My customers have been asking me for quite a long time why I don’t do a blog. Quite honestly, I wasn’t sure that anyone would really be interested in what I have to say :) Plus, exactly what would I write about? Did I really have anything THAT interesting to say? Would people actually “follow” me? Well, I guess we will see because…..here goes!!
Ah, but where do I start? Knitting has been a part of my life for…..well, forever. I taught myself when I was 9 because I wanted to learn and no one could teach a “leftie”. I then taught myself to crochet when I was 18! Little did I know what an important part of my life they would one day be.
I cannot imagine not being able to do either. They have become my refuge, my friend…my happy place to go. Knitting and Crocheting comfort me and sooth my soul. They keep me grounded and at peace with the world. You know the American Express Card ad saying “don’t leave home without it”….well, I never leave home without taking some project along with me. You just don’t know when you may have to wait some place for something (or someone) and, at least for me, waiting isn’t half so bad if I have something to do with my hands!! Many a project has been completed while waiting for kids at sport practices/games, doctor offices, hospital rooms…..you get the drift!
My yarn is the first thing that gets packed when going on a trip. Clothes and other items aren’t packed until usually the night before, but I begin planning on the projects to take as soon as a trip is in the works. And, of course, one can’t just take 1-2 projects; 10-12 perhaps….after all, one doesn’t want to run out of things to work on. Realistically, I do know that there is no way possible that I will ever get finished with all the projects I take with me, but it is much better to have too many than not enough! Plus, who knows what I will feel like working on at any given time?
My plan in writing a blog is to let you know what is going on in my little corner of the world…. from what I am working on, any new and exciting things in the shoppe as well as my life…..who knows where this will lead? :)
