I have been blogging for a while now and I must admit there are days I ask "why bother?" It is a good outlet for me and I do enjoy sharing what I've done/learned/observed. However, sometimes I still think that I am talking to no one THEN I get a comment like this from Eileen:
Thanks in part to your blog, I've taken up knitting after many years. I was in Micheals a month or so ago and came across some gorgeous teal wool on sale (my daughter's favorite color!)
I found a pattern for a cowl and made it up for her, and like your daughter she loves it!
Just the other day I was in a store and saw something similar on sale (on sale!) for $30. I paid less than $10 for the yarn which made me feel even more thrilled.
Your daughter looks lovely! Thanks for sharing.
It was the opening line that got to me - my blog got someone back into knitting. That is what blogging is about - sharing a passion. Thank you, Eileen, for reminding me why I blog. While I may not post on a consistent basis, I do try to write about things that share my passion for knitting.
