In an effort to wrangle more control over my online content, I'm examining my blog post tags. This has given me a chance to look hard at the content of this blog, and see the bigger picture. From the start this has been a place for me to share what I'm up to creatively. Very rarely have I posted something on here that wasn't created by me. Original content.
So this process of tag analysis led me to delete a few tags, and create a few new ones. The two primary content types are 'Craft' and 'Creative.' As you can see they branch out into their own subcategories. Blog posts are tagged with the primary tag, then the secondary tag, then the tertiary tag where applicable.
Interestingly, I realized the tag 'Graphic Design' was unnecessary. I didn't need it. As a primary tag, 'Creative' covered everything better, and the secondary tags proved to be more accurate. I guess that was weird to me since this blog started as a graphic design blog. I dunno, whatever. I'll be dropping a few others eventually, too.
This post is tagged with a new secondary tag that I've added, 'Process.' I hope that by sharing creative process with you that you may find it helpful in understanding your own content. I'm not gonna act like I'm the king of content or anything, I'm really not. I suck actually which is why I'm doing this in the first place.
Here's another light weight knit for the springtime. People seem to dig Reflect Bravo, so I made one in charcoal. I mentioned previously that I don't have much of this color, and that got me thinking of solutions.
What I ended up doing was combining yarn recycled from two sweaters. They're both charcoal merino, but one is slightly darker than the other. As I knit this up the only discernible difference was that the combined color was lighter when viewed from afar, but that's it. The heathered nature of charcoal yarns seems to visually equalize the hue values.
So yeah, it looks pretty great. I think I'm gonna focus on these high gauge pieces for the shop during the warmer months. I'd love it if my shop was nothing but high gauge. I'll just have to work on that.
