Albuquerque Blogger Series



Hello! Thank you for your supportive comments about my knitting. I really appreciate it. I've wanted to get it right for years - I started trying before we had our kids! - and I'm so happy to finally be managing some of the basics. I have many of you to thank for the wonderful inspiration you provide on your blogs and with your beautiful projects. Someone suggested finding a group on Ravelry to help with my nascent knitting skills. I've found one which looks promising, called Newer Knitters. Join me over there if you think it could help you too!

I have some exciting news! I'm today's featured blog in the Albuquerque Bloggers Series on Deme's wonderful blog, House for Five. I came across Deme's blog on Houzz recently and was delighted to see that she was based in Albuquerque. Deme blogs about her home and family, as well as the many inspiring DIY projects they have tackled. I soon learned that they had moved to Ohio right before I discovered her blog and I was sorry to have just missed her, but it was great to connect with her and to see our city through her eyes. Deme noticed the dearth of Albuquerque-based home/lifestyle/DIY blogs and she decided to put together a blogger series featuring the few like-minded bloggers who live in our city. A couple of weeks ago, she invited us to take part in the series and I was so excited! It's important to me to highlight the best aspects of life here and to make the most of the great things our city has to offer. This is my first time being featured this way and I had a lot of fun preparing, by answering Deme's interview questions. It was fun to participate, and to connect with other local bloggers. I really appreciate the opportunity.

  1. Congratulations on the knitting and being featured on the blog. I can attest to how wonderful it is to make friends from the blogging world. I just wish I lived a bit closer to Portland, OR so I could see the "girls" more often. I'll pop on over there and check your interview out.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

Congrats on your knitting, oh my goodness you are well on your way. I love knitting but I have become rather impatient and prefer how quickly crochet progresses. Good luck

  10. I'm heading over to the blog now (and there's every chance that I'll add it to my blog-reading list). I'm sure the newer knitters group on Ravelry will give you all sorts of help that you might need and knittinghelp.com has lots of videos that cover most knitting techniques you might need.

  20. It's lovely to see your own city through another's eyes isn't it? Helps us to appreciate things we might have over looked. :) Congratulations on being featured!
    Well done on the knitting too! I was fortunate that I learned to knit before I learned to crochet. It's great to be able to switch from one to the other but I'm not very patient learning new skills so I don't tackle anything too complicated. I like the way crochet grows very quickly and on the other hand I love the small neat rows of knitting! Good luck on your new knitting journey, that baby blanket looks gorgeous!

  25. Hey Jennifer, what a fab little interview, a joy to read and find out more about you! Also, well done on your knitting, i look forward to seeing more in the future. I was the complete opposite to you, i could knit but all my attempts at crochet ended in frustration until i found a 'magic' book. I find now though that the more i do of both, the better i get at both, they bump each other along, so you may find that too. Good Luck and Enjoy! x
