I keep trying to submit an entry about the jacket I just finished, with photo attachments, and I get a message that I've triggered the spam filter block! Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

Finished jacket from hell

I finally finished a jacket that I've been working on for three years. I don't like stranded knitting--I'm slow, dropping the yarn and picking up the other one rather than two handed.

Finished Baby Blanket

I'm a relatively new knitter (just started in November) but I'm definitely addicted!

I'm back... maybe

In about 5 months I have knit a total of 1 foot on a simple ribbed scarf, which translates to knitting about 10 rows once a week or less and months at a time where I haven't knit 1 stitch.

Trouble with motivation . . .

I am having a hard time getting motivated this weekend. I want to work on a scarf for a good friend, but I can't seem to get cracking.

After THREE long years - It's done

THE MOST DIFFICULT PROJECT THAT I'VE DONE IN MY LIFE - Hazel Carter's Sample Stole.

I had to blog right away because after 3 long years, it is finally off my needles!!! Since I don't really have the skill to take professional photographs anyways, I decided to take the pictures while it's blocking.
