Ok, I Give

So here I am, not blogging. I've secretly been not-blogging here too. I'm doing the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in San Francisco in July, and Tuesday has been proclaimed "Boobie Tuesday"; I've been writing updates each week on what it's like to train to walk 39.3 miles over 2 days. I can't wait for my post the day after the walk - I'm going to call it 'Goodbye, Boobie Tuesday'. Heh.

But now I'm here too. I didn't think I'd ever get around to this. I always felt 'too busy'. I've come to realize that everyone else who blogs is probably too busy as well. And yet they do it anyway. So I'm going to give it a shot.

Knitting. That's probably what I'll write about the most, since it's what's on my mind a lot of the time. Love knitting. I'm definitely a process knitter - I just love to do it and I'm not especially attached to the things I make. This winter I made a commitment that for every item I knit for myself or family/friends, I'd make one item for Dulaan. I've managed to keep up with myself pretty well! Check 'em out:





As you can see, I'm a better knitter than photographer. I'll try to work on that! Anyway, it's getting late. It's Friday evening and I haven't had a glass of wine yet. What's up with that?

Knitting, spinning, and now blogging?? As they say, resistance is futile!

Oh Gwen (Anonymous). Don't say you're not going to do it. Now they're going to come after you. It happens slowly...friends suggest it...total strangers nod knowingly and say you're going to do it...these things happen over and over...and then one day that word 'maybe' enters your mind...ooh boy.

Well, look who's no longer "no-blog"!! Welcome to yet another time-sink!

I'll catch up eventually. We've had two power outages, a flood, and a snowstorm all within the past 3 weeks, plus I just drove back from Baltimore. I'll get back to blog news as soon as I've made some progress with unpacking and airing out wet rugs.

Becca said...

Woohoo! Welcome to the pack!

And you realize, of course, as soon as regular readers of other blogs you comment on (like, you know, that Harlot person's) realize you are no longer blogless...

Man, are you gonna get a whack of readers you don't know from Adam's off ox. Like me. ;) Hi there! Congrats! (We'll send the evil blogger membership card later.)
