Originally, I created this blog for the sole purpose of putting my first original pattern somewhere online. It was easier for me to stick the patterns on a blog and link back to it on Raverly, than trying to create a Raverly download. I was also naive enough to think that I'd have more time and willpower than I do, and that I'd have a ton of patterns to share with the world.
Yeah, didn't happen. What a surprise.
Anyway, I've been thinking. I've been putting all my trials and tribulations with my projects under my Ravelry entry for them. While this allows issues and other changes associated with the pattern to be easily found, some of my other...um...issues have been lost under some random project that ended up associated with it. As well, I've been inspired by reading a couple of established knitting bloggers in that maybe, just maybe, by posting my adventures in knitting and crocheting that someone will not make the mistakes I did, or at least be entertained.
Or it'll just give me an avenue to gab over where no one will really be listening. One or the other.
So I'm going to try and actually blog on this thing. I will try not to rant (I have a habit of rant-blogging; it killed another blog of mine). I will try to help. I'll try to post once a week. I will do my first post after this one. Worst case, I stop and this blog will again just be for my patterns. Best case, maybe someone will be educated, I'll make more patterns, and also find the time to edit this blog's layout. In between my long commute, 8-hour work days, my current apartment search, and the projects I'm working on. Yeah, that's it.
