Welcome to Mr. Puffy and Claudia's Blog!

Mr. Puffy and Claudia welcome you to their blog. While Mr. Puffy strongly suggested we take an afternoon nap, I insisted that we share some of the projects that we have enjoyed making (and wearing). Note the emphasis on "wearing." I used to be what is called a "process knitter" - meaning that I enjoyed the process of knitting more than actually wearing the finished garment. I am no longer a "process" knitter as I wear everything I knit - and try to wear something I knit every day (not easy living in Southern California). What changed me from a process knitter? It's a story that involves a moth and a project that took (off and on) three years to knit. I can't say more than that - it's too painful. I hope you enjoy the pictures of handknit items being worn and enjoyed!

Great socks, beautiful shawl and I love the lightblue 'thing'. And if it is you showing it, so nice to meet you like that.
May I give you some small advice? Try to make your photos smaller with f.e. Irfan View (free very good software: http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm).
And mr. Puffy is so cute!

I love the shawl in that color! Mr. Puffy: Welcome to blogland, make sure Claudia keeps it up :D

Claudia,

I just sent you an email regarding the CA Knitting Ring code. I couldn't leave it here for some reason. Let me know if you need anymore help. It's no problem.

Ok! The emails came back as failures. Let's try this again:
----------------------
Claudia,

After viewing your source code this is what I noticed that you were not hosting the picture on your own server. Because of this, the picture you uploaded using Blogger got separated from the ring controls. I put them back together.

Replace this section of code:

**a href="http://support.laurasbooks.com/calknit.html">California Knitting Bloggers**/a

With this code:
**a
href="http://support.laurasbooks.com/calknit.html">**img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/x/blogger2/2290/727425099752576/150/z/641355/gse_multipart5396.png"/>**/a

(put a < in place of the ** at the beginning and the end):

Test it out by viewing your blog and if it works then delete the old one. I tested it and it worked on my page.
------------------------

I must be really tired. The new code should be:

**a
href="http://support.laurasbooks.com/calknit.html">**img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/x/blogger2/2290/727425099752576/150/z/641355/gse_multipart5396.png"/>

Still change the asterisks ** with <. Remember to change this in the existing code block. Leave all the remaining code the same.

I have many pieces that I enjoyed knitting but have rarely worn. I like to make my kids wear the things I knit instead.
