Gotta love Twitter

August 4, 2010

Have you followed me on Twitter yet?
You should!
I love going through in the morning when I wake up and see what’s up in the craft world. My routine is check a handful of stocks, (btw CNBC is reporting that bacon-pork bellies- in the past month has gone from $100ish to $109ish) Gross. Then I read the paper, then check facebook, then I scan through Twitter for a bit.

But no, I’m not going to talk about pork bellies this morning though. I wanted to share this great blog I ran across via a twitter buddy urbanknitfit. I think you’ll really love her… and she’s in Maine!

I’m nosey and I always like to read to the about because you get an idea of what you can expect in a blog. abigail:
I’m the knitter of Urban Knitfits and an MFA graduate. I sell my knitting, art, and home goods through my 3 etsy shops! I grew up hearing “oh well you could make that!” from my mother in response to almost anything. This blog is a recording of my creative adventures.
