On the Needles is 4 years old! It’s potty-trained, running around, and getting ready for pre-school. It’s probably learning its letters and is getting the hang of drawing.
Or whatever 4-year-olds do. I’m not an expert in 4-year-olds.
But, It’s exciting! I’ve been at this way, way, waaaaaay longer than I expected to be when I started this back on 2013. I’ve written more patterns, and met more people than I planned. I’ve even turned this whole knitting/pattern-writing thing into an actual part-time job, which I never thought I could do.
It’s been fun, working on my writing skills and my knitting skills. I love sharing the projects I’m working on, and I especially love sharing my patterns. I love teaching you guys techniques and skills that I use every day (and I hope you like that, too!). I’ve even enjoyed learning how to take not-terrible pictures (sorry about today’s, though- it’s crazy foggy here, it’s almost 10, and I’ve still got all the lights on inside the house).
I’m going to keep going as long as I can still think about things to talk about. I hope you’ll be willing to come along with me. And, of course, please let me know if you have questions about anything, suggestions or ideas- I’m only one person with one brain, and sometimes it gets a little empty, so help is always appreciated.
Here’s to another 4 years!
