I have resisted the Pinterest addiction. My friend had sent me several invites over the last few months. I figured that I didn't need one more mindless thing to suck my time away. Because seeing how many projects that I am never going to knit were on my Ravelry queue, I knew that it would be overflowing and out of control in no time. So last week I had listed a couple of patterns on Craftsy, and said friend pinned them. Then reported to me how they were being re-pinned all over the place. And still I resisted. On Craftsy, I could see the pins on the patterns. Quite cool actually to see the numbers go up. Then the pins didn't show up for several days. I was worried. Was it because I wasn't on Pinterest? Did everyone unpin my patterns? What could be up with that? So I made friend walk me through setting up a Pinterest account. Why did I have so much trouble? Was it because I am blonde? Over 50? Stupid? Clueless? All of the above? Or maybe because I had resisted so long? I don't know. It did take me way longer than it should have to figure it out. And I am not going to get sucked into pinning everything/one and their dog. Really, I won't. So far, so good. 24 hours and I only have pinned my stuff and said friend's stuff.
Check out my latest bowl/basket in my Etsy shop! I went over to a friend's yard and rephotographed a lot of my bowls. I think that they show much better now!
