (I love socks), a quilter, a West Coast fan, and love Grey'a Anatomy. I'm not a blogger but I just signed up for a blogspot--who knows what the future will bring.

Antonella and Haley, yes, should be gone!

Sanjaya, get outta here!

And don't worry too much about Gina; I invested some voting time on her.

March 15 is always a good day for me, it's my b-day.

Keep blogging! It's worth it,

I liked Sundance! I don't think he was the best of the entire group (maybe one of the better guys) but there were definitely guys who did worse this week (*cough*Sanjaya*cough*). I'm so glad Gina gets to stick around, I love that she's so different than everyone else and it would be cool to have a winner who doesn't have the same singing style as previous winners.
