In that spirit, I'm making a rather bold move for me, the writer who likes to keep things neat, tidy, and compartmentalized and I'm combining all of my blogs into one blog - writing about whatever makes my little heart happy (just like in the good old days of blogging).
I'm very blessed to be a web content writer for a handful of sites but writing for those websites plus having multiple blogs of my own ... well, it all started to feel very watered down. I don't like feeling drained by my writing. And, I don't like sending folks hither and yon to read my words.
Slowly, but surely, all of the posts here will be moved to K.ElizabethFleck.com and I hope you'll come visit me there for more creative living, poetry, musings on mothering, and doodles about small town living.
However, I will maintain ownership of this site, so anything you have bookmarked here will also stay here. Rockin' Granola was my first real home on the internet and I'm keeping this precious old scrapbook in the family, so to speak.
Eventually all of my blogs' content will be moved to one central space, K.ElizabethFleck.com. I hope I'll see you there.

This cooler weather here in Indiana this weekend helped to put me in an Autumn kind of mood. I was also feeling the need for a quick, big needle kind of project after all of these shawls and fingering weight projects I've had in my project bags lately.
So, Friday afternoon, when I found myself with a bit of unexpected free time, I cast on for the Up Down Infinity Scarf.
I had a few free hours to work on it off and on as the weekend went along and I completed more up and down ridges.
The whole time I was working on it I kept thinking of my jean jacket (which I've had f-o-r-e-v-e-r .... isn't it nice to have a piece in your wardrobe that is like an old friend?) and my new burlap feed bag from Target.
I think this chunky infinity scarf is going to be the perfect Autumn accent, in its funky Psychotic Pumpkin colorway.
Can't you just picture a bright orange scarf with this?
And a Boston Terrier on the leash?
And a gang of wild children following along?
The yarn is stash yarn which I purchased ages ago from See Jayne Knit Yarns on etsy (one of my favorite shops).
The pattern is the Up-Down Infinity Scarf. Isn't the little garter stitch tab with the buttons a cute detail? I think that might be my favorite part.
Another weekend and I think I'll have a new scarf waiting for me just in time for the looming Autumn weather.
