Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week round-up

I'm a little bit annoyed that I cottoned on to Eskimimi's Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week half way through the week and only fully appreciated the concept and size of it later on in the week.

Having now realised that it has sparked loads of fantastic knitting and crochet posts and that they're easy to find by Googling 2KCBWDAY1, 2KCBWDAY2 etc, I've had a good riffle through and listed a few of my favourites.

The concept was to blog each day on a given theme.

day 1 - tale of two yarns

for lovely colours:

for two lovely featured projects:

for her enthusiasm for a very interesting yarn:

day 2 - skill + 1UP

for making me want to try intarsia knitting:

for discussing a very interesting skill - learning not to be a perfectionist

for possibly the most impressive list of new skills discussed

day 3 - Tidy mind, tidy stitches

for making me want to tidy my stash:

for a bewildering collection of bags and tidies:

for coining the lovely phrase "organized disorganization":

day 4 - where are they now

for a happy story of a beautiful shawl getting much use:

for a sad story of two little piggies:

for the geekery which appealed to me greatly

day 5 - something completely different

for putting Simon and Garfunkel in my head:

for making me smile with a photo of taking a photo of socks:

for a complete set of photos of a beautiful project fibre -> finished object:

and finally, because I was delighted that someone had made a knitting version of leekspin

It got rid of Simon and Garfunkel (with something much more annoying) and reminded me that when I first saw leekspin I'd made my own spinning version:

This is a very cool idea to list different posts you liked and what you liked about them for the Knit and Crochet Blog Week. I'm honored I made it on the list! :)

Thanks for getting in touch! I would genuinely have liked to take part. Actually I wonder whether I would have enough to say or the ability keep it up for 7 days running, but maybe with another year under my belt next year I'll go for it. I'm in full admiration of everyone who has taken part, and it's great to have so many knitting and crochet posts to look at.

I like your relaxed approach to organisation, it makes me feel less guilty about my very untidy rooms!
