Knitting blogs rock. So much so that I spend a significant amount of time reading good ones and looking for more. It’s funny how you actually feel like you get to know someone through their blog; like you’re making a new friend and that’s always great in my book. So, as promised, today I’m posting a list of blogs that I personally enjoy.
Let me just say that there are SCADS of knitting blogs that I haven’t run across yet, so this list is by no means all-inclusive. I’m sure it will continue to grow. So here are my favorite knitting blogs so far in alphabetical order:
North of 49 (love. this. blog.)
Most of these I found on ravelry.com because they have a special forum for bloggers. Of course, you can always Google knitting blogs as well but I haven’t had the time to weed through what I’m sure would be a gazillion results. I’m still working at getting my blog listed at BlogNation but I’ve hit a couple of snags and I’m not sure they know what to do with me since it appears I’m the only one in the universe that’s ever had this problem. O_o Yep, that’s my life.
Tomorrow, I’ll post a list of some things I’ve learned during my short time blogging about what keeps someone like me coming back for more. I was going to post them together, but then I found I was violating one of the things I think makes a good blog (don’t make your posts too long). So...
Meanwhile, I didn’t post a picture of the sock yarn I was so excited about, so here it is. It's Shibui Sock which is 100% superwash Merino and the color is Dragonfly, #1601. I still haven’t started, but the good news is the never-ending Christmas blanket is finished and I’m about half-way through the back of Christmas sweater #7. I’ll post a pic of that WIP tomorrow.

What are your favorite knitting blogs?
It takes some time for BlogNation to recognize your blog. It's kind of a weird process that I definitely don't understand, but I had the same problem. I saw yours listed today though, under new blogs, and boosted it :)ReplyDelete
THANK YOU!!! I really appreciate it! I can't even seem to get the knittingblogs.org site to load at all. :-( I'm not giving up!Delete
Thank you so much for naming me as one of the blogs you enjoy reading! You are so right about feeling like you know someone through reading their blog. I'm glad I found your blog this past year and look forward to reading your next instalment on what keeps people coming back for more. I know a couple of times I have actually lost a follower, and I really beat myself up over it. I wondered for ages why they had decided to stop following me. I think sometimes it takes thick skin to be a blogger. :-)ReplyDelete
I love your sock yarn!
Kristie, it has been a real joy getting to know you through your blog! I think you're right though, it does take thick skin to blog. Hard not to take it personally when you're not someone's personal cup of tea. :-/Delete
Thank you for listing my blog as a blog you enjoy reading! Nice to know that someone besides my mom is reading. ;)ReplyDelete
And Shibui is so lovely to knit with! Can't wait to see what you do with that yarn.
I don't think my mom reads my blog much... :-/ I really do enjoy your blog! Just found it recently on Ravelry.Delete
