My friend Tad has been producing some knitting blog designs recently (for example, Kat Coyle and Connie Chang Chinchio). If I were designing knitwear in the real world instead of only in my head, then I would love to have a blog redesign and my own domain.
I’ve decided to stay here, though, and I intend to do more knit blogging because I miss it. And to feel somewhat reinvigorated about my blog, I changed my template and added a new header. The photo in the header is from a visit to India in December and January of this past year, where I joined my friends at their wedding. His family lives in Ahmedabad, which is next to Gandhinagar, which is where Gandhi lived and invented the charka spinning wheel.
I didn’t come home with a charka, although I had a request from at least one friend. But, I did take a photo of this spartan room, which represents how I would like to feel in my creative life: clear, clean, focused.
Wishful thinking perhaps, but it’s nice to have a goal in mind.
In the mean time, even though I haven’t been blogging, I have been knitting, and over the summer finished these two items. Thanks to my friends that took me to the beach and didn’t know they would be asked to model!
