I need to spend a few days decluttering after Christmas, but decided today was the perfect day to go through hundreds of fiber- related blogs that I may have looked at in the past. I use Bloglines as my blog reader.
It has been MONTHS since I have last looked at "my" blogs. Many of the old favorites are still there; many others have had "slim pickings" in their postings. It is very obvious that Ravelry is where most of the action is now, but I also rely on Flickr to keep me up to date on what others are working on.
But I do love looking at what I call "Nordic bloggers" -- blogs by knitters in the cold climes seem to be full of thoughtful prose and slightly different styles. Even if I do come upon a blog in Norwegian or Swedish (neither of which I speak) , I often "flag" the blog to go back to look at the photos of knitted works in progress. I always seem to learn something,
it has finally struck me THAT is why I look at so many blogs and others' work. I'm always learning something, and I like that!
