It’s Amy. Way back when, I started Knitty as a blogger. Here’s the oldest post I can find. It was just me talking to you. Over the years, I’ve had the most wonderful people helping with/taking over (bless them! I needed a break from the whole thing!) the blog. Massive shoutout to Jillian Moreno and Kate Atherley for their brilliance, humour and charm for many years. They published on a regular schedule and created such great content! It was a lot of work for them, maintaining this place. So we decided it was time to shut’er down.
With the world shut down as it has been over the last 10 months, I’ve had more time than usual. I missed writing as I discovered new things I was excited about, and that’s how I’ve always blogged. I used to write when I had something to say. Having to push out content on a schedule shut my brain down. So I’m gonna go back to what worked for me.
