One whole year has gone by with blogging. I sincerely thank you all for reading and commenting.
Been enjoying your comments and seeing the count of the visitors grow.
I have behind of me a very difficult year. All this in my personal life. The blog has been a place to escape to and the place to sort of "count the good" and focus on them. When I named the blog Dances With Wool I hoped to be able to dance with joy when the year had gone by, I am able to dance, but not quite the way I pictured before. But a good dance is made of slow and melancholy walzes and passionate tangos and happy jives and what else? Dance can be ballet or ethnic or modern or old fashioned. This year has had them all.
Athough my mother talked to me in Finnish I chose as my blogging language English. I don't know this language well enough and have often times hoped that I blogged in Finnish since there would be so many more things I could express in my own language but I wanted to have this as a personal learning tool and to be able to connect with friends and knitters from far away places. In the early stages of blogging I checked quite frequently the dictionary but lately I have become a bit lazy and know that my spelling/word order etc. is lacking but I try to practise some forgiving towards myself. It is only human to be wrong and is good for the character.
I have been very bad in answering the comments and it is only because of the too short 24 hours one day has. I wish there would be one more hour ear-marked for correspondence only. Knitting information has been of poor quality as well but I wanted this site to be more inspirational than tutorial.
I am amazed that I'm still writing 12 months after the first post. I have not been sure of it always. But I'm glad I am here today writing this.
