I didn’t realize it but Friday was the year anniversary of starting Yards of Happiness. A whole year has gone by with me blogging again and I’m kind of shocked – it felt like less time than that. But in this last year this blog has grown a lot and gotten a lot of views, comments and love – and that’s from all of you. I thank you being awesome, encouraging people who happily share tips and tricks of your own! I’ve learned and tried a lot in the last year and I think it’s because I knew you guys would want feedback!
I started Yards of Happiness because I actually wanted to share things again after I had taken a break from blogging. Knitting became something that I loved and I wanted to connect with others who loved knitting and yarn as much as I do. And man it’s been so great this past year. If you’re new to the site I thought I’d give you a few highlights of the last year (click the highlighted names for posts).
My Mountain High sweater was featured on the Ravelry blog and that is probably how many of you ended up reading my blog. I thought that was pretty cool.
24 Sweaters in 1 Year
If you haven’t noticed it yet, I’m a fast knitter. I’m also an obsessive sweater knitter. In 2015 I knit 24 sweaters and learned a lot along the way. The link above is to all my finished objects if you’d like to browse.
I love yarn, I think of it as artwork and it was really awesome for Madelinetosh to retweet a pic of my Cracked Pepper cardigan where I used her Neon Peach yarn. Color lovers unite!
This last year has been fun and I don’t think much is going to change around here. I’m still knitting almost every day and cranking out projects left and right. I’m hoping to work on some more complex sweaters this summer before I get into the crush of wanting to knit for my family for Christmas. I’ve also knit socks and I have plans to dip my toe into some colorwork (other than stripes). So thanks for joining me here, I’m happy to share my knitting world (and Cher) with you whether it’s been a day or the entire year! Who knows what this next year will bring!
