Yet again I have disappeared from the blog. I wish I could say it was just because I was busy, but ultimately it was because writing something became this THING I avoided for some reason. That and I spent the past few months watching many seasons of TV shows available on Netflix and spinning my heart out on my Schacht Ladybug wheel. I want to thank the folks who have stopped by this blog for one reason or another, found it through Pinterest and have followed me through email or Twitter. Y’all are pretty awesome and this post is dedicated to you. :)
So! Now where to go from here? I still don’t know what to write about. Should I go back and cover the topics I missed over the past year? Seeing as I only wrote 9 posts in 2013 but finished tons of projects and started spinning, there’s actually a lot to write about. But I still continue to knit and spin and um…add to my enormous stash so I hope to put some newer up-to-date content up to. Today, though, I wanted to explain the name of my blog. This is something I’ve wanted to share for a long time but simply never got around to. Why “Compositions of Wool”? Three years ago when I was entertaining the thought of starting a blog I tried to think of a name that would allow me to talk about a few different areas of fiber-love, not just knitting. Since I tend to write about yarn and fiber artists in addition to knitting I really wanted something to encompass what we do as, well, artists in our own right. My sister is a painter and her color sense heavily influenced my interest in the spectrum. She has paint brushes and acrylic paint but for me wool is just my way to experience color and to share my craft. There’s another thing… compositions. Have you considered that your knitting or crochet pursuits can be seen as a sort of writing and knitting needles/crochet hooks are your writing instruments? It’s a way to speak and express your passions and creativity. So thus, Compositions of Wool was born and since then I tried to write about yarn, places to buy yarn, what I’ve done with yarn, and occasionally have giveaways for others to share in that yarn adoration. I hope to get back into that and will push myself to not let months at a time go by without a post. It’s nice to have an outlet and share the love of yarn with others. I appreciate your stopping to catch my posts and rambling more than I can say.
