I’ve been putting off this post for a couple of hours now. Since I’ve arrived home from vacation I’ve done all sorts of things; unpacked, started some laundry, opened the mail, replied to comments on Instagram/twitter/Facebook, and given my kitty some loving. Not necessarily in that order. One thing I haven’t done is write a blog post which I promised myself I would do soon after I got home. So here goes…
I’ve been blogging here for almost three years. It has been fun and I have not regretted a single moment of it. But, I’ve gone from a naïve fifteen-year-old to a slightly-less naïve eighteen-year-old. I no longer have dreams of becoming a famous knitwear designer (Now, that’s an oxymoron), I’ve found that knitting for the sake of knitting is what works for me. No pressure, no deadlines (except for December 25th, that one always sneaks up on me.), just me, my fiber and a pair of sticks.
I’ve grown up and, sadly, I’ve outgrown this blog. I love it to pieces but it isn’t me as much any more. I have no need, no desire, to be Cleo Lititz anymore (Part of the deal I made with my mother when starting my blog was that I’d have a pseudonym). I still love knitting and blogging but, I need more room to grow. I am going off to college in the fall and with that fresh start in mind I decided to make another one. I am in the process of starting a new blog. It’s a big leap of faith that is somewhat scary, I’ve worked hard here and I’m fond of all of this, but it’s time.
Thank you all for being here and reading my ramblings. Especially to those of you who reached out and liked and/or commented and let me know I wasn’t blogging into the void. I love all of you and hope you’ll continue to follow me in my journey.
For the last time, Cleo Lititz
