Write about a knitter whose work (whether because of project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash, etc) you enjoy. If they have an enjoyable blog, you might find it a good opportunity to send a smile their way.
I currently have 153 blogs in my Google Reader account. Not all of them are active, but most of them are, and the majority of them are knitting blogs. Some of them feature sewing now and again or are about knitting peripherally, but most of them are about knitting in some way. My favorites, let me show you them:
Knitting to Stay Sane, by Glenna C (of Viper Pilots fame). She posts 3-4 times per week and is almost always funny, interesting, and engaging. Also, she’s a wonderful designer (have I mentioned my desperate love for the Viper Pilots socks not to mention my deep, longing need to have a pair of Neptune High socks).
The Yarn Harlot, by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. As if I really need to list this. She’s hilarious and witty, and her knitting capers are, at the very least, interesting.
Finny Knits Okay, so many of the posts recently are about gardening, but that’s okay cause guys? She’s SO FUNNY (are we sensing a theme here?). She usually makes me at least chuckle at least once per post.
Juniper Moon Fiber Farm Blog, by Susan Gibbs. Okay, there’s not usually a lot of knitting in this blog. But there’s occasionally yarn. Mostly it’s fantastically adorable pictures of cute sheep, goats, and dogs. Susan runs a fiber CSA on her Cormo sheet/angora goat farm. Her posts are about the ups and downs of the farm life. Also, did I mention there are cute pictures of baby sheep and goats? Cause guys? THERE ARE BABY SHEEP AND GOATS. They’re so cute.
Now it’s y’all’s turn: What are your favorite knitting blogs? I love to find new ones. : )
