Can you believe it? I’ve been at this blog for 5 years!
That’s absolutely nuts! I don’t really know how long I expected to keep this bad boy going, but it certainly wasn’t 5 years. It’s been a huge learning experience for me- the patterns I write today are head and shoulders better (or at least less full of typos) than the ones I came up with in 2013. I’ve learned a lot about my style of knitting/designing, and I think I’ve become a better writer and teacher. You kind of have to get better when you work on the same project three days a week for 5 years!
Of course, On the Needles is going to start changing a little bit, what with the whole “baby-on-the-way” thing, at least until I get my feet under me. Starting next week, I’m going to switch from my usual 3 posts a week to a slightly less insane twice-a-week schedule (Monday and Friday), to give me a little slack so that I can get some posts prepped so that when I have to go on parental leave, I won’t leave you blog-less.
It’s going to be crazy to see what the next 5 years has in store! Talk about changes!
