After all, as pretty much everyone knows, it’s a very good place to start. But when one begins a blog, what do we say that hasn’t been said many times before? I decided that the answer is not to worry about what others have said before. This blog is for me to record the things that I make and share those things with others who may find it interesting. That will make me happy
Over the last couple of years I have kept a list of the things that I have made on EverNote. It’s really fun to look back over the list and see how many things I made, it’s always more than I thought. Somehow having a long list of projects that I want to make always leaves me feeling that I’m running behind and I am not quick enough. I will add a post for each of the two years that I have recorded. Having at least one post for each project will be great, a big step up and to have a picture record of each item will make me very happy.
The other thing that has happened over the last few years has been discovering blogs in the first place. I am well aware that I am somewhat late to the party. Many blogs that I read have been going for years. Some blogs I discovered just before the people writing them seemed to get bored and moved away from the platform. Lots refer to their instagram feed, where they post a lot more. This makes me a little sad, I like reading the blogs. My best friend, L, started a blog about her hunt for a job. It was great, we live quite far apart and to get regular updates on what she was doing was precious. By the time she found I job I was already had quite a list of blogs I was reading and was pretty hooked.
Some of the craft blogs that I follow do things like link parties and share their projects with each other. Sew a longs, knit a longs, making things according to a theme, they all seem like fun to join in and this year I am going to try to. This is definitely a secondary goal though, so we shall see.
I have three knitting projects on the go, a cardigan, a jumper and the very beginnings of a Bee Keeper’s Quilt. I’m hoping to manage a blog post at least each time I finish a project. If you don’t know me and have stumbled upon this blog, thanks for reading. If you do know me, hi!
