I decided this past fall that I simply couldn’t keep up with posting daily–real life had to come first. Yet, as I was looking through my blog today, I realized I really missed it. So I guess the answer is balance. I am going to try to post at least once a week. This may be crazy, as garden season is right around the corner, but I’ll figure it out. It might just mean one less thing gets knitted each week.
Speaking of knitting, I just opened an Etsy shop called Sixth Street Knits–just for the extra stuff I make. I feel a little silly because I’m not sure my knitting is good enough for someone to actually give me money for it, but people seem to like what I’ve been making. We’ll see what happens. One thing that I listed is the finally finished “Fiona’s Top” pattern. (See the post: The Saga of Fiona’s Top). It took me two years to get that sucker done–I frogged and reknit that thing so many times I should have at least half a dozen of them now. It may be a while before I attempt another–small needles + light yarn do not satisfy my instant gratification needs. Right now, I am making another little sundress for my cousin’s baby–bigger needles and less lace make for a quicker knit.
This year I want to find some balance between knitting and gardening. Last summer I hardly picked up any knitting because I was so into working on my garden plot and yard.
So there it is…a short post to get back into the swing of things on From Michigan to Montana. Feels good to be back!
