It's been tens years since I started my first blog in 2006! In the mean time, I went through undergrad, masters, marriage and have been working full time for almost 4 years. Looking back, I am really glad that I kept a (not so complete) record of what I made, what I bought, what I suffered and what I accomplished. Indeed, I also used to write about life in QQ zone and MSN space. I also occasionally (and still) post in Weibo, WeChat Moments, Facebook and Instagram. Once in a while I would enjoy pinning for 30 minutes in Pinterest. Hmmm... Seems like I am so keep up with the social media! The only place that I never have an account is Twitter.
Today I hang out with an Instagram friend at a Starbucks near my house, and we talked a lot about the knitting community (while finishing our socks). I found I have missed a lot about the "hit" stuffs and designers in the knitting world! Just now, I went through a Toronto Yarn Shop blog that I created in 2006, and was surprised to see many of the local yarn shops that I visited 10 years ago have disappeared. Maybe it's time to refresh the blog entries and put in new ones (and include fabric shops). If you are in the GTA area, please share with me your favorite shops and I will take a visit.
