Time to Admit Something...

... to myself. 

Once upon a time, there was a blog that was popular. Lots of people read it and lots of people commented. Then the writer of that blog started having issues with lots of stuff and the blog sorta went by the wayside, got deleted, started over, transferred to another blog address, was nearly abandoned and well, the list carries on for sometime. 

It thus became time for the blog writer to admit, that the blog was no longer for all the masses, but for a few loyal, close blogland people who never stopped reading the blog and supporting the writer of the blog through all the ups and downs that had come before. (now THAT'S a run-on sentence) 

Of course the blog, as all blogs, also serves the purpose of record keeping, like any journal, of the accomplishments, knitterly and otherwise, and the aforementioned ups and downs of life in general. 

Once the blog writer admitted this to herself, she realized that the pressure was off and she could relax. Loyal is loyal and those who fit that description were more precious to her then the fleeting popularity she had once experienced. 

the end

=) Love y'all!

This is pretty huge for a dishcloth, I think I'll try sizing it down a bit for the next one. It's a really fun knit, though, and a very forgiving pattern. I made a few mistakes here and there and it didn't seem to matter too much. I've been using the blue one a bunch and it's really cool. Can't wait to throw away all the much hated ones I have. Thanks for the suggestions, Chris! =)

I love making the petal dishcloth. I love using my handknit dishcloths--many of them my daughter has made me as I seem to gift most of the ones I make. I love your blog and your sense of humor. You go girl

I have had the same blogging experience. Plus I have had issues with feeling guilty for not leaving comments enough on the blogs I read. But I am breaking out of my funk enough to make sure I say I DO LOVE YOU APRIL!!!! :-D

That is one GIANT dishcloth! Maybe you could use it to wash the kids will - all at once!
You know I'll read what you right (I may be a bit behind at the moment, but I'm still here). And besides, you want quality, not quantity, right?! :)
