A week without pictures

Last week I set myself a challenge.

I realised that I find it difficult to post regularly when I don’t have pretty pictures to share. It makes me embarrassed to write and embarrassed to publish. It’s a knitting blog! I should have pictures of knitted things!

Of course this isn’t always viable. When most of my projects are half finished and slow going due to a lack of concentration, pictures are not that exciting. Add that to the fact I live in a basement apartment that gets about thirteen seconds of sunlight a day (which is NOT enough time to figure out where I put my damn camera this time) and that I only go to pretty places when I’m hauling around an excited 90lb dog, photos aren’t always going to happen.

So last week I decided to post no pictures at all to convince myself it’s okay, I can still update without a shiny thing to distract everyone.

It’s part of my attempt to bring my blog back to being about me and my knitting journey. I got distracted for a while worrying too much about what people would think of me if I didn’t do it ‘right’. But let’s face it: there’s no such thing.

What I enjoy reading in knitting blogs is the journey. I like understanding why people knit and what they get out of it (besides jaunty hats and stylish toes). Pictures are great but they are not the only thing that matters.

    1. It’s good to hear that. I’ve not had a lot of energy lately so pictures are an added stumbling block to posting regularly. Thank you!
