Seven Years

Today is the seventh anniversary of my blog. Imagine that — I’ve been rambling on for all these years and haven’t run out of things to say. Interesting content my be thin on the ground from time to time, but that has never stopped me.

I do have a new project to show you today. Hey guess what? It’s socks.


The yarn is Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the “Whisper” colorway and I’m using my usual 2mm needles. The pattern motif is supposed to be a butterfly or dragonfly, depending on which you’d rather it was. I’m calling the design “Aimee” after a friend who has a fondness both for butterflies and the color pink.


Speaking of Aimee, the Aimee in question has posted a review of my upcoming sock book on her blog. You can check it out here. She’s got some nice sneak peak photos of the book’s innards and a good synopsis of what it’s all about. Thanks, Aimee!

I’m in the throes of one of my stealth projects, so this entry is brief. But I want to thank everyone who has stopped by to read and/or comment over the years this blog has been around.

Lucy sez:


Does the blog-i-versary mean I get a treat?

  2. Happy Blog-i-versary. I love stopping by to see both the socks and Lucy. Hope you’re here for at least seven more!

  3. Vintage 2002 was a very good year. Perhaps you find it as hard to believe as I do that seven years have been blogged about.

  4. Happy Blogiversary! I have been reading since the beginning and am always charmed/amused/intrigued.


  5. Congratulations on seven years, Wendy!

  6. Every day should be a treat day for Lucy! We give our kitty a treat every day, but she is a jumper and we make her work for it by holding the treats up high. She seems to really love the jumping around.

    Happy Blogiversary! I love your blog and even though I don’t comment (insert long explanation of why I am “too busy to comment” here). I have almost all of your patterns and have already pre-ordered the book. Will this pattern be available sometime as well (LOVE it!)?

  8. Thank You for the blog. I am only sorry I have only been reading for a year or so. It definatley deserves a round of treats for Lucy!
