better

February 18, 2009

It is true that you learn something new everyday and lately I feel like it is all depressing.  More specifically, I’ve been learning something new about MYSELF everyday.  Here’s the big one.  I want to be better than I am (at everything) but I am too scared to try new things so I will keep knitting scarves.  That’s a pretty good metaphor, but also true.  Not only will I keep knitting scarves, but I will keep knitting them in garter, seed, and stockinette stitches.  I’m not even knitting new patterns.  There is probably a lot you can do with those three stitches, like lace or cables but I will never know.

I am sooo connected.

January 2, 2009

One year ago I was strictly opposed to all things technological, especially websites such as this.  Now here are the ways in which I am connected on the world wide web.

1. facebook – the gateway drug

2. Ravelry – mmm knitting

3. WordPress – undecided

4.  Starbucks V2V – I almost forgot about that one.
