well, this post was supposed to have pictures of today's sunrise, like last year's new years. but i spent all day dueling with technology, forgetting to get the pictures off the camera before ben took off with it until wednesday.
this is my 100th post. i can't tell if that's a lot or not - i've had this blog for two and half years... in those years i have learned a lot about knitting and sewing, but do you know what post got the most comments? my cat dying. that sucked, and i was hesitant to post anything because i typically avoid personal posts, but it verified my suspicion - that we're all just interested in getting into someone's life.
blogs are not real life, not even close, and i am absolutely guilty of doing the same. i'm not really interested in changing my blog towards the more personal; as much as i love comments too much, posting that stuff here ends up being unsatisfying.
so i guess what i'd like to do is push myself a little more, learn to take better pictures, and start coming up with more original designs.
this is way too much typing without a picture.
i don't really make new year's resolutions, but hopefully 2012 will bring a finished meredith. because 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 didn't. what?! yes, this is a sweater of epic frogging and time-outs. because apparently an 11-color fairisle isn't ideal for one's first sweater.
these are the before pictures... the back is now unraveled for the 2nd (or maybe 3rd time). i'm starting over. again. i don't think i even like this sweater anymore - it's about having knitting closure!!
