It’s been months, but I can’t bring myself to say goodbye to blogging. If anything, I really want to get back to it. There are a number of things that prevent me from doing so. The first, of course, is time. I have a job doing electronic document review, which means that I spend my day reading emails on a monitor. So, naturally, coming home and getting online isn’t the most appealing idea in the world. But I really miss the community and the writing.
Another (self-created) obstacle are the related ideas that (1) all blog posts need pretty pictures and (2) I am completely incapable of taking the pretty pictures. I have what can charitably be described as a craptastic camera, no tripod, and highly limited skill. I love the blogs with beautiful photography (some examples: Brooklyn Tweed, just maryse, Posie Gets Cozy, Hello Yarn, and Smitten Kitchen), and I want to create the type of blog I like to read!
But I’m going to try to overcome these obstacles, because I so enjoy blogging as a personal journalling exercise. And I have so many things I’d like to write about.
Like knitting, of course! I’ve been working on a number of things, and recently finished this Breckenridge Cowl with Malabrigo Rasta. What a yummy yarn! I also have two sweater-type projects on the needles (three, if you count a long-hibernating bottom-up seamless yoke sweater). Just when I think I’ve embraced the fact that I am really a Small Project Knitter, I go and start a sweater.
