I admit, I’m not great at social media (so who knows why I decided to start a blog). I’ve got a Twitter account that I rarely use (@on_the_needles), except to notify folks on my new blog posts. And I tried to use Tumblr for about fifteen minutes before getting frustrated, closing the computer and making myself a cup of tea.
And, since it’s 2016, I thought, “Hey! Let’s try Instagram.”
Actually, I didn’t think that. When I took my class last month with Arne and Carlos, they kept talking about Instagram and told us all to Instagram them pictures of our finished dolls.
So, I got myself an Instagram account. It’s @ontheneedles. You should come on over and see what I’m up to. It’s mostly pictures of whatever I’ve got on my needles. So there’s lots of knitting-in-progress shots. (I tried being fancy on this one… not sure why I thought a half-eaten orange was fancy.)Like, a lot. Some of them are not great pictures, but hey, they can’t all be winners.Also, about a third of the pictures are of my dog, Ollie begging for food. Because he is ridiculous. Look at that pretty face!So, if you want to get little sneak peaks behind the scenes at On the Needles HQ, follow me on Instagram @ontheneedles! And let me know your name, and I’ll follow you back!
