Back in 2006, when I first started knitting, I created a blog for keeping a record of my knits: pattern notes, pictures, yarn notes, needles used, etc.
I had a second blog for posting my writing: a weird mix of article and journal where I would write about things that were bothering me or not adding up – as a way of working through it.
Not long after I started my knitting blog, a website came along that quickly became my new fiber home. It was an amazing database and storage facility where I could research patterns and yarns, as well as record all of my knitting adventures with photos and notes. And then….
Here I find myself, 13 years later, recreating my digital knitting records on a new blog. It feels a bit like going backward and yet I can’t help but feel relieved for various reasons.
(TRIGGER WARNING: I’m a fan of the Oxford Comma. I provide this trigger warning in jest and yet, in our current cultural state I would be zero-percent-surprised to learn that my use of the Oxford Comma gets someone riled up). This also serves as an example of my smartalecky ways which is not everyone’s cup of joe.
But mostly, this is a place for me to keep track of projects and record my work and photographs.
