Knitwhitties: A Little Knitting Nothing

I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex. - Oscar Wilde

I wonder

how these people who have had (knitting) blogs for years do it. Seriously. How on earth do you come up with something witty or amusing or profound so often? I'm finding it extraordinarily difficult. Part of this may be because I'm such a slow knitter. Yup, I'm STILL working on Vintage Velvet (still on the second skein) and I'm still working on the Booga Bag (about to start the third skein). Nope, nothing exciting, new or different about that. Haven't been to any LYS lately, either, so no nifty new yarn to report on. I'm enjoying my class, but did you really want to know that I think I've got cables nailed? I'm looking forward to being assigned my SP9 spoilee, but that's still a few weeks into the future. So really, there is nothing new to say. And no witty new way to say that there's nothing new here. So I guess I'll just end by quoting an old cliche: There is no new thing under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

    Perhaps I can offer a suggestion...
    what is the origin of the "booga bag"? It sounds so hippy.

    I know that feeling.. sometimes I have something to talk about, but I squelch it because I feel like I have nothing interesting to say, or can't say it in an interesting way. Then other times, I just don't have anything to say at all.

    I guess the really good knitting bloggers can make nothing into something really funny/interesting? Or maybe it's just practice at posting constantly, whether you feel like you have anything to say at all. Sometimes I like reading about what is tripping someone up or slowing them down, because it makes me feel better!

    And see? You made me think, when you thought you were just posting about not having anything to post!
