My big project in 2013 was my living room (still work in progress!) and my big project for 2014 was to start a blog.
I’ve been blogging for nearly a year now! Before I started – I made the decision to do one blog per week, which posts on a Sunday. I thought this was a manageable amount for me to do and hopefully wouldn’t bombard you with too much to read!
At the start I found it a bit difficult to think of the things to say. I would often think that things weren’t interesting enough to write about. But the proof is in the pudding and some of my most simple blogs have been the most popular- such as Making Friends by Making Things and Doily Lampshade Fun! (because who doesn’t want to make a lampshade out of doilies?)
I find it particularly difficult to blog when I’m working on secret projects such as the John Lewis Monty & Mabel knit kit. If I’m busy working away on something, I really want to share it – but I’m not always allowed! So if I’m suddenly blogging a lot about my veg patch, there’s probably something exciting going on in the background (or it might just be a quiet month).
As the year has gone on, I’ve found it easier to decide what I want to write about and I’ve really enjoyed taking the time to share what I’ve been making and to see what you’re making as well. One of my favourite things about this blog is that I don’t feel restricted to one subject or medium because it all loops back to my love of knitting!
So thank-you for following my blog and thanks for your comments – especially when I made the jump and gave up the day job in July! I’m looking forward to another year of designing, making, workshopping and blogging and I hope to meet some of you along the way!
