    Hi Lisa!
    You are not alone with not following patterns very well. I do that. I think I know what is happening only to find out later I missed one small detail that sets everything off. lol
    That scarf is so pretty. How sweet of Stephen! He’s such a nice guy!
    I love the yarn club idea!

    I agree with you about the social networks. There are just so many of them out there! I’m not surprised people are excited about Google+, because people are always excited when a new one comes out.

    A few months ago it got too much for me; I didn’t have time for anything else. So, I made the decision to select just a couple of places where I can be found online and that will be that. I’ve been glad I did that ever since. I’m on Ravelry, I have my vlog, and I was on Twitter which I have pretty much replaced with Plurk. I feel like that’s enough so I still feel like I’m socializing, but it’s not overwhelming.

    I love your yarn by the way, and I’m going to be looking to see if you sell the bumble bee colorway in sock yarn. If you don’t have it I’ll just place an order. Not that you need to know that in your comments, but I was just saying I love your yarn and I’m not capable of saying that in just one sentence. lol

      Yeah, Plurk and Rav are my main social sites I’m on regularly. I still check in on FB a little, mainly for family stuff, but I don’t have that much time to be on more of them! LOL

      I definitely do Bumblebee in sock. I’m happy to do a special order for you!
