For the coming new year I've decided to change my blog header and give some new attention to Fleece Love and Happiness. I have been drifting away from blogging even though I still spend all of my free time working with wool. I was, however, lazy about logging on and writing about my craft. At the same time I became unenchanted by facebook---all of that editing of one's life to make it seem so cute, funny, witty, thoughtful, bla bla bla. I was feeling like my blog existed in that way--- "look how awesome my yarn is, look at what I dyed, bla bla bla..." So I stepped back from the internet for a moment and took stock of what all of this means to me. I read other people's blogs and really enjoy hearing about what they are up to. I like to see their photos and their finished projects. I like to take photos of my projects and write a little bit about them. All of this is fine as long as it doesn't feel like a chore. Fiber crafts never seem like a chore to me and blogging shouldn't either. I'm still fired-up by spinning, dyeing, knitting, and all things wool! I want my blog to continue to be a place where I log my experiences with the crafts that I adore. I plan to keep snapping a few shots and writing a few words about what I love.
It's been a busy holiday season at work and I've only had a few hours here and there to knit. Usually when I'm having a coffee I can pull out my knitting and work a few rounds. I took a few photos of what I love: coffee and knitting!
I still like iced lattes in the winter.
