...is it blog-worthy?


I don’t have a finished object for you; I don’t have any epiphanies to report. Sometimes words and ideas can be a struggle. A thought pops into my head and I think to myself “Is it blog-worthy?” I capture an object or a flower through my lens and I ask myself “Is it blog-worthy?”

I can understand why some of the more established bloggers lament that sometimes their blog overtakes them, everything becomes about the blog, and they begin to run out of words to express themselves. There are times when we don’t really have anything to say. I have always liked to write – I make my living with it. My blog started out with writing; however, blogging slowly evolved in me a desire to express myself through images as well.

And so, there is no knitting in this post, however there is an image taken with my new camera. I am so excited with this new acquisition and can’t wait to explore the visual opportunities that it opens up. It is my first digital SLR – I don’t know how to use it yet – but it will be a journey. The yarn above, captured through the lens, is the fabulous Regal Silk from Art Yarns - most definitely blog-worthy!!
