It’s been quite a year in my blog-i-verse. At the beginning of 2004, I was knitting Alice Starmore’s Abalone. At the close of 2004, I am knitting Koigu gloves and my own Lucy design. I designed nine sweaters in 2004 and knitted more non-traditional designs than I ever thought possible.
And I made lots of new friends, both in “real life” and online. All thanks to knitting blogs.
Almost all knitting blogs are personal blogs, non-commercial websites. The individuals who write them are just that: individuals. We are people who go to work at a job or raise a family. We have ups and downs.
While there have been lots of flames and criticisms floating around in the knitblog world lately, I think the positive outweighs the negative. I’m happy to be part of this community.
Lucy is getting a nap in before tonight’s celebration.
I’m knitting my second glove.
And spinning my Corriedale.
The mousse au chocolat is made, the shrimp creole is in progress. We’ll be breaking out the kir royales later.
Happy New Year! See you in 2005!
