It seems to me that nobody's knit blogging any more. I went for a ride down my sidebar recently, and so many of them haven't updated in months! I also noticed that, ironically, an apology for a long blog break and an undertaking to blog more in the future is often a sign of a blog's finality.
I don't read parenting blogs (for a lot of reasons, but mainly because, quite frankly, I don't give a shit about how anyone else does it). I do like interior design blogs (I'm deeply shallow), don't mind a bit of food photographed well, don't like spinning either unless it's very well photographed - on the whole it's really only knitting blogs I like - and they're disappearing!
Not only that, the ravelry boards are boring me senseless lately. (I think they're WAY overmoderated - not just the Aussie ones, all of them - they'd be feral under my control no doubt).
I swear to you, if it weren't for iphone twitterific and my 'mad spend money on the internt skillz' (a phrase coined by Donna, stolen by me) - I'd be bereft. Really, it's very rude of all those strangers not to be more accommodating of my need for internet stimulus. Come back knitting blogs, I miss you!
Anyhow, in between dyeing and looking at the ageing final pages of so many knitblogs, I started a new project. It's completely different from anything I've knitted before and it's BURNT ORANGE.
I am knitting the Elvira, all grown up in Kurbis Wollmeise twin.
More doom and gloom : this internet shaping thing has been exacerbated by the rumblings of a computer about to die. There seems to be a bit of that around lately too I've noticed - computer death. It's not the buying of a new one that worries me (that might be fun actually), it's the remembering all those passwords and settings that will be the real hassle. What a pain!
