The Knit & Crochet Blog Week - taking part

Knit and crochet blogger Eskimimi had a great idea for an event. Join in and blog about a specific subject (see the list below) each day in the week of Mon 26 April - Sunday 2 May 2010.  There is a wildcard topic if you would like to pick that one day.

It sounds really good fun and I decided to take part.

If you'd like to know more then hop on over to the FAQs - you can also click through to the Ravelry group from there.

There won't be a central list as an estimated 60-100 people have expressed an interest, but use the tagging system and then each blog entry will be googleable (if that's a word. If it is, it's unpronouncable!). Use the following tags:

Day One: knitcroblo1
Day Two: knitcroblo2
Day three: knitcroblo3
Day Four: knitcroblo4
Day Five: knitcroblo5
Day Six: knitcroblo6
Day Seven: knitcroblo7
Wild Card: knitcroblowc

The topics are:
Mon 26 April: Starting Out
Tue 27 April: An Inspirational Pattern
Wed 28 April: One Great Knitter
Thu 29 April: A New Skill
Fri 30 April: Location, Location, Location
Sat 1 May: Revisit a past Finished Object
Sun 2 May: What a Yarn

And the wildcard topic: All Tooled Up (in case one of the others doesn't inspire).
Check out Eskimimi's blog for more information about the topics etc.
It will be nice to do something as part of a community!
