It is hard to believe that it has been nine years (as of yesterday) since my first Through the Loops blog post.
My kids were 12, 12, and 14 at the time:
I was much younger too:
And we lived on our hill with the beautiful view.
A lot has changed in that time. My oldest has graduated from college, my girls are in the final weeks of their junior year, I have gone from casual knitter to professional designer, I've written and published a book, and we now live in a New York City apartment with a different kind of view.
Thank you to all of you who have stopped by over the years to read my posts. Your support and comments have meant the world to me. I have met some of my favorite people because one day in April 2006 I decided to start a blog. There have been times that my attention to this blog has lagged, but I remain committed to continuing, even if the posts are less frequent than they once were.
