I am a closet blogger.
I made this "we call them pirates" hat for my friend Michelle, whom I love dearly. Today is her Birthday. Happy Birthday, Michelle!
Until recently, Michelle was my only friend who knew about my blog. Of course my entire family knows about it, and some of their close friends, but for the most part, I have kept this private. By writing this blog it totally forces me to step outside of my comfort zone. It inspires me to try new things (I hate that darn tubular cast on) and reading many of your blogs are what is my source of inspiration. For some reason, I haven't told my friends. Believe me, I'm not flattering myself by thinking everyone who knows me would even want to read my knitting blog. Many of my friends don't even know what a blog is. I have this vision of telling my friends, and the look of confusion on their faces...."Blog, what? You mean you take pictures of your knitting, baking, sewing, kids body parts, doors, and put it on the Internet? What for???" Those are the people who don't know about my obsessive, compulsive need to create. They would totally accept it, I just don't think that they would "get it". So, I have avoided it all together. This blog is my little spot that says I was here, I did this, I loved these, I felt that. I also love that my kids can look back on a small memoir of our lives.
Please, let me know, are you a closet blogger, or have you come out? Maybe I am just more comfortable with other people, who feel the same need to create, knowing about me.:)
And if you haven't seen this hat before,I doubt it, here is the skinny:
Pattern: We Call Them Pirates
Yarn I used: Debbie Bliss, Baby Cashmerino, 1 ball black, 1 ball white
Size 3 needles
B.H. Thanks for "getting it", and I hope that you will visit often. :)
