What's In A Name?

I had the hardest time trying to come up with a name for this blog. I can't understand why. I know that I want this blog to be a way that I am held accountable for what I am knitting. I know that I want this blog to be up beat, happy, positive, and real (no.. that's not sarcam. Just keep in mind that we can't have everything that we WANT). I know that I want this blog to be a way for me to better connect with the knitting community - I love Ravelry but when I am on there I am too busy looking for (free) patterns or lurking in the forums to do much posting. I do find myself looking in on my friends and reading every one of their blogs. What does my aunt say? "Turn about is fair play." I want this blog to be my turn-about.

Knowing all of that didn't make it any easier trying to find a name (that wasn't already taken). My husband and I finally decided calling the blog what it's called because knitting, to me, is intimate. I love it, adore it, have a burning passion for it, and when I can't knit I am thinking about it. It's like I am cheating on my husband with my knitting. Knitting makes me feel good, empowered, proud, special, accomplished, well rounded, and productive. Knitting is personal and close to my heart. It's intimate. So there you have it...

I am excited about this blog. I plan on sharing the knitting hap's in my local community (guess I will have to get out to more often), the yarns, books, mags, designers, bloggers etc that I have a "KNIT CRUSH" on, my visits to LYS's, things I purchase, WIP's, FO's, Knitting Break-Up's (frogged items),and my personal knitting evolution.

    I love blogging and it's great that I'm able to read your first post. I love the reason why you blog - and now podcast.

    I, too, think about knitting ALL THE TIME.
    What's on my needleS, what going to be on my needles, what's been bound off and ready to go.
