The Joy of Wool

Hello, my name is Tracey, and I have a very normal relationship with yarn. Just kidding!

My knitterly love is what my wool-adoring friends and I call “normal for a knitter”. It may seems strange to outsiders, but for those of us in the stitchy cult, er I mean club, it is completely understandable to be spending *that much* on a ball or two of Noro.

Completely rational wool debt aside, I know many knitters who, like me, can’t pass a yarn shop without going inside, take several knitting projects with them on any trip “just in case”, and scoff when their partners suggest they “don’t need knitting to go to the cinema” (although in fairness I underestimated how interesting Elysium would be and totally ballsed up that simple ribbed scarf).

I’ve started this blog to share my knitting love with the world (the modern day equivalent of singing from the rooftops, I suppose?) and to lower the risk of me driving the non knitters in my life away with my constant yarn related chatter. It will be an outlet for me and I hope it puts me in touch with lots of other people out there who understand the joy of needles, wool, and swearing at complicated lace charts.
