Ravelry!!!October 18, 2007
I opened my ‘inbox’ expecting to see the usual emails from Knitting Daily, YarnSwaps.com, Bills, junk mail, etc. And then I saw it … Ravelry. Like many, I had been waiting to join that wondrous site, but the wait had proven too much for me and so, I started this blog. This blog has been a great outlet for me, I can ‘share’ my knitting and get great feed back as a result. I have also found this blog to be a superb motivator for me, I mean, I actually finished 3 UFOs in a week! I did get my stash, WIP, UFO, FO and TBK cataloged in pages here that you may never see but, Oh!, Ravelry! I literally just created my account profile. It is pretty much a bare site, similar to this blog a few weeks ago.
To address a few items:
Will I continue keeping this Blog?
You betcha! I have enjoyed this blog. I have learned a lot through this blog and it will continue onward. I have ‘met’ some great folks already and I hope to meet more!
To commenter and the general public:
I am but a humble hand knitter. I love the feel of the fibers. I love the grain of my bamboo needles. I love the colors of the fibers. I enjoy the process of swatching as a test run. I am a knitter. I am a turtle knitter. That is why I have this blog. I am not writting a book. I am not a designer (not for the public). I do not spin yarn. I do not paint yarn. I do not own an LYS. I do hope to create a pattern or two and post them FREE OF CHARGE. I think knitting is a wonderful art and should be available to all. To the one commenter, I too have opinions, just like you. Feel free to comment any time.
