Well, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? It’s been nearly a year and a half since I’ve blogged about anything I’ve made. It’s not like I haven’t knit anything in these past eighteen months – I most definitely have, and a lot of it. If you’re interested in particulars, check out my Ravelry projects page here, and you can see all of the awesome things I’ve made for myself and others. I’m not going to go into details of each, but after this, I’m going to be posting about them more individually. I would do it now, but I’m at work and don’t have access to my photos. (Ridiculous, right? But a girl’s gotta make a living, especially to support her crafting addiction.)
But why am I back now? A friend of mine was on my Facebook profile doing that creeping thing we’re all completely guilty of, and when she saw my blog listed under my website link, she noticed that I hadn’t posted in over a year. Well, we couldn’t have that, now could we?
I’d been avoiding blogging for a while because of the weird sense of obligation I felt surrounding it, but that feeling was connected to my non-knitting related blog. I got into a state of mind in which I couldn’t help but compare the number of posts I made and the level of coolness of the things I posted about to everyone else who posted about their super awesome and overly interesting lives. And when I didn’t have anything as “cool” or “fun” to post about, it was a major let down. But after remembering this blog, and how much I’d enjoyed posting the photos of what I was making and seeing all of the other things people were posting, I decided to come back. So here I am!
I’ve decided to instead start fresh on my blog from this point on. Even in the past year and a half, my knitting and crocheting technique has improved tons, and I’ve been taking on much more interesting and unique knitting projects. Most importantly, I finally allowed myself to get out of my comfort zone and admit to myself that, yes, I can tackle those “intermediate” and “experienced” level knits that I somehow convinced myself were too difficult. (And to anyone thinking the same way, please try them anyway.)
I’m looking forward to sharing my knits with you, and I can’t wait to see yours!
