New for 2009

The back and two fronts of my vest are finished and have been joined by three-needle bind off at the shoulders. Today I will sew the side seams and begin knitting the band along the armhole edges. The job of seaming will be all the more fun using my new Gingher scissors adorned with cross-stitch fob. My neighbor gave these to me for Christmas and I love them!

The photo above is being featured today on my photo journal, One Snap. It's a blog based on Project 365. The idea is to take and post one photo, every day, for a year. One Snap will be my primary place to blog in 2009.

Posting here at Wool Windings will be sporadic and will most likely be about knitting only, perhaps only photos of finished objects with details posted on Ravelry. I'm still debating what I want to do.

I've considered using Ravelry exclusively as my knitting journal, but there is a part of me that's not ready to give up this blog entirely and that's because of all the friendships I've made here. So, I'll experiment with a couple of ideas until I find out which works best for using my time wisely--one of my goals for 2009.

  2. I would miss your knitting blog if you didn't do it anymore but I understand needing to move on. I have struggling with something like that myself. Seems like lots of folks are making changes this year. I will still check the site to see any knitting you might be doing.

  9. I guess blog land does take up a lot of time, it must run at twice normal speed, but I would miss my visits here for sure.

  11. Ravelry makes it so easy to track our knitting. I see it drawing people away from knit blogging every day. My days of stitching are over, but your little fob is enticing.

  12. Your neighbor is very thoughtful; the fob and scissors are perfect gifts for a crafter.

    Please leave a trail of bread crumbs so I can follow you to your new blog, or posting site.

  19. Lovely fob and look at those tiny stitches!

    I too am doing Project 365, just haven't blogged about it yet (running behind on my blog and visiting others - must be holiday hangover!). Good idea to start a new blog for it. So far i've just uploaded my pictures on Flickr.
