My Other Obsession... Re-emerged

Let's face it, as much as we try to not let social media take over our lives, it does. I've come to terms with this, and instead of fighting I will embrace social media that is actually interesting and can teach me some new things. Cue Pinterest. I joined pinterest last year after my roommates forced me to and at first didn't have much interest in it.. but that changed quite quickly. I was soon addicted, pinning recipes and wedding ideas during my class lectures instead of studying for finals. Like all other media trends, I soon forgot about pinterest and moved on to focusing on the summer, the new school year, friends, family, etc. But recently I've rediscovered pinterest and my love for it is at full throttle. Lately I've been pinning a lot about weddings (because what girl doesn't love thinking about that day?), different appetizers (because I LOVE to cook), and of course creative knits.

Pinterest has inspired me to try so many new and interesting techniques for knitting and I can't wait to complete the long list of ideas that keeps growing day by day...

  1. Margaret thanks for the follow today and entering the giveaway.
    I love that herringbone pattern. If you haven't made it its quite simple to make. I can send you some links that can help. You do great work and I'm a fan.
    Good luck on the giveaway ;)

    1. Thank you! I'm excited about the giveaway, I have wayyy too many lonely skeins lying around. I've found several tutorials about the herringbone, I've just been putting it off... I want to find the perfect yarn and pattern for it!
