cabin fever begins to creep in


I have been wanting to capture the amount of ice that is hanging on the bush and house outside of my living room window. It is totally unbelievable. I feel like our house is being swallowed by ice. As I was taking these pictures I realized that cabin fever is already kind of setting in. Not good. We need to get out and do things outside. I want to take Raf sledding, and I want to make a snowman among other things. But the problem is we don’t have any snow gear, like snow boots and long johns, and maybe some snowpants. I ordered some and am waiting for them to arrive. In the meantime, the cold and ice are keeping us in.



I’m sort of thinking out loud here, but I am also wondering what your opinion is,too. So please feel free to chime in with what you think of this idea. I’ve been thinking about moving my knitting blog, blacksheep, over to this blog, and just making it a category of this blog rather than it’s own separate website.

I’ve discovered that people can just subscribe to the feed of a certain category in a WordPress Blog, so those people who don’t want to hear me blather on about non-knitting things can just subscribe to the knitting feed. I guess my worry is that I will drive away the readers (all three of you 😉 ) who could care less about knitting. What do you think?

The fact is that I am only posting to the knitting blog once a week at this point. And I’m kind of feeling like it’s a chore in a way. I don’t think the content is very interesting because I don’t feel very excited about the writing. Since I’ve pigeonholed that blog into being only about knitting I’m afraid it has become a bit boring. The knitting blogs that I have read over the past two years that have included content other than knitting are really interesting to me, and I’m thinking that maybe my blog will be more interesting to others if it includes content other than knitting. I also read a few blogs that are not considered knitting, but include crafty posts ,knitting, and spinning and I find those blogs really interesting, too. When I’m reading blogs, I like the idea of getting to know the person a little. I guess it’s that voyeur in me. On the other hand, too much information is not good. I guess there is a fine line in blogging.

What do you all think of all of this? Would this blog totally suck if I had knitting stuff on it? Maybe just a once a week knitting post? Or would it not be that bad? Let me know.
