Thank you all for the support!
Sorry it took me so long to respond. I just now found this discussion!
I am very excited about blogging for Bernat. They contacted me through Ravelry, and asked if I would be interested in working for them as a blogger. They provide the yarn and patterns, and I knit something new (my choice) every month. I get to keep everything I knit. And twice a year, I'll be getting some free yarn of my choice from Bernat, Patons, or Lily. (They are all part of the same company.)
It's a wonderful way to get free yarn and practice lots of different stitches and patterns. I'm sure I'll be a better knitter because of this opportunity.
So far, I've made a cape, a star afghan, and a cabled hat. Right now, I'm working on an alpaca leaf pullover. So much fun!
