a confession

My name is barefoot rooster, and I am a lurker. Today, I began the delurking process. Empowered by my new status as a blogger, I started to say hello. Thanks a whole bunch to Leslie, of a friend to knit with, for leaving my first ever comment. (Soon, I will figure out how to turn those words into a link to her gorgeous blog. Now I understand what the “strikethrough” font option is for.) It feels good to be part of an ongoing conversation with the online world. Yay!

Long day at work today, in part because the animal, as I call him, decided that he NEEDED to go outside at 3:30, 4:30 and 5:30 this morning. My house is so small (in a good way) that I cannot get far enough away from him to have a shot at ignoring his whimpering. At 6, I caved and let him curl up with me for my last half-hour of precious sleep. Anyway, I arrived at home to find a beautiful sort-of surprise: needles that I’d lent to a staff member this summer. She wrapped them in a sumptuously soft, super bulky piece of green scrap yarn before tucking them in the envelope. Even though the light is bad right now, I must show you:

Adorable. Time for some roasted veggies (beautifully bright red peppers in my CSA box this week) and some quality David Lynch (Twin Peaks Season 2).

  1. Hey there Rooster! Thanks for delurking today on my blog. I love hearing from people I’ve never heard from before, especially when they have such beautiful canine companions (and yay! for David Lynch).

    So WELCOME to the blogosphere–the more the merrier, of course! And wow, what a nice-looking blog you’ve put together for yourself. I love the banner, especially.


  2. Hey BR,

    I have been following you for a while and at last have plucked up the courage to say Hi and tell you I love your blog. You have made me want to knit!

    I am a latent knitter and want to come out. I know I can do it, but I dont know where to start. My Grandmother taught me to knit a Very Long Time Ago and only last year, I bought myself a pair of needles and knitted a very boring little scarf for my daughter but I want to get better and make a hat for myself, a vest and eventually, a cardigan. I know I can do it, I just lack courage.

    Where do I start?

    I have come all the way back to your blogging beginning to see where you started to knit, and even though you say you are new, you seem pretty accomplished to me!
