I'm a Blogger

Hi and welcome to my blog,

Yesterday, at a regular get together with friends (where we knit, eat, chat and laugh a lot) I was convinced that it is about time that I add blogging to the list of things I do. So here I am...

I've been busy all morning between my dyepots and my computer, setting up my blog and dyeing yarn - having fun, something I do a lot of. One of my favourite sayings is "HAVE FUN". It's important that we enjoy what ever it is we do, it shows in the results. I've been pondering what I'm going to blog about and have made quite a list of things I hope will be of interest to everyone. Besides talking about whatever I'm busy doing, I intend posting tutorials, profiles of fibre artists, book reviews, great places to shop.... So, please let me know if there is a topic you would like me to cover, a technique you would like a tutorial for, an artist you would like profiled, a good place to shop, anything else....and I will do my best to do it here.

In the mean time, I'm looking for a title for a book I'm writing which is due for publication early next year. The book is all about our local (SA) yarn makers and knitting creatively using their yarns. The title needs to reflect this and it must work in both English and Afrikaans. The Afrikaans doesn’t need to be a direct translation or exactly the same title as the English but it must be close enough for people to know that it is the same book.

Any ideas? Who ever thinks up the title/s we use will receive a free copy of the book once it is published.

Have a wonderful rest of the day and don't forget to HAVE FUN!

  3. I like "Wild Knits" although goodness only know how to translitterate that into Afrikaans...
    Maybe "The home of the Adorable Aardvark"...
    MMMmmmmmm... "Die Aarvark kom weer...want hy wil nie langer wag!"

  4. Dana well done with the great yarns you are going to be letting us crafters get a hold of!!! I wish you success with this great venture.Helene
