cowl girl

(You see it. I know you do.)
The winner of the cowlgirls book is #221, Lucia. Please email me with your address and I will make sure you receive the book.

Don't you just hate that bloglines is closing! It really is such a bummer and is totally confusing me as to what to do with all the blogs I subscribe to. Is google reader our only option?

Hope the sun is shining where you are.

I was cheesed off about Bloglines too Leslie, but I have shifted all mine over to Google reader and quite like it now. I am so bad about change! x

Tracey said...

It's a heart. On such a dreary day in NY, it's a pick me up. Too bad I didn't win that cowl girls book. Better luck next time I guess!

Kristyn Knits said...

heart you.
Congratulations Lucia!!

ColorSlut said...

Congrats Lucia. And I love how the center of the tomato looks like a heart!

Sarah Jane said...

oh, i don't know what bloglines is, but am a happy google reader user.

kim said...

I see it! <3

I'm so upset about Bloglines. Do you suppose they will change their minds?

house on hill road said...

i do see it!
and about google reader - i made the switch over a year ago and it took some getting used to, but i do love it now.

TD wool design said...

always used google reader. it's not bad.
rain and stormy here. and for most of the week. you know what that means... click clack.

Suzanne said...

I've never used bloglines but I use google reader. Somewhere I learned how to add a "next" button to my toolbar which pops the next new entry up in my current window. It's like reaching my hand into a grab bag and always getting something I want. I'm not good at transition but hope you are happy with whatever you end up using.

mle said...

Google Reader is waaaay better than Bloglines. I switched over earlier this year...so much better.

Poshyarns said...

After just having a mighty large bookmark folder I finally got the hang of Reader about a year ago - I have a customise google homepage with my reader window up and my flickr, it works really well for me. On the otherhand I completely hate change and if I were a bloglines user I would be in need of much gin to get me through the transition.

Poshyarns said...

And Leslie, I love your flower vase - soy sauce? I use a vase just like it and it's an old soy sauce bottle!!

Sandy said...

I use Google Reader also.
I sent you an email recently, but it keeps bouncing back to me. I need your expertise on a knitting needle, leslie. :)
xo

MadMad said...

I use the old fashioned click until I hit something new system. It's a little more time-consuming, sure, but then when you DO find a new one, it's like a little present.

Loretta said...

Leslie, love your blog. Fortunately, the sun is shining here in NC. More rain tomorrow and Thursday though...we need it but UGH..puts a damper on my OBX training.

Kathy said...

That looks like a heart on the top of that tomato! Just as I feel about your blog. :)

lapdogknits said...

Yes, it's shining....but thankfully it's so much cooler than yesterday, Southern California hit the highest temps yesterday in history - such a bummer when one is trying to knit a wool beanie, bloglines??? I'm so new to all this blogging; guess it's time to learn again - bring on google reader...

Janelle said...

I was unhappy about Bloglines, too, but switched to GR. It took some customizing to get it to act like I expected it to. But I love how it handles my podcast feeds - MUCH better than Bloglines could.

Leonie said...

Love the heart, very cute.

Have only used GR and am very happy to have everything just turn up ready to be browsed through. Don't know how bloglines works so don't know how different they are. Best of luck with getting used to it.
I do like the "subscribe" feature which sits in my toolbar and when I find a new blog I like I just hit subscribe button and it adds it to GR. Also you can import all of your existing subscriptions into GR in one go using Subscriptions > Manage subscriptions> Import/export which would save a lot of time on the change over. The bloglines portion of the process is outlined on their front page today. Good Luck

mary said...

i heart this and I also heart that you went to my most favorite yarn store which also happens to be my LYS. glad you got there!

lorena said...

I too used to used Bloglines and was just down to think about losing all the blogs I read (because that's totally what I thought would happen!) Thankfully I did give google reader a try and it works fine but not before trying fastladder which didn't update the blogs and was just waaay slow and they never answered my email so google reader it has been for me for about three weeks. Some things I don't like but it's better than losing the blogs I love to read, like yours! :)

Maggie said...

Lucky Lucia! I use NetNewsWire as my blog reader, I downloaded it for free.

seashoreknits said...

Sweet little heart tomato.
I hear you on the Bloglines angst - I had it too for about 10 minutes and made the switch to Google Reader about a week ago. It was super super easy and I'm quite digging it now. Join the fun!!

thriftingvignettist said...

Bloglovin' just barely made it so you could import .ompl files, meaning that you don't have to re-subscribe to everything.
I switched to reader, but I despise the aesthetic of the site, so I use the "Next" button, which you can find by clicking Settings and then Goodies. I just click "Next" in my toolbar and it takes me right to the next post - without ever having to look at google reader's ugly site!

Maiken said...

I loved Bloglines and couldn't live without it.... BUT I exported all feeds to Google Reader, and it is SO MUCH better - so no need to worry ;o)

jujudo said...

See it. What a special catch!

LoriK said...

If you use Outlook, you can receive RSS feeds as emails. I've been trying it out this week and so far, I like it. The RSS feeds are in a separate folder from your inbox. A new post shows up like a new email and I like that I can save emails/posts that I really like or want to return to later.

stitching under oaks said...

sweet. love that you see hearts everywhere.

morewithles said...

I use FeedBlitz.

Sarah said...

Just wanted to say I LOVE Google Reader. Hope you find something you like to do the job. :-)

Ally Johnston said...

Sun was out yesterday but today is cloudy. Come on Summer where are you?

peaknits said...

I'm very much wondering what to do "after bloglines: because I didn't even know about google reader - I'll be checking it out and watching future comments to see what people are doing - thanks for posing the question:)

Larissa said...

Awesome heart spotting! And is that basil in your vase? Love it!

molly said...

Tell me you auctioned it off on Ebay for, like, $3000? Like that Kansas cornflake, a few years back? Imagine how much yarn that could buy...

Lisa said...

Yup. Saw it even before I read your tiny note. I heart the tiny note too.

Knitting Out Loud said...

Foggy here on the Maine coast. Very fall, lovely with the leaf colors.

Ali said...

Get google reader and install the 'next' button - you can read all the new posts from your feeds in their own blogs, which makes commenting so much easier. You'll never have to interface with reader apart from setting it up!

Nancy said...

I use Net News Wire for my blogs. Been using it for several years and it works great.

Jennifer said...

I switched to Google Reader with little to no problems and after 2 days forgot all about Bloglines. Good luck with the transition.
