What's in a name?

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, 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:

  1. Fun story! It's always neat to see how people come up with their online names. Going to have to check out your friend's blog!

  2. Hi Lynne, great story, i will go and check out your links, thanks!

  3. If the blog is just a reflection of us, it should grow as we do! A wonderful adventure, isn't it?!

  4. fun story and the subtitle is perfect.

  5. Thanks for sharing your story! I like the URL ;)

  6. Love your story. And your blog name. It certainly is never too hot to stitch where I live.

  7. Thanks for sharing the story behind your name, it's always interesting to find out.


Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
