The Essence of Blogging

It has occured to me that if one has a blog, it might be...I dunno...bloggier, perhaps...if one actually blogged.  More frequently than sometime last August. 

However, whatever my thoughts on the matter, it's quite apparent that an abandonment of blog occured.  Why?  Not for lack of things to say.  I always have things to say.   More than are sensible to say.  Always.  (Not in a Snapesian way, though.)

(Oh, come on...'After all this time?' asks the Headmaster.  And the reply:  'Always.'  But you knew that.  It's Snape 101.)

So, after putting the trappings of Christmas away, I resolved to get after this bloggy business and go forth and blog stuff.   And the Christmas stuff IS put away. So that's a win.

In doing all this shifting about of things in the house, I discovered the Space Bag containing my own personalized Year of Sock Knitting.  Lovely.  I started with yarn for 18 pairs of socks...and as of today,  I have made a grand total of  3 completed pairs.  This is great, but they were not made from the yarn I selected for my sock club project.   Clearly I have had Sock Club Failure.

So now I have to decide if I want to have do-overs this year, or just admit that I don't enjoy structure quite that much and call it a day.  Whatcha think?  Keep truckin' or try something different?

And break time is over, and so concludes this entry!  Happy New Year, my little ones!  May all good things be yours!

Knit what you feel like knitting...your hobby of choice should not feel like an obligation. It should be fun!!!

Well there shall be no opinions from me about blog frequency since the last time I posted to my blog was JULY. And as for the knitting, meh, knit the socks you like and do something else with the rest of the yarn, it to your blog readers! Yeah!

Ahh, so this is my blogging problem. I've taken my decorations down, but I haven't yet put them away. I have stuff I should be posting about, but I don't even know if I'll do it this week.

Hang in there, Cozy!♥

This is my favourite thing about Snape

I like Julie's suggestion for what to do with your yarn. Hobbies shouldn't be more obligation than pleasure.
