Organize, Minimize, Socialize with a tad of Conspiracy Theory

September 16, 2007

‘Not one to jump on the proverbial bandwagon, this serves as an experiment for me… a place to organize and document my passions. If you have happened upon my pages, I extend my warm wishes and I do hope you come back again.’ ~Destiknit first Post

So, maybe I should retract my first entry because I have been waiting to get into Ravelry for awhile now.

Not because it is the cool knitter thing to do but simply for the following reason: I would love to be a dummy and use their site to organize my passion. Yes fellow knitters, I am a lazy bean – but selectively so. Alas, waiting has proven to be too much for me and so, I must take the sheep by the horns and organize here at WordPress. (Thank you WordPress)

So I have thought of my goals here at WordPress and the first is to organize, for certain. In organizing, I hope to minimize my stash and, by documenting it all here, I hope to socialize with fellow knitters – guys and gals, novice and experienced.

Indulge me if you will, I have a rant…

I have been drooling over IK Fall 2007 since they previewed online and announced Eunny Jang as new Editor. I made sure my subscription was current *check* I outlined my favorite pieces and listed called for yarns and made my own substitutions *check* I wait for the mail everyday hoping to see that low luster, beautiful bound paper orgasm sitting in my mailbox *sob* To date, nothing. I know it is not an error of Interweave Press, they mailed it – I checked. I am beginning to wonder if the mailperson(s) are knitters and suspect they too have coveted the new IK edition and have formed a conspiracy against me. Updates to follow….
