purls beyond price
My favorites are:
Yarn Harlot (http://www.yarnharlot.ca)
Crazy Aunt Purl (http://www.crazyauntpurl.com)
I have a list of a bunch of others that I check on too in the sidebar at my blog.
I don't keep up with any at all, because I'm a sloooooow reader. But I have been to yarnharlot's blog a few times. She's a riot! :roflhard:

I like the MAson-Dixon blog
I also read : yarnstorm.com
and Posie gets cozy
but the last two are more crafty related- not just knitting.
bente b's blog is lovely- but its half in Norwegian (?) so I just gaze at the pictures mostly...

I like Grumperina (http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog/), Eunny (http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/) (her updates are rare nowadays though), Yarn Harlot (http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/) and occasionally Mason Dixon (http://www.masondixonknitting.com/). I used to check out Yarnboy (http://www.yarnboy.com/), but he hasn't updated in ages.
I like picture heavy blogs that also have some nice writing about knitting related experiences, techniques, people, etc. I'll have to check out some of these new ones.
Oh yeah and KH I definitely lurk in Ingrid's blog, Hildie's, KellyK's, Jenelle's, Cawthraven and a few more. Rarely post though.

I actually only read and post in Ingrid's blog.

:verysad:I'M CRUSHED!!! Nobody reads my blog.....LOL, just kidding!
oh my, I read a LOT of blogs and I'm so happy to say that I have met some great people through blog reading! I said for a couple of years after I started knitting that there was no way that I would blog, that's stupid...those were some nasty words I ate! I started blogging a year ago May 31 and love it! I knew NOTHING about computer code and how to start blog, etc. if it weren't for several of you I'd of never made it!
I have a blogroll on my blog and am a member of several knitting blog rings, too. I don't really read the "big/famous" knitting blogs very much, mostly just regular knitters like me :thumbsup:

I have Yarnharlot linked on my homepage so I read that one regularly, but I also check others from time to time. I also check the blogs here in KH, but they are impossible to keep up with. :lol:

Yes, they are.

I read www.julisjots.blogspot.com (http://www.julisjots.blogspot.com)
05-18-2007, 10:32 PM
I read whichever ones I can come up with that have posts about whatever it is I'm trying to knit.
But most of the time, it's just pictures, no real info. :help: At least they're almost always pretty to look at though.
And some from on here - but I can't post comments because my google account is lost, and blogger keeps claiming I can use it instead but it's only taunting me as it never attempts to step in. argh.
There is also a great one with awful patterns from the 60s, 70s, etc.
And I liked the divorced woman's blog, but I forgot to bookmark it.

I read www.pokypurler.com and www.fridaknits.com ;)
05-18-2007, 10:40 PM
My favorite one is www.CrazyAuntPurl.com (http://www.CrazyAuntPurl.com) She has a book coming out in the Fall and I have preordered it from Amazon.:cheering:
05-19-2007, 08:57 AM
I read Through the Loops (http://www.throughtheloops.typepad.com) (and just recently bought a pattern from her) and Yarn Harlot (http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog). I mostly lurk in blogs to find patterns though.
05-19-2007, 09:23 AM
I read to many to keep up with. I mostly stick the ones I like on bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com) and then just click to read when there is an update.
05-19-2007, 09:27 AM
I read www.pokypurler.com (http://www.pokypurler.com) and www.fridaknits.com (http://www.fridaknits.com) ;)
you're so sweet Cate! I think that deserves one of those new "thanks" things!
I read way too many to list (including several KH bloggers), and I'm always looking for more. In fact, my "New Finds" folder on Bloglines is almost getting longer than my "Regulars" folder. :teehee:
05-19-2007, 11:24 AM
I regularly read:
Crazy Aunt Purl
I miss You Knit What? That blog was always good for a laugh.
I use Yahoo! as my home page and subscribe to these as RSS feeds. That way I don't have to remember to check for updates.

I LOVE The Yarn Harlot's blog. She's so hillarious, and I'm always left giggling afterwards :teehee:

05-19-2007, 04:02 PM

I also check the blogs here in KH, but they are impossible to keep up with. :lol: I use Google Reader to manage all my blog subscriptions. It updates it every time I use so I just read the ones that have current posts. The only down side is it updates if there are new comments so sometimes it keeps going back to the same post on popular blogs.

I use Google Reader too, and mine doesn't do that. I just went though the preferences to see if maybe we have different subscription options selected, but I don't see anything like that on mine. I was actually thinking the other day that there are a couple blogs that I read that I would like updates on the comments. :shrug:
