When I read a magazine, I always read the editor’s page first. I like to hear what the person in charge has to say about the issue. I can honestly say, though, that I’ve never give much thought as to what it would be like to actually be the editor of a publication. Until I volunteered to edit an edition of Yarnival.
Let me tell you, this turned out to be harder than I thought it would! It was hard to be objective, it was hard to exclude entries, it was hard to organize the entries I chose. But I realized, as I read through all the entry posts (and I did read them all) that, while we all have knitting blogs, we actually post to our blogs for many different reasons. Sometimes we post to provide entertainment, sometimes we post to reflect, sometimes we post to celebrate a success or find commiseration over a failure. So, I organized this edition of Yarnival according to what I perceived to be the purpose of the post. Without further editorial comment, here is my edition of Yarnival!
Christine of Knitting on Trial posts 2nd Annual Heartland Knitting Retreat…………….or, way too much fun!
~In which Christine describes the joy of meeting fellow knitters.
gale of She Shoots Sheep Shots posts Sock Clubs
~In which Gale gathers sock club information into one extremely useful post. Unless you’re on that yarn diet thing. Then you should definitely stay away from this one.
Phew, that’s a lot of links. I hope you have fun perusing all these great blogs. Are you interested in editing Yarnival? Go here. Are you interested in submitting to Yarnival? Go here! Thanks for reading.
