When I was pregnant and when I first became a mum, I was desperate to hear other people's experiences of some of the things that I was going through. I wanted to work out how other mums managed to cope and make things work. I wanted to be inspired and to laugh to be told that things really can and do get better. And I found all of this, and loads more, in some really brilliant blogs. I want to try and do a bit of that sort of thing with Knittenden. And hopefully I'll eventually get around to doing some darned knitting and posting about that too. (And in lieu of having any of my own knitting to post, the picture above is of the gorgeous knitted bunny that Laura made for Samuel. He's a big fan).
