The Medium is the Message

I miss Google Reader. I thank Jasmin of the Knitmore Girls Podcast for learning how to manage the blogs I read. And then things changed. I am not keeping up as well as I used to, I don't feel connected, and I'm sure I've lost a few all together.
Now I'm using . It's Ok. I may learn to love it in time.
Here are some blogs that I follow regularly. These writers and photographers have brought so much to my life, knitting and otherwise. Some of them I have been reading and following for years before Some of them are a bit newer. But I crave ideas, opinions, and the beauty of every day life, and I thank them, you.

1.Religion Outside the Box. Rabbi Brian is open hearted and open minded and doesn't mind scolding me for my selfishness, or encouraging me to look at things in a new way.

2. Completely Cauchy. Chawney is unlike anyone I've ever met and I love our little friendship. She is one of the most creative and productive crafters I know of.

3. Posie Gets Cozy. Alicia is the neighbour I wish I had. I love what she shares and always feel comforted by the beauty of her life.

4. Enjoying the Small Things.  Kelle is young and beautiful, brave and wise. I love how she embraces girly things and nurtures her family. I love her book, Bloom, too.

5. Mason Dixon Knitting. This is an original knitting blog, in the form of letters between friends. They have become authors and keepers of knowledge, as well as great comedians.

6. We Heart Yarn. I hate to go even a few days without seeing a post by neuroknitter. She always answers comments, too.

7. This Week on TED. Always ideas, always well presented.

8. Attic 24. Lucy shares her life and crafting in the north of England. Such a lovely person with colour all around her.

9. Pioneer Woman. I have had such pleasure from the cooking, ranching and building ideas on this blog. I've never seen her show, but I have bought her cook books several times, and still don't have one of my own.

10. Life's a Stitch. This was my entry drug into the world of on-line knitting. I searched for a yarn store near by and came up with a blog! Li introduced me to the Yarn Harlot and Urban Yarns and so many good things. We have even had lunch once. Our lives have both changed so much since then, and I appreciate reading about hers.

Those are the big ones. My list has become very long and sometimes unmanageable. These blogs led me to podcasts, but that's a post for another day.
