To be blunt - I want to talk about my knitting.
There just aren't enough people around in my day-to-day routine that are willing to discuss knitting with me. Joe can cope with a bit (provided he's not in danger of losing an eye), and the guys at work can cope with a bit less. My mother and mother-in-law, grandmother-in-law, aunts and cousins hear all about my latest projects too.
But it's just not enough!
So, the obvious solution .... of course, start a blog. Mostly about knitting, but other bonus stuff as well.
This is it - one post so far, but more on the way.
