Happy 2013!

It's a new year, time for a change - starting with the look of the blog.   Change is good, change is necessary.

I don't have any knitting to show or tales to tell, I just wanted to pop in to give thanks.  

Thank you Aylin for helping me set up this blog.  I'm sure I said it before, but it's worth mentioning again.

Thank you Sojourn Knitter for helping me keep my sanity while trying to fix the blog messes I've made!  Thanks for your generous donations to me and the knitting circle and for dragging all the way to SOAR with me because it was on my bucket list - not yours.  You're a great friend.

Thank you Monika, for your humor, creativity and inspiration.  When I see what you do almost every day on your blog, it inspires me to keep going.

Thank you to the Soundview Stitchers who make my Saturdays a joy.  Your friendship, inspiration and support have meant the world to me.  I'd also like to thank Junior who not only talks us up to strangers, but for your awesome pineapple upside down cake!  You're the man!  (Have you ever considered learning to knit?)

Thank you to all the bloggers and podcasters who teach, inspire and make me smile.  I learned from you how to knit with beads, what to do with leftover yarn from spinning, and how to read those sometimes confusing Japanese stitch symbols.  

And to my readers, I appreciate your support - you'll never know how much.  Thank you for the comments and the emails.  Though most of you are as silent and church mice, I know you're there and it's inspired me to keep going.  

A special shout out to Joyce G. and Tracey M. - y'all should really set up a blog page of your own because your projects are awesome and I'm sure folks in blog land would love to read all about it!

I'm also grateful to have access to Ravelry and Etsy because I've gotten some wonderful stuff from those sites and I believe in supporting the independent business folks making a living through crafting.

Happy New Year to you all!


  1. Oh that's well said! I love your humour, and reading about your misadventure, and successes. Just the other day I had to think of you, because I've had left over yarn. Yarn I want to be gone, but no matter what I knit with it, there's still left over yarn! :o)
    Happy New Year, Sharon!

  2. Happy New Year! Your fiber zeal, exploits and challenges are an inspiration. Thanks for being a faithful blogger!
