1. I have been falling back in love with knitting. All I want to do all day is knit and read about knitting. I find myself searching Ravlery for my next project and then surfing the web for new knitting blogs.
(Side note: most of the knitting blogs that I have come across don't keep my attention very long because the blog design is usually not that great and the photos are too small. People spend so much time making these beautiful knit goods and then let all the beauty get lost in bad photos. I feel that if you spend hours upon hours on a project you would want to let it shine in photos. But that's just my opinion...)
2. My revived passion has gotten so intense that I have even been dreaming about knitting lately. I made a list of knitting related blog posts, pattern designs and ideas for my next challenge (coming tomorrow). Yarn is my (old) new obsession and every time I go into the yarn shop I spend more money than I should and the Husband does not complain. I don't feel bad about the money being spent because I have been doing so much knitting. Before when I would buy yarn, the yarn would sit around in my stash for weeks, months and sometimes years.
3. My stash is less than half the size it used to be and that is a GREAT thing. One of my many projects is to go through my yarn again and donate, trade and/or sell more yarn. The only part that is going to be hard is that the yarn that is left in my stash is all really nice and very pricey and I am not going to want to part with it.
4. I have been slowly updating my Ralvery account. This site is so cool and keeps track of everything for you. I like to say it is the Facebook for knitters. I would like to get old projects from Polka Dot Robot uploaded in the project section and any other ones that might be missing. I also need to upload my yarn stash and all the needles that I own.
5. One of the most exciting things for me is that The Husband wants to learn to knit. At first I thought he was joking with me, but he is totally serious!
I love knitting and knitting loves me (sometimes)!
