An interesting repsonse received from Blogger regarding the hi-jacked blog
Thanks for writing in. When you change your blog URL, the old blog URL
becomes available for other users to take. In this case, it seems like
another user has now claimed the blog URL http://mlqknits.blogspot.com/.
Unfortunately, Blogger does not reassign blog addresses
once they have been taken. I'm sorry about the inconvenience
to which I can only reply - gahhhhhhh! (not impressed)
However, it is the speed of what happened that really disturbed me, and also what they're saying doesn't seem quite right. In following the instructions from Typepad to save to a new filename, so as not to overwrite the main index, surely this is akin to saving a Word document with a new name, ie. you end up with two versions of the same document ...?
Think I probably have made the right decision to move blogs, though my timing is somewhat off (nothing unusual there really) - this couldn't really have happened at a worse time, what with the Steek Boa appearing in July's Simply Knitting magazine (due in UK shops tomorrow) ...
Thanks for the photo here go to Bronte, who won the 3rd prize with a gorgeous pink beaded scarf. if you've found me by now, all I can really say is, change your book-marks accordingly!
Meanwhile, had better get on with finding out how to update the sidebar here, am missing all my links quite badly, and it's all looking a little bare ...
