On this day in 2004, Major Knitter was born. I began blogging and my knitting world has never been the same since.
I'm not sure what the best part of blogging has been for me:
- documentary of a large part of my life
- the many new friends I have made
- sharing the passion for knitting
The blogging world has changed over the years. Most blogs have faded. Only a very few continue. Ravelry has come.
One thing for sure is that my knitting has improved over the years. I have learned new knitting skills. I have learned that while I enjoy learning new knitting skills, knitting for the sake of knitting is no longer enough for me. I need to have a purpose for my knitting. So while I have learned to knit lace, I don't particularly like lace (either the knitting or the wearing of it), so I no longer feel the need to master the art of lace knitting. Another skill I have tried a few times, but have never completed, still remains on my bucket list. Yes - that would be a steek. I have knit the projects in fair isle, but have never crossed the finish line. It still eludes me (Mostly because I picked the wrong projects).
So this year of blogging will have a goal. I will endeavor to actually knit a project and successfully steek it.
Now that I'm a teenager, I think it's about time I take my knitting to the next level. Are you with me? What skill do you want to master this year?
