Here is my contribution to Day Seven of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, organized by the adorable Eskimimi. Today’s theme is Crafting Balance…
Today is the last day of Knit and Crochet Blog Week 2012 — and it’s been enormous fun to take part. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of coming up with a new post every day, and I’ve loved the chance to check out other knitbloggers whose work I might not otherwise have seen.
However, there is a certain irony to today’s theme, Crafting Balance. It’s meant to be about balance between knitting and crochet, and possibly other crafts. For me, though, the balance that’s on my mind is the balance between blogging (although it’s certainly a craft in its own right) and knitting.
As a one-week exercise, this has been fantastic. As a long-term idea, though, I know it’s not something I could sustain. I love having a blog to post to when I’m excited about something, when I have something to say that’s more substantial than a twitter post, but I am not cut out to be a prolific blogger.
This week, I’ve spent more time blogging than I have knitting.
So, tonight? I’m clicking “publish” and then I’m settling in with my Signature needles, some Koigu and some Malabrigo Sock yarn, and I’m going to try to re-right that balance.
