As a knitter, and as a blogger, I am bound by some invisible universal law to be enthralled with three of the most popular knitting blogs out there.  And yet, I couldn't be less interested.

I'm bad.  Very bad.  Perhaps a disgrace.

I find Wendy boring.  The Yarn Harlot is sometimes entertaining when she's not on book tour.  And even "Saint Brenda" loses my attention from time to time.

I guess my real issue is that I care more about knowing the people who are knitting the socks and the shawls and the impossibly complicated colorwork sweater, than I care about the actual items themselves.  I like having a window into someone else's life - someone that I might be friends with in real life, or maybe just know about.

That's why I love to read Crazy Aunt Purl and XRK.

Am I unusual?  Or do you too find yourself drawn to the kid in the corner and find the popular folks uninteresting, your area of interest being what it may?

  2. Also, my interest is people. i find them fascinating, especially the ones that aren't as popular or don't fit in. They're the interesting ones. i tend to dislike popular people immensely. i think i've fit into the "in crowd" on occasion and the "outsiders" a lot and the "in-betweens" the most. i'd always prefer to not be popular. i feel dull.


Thank you so much for taking a moment to leave a comment. I love hearing from you!
