Today I'm linking up with (fellow Aussie) Dawn's blog As Sweet As Cinnamon. Dawn is having a giveaway and asks the question: What's the reason behind your blog name?
I started this blog because a friend had a blog and it sounded like fun. We had met at the Knitters' Guild and we both had "knitting blogs". Sadly my friend no longer posts on her blog -- she has discovered Twitter! Because I like to knit all year round, not just in winter as my mother (who taught me to knit) does, I called my blog "Too Hot to Knit? Never!" The URL was the result of me thinking it was cool to use numerals in my address.
A couple of years ago I joined a site called ravelry.com, and my user-name there is never2hot2knit. For the sake of consistency, I changed my blog name to "Never Too Hot To Knit".
Last year, my DD and I discovered patchwork and quilting but we didn't take it too seriously until this year when we began classes with Elizabeth Wallace of Aussie Patches in May. I was hooked! And my knitting output decreased dramatically!
A couple of months ago, in acknowledgement that this is no longer a "knitting" blog yet reluctant to start another one, I changed the layout of my blog and the title to reflect who I am now: someone who makes stitches with knitting needles or a sewing machine (and occasionally even a crochet hook)!
Now, I'm off to my sewing machine and perhaps tonight, some knitting in front of the television!
Thanks, Dawn, for that bit of fun!
And since I still have a "small blog", I'm also linking up here at Lily's Quilts:
