It’s been a long time! I was active on this blog for a little over a year, and my last post was February 2016. I may not have been blogging during the past 4.5 years, but I have been crafting. I’ve had a lot of life changes since then, too:
- Moved across the country
- Had a baby (who’s 2.5 now!)
- Bought a house
- Started a new job
- Having another baby in November
Whew, that’s a lot of change! I haven’t always been consistent with my crafting progress (especially when taking care of a newborn!), but I have continued to enjoy the creative process of making things by hand. More than the final objects that I create, it’s the process that keeps me coming back for more. I love all the steps: the excitement of planning out a new project and ordering supplies, the calm meditation of working on it for days, weeks, or months, and finally the satisfaction of completion.
So what’s next for the blog? I have a backlog of finished projects from the past few years that I’ll be highlighting in upcoming posts. After I’ve worked my way through those, I’ll do my best to add new projects as I complete them. I will continue trying to use up yarn from my stash, but…
One thing that is certain is I won’t be clearing my stash again anytime soon. I am currently in the nesting phase of pregnancy, which for me is manifesting as an intense desire to buy all the yarn for all the projects. I’m trying to plan out real projects rather than buying yarn randomly, but I’m definitely acquiring yarn faster than I can knit it. It’s probably good right now, though, during the coronavirus pandemic, for my main hobby to be something easily done at home.
Thank you for reading! I’ll be back soon.
