It's two years today since I started blogging! How weird is that? I'm not sure what I set out to achieve (I wasn't sure then either), and managed to post 3 times on the first day as I didn't know how to upload photos, so they were done separately. Of course, in those dim and distant days Blogger didn't let you upload them directly so it was a little more complicated...
Back in those days, I'd just completed my first pair of socks, and was VERY VERY proud of them. Knit Lincs didn't exist, our first meeting was documented here. I was only working one day a week and had yet to start venturing out for working away from home and had only just started driving again (strange to think that, two years ago, I'd never stayed in a B & B - now I live in them!). Some things haven't changed much. Two years ago I was attempting to wean myself off Neighbours, and I'm still trying. Going out to work more does help, but when I'm working from home, guess what happens at lunchtime? (and what's with the bizarre London story-line at the moment?!)
I'm not really sure what I expected when I first started, the blog has documented the ups - the arrival of another nephew, completing my MA, graduating (under protest, but with knitting!), buying a house (and having a knitting party in the garden), going on various knitting courses, events and weekends (intarsia, finishing techniques, Skip North, the Knitting & Stitching Show, felted slippers in the Devon sunshine and Knit Lincs outing to Yarn), the Knitting Olympics and loads of holidays, and all the downs - having tonsillitis over and over and over and over again. Getting my tonsils archived, finally... How much progress I've made knitting wise. And the mundane (why did I feel the need to blog about porridge?!) And documenting the books I've read (discovering LibraryThing has also been a great help with this!). I don't think I expected to meet (and "meet") so many people - all the other bloggers in the sidebar plus some others, some of whom I've got to know in person too - meeting Anne (who I've only met 3? times but it feels like I've known forever), Blueadt, Andrea, Nic, Alex, Ruth Yvonne, and all the Skip North crowd. And of course the Knit Lincs gang: Nic, Kat, Claire, Dawn, Sara and the others who are blogless.
Golly. Do I get an award for most number of links in one post? Anyway, it's been a good two years. Here's to the next two!
