Better Knitter...Better Blogger...Really!

Truth be told, I've about given up becoming a 'Better Knitter', and by the looks of my Blog Stats the same could be said for my Blogging.   Oh sure, I have a list of excuses about as long as the last cast on I did for a lace shawl...several years ago.   I guess I'll have to call it finished since it's about as likely I'll knit or purl back across those kabillion cast on stitches as my going to Estonia.  I should have known from previous projects that called for really, really thin lace weight yarn and really, really, really, tiny needles on a really, really long circular thingy.  And, I really, really thought I wanted to be a Lace Knitter!  
So much for Vogue Knitting's 25 TIPS FOR FASTER KNITTING.

    1. If it doesn't sale, I will put it back in my stash and combine it with another yarn for a crochet project. As for giving up blogging...not in the near future. Thanks for the encouragement!

  2. Hi Sue! I think the knitting life is full of "a ha!" moments. I often say to myself, "Self, what on EARTH were you thinking? Really? No more pullovers for your chubby Pooh bod!" and other such things, but I do love knitting and there are happy knitting days and crabby ones. That yarn is lovely! Hasn't blogging changed? I loved it when I started (2009) because it was such an adventure in discovery, but it's still fun - just different.

    1. Yep, those moments happen often to me when picking up knitting needles. I'm soooo much better with crochet. Yes, blogging has changed so much since we first started. I too still enjoy blogging and bloggers.

  3. Don't worry about your blog stats, esp. during the summer. Mine have tanked - it seems everyone is taking a break from bloggers to those who read blogs.
    I've never been a knitter - perhaps because of my lefthandedness.

    1. It's true that summer is a stats tanking time. I don' really pay all that much attention to stats anymore. Like PomPom said...'Blogging has changed so much since we all started'. Left handedness is actually easier for knitting than crocheting. I bet you'd enjoy either one.

  4. stuff goes in waves. You've been a whirlwind with your store. I have no doubt the blog world will stay in your life, and those knitting needles will click again in winter. Too freaking hot now, I think!

    1. Yes, heat waves are not conducive to yarn crafts of any kind! Wow it's been blistering here in Texas. I agree...can't imagine not being in Blogland even if sporadically!
