Cindy

I know what you mean about the blogs that go on about everything other than knitting. After a while, I don't even read them anymore if they don't show much needlework! I am interested in knitting and crochet content, preferably with photos! :) May I also say that I read your blog daily because of the great knitting and crocheting content! Thanks and keep up the great work!

Wanda

I'm with you Bron. I love knitting/needlework. While I don't crochet, I find the things you do quite interesting with crochet. I'm mostly reading the blogs for knitting content. I enjoy reading about people's lives, but if it's mostly that and a little knitting, it will probably lose my interest. I read other blogs that are not knitting-related for that. Same things for those that talk mostly about spinning, I tune it out b/c I'm just not interested, b/c I don't spin and don't have plans to do so.

Farewell to Bob! It's good to know about the wear of CE. I just finished my Cabaret Raglan and am wearing it today. I washed it in the washing machine, but then laid it out flat to dry. Hopefully that lengthens the wear. if not, hmm, not so sure. Can't wait to see how your Scoop Du Jour turns out. I've been debating if I will make that or the Sitcom Chic sweater with more stashed C-E!

Bron

Thanks, Cindy - I appreciate you taking the time to read & comment. :) I really do try & talk about something knit/crochet related in each entry, even when I go off on other tangents. ::grin:: And yes, I've dropped a few blogs myself 'cause their content just wasn't what I was looking for.

Wanda - A friend & I have been discussing the "sameness" of the knitting blog world these days. The same issues, the same dramas, the same stuff just re-hashed time after time. I find I'm tuning out more & more these days.

I think it will definitely lengthen the wear of CE going the air-dry route. I've just always been too rushed & too lazy to take the time! (Bad, me!)

I'm always tempted to make another Sitcom, but it seems that other sweaters always jump to the head of the line. ::grin::

Here, here! on the bloggers that knit vs. knitting blogs.

I help Julie maintain the knitting blogs ring by checking a set of them every couple of weeks. Too many say "gee, I'm sorry, I'm not talking about knitting again"

Bron

Amy - Yeah, I thought it said something in the knit blog ring rules about talking about knitting most of the time, too. I think it's easy to have life get in the way & let the knitting talk slide.
