Yup. I have come to the end of my ideas, or at least the list of ideas I keep on my computer.
I have a spreadsheet where I keep notes about the blog, and a schedule of what I’ve been writing about. I try to keep the posts pretty balanced between techniques, tips, patterns, and “Cool stuff I found online.”
And, well, the “Cool stuff I found online” category seems to have been winning lately.
That, and my list of topic ideas has gotten frighteningly short. So, instead of drinking a lot of coffee and putting in the actual work of coming up with new ideas, I shall extend an invitation to you guys: What do you want to see more of? What do you want to see less of? Is there a topic you’re dying to learn more about? Should I talk more about the projects I’m knitting on, or could you care less? Do you want to learn about finishing techniques? Or are you interested in varieties of yarn? Did you see a pattern for a hat that you love, but can’t decipher? Or do you want my super secret recipe for blackberry pie? (Well, tough! You can’t have it. It’s secret.)
Let me know what you want to see, and we’ll get the ball (of yarn) rolling on some awesome new posts and exciting new projects, and hopefully, another 250 (mostly pretty good) posts.
That’s right, Ladies and Gents. It’s time, once again, for me to ask if you have any requests for topics for me to cover. Want more patterns? More tutorials? More inspiration posts? Is there a topic you’re curious about, or a technique you want to try? Have you been struggling with a new stitch pattern, and need a hand? Or are you curious about casting-on?
I’m more than happy bumbling along my way, chatting with you about whatever I happen to be thinking about, but I’d rather give you information you were actually interested in.
I’ve been doing this for a while now, and I’d love to hear from you, my readers (assuming that you’re out there). So far, I’ve pretty much been writing about whatever strikes my fancy, without much planning. So, I have questions:
What would you like to see more of? What would you like to see less of? Do you have any burning questions? Is there a pattern that you need help with? Is there anything you want to know about me? (Or, preferably, my knitting? I’m not a huge over-sharer.) Have you heard about some cool new technique or fiber that you would like to hear more about? Is there something knitting-related (or totally unrelated) that you’d like my input on? Do you have an idea for an Inspiration post?
I have some pretty cool stuff on deck (ie. in my brain. I just haven’t written the posts yet). But, let me know if I’m missing something! I’m here to serve!
