I can hardly believe it’s already been three years since I started this blog. That’s three years of knitting, writing about knitting, photographing my knitting, attending knitting-related events, meeting fellow knitters, and buying yarn for more knitting. Wow.
This is more than a hobby or craft to me. In a very real sense, this blog (and knitting specifically), have been a creative lifeline for me over these past few years. Life inevitably throws us plenty of adventures and challenges, and through it all I have had the constant companion of yarn and needles. Chaotic, confusing times just beg to be tamed with the order of a soothing new project. Vacations love to be commemorated with a skein of souvenir yarn. New babies, birthdays, and holidays are all great reasons to roll around in your yarn stash and come out with something beautiful to knit for those you love.
Writing this blog has touched my life in a profound way. I am so thankful to have had the inspiration and courage to write that first blog post, and to keep knitting through all the ups and downs of the past three years. You have been so supportive and encouraging of my writing and knitting projects, and while I keep this space mainly for myself, I have to admit that has been deeply meaningful. Thank you; I hope you’ll stick around and see what happens in Peaceful Knitter-land in the future.
