1. Because I was so totally inspired by the wonderful Sarah P. and her blogging over at Sarah Said
2. Because I wanted to sort of chronicle the huge changes in my life recently
3. Because I am a crafty, crafty girl, and I love reading other's marvelous craft blogs, especially after reading Knitalong: Celebrating the Tradition of Knitting Together. I loved how Larissa Brown used her blog to initiate beautiful swaps of knitterly goods!
I have really been slacking on the crafty part of the blog, though-- I have actually finished several knit objects (including a pair of striped glow-in-the-dark fingerless gloves-- hells yes), refinished a rocking chair, and made an awesome cover for this totally nerdy photo album I bought at a thrift store for $2.99! I have pictures of all this goodness on my camera, but haven't yet blogged about it. Just wait 'til this GRE/Grad School application stuff is out of the way. Then I'll be non-stop!
Anyway. The exciting thing is-- Sarah of the previously mentioned Sarah Said, and Talia, of Rejoicings and Ramblings have created a Scarf Swap called, "Girl, Get Your Scarf On!" I'm all over it. I am going to hand-knit it, but I won't share any secrets about it so I won't spoil the surprise for whomever I get to send it off to! YAY! My excitement is boiling over. Go to either Talia or Sarah's blog to sign up, and find all the details! The scarves totally don't have to be handknit, either, so if you're not feeling the fiber, it's OK. Let's all get cute and cozy, scarf style.
