I know I was supposed to have posted this on the actual anniversary of my blog which was Friday, the 18th. But true to form that is my life, I am late and I apologize. My first day of classes and practice started today and I suppose I just got prematurely excited about it. So far, so good. The following is what I had written to be posted on the 15th, so please excuse the delay.
Today is the one year anniversary of my foray into knit blogging. What a year! I knit, I cried, and I ripped back quite a few things. I learned how to use DPN's, made mittens and socks (things I really wanted to do) and never finished a sweater. I knit for a boyfriend and for myself.
I figured out what blog rings are, and joined a few. I also figured out how to post pictures and make them look decent. I found neat knitting videos and traveled to NYC to see the Yarn Harlot speak and sign books. I won yarn from another knit blog, and even got presents from people I never met! (Thank you Sheila!)
I knit an ear flap hat, bought yarn from various locations throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida. I dyed yarn and rekindled love with old knits. I found old knits that I plan to turn into new knits. The past year has been a wonderful learning experience, and I'm glad I shared it with you. Or attempted to.
I hope that later this year, I'll have the ability to have a give-away, but right now, I don't have the resources.
Thank you for sharing the past year with me while I knitblog!
