What a surprise, finding myself a Blogger Blog of Note today! I’m honored, but slightly uncomfortable. Yes, this is a public space, and yes, many anonymous readers stop by … but somehow, anyway, right now, I feel a little exposed.
You see, I think of myself as a knitblogger. I’m part of a large and wonderful community of people who share my passion, and I’m blessed to have made many friends, both real and virtual, in this relatively small corner of the big old internet. But here, today, the doors have been flung wide open!
My blog and my life seem to be defined by what is going on right now — cancer treatment and navigating the strange terrain of it, and getting on with it — but when I seek to define myself cancer isn’t at the top of the list.
So: I’m a knitter. I’m a spinner. I’ve made many pairs of socks, and whatever else that has inspired me. I love yarn. I design knitting patterns once in a while. I’m a bookseller, too. I live with that cat, in a little apartment near the Atlantic Ocean. I go to the water as often as I can, to refill and be and look out at the horizon. I’m a middle child. Sure, I have cancer. I also have a good life that’s on the way to getting better.
There. I feel better now. Welcome everyone!
