After 17 months off…

…on a night that promises to be really windy and cold (especially for South Carolina!), here I am writing a knitting blog post again. I need to do this. I can feel the pressure to write something building up.

Why did I stop posting for so long? One reason is that I got myself into a bind. I’d been trying to write big posts, and when I didn’t have time to write long, involved posts with lots of pictures, I waited until I had time. Then I felt guilty about stopping the posts… and off down the spiral I went. Here I am, back again and I’m going to take it easy on myself. If I have a picture—great! If I have a ‘deep thought’ about knitting that I want to explore—awesome! But I’m not going to let the lack of an image stop me again.

Perhaps once the dams are broken, things will flow again. Besides, Cristi asked me to write up my notes about how I modified the Chimera pattern to make it into a double-layer mitten. I might as well make it into a post while I’m at it!

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
