In March of 2005 I started this blog. Having just quit a full time job (which I loved) and finding time on my hands, I renewed my love of knitting. While researching new patterns I discovered that "the knitting blog" was a thing....like a BIG thing, so I decided to jump on that band wagon and give it a go. At the time we had 3 dogs, 4 cats and obscene amounts of yarn, so I decided to call it Woolly Mutts. Over the years it became less yarn and more life as our family expanded and my interests continued to ping pong all over the charts. Woolly Mutts helped me make new friends, stay in touch with old friends, and more than once gave me a place to organize my thoughts from chaos to creativity. It's been the map of my life and truly, a gift to myself.
Well, you know, life moves us onward and we have said goodbyes to all the cats (boy, I miss having a cat) and two of the mutts. Samten, the last survivor will be 14 this spring and though we wish he could stay with us forever, we know we are enjoying his last years with us. I still knit, but the stash is greatly diminished and I am much more discerning in both fiber and project. If feels like the time is right to put Woolly Mutts to bed.
This will be the last blog post here on Woolly Mutts. The blog itself isn't going anywhere. Until I find the time (and funds) to publish its entirety in a book form, Woolly Mutts will still hang out here, just in case I need it for reference or if you want to revisit a favorite post. To this day "Tales of Naked Barbies" continues to be a hit. This blog has served me well, but the time has come to make some changes. Henceforth, all blogging will be done at my new blog home "Ferocious Dandelion". We are still, as they say, under construction, but I'll link all the posts on facebook until our domain name takes hold.
To every single person who has spent any amount of time reading, commenting, and encouraging my writing life, I can't say thank you enough. Big hugs from my grateful arms and heart. Hope you'll stop by the new home and hang out with me there.
