Who dreamed of bein' a king
And then became one?
Well, except for the names
And a few other changes
If you talk about me,
The story's the same one."
That's exactly how I feel right now. I feel like the frog who dreamed about being a king and became one. I dreamed about sharing my love of knitting, and I did it. One year ago today, I made my first post to Knitting: A Love Story. The first day I had one visitor (which was probably me) and the second day I had ten. As of today, Knitting: A Love Story has had 12,718. I'd like to celebrate by reminiscing about my favorite things this year. First of all, this is the first picture I posted. Now remember, I am not a photographer, I am not a writer, I am just a knitter and a story teller. "Let start at the very beginning. That's a very good place to start. . ."
MY first post explained why the blog is called "Knitting: A Love Story." "My heart races with excitement at the thought of it. I catch myself thinking about it through out the day. When I think about it I smile. Even when it's boring, even when it's hard, I can't imagine not having knitting in my life. If that's not love I don't know what is." My explanation is even stronger today. Writing about my love of knitting has only intensified my love of knitting.
As I started reminiscing, I realized I needed to stop, otherwise I would just be talking about everything. I realized I loved everything about Knitting: A Love Story and the journey on which it has taken me. I never thought I had a year's worth of things to talk about but here I am with no end in sight.
Here's to another year of knitting, sharing and telling stories. Thank you to all the readers of Knitting: A Love Story for helping to make this the best year ever.
