?WTF happened here, you may wonder.
Depends how far back you want to go, really, but let me get a little more honest than I usually do. You deserve that. In fact I'm going to make it a point to be more honest here all the time.
You may recall that I published a book in November 2006, thinking my life would be transformed and that my knitting career would carry me to new heights of fame and fortune.
The reality was less thrilling, of course. I was left with a repetitive strain injury that hurt when I knit, or typed, and my knitting passion was now a product. My craft had become a puzzle of math and sizing that had little to do with the joy of watching a piece evolve on the needles. I found it hard to cast on anything new without making notes and writing down steps; I was reluctant to give away words for free on the blog, but I certainly wasn't ready to pen another book. Simple fact: I just wasn't having fun anymore.
