Blogiversary Again!

This little creation makes it to four years old tomorrow, I swear it hasn't been a year since last time and four since the first post - amazing!
Nothing dramatically changes here now year on year, and that's part of the charm for me. The little ordinary details that get captured. The increased connection with the rhythm and cycles of the year. The space to obsess over things that the average work colleague or even my closest friend just doesn't quite feel the same about. Ceramic buttons - squeal! 
I'd definitely say to anyone learning to knit that they should keep a blog about it along the way. (So any new knitter without a blog if you're reading this and fancy it - do it! It's fab.)   It's so easy to forget what it was you didn't know (everything) and take your skills for granted as there still feels like a whole lot of everything you don't know. There have been dramatic changes since those first days, changes that creep up on you. I'm tickled by this post from early in my sock days where I say "my pattern uses something called Kitchener Stitch.." at least that's one thing I've got licked now.
So celebrate with me you lovely blog readers, I'd blog without you but it's much more fun with you! Four pictures of pretty things for four whole years of blogging. If you'd like to receive a set of these wonderful buttons or the stitch markers made in South Africa for Injabulo, a wonderful little company I found this year, please wish me a happy blogiversary in the comments and let me know which set you'd prefer. I'll do a draw next weekend if there are multiple people falling in love with these lovable creations. This weekend I'm off to Bath with my cutie patootie (and the Christmas knitting!). Life is good.

Happy Blogiversary! You're right, getting to look back at how far you've come is the best reason to blog. Have a great weekend in Bath.

(feel free to leave me out of the draw... as you know I've got way to much stuff already :) )

Congratulations! I just hit three years myself.

My early posts refer to stashbusting. Apparently not much has changed.. :)

I agree--looking back to the first few posts about knitting, it's amazing how far I've come (and how far I still have to go!).

I'm so glad you enjoy writing in this space so much--Happy Blogiversary! Here's to many more years! (ps, I'm loving those round buttons...very unique).

Happy Blogiversary Sarah! I can't believe it's been a year since I was lucky enough to win goodies from your last anniversary give away. Please don't enter me this time, but please do keep on blogging!!

Happy Blogiversary. My blog is only a few months old but I have discovered so many fantastic blogs in that short space of time, including yours........reading blogs is so much more fun than reading mags.

I would love to win one of your giveaways, no preference.

happy blogiversary! I'm running a celebration on my blog for my first anniversary. I'd figured out kitchener stitch by the time I started the blog, but this year I've finally mastered being able to do it without having the directions there.
