Why “Wordknitter”?

Why, indeed, did I choose this theme for my new blog? I know themes are important for a blog–I started a different blog a year ago, but it’s defunct now, mostly for lack of a unifying theme–but why this idea? And why start a blog now? Part of me just wants to jump back on the blogging bandwagon, but I’d like to think I have another motive.

As a college student, I struggle to organize my time. Between work, classes, club commitments, critique groups, and my latest knitting or writing project, I never quite feel like I’m getting enough done.

Of course, two of these overlap: my knitting and my creative writing. Both are coping mechanisms. Both are artistic.

And both are incredibly distracting!

Thus I dedicate my new blog to bringing my favorite distractions together, to proving that I really can knit words.
