Knitters and weavers named Penelope

I have just discovered another knitting Penelope and fellow blogger. AMAZING! Its got me pondering how many more knitting and weaving Penelopes might be out there in cyberspace.  Let me know if you are one and if you have any stories to share about your name.

My friend has just lent me a copy of The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood after reading my piece on Living up to your name.  Looks an interesting read.  As my motivation for writing my CBT essay has now completely evaporated (not that much existed in the first place) I think its time for some literary distraction.

Hi Penelope! Yes, I'm a knitter/spinner with the best name there is - just like you.

Love your blog...I started mine a few years ago but stopped writing after awhile - the goal for 2012 is to post more often (I won't say "daily" because that's too much of a risky thing to say) as a means of keeping on top of my spinning and knitting.

Happy 2012!

Lovely to hear from you and Happy New Year to you too. I agree about daily posting. The pressure to post can take away the enjoyment of writing the blog. When something starts to feel like a chore I'm very good at procrastination! So like you I haven't set myself the goal to post daily. I'm going for a more slow blog approach.
