Stating the obvious

Hello to any loyal blog-readers who are left! It's pretty obvious that I've kind of run out of steam on the blog recently. I'm sorry not to have posted anything since May -- between the dissertation and my teaching I don't have tons of time for crafting recently, much less for blogging about it.

So for at least the time being, I'm going to be continuing to do what I have been doing for the last 6 months -- i.e., not posting any updates to the blog.

I hope that as I make some progress on the dissertation my energy for Looking Glass Knits will be rekindled, and I do plan in the future to return to regular posts. But I wouldn't look for that to happen anytime soon. In the meantime, if any of you are interested in affect in late medieval English literature of the fin'amors tradition, I'm your woman. I know of someone who's blogging his dissertation, but I suspect if I tried that I'd drive away the last vestiges of you who still come around to visit Looking Glass Knits! I can see it now: "I came looking for a hat pattern, I left with a quotation by Brian Massumi..."

Thanks for your well-wishes and gentle prodding, you readers who have posted comments and questions in the last few months. I wish you lots of joy in your knitting!

Wonderful news!!! Dissertation above all else!!! Some of us are not "just knitters, or crafters"...perhaps you can have a Facebook page to post your journey's progress??? Most interesting!!!
I wish you much success...and will pass on the news to my group of friends....I am sure that they, too would like to hear about Chaucer, Massumi, et all!!!

Good luck on your dissertation. Even though you'll be quiet for a while, your blog will still sit in my google reader if you decide to take it up again. Plus, I can always see what you're working on in Ravelry. :)

I can very well see myself not blogging for a long time! I'll keep you on my blogroll for sure and will enjoy any post you write whenever your heart tells you too! Cheers!

Hope all is well and you plan to return to blogging, with your inspirational crafts, soon.
At my group breakfast yesterday, I was asked "whatever happened to the young knitter from New York"....so I stopped by to ask!
Take care,
