It’s been over a week since I’ve written a post and I feel so bad!
I’ve been working hard on two new knitting patterns, and I’ve been so focused on those that I haven’t thought to write anything. But I do have a project that I’m finishing up and excited to share. Hopefully that will be up within a couple days.
In the meantime, I’ve been thinking really hard about which direction I want my blog to move in. Of course I intend to continue posting patterns, projects, and general yarn-related chitchat, but I’ve always been the type of person who wants to help others. I wanted from the beginning to use my blog to help others in some way, and I think that a plan is starting to form.
It wasn’t very long ago when I found myself venturing into the yarn section for the first time. I can remember clearly how I felt when I came face-to-face with all the brands, types, and weights that were for sale. It was intimidating, to say the very least.
I felt the same way when I first started looking at knitting needles and, to a lesser extent, crochet hooks for the first time. Luckily, I had someone to help me out with my first knitting choices, but I can’t even count how many times I’ve seen people struggling in the craft store as the sales associates tell them that they have no idea how knitting/crochet works. (I’ve stepped in and helped people before because I felt so bad that they couldn’t get any help!)
I guess here’s where I’m going with this: I want to start a series geared toward helping new yarnies find which way is up when they take the plunge into knitting/crochet. I don’t how many people I can help with my little blog, but even if it helps out a couple people, it’s worth it to me. 🙂
I still have a bit more planning to do, but I’m thinking that I’ll make my first beginner series post in the next few weeks. I’m really looking forward to writing it, and I hope that it goes well~<3
