The adventure begins…

Posted on

After years of resistance, I am at last giving in to the urge to write about my knitting and sewing projects. Those who know me can attest to perpetual projects of some variety. Previously, I have kept these projects to myself or simply posted them on Ravelry with little commentary. Why start writing about them now?

In part, this blog is the result of my growing confidence in making things work on the internet. I don’t understand all the ins and outs of things, but I am convinced that I can muddle my way through.

But more importantly, I feel that I have something to write about. Since moving to Washington, DC this summer, I have been sewing up a storm and learning quite a bit along the way. I want to share what I have learned. Perhaps some of my solutions to specific sewing problems will help other sewers  in the way that many sewing blogs have helped me. Also, I have been feeling the absence of a centralized forum for discussing designs, asking questions, reasearching, and organizing sewing projects. When I was learning to knit, I enjoyed the resources of the then fledgling Ravelry. This blog can hardly fulfill all the functions that Ravelry does, but I will certainly help me keep track of my projects.

So, welcome to my adventures in making pretty things. I hope you enjoy your visit.
