Hello hello dear readers! I can’t believe May is almost gone! I know I haven’t posted much, but I promise I have been working hard! The May (1980) issue I’m using doesn’t have a ton of projects I’m interested in. The #1 project I’m dedicated to doing is the collared shawl, and it is HUGE! SO much knitting. It is made of two triangles, either of which could be a shawl by itself. I’m also already working on June projects, AND planning and prepping for a BIG July event! Add in life in general, some possible food poisoning (I’m better now, thank goodness) and the actual posting ON the blog just kind of slipped away. But I am good now, and knitting, crocheting, and crafting the days away.
Interestingly enough, I just mentioned this when I revealed the issue, but now I know who shot JR, AND thanks to the powers of the internet I have seen the clip. I really do find it amazing that something before I was even born is still something I’ve heard a million times in my life. I think it’s part of why I love vintage. It’s memories, it’s life, it’s the ties that bind people through time.
This recent blog break brings up some questions, and I’d really love your input. I write this blog because I love it, and want to, but I want you to love it too. What type of stuff would you like to see more of? Do you want more posts about what is in progress, even if it is unfinished? More reviews? More regular reviews? Regular chatter? Do you want to hear about regular funny stories and my life, or want me to keep it crafty? I’d really love to share more patterns, but copyright is an issue, so I’m brainstorming some ideas on that. I’d really love to hear from you in the comments below, or feel free to contact me using the contact page.
