A blog is born

Monday - The inevitable start to the week

So today started with the usual drive in to downtown to drop my fiance off at work and then I headed to my local coffee place for a much needed coffee and muffin. It was here that I decided to finally leave a comment on the Yarn Harlot's blog. I had recently stumbled upon her blog one evening when looking for more information on the world of knitting. You see I am new to this lovely hobby and I am just soaking up all the information I can on patterns, yarns, and all the other little things that go with it. This is what I wrote:

I have just recently stumbled upon your blog and love it. I have enjoyed catching up on all your yarn adventures and find myself checking in every morning to see what you are up to. I love how your posts literally make me laugh out loud. I am very sorry to hear about the death of your coffee maker. I hope you are able to move on soon.

I am new to the knitting world and have taught myself with the aid of some good books and you tube as my teacher. My fiancé is still getting used to seeing me carrying my bag of needles and yarn all over the house and out and about on my daily errands. My friends are getting into my new hobby and have already started asking for hats and mittens to help deal with the approaching winter here in Ottawa.

Today I am on my way to my favorite yarn store, Wool n Things, in Orleans to pick up the makings of a pair of beautiful soon to be my favorite pair of socks. I will let you know hostile turns out as it will be my first attempt with dpns and the making of socks.

Your new fan,


I have just returned from home from my favorite little yarn shop, Wool n Things, with some dpns and some wonderful new wool from Indigo Moon.

I will write again soon to show you the progress I have made
