November, being my birth month, has always been special to me. For this reason, I like the challenge of posting a blog entry every day for this month. It makes me think about things differently and to share some of my writing and life with anyone who might be reading. I have never had much of a blog following but I think the practice of writing daily makes me better able to teach wrting and relate to the timetable and deadlines that I give my students and therefor has a value even without the readership. So welcome to 30 days of blog posts at Knitting 40 Shades of Green.
