I want to apologize for not posting more regularly. I been quite sick with flu variants since early December and have been cutting a lot of activities in favor of more naps.

The other reason I haven’t been posting as much is that I’m at a transitional period with this blog. What I’d like to do more of is writing about my own designs as they’re in progress, but that requires two things—

1. Getting better at the photo end of blogging, so I don’t have to pester Melissa to do it for me.

2. Getting going on a real attempt to try selling some of my patterns via Ravelry or a similar source, so that I don’t need to worry about the hush-hush rules that most venues (on-line and magazines) have.

It may take a while for me to make this transition, but I think the blog will be interesting once I do. Whether or not readers have any interest in purchasing my designs, I’m hoping they’ll enjoy learning more about the design process—all the swatching, playing, fogging, and fine-tuning that it involves.

  1. Oh! I’m so sorry you’ve been fighting the flu bugs. Sending you healthful thoughts and looking forward to your new blogging direction. 🙂

  2. I can thoroughly recommend a Nikon D60, the perfect interim camera for the amateur photographer.
    The way to blog knitting, is to think photo first then text afterwards. If I have no photo then I don’t blog.

    I doubt many people read my blog so really it is just like a record for myself of what I have done. But, if people did drop by, what they really want to see (most of them) is finished projects.

    I don’t put may WIPs up, because they can be boring photos unless it is showing off something tutorial.
    And…..if you have anything really juicy and tutuorial, chances are you should hide it and put it in a pattern.

    Plus….you don’t really want everyone to know how you did it do you? Cos they will be doing it too and probably put their patterns up for free…..thus competing you out of the sales market.
