Knitting Blogs – Still A Thing?
This is kind of an irrelevant question for me…”knitting blogs – still a thing?” I have always said that I’d be blogging even if no one read my blog.
It Seems Knitting Blogs Are Still A Thing
Lately, the offers for free review copies of knitting books have dried up for me. Perhaps they didn’t like my reviews? It’s also possible that I hold no sway anymore with readers. If I don’t sell books for them, I’m just a liability. Right?
They list 14 “Top Knitting Blogs” and I made the list!
I also loved the description of my blog in their post and some of the reasons it was included. Stating publicly that they support the LGBTQ community as a company is an important statement for me.
The other reason I’m quite pleased with this is HiyaHiya’s reputation among knitter friends.
If you’ve ever heard me compare needles, you’ll know I love my Lykke Driftwood set of interchangeable needles. But many of the guys I knit with on Zoom for over a year raved about the HiyaHiya interchangeables (promotional link)…even those who also owned the Lykkes.
But just like I have changed my mind about ball-winders, I am open to changing my mind about interchangeables too. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to see the HiyaHiya’s in person at the Men’s Knitting Retreat in a few weeks.
Finn Friday Contest
Today is the final day to enter the Finn video contest. Just watch this short Finn video and count the number of photos of Finn in the video. Use the web contact form to send me a note with your answer to the number of photos, and you could win prizes.
I was able to finish the second Usonian Shawl…including weaving in ends and blocking.
Despite making two of these, one right after the other, I never got tired of knitting this design.
I was also surprised to find out I think I prefer the second colorway combination over the first.
Which do you prefer? Top or bottom?
