Hello, hello, hello… again. Do you know who I am? Some of you may remember me as The Accidental Knitter. And in some ways, I still am, but I really needed a change. Here’s why:
- There’s a fiber artist out there who dyes some really nice-looking yarn, called… you guessed it: The Accidental Knitter. This person (I can’t tell if it’s a man or a woman) owns the domain name, and even though I came up with it before s/he appeared on the scene, s/he still bought it, which makes it hers/his. I’ve always felt a pang of guilt using the name Accidental Knitter knowing that s/he was out there, too, so to rid myself of said guilt, I’m ditching the moniker.
- I like Blogger quite a bit, but changing the layout of my pages was getting ridiculous. I just wanted something different, but it was too hard for me to do what I wanted to do with my layout… and I’m a Web programmer, for pete’s sake. So I moved over here. So far so good.
- My old blog was getting stale for me, because I felt penned in by the knitting. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking/writing about it, but every other day? Just knitting??? Impossible. There’s more to me than that.
So now I’m back. I’ll write when I feel like it, and I’ll write about things other than knitting… sometimes. Let’s see what happens.
