Critical Mass

When I stopped writing on this blog it wasn't a concious decision; it was a conspiracy of circumstances.  All sorts of things happened, in a short space of time, and it all became too much.

However, when it comes to receiving emails from various people in various countries; when it comes to being gently quizzed in Yorkshire; and, worst (or best) of all, when it comes to being quizzed in my own living room as to "What's happened to your blog?" (by someone who won't mind me saying that she doesn't know one end of a knitting needle from the other); I think it's reached Critical Mass.  The nuclear chain reaction has begun and there's nothing more to be done.  

I never stopped knitting but I don't know that I can document everything that's been on the needles in the last year and a bit.  Let's just start from where we are and see how we go.  How does that sound?
