1. I think it was March 26, 2015 I came to the realization that I am a yarn collector not a yarn addict. (Even though I have the physical symptoms of addiction when I am not around beautiful yarn or knit every day.) Collector is so much more socially acceptable. I remember the fabulous quote from Dave Barry. "There is a fine line between hobby and mental illness." I walk the line.
2. It doesn't matter how beautiful the yarn is or how amazing a pattern, if it uses bobbins drop it immediately. Do you remember this?
3. Using a crochet hook as a cable needle. Genius!
4. Like a person with PTSD, I can step back into the moment when I first learned what ROY G BIV meant. I am still amazed I didn't know this. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. ROY G BIV!
6. I took a class at Crafty Lady Trio to learn different ways to use the iPad to support knitting like storing patterns in iBooks. Having my patterns from Ravelry or Patternfish living in iBooks makes it possible to use patterns without being on the internet (like last April when we couldn't get our cable/internet hook up for several days.)
7. I felt so validated discovering the research around Therapeutic Knitting. This book explains exactly how I feel about knitting. It put words to my feelings
There were many special moments, but two involved Jocelynn Brown and the Detroit News.
I thought one post would be enough to talk about my four years with Knitting: A Love Story, but it's not. In Part 2 of celebrating Knitting: A Love Story's 4th anniversary, I will talk about all of the knitting retailers I have talked about in Knitting: A Love Story. See you soon.
