Here's the direct quote from my dashboard:
"Your new version of Blogger is ready!
The new version of Blogger now has all the original features you're
used to, plus new post labels, drag-and-drop template editing, and
privacy controls. And, it's a lot more reliable.
After you switch you'll need to sign in with your Google Account, but
your blogs will stay the same. Their content and layout will not
This is the message I got after I clicked:
"Could not switch you to the new Blogger
Thanks for your interest in the new version of Blogger! Unfortunately, we cannot switch your Blogger account at this time, because one or more of your blogs cannot be moved.
While the new version of Blogger is no longer in beta, some users with certain types of blogs
will not immediately be able to switch to it. We'll be adding support
for these blogs as soon as possible, so everyone can join in the fun."
The only thing I can think of that might be the problem is that since I belong to the Mason-Dixon KAL blog and Zimmermania ...that's why I can't switch. Oh well, at least I have had the chance to play and try out the new version with my new gallery.I must say I really like the new gallery much better than the old one, that I fudged previously here in my blog. No new knitting to show offthere yet, but soon...
I am presently still working on my prayer shawl, knitted the long way. I only work on this outside the house when I have to sit and wait. I'm probably a little more than halfway done with
this. It won't be much longer before it's finished. Just a few more doctor's appointments, private music lessons and basketball games!
My new knitting project is a baby blanket or afghan for a gift that I need in February. I'm using Joann's Sensations Rainbow classic yarn - pastel, which is very soft and cuddly. The pattern is my favorite because it is really easy once you've mastered it, but at the same time there is enough pattern changes to make it interesting.
The pattern was my Mom's. She wrote out the pattern on index cards. I'm not sure where the pattern originally came from. Here are the original cards:
She has scribbled notes on the front and back of the cards. Actually the way she wrote and used the cards makes it very easy to follow and helps keep your place until to memorize the pattern. I love the pattern, the cards and I especially love and cherish the memories of my Mom. I'm really trying to stay focused and finish this gift, then I'll be free to do what ever I want...can't wait!
