There used to be a time when knit blogs exploded with finished knits and posts. Work in progress shots, discussions on which yarns to choose, and how the project was shaping up, kept my Bloglines feed alive with posts that made my work productivity low.
I suppose it was the gift/curse of Ravelry. It allowed people to post their projects so easily for all to see without having to create a blog post. Soon you didn't need a blog to showcase your knits – it could be done easily with a post to your notebook. Suddenly my Bloglines feed updated less and less as the blogs became quiet. (Funny at about the same time I got a promotion at work… I kid, I kid.)
Some people think I'm a part of a "dying breed", but I know better. There are SO many of us still out there updating our little corner of the internet with our knit stories. One of my favorite things to do is to read the comments section on blogs I'm subcribed to and click on a random commenter. I go to their blog and click through to another blog. Click, click, click – going from one blog to the next. I found Dear Knits Tara that way and to be honest I can't imagine not reading her blog!
The internet is a vast world with so many nooks and crannies and it's easy to get wrapped up in your "circle" of sites. Sometimes you need to click through and branch out.
With that said I give you my For the Love of Knit Blogs FO posts! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite FOs from the blogs I read. Some of them I'm sure you all know, while others may be new to you! Either way, enjoy! (and maybe even comment here, there, everywhere! We all are lovers of comments – helps the "garden grow"!)
Tara's Thanks Teach Totes (I know it's sewing but so cute!)
Alex's Darla (which is a new pattern too! very cool!)
keep on knitting!
PS. I will SO have some FO posts next week, for now above is my swatch for my Melanie's Wrap in Quince & Co. Lark left over from my Belfast Hoodie. And that amazing bag? It's Knitterella Jill's amazing project bag, go get one!
