Today I'm going to ignore the chaos around me and talk about the REAL important things in life. Like knitting.
I have a list of blogs I regularly check in on a few times a week, and for some reason, the knitting ones are the most entertaining, outspoken, and fun. These are people with lives and jobs and they all seem to get a lot of knitting done. How do they do it? The most fortunate among them have jobs that involve knitting, but that's no indicator of being able to actually have time to use the skills. I used to work in a quilt shop and sell sewing machines, and at that point in my life, I seldom had time to do much sewing. And it killed me...
But I digress. Back to knitting blogs. I'm including a few of them here, hoping they'll offer a diversion on a Monday.
The Knitting Curmudgeon. This woman is opinionated and does not suffer fools gladly, but is usually 100% correct in her opinions... Fasten your seatbelt. And don't miss the comments her readers post. Mild language warning here.
Queer Joe's Knitting Blog. Joe is a good friend of the Curmudgeon's. Also opinionated. His readers also contribute a running conversation in the comment section that is too good to miss.
Mason-Dixon Knitting. Two women, one in Manhattan, and one in Tennessee, are the co-bloggers here. You could kick back with these ladies and have a fine time, whether you knit or not.
The Yarn Harlot. The harlot is a Toronto-based knitter and author. She recounts the trials and tribulations of book-touring, always with a pair of socks in progress on her needles.
