The SITS Girls Spring Fling Has Sprung

SITS Girls Spring Fling Event:
A Blog Improvement Challenge--
Build Your Community &
Improve Your Blog
I signed up for this a couple of weeks ago knowing that it was to start on the day I was leaving home.  I was actually able to get Monday's task [link your blog at SITS and leave comments on two others] done before I had to shut down my netbook and pack it for the trip but there was too much getting unpacked and organized at this end not to mention rested yesterday to get Tuesday's task done so this evening I caught up on Tuesday's [link your Twitter at SITS and follow two others and send some tweets] and after I get this posted I'll be doing Wednesday's task [link you blog's fb page at SITS and fan two participants pages]

It's not too late to join in.  It last through next week.  Here are the links for signing up and doing the first three tasks:

  • Sign Up: Get on our email distribution list for this event
  • Blog link-up: Share your blog URL and get commenting
  • Using Twitter to Build Your Community
  • Facebook Fans Page

  • Tomorrow will be about using Google+ and Friday about Pinterest.  The only one I'm not already signed up for is Pinterest.  But Google+ is sitting dead in the water since I signed up a couple months ago.  I don't really know how to use it.  Hoping for help from the tutorials at SITS tomorrow.  Same for Pinterest.

    I'll also be looking into the tutorials on Twitter, and fb available at the links above.

    As soon as I've done today's assignment I've got to get busy crocheting again.  Can you believe that I started a shawl for Mom for Mother's Day in the car on the trip up her Monday.  *shakes head*  *sighs* 

    Look for pics of what I have so far by tomorrow afternoon on tomorrow's post.  Right now it is about 60 inches long and 2 inches wide. It takes me just under an hour to do two rows. Four rows equals and inch and I'm aiming for somewhere between 10 and 18 inches. I'm working a simple rectangle the long way so that I can stop wherever I reach by the wee hours of Sunday morning.  If it ends up being a scarf instead of a shawl, so be it.  I'm using the hand painted silk lace weight thread that I made my MIL's shawl with last year and using the same love knot stitch aka Solomon's knot.  Tho I won't be changing up the stitch size as I did before.  I'm making the knots about a third of an inch long which makes the mesh just right to stick my thumb through.
