I learned how to knit at a young age; maybe five or six years old, I can’t quite remember. However, knitting didn’t become a passion of mine until I was about 20 years old. Ravelry appeared soon after that, and I loved keeping a record of past and current projects for others to see, as well as checking out what other people were knitting. I didn’t have a camera, so I would borrow one from a friend or use my cellphone camera (once those became more common. Can you even find a phone without a camera nowadays?) Anyway, over the past year or so, it’s been painfully obvious that as my knitting skills and choice of projects have matured, so have my expectations of what constitutes a photo worthy of online submission. So, these past few days, I recruited (or bullied, it depends on how you choose to word it) my youngest sister Rebekah into modeling for me so that I could finally update my Ravelry photos. Isn’t she adorable? Of course she is. She just graduated from nursing school. I feel the need to share that piece of info.
Ravelry used to be the only way to share WIPs or FOs with other fellow knitters but with the magical World Wide Web and all its glory, it’s become quite easy to view and participate in Yarn Alongs via blogs and other sites. I’m going to choose one that I like, and try to participate as much as possible. I think it will be fun and will give me a chance to discover new blogs.
Because putting off housework and reading blogs all morning in my sweats is what I do best.
If you want to see more photos of my knitting projects, check out my Ravelry page. I will be updating all my old photos over the next few weeks!
