Hello hello! Wow, it has certainly been awhile hasn't it? (Only about 2 1/2 years but who's counting right?)

Honestly I wasn't too sure if I should start this again. There doesn't seem to be many of any at all readers of this little blog. Most people have moved on from LiveJournal in fact.

Wish I could say things have been far too busy all this time to update or that I've been working on some super secret sort of projects. Yet neither is true - I'm still just the same ole boring knitter I've always been. In many ways things haven't changed. I still enjoy coming up with my own blend of patterns, still need to have "finishing days" for when the stack of projects needing the ends weaved in grows too big, and still forget to take pictures many times before sending the finished project to wherever it needs to go.

So then, why come back? Why blog again? Because if there's one thing I know about myself it's that knitting is something to be shared. Do what you love and share it with the world (is that a saying? I'm making it one.) And truth be told there is quite a bit to be said - techniques I've learned, tricks and tips I'd love to share, and goals galore.

So here we go again folks. And as always, happy knitting!

Learning Experience

I'll be the first one to admit it - I make mistakes. Yep even after seven years of knitting and too-many-to-count projects, still I slip up from time to time. They pop up occasionally, I think, as a way of waking me up, or making sure I'm actually paying attention. It's a nice life lesson, no?
