Blog Instructions

We are so excited about our new blog but we realize that not everyone is familiar with using blogs. A blog (short for "web log") is a website where the authors can post messages (called "posts"). Then, readers (thats you!) can leave "comments." To do this, click the word "comments" under the post you want to respond to. This will take you to a page that has a box for you to type in. Simply type your comment in the box and click the circle next to "Other" below the text box. You can leave your real name (just your first name and last initial if you want!) or a pretend name. If you don't have a website, leave that box blank. Finally click on the "Publish" button and you are done! Other people will be able to read your comment and even respond if they want. If you ever decide that you want to get rid of a comment you posted just let us know and we can delete it for you! If you have any other questions stop by the shop and ask or email our website expert, Laura, at lbullins@bellsouth.net

So give it a try, click on "comment" right below and just leave us a message to say hi!

We would also like to invite you to send us your web addresses if you have a blog or website and we will put a link on our blog. Or, if you have projects you made out of Knit Picky yarn and would like to share pictures email us your digital pictures or bring your project by the shop and we will take a picture. We would like to make an online photo album with lots of pictures of customers' projects.
