Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope wherever you are, you’re sharing the joy of togetherness and the day is treating you well.
My day has been dedicated to the love of knitting (no, that’s not sad), and I have had a great time knitting with Alice, a fellow Wellingtonian blogger who writes Crochet with Raymond.
I thought that as today is about sharing happy things, I’d share my list of favourite blogs with you. You will probably have noticed that my blog doesn’t have the usual list of ‘other blogs I read’. I used to have the list, but for some reason, at some point, decided it wasn’t really adding anything to the main objective of this blog (New Zealand yarns), so I took the list down. Also, some of the blogs I follow don’t post very often. However, there are a few blogs that I read all the time, and really enjoy the content because in some way, I connect with each of the writers.
I’m a little hesitant about this post, because I don’t want to cause offence to the many bloggers out there by somehow seeming to say your blog is not special (especially to you, the lovely people who read my blog). I love reading your blogs (if you leave the address for me to visit) too. So please do not be offended! The list I’m about to share is just my ‘required reading’ list because I either get a lot out of reading them or find them extremely educational.
So here, I share this list. Some of them are high entertainment. Others are touching from their pure intelligence and insightful content. Others teach. Others talk about yarn and knitting (my favourite topic if you haven’t noticed). They’re not all about knitting; mostly about knitting though. And others I just read because they remind me that out there, there are normal people with similar interests and views to me.
I suspect you’ll all know the Yarn Harlot, and maybe Needled, but the others perhaps not. I hope you enjoy reading them.
