Trouble with Trebles had a post last month about blogs, talking about how so many people are not into blogger as they were several years ago. I remember being so excited to discover the world of knitting blogs four year ago, and I've been a little sad to see so many people give it up. I understand, especially for people who put a lot of effort into their blogs, that there's a little pressure to have something of interest posted regularly. I'm still not entirely sure why I blog, mostly as a craft journal I guess. I really don't have any idea how many people read my blog, but I do feel a little pressure not to be too boring, and when I feel boring, I definitely don't want to blog. Case in point, this month hasn't been any busier than my normal, somewhat hectic life, but I've been uninspired, writing-wise. I blame elegant empire. I just didn't enjoy knitting it, and I'm not happy with my finished product. It was way too big after I blocked it, and then I decided to shrink it a little, which only worked out OK. It looks kind of cute on Paige, but she's not interested in it. Oh! and I forgot to make the button hole in the band, and I'm sure as heck not going back and fixing it. I almost don't feel like blogging about it now, but I'm going to, and then I'll give it to the Goodwill and forget about it.
Prairie Point Junction. I still have them up even though Halloween is long gone. I can justify the apple and pumpkin ones, but maybe I'm being a little eccentric keeping the ghosts, black cat, and Jack O'Lantern up.
