Yoo-Whooo!

It still surprises me a little bit that anyone reads my little blog.  It surprises greatly that non-knitters read it, specifically my family (hi everyone!)

Two weeks ago Kathy asked us about the people outside of our knitting circles who read our blogs.  Two weeks ago I would have thought that the list would be quite small.  When I started my blog I think that I told only my co-workers, a couple of friends, and my parents (one of whom thought that it was called a "blob").  I didn't expect word to get around.  It's not that I hide the blog, I simply don't bother non-knitters about it.  I mean, it's a knitting blog.  Why would it be interesting to anyone who doesn't knit?  And yet, my family reads it.  Awww....

No knitting update today.  I apologize to those of you who left comments over the weekend to which you have not received a response.  Between the holiday and the time suck of setting up a new blog I am behind in emails and commenting (but I am reading).  I spent a good part of the day yesterday wresting boxes into a Toyota (oh, how I miss my hatchback!) hauling them up to the second floor and assembling a bookcase.  I'm beat!

Hat blocking pictures tomorrow. 

 

What new blog?

I don't believe I've commented, but I read (and enjoy) your blog. I found out about it from another blog I read (can't remember which one right now...)

I have to laugh, Blob... My mother can NOT remember "blog", I *always* have to refer to it as Web Journal, or she says, what's blog? So, I say, write on, you have readers! :) (In fact, I am considering knitting the Celtic Cap... Hmmm. Project #712...)

I just wanted to say that I'm still pretty novice at knitting and just now getting into projects other than scarves. I found your blog on my Yahoo page and it's been really helpful and entertaining! I think you may have even more readers than you thought. I'm in Chicago, by the way.

I read your blog! I am a beginner knitter - just knitted my first 3 dimensional object last year (a sweater!) in Manos del Uraguay.

I just wanted to say I love reading your blog, too. Maybe one day I'll start one of my own lol. I found you on my Yahoo page and I'm from Chicago as well....spooky....

Keep writing, girl!

I too am a novice knitter who connected with your blog from my Yahoo page. I'm from a small town south of Washington, D.C. Your blog inspires and teaches, so keep up the good work!

Hi - just wanted to say that I try to read your blog every day and really enjoy it! I am a beginner knitter and spinner in Calif.

Oregon here. I read your blog first every single day. You have been a big inspiration to this beginning knitter and spinner. I plan to start a blog sometime in the new year. I hope as many people read mine as yours.

Hiya there :)
I read your blog as well, but you know that by now hahahaha. It is the one I read last... as I'm saving the best for last! I've learned a lot from your blog and wish I was such a good blogger (ie blog every day).
I don't remember how I found your blog, but I think it was when I was clicking on links to blogs on someone else's blog.

Cheers Eva

I'm a born again knitter. Took a twenty year break to learn a few other crafts, but I'm back now... in no small part thanks to you. Found you at my yahoo. I love reading along and seeing how your projects are going. Oh, and I'm in Northern California.

whoa, they're out of the woodwork now! It's nice to have fans ;)

Your blog popped up on my Yahoo page one day. So, I saved it and check it out everyday. I am impressed with how much you get done. I only manage a couple projects a year.

Same here. One day your blog appeared on my Yahoo page and I saved it. You're at the top of my "MyYahoo! page, girl! Through you I started reading At My Knits End and a couple of others. I check in here every morning before I start my day at work.

Oh, I'm in Los Angeles. :)

I also got to your blog from Yahoo! and soon discovered Stichy Mc Yarnpants and Knit's End and Yarn Harlot etc. I've not been in amy "virtual comunities" before and was just tickeled I guess to stumble across such cleaver, thoughfull and funny knitters in cyber-space. I'm starting to blog a bit myself. and will be posting my knitting projects as a way to work on FINISHING things. I'm on vacation now but when I get home I think I'll take a picture of all my unfinished knitting things. Thanks Subway Knitter!

My fmily reads my blogtto, it kind of sucks becuase when I want to vent, I censor myself, but it's good in a way in case anything came back to me - best to keep it plain I guess.

Hi! I'm another one who found your blog on MyYahoo one day, and added the link to my page. I've enjoyed reading your adventures, and now also read several others (Yarn Harlot among them) as well as some of the knitting communities on LiveJournal. I'm in The OC (although I'd never heard Orange County, CA called that until the tv series, which I've never watched).
Knit On!
