Over the past few weeks, while I was without knitting project, I have had a plenty of time to think about this blog I started in April 2007.
I embarked on this blogging adventure because I just could not stop thinking about knitting and needed an outlet. Inspired by bloggers such as Eunny Jang, I decided to to give it a try to. See how I would like it…
And here I am, 2 years later, completely baffled that you all have visited my little blog over 68,000 times.
Ever since I started, I never did anything to spruce up the look of this blog. I figured content would be much more important than anything else, and paid no attention to “looks”.
Methinks it is time for some sprucing up around here. Let me ponder about this one a bit more and I will get back to you!
As for knitting: Army of Poppies
After a couple of weeks of being without project, I finally picked up my own Poppy pattern and just started to knit. What joy they give me…
Although simply and small, this little poppy gives me so much joy knitting them. I just feel good making them and I have to refrain myself from screaming everytime I finish yet another one.
Many a times, somebody would walk up to me and ask me: “What are those? Why are you knitting those? What will you use them for?”
If people see me knit a scarf, sweater or hat, all is fine. When they see me knit a poppy, eyebrows are raised and questions are asked.
I am make my poppies for no particular reason. I make them because they make me happy. And I am going to knit a whole army of them and set them free in the world around me. My brave little poppy soldiers will be spreading their cuteness and love all over the place!
What will you use the poppies for?
How about using the poppies for embellishment on a gift basket? Cute or what???
A close up you want? Sure:
Sigh…so precious they are to me!
