Star Shaped turns 15!
15 years ago yesterday, I sat down at my computer and bought my first domain name. I cannot believe so much time has passed since I first started this site. I’ve written many posts wishing my domain a happy birthday, and I never thought I’d be writing in this blog for so long. Here’s my very first post, if you’re interested.
I’ve recently added all my old archives here. Some I had accidentally forgotten to back up when I restarted the blog, but through the wonders of archive.org, I recovered most of them. I’m happy to have all my old knitting and spinning posts, especially the one when I first tried spindle spinning. No, Aubrey, handedness doesn’t matter when you’re spinning!
This blog has seen me through many parts of my life. When I started this blog, I was 19, had just received my driver’s license, and was about to start my sophomore year of college. I was a few months away from beginning my first serious relationship and I still lived in Massachusetts. Today I am 34, married, and living on the west coast. Many events passed since August 30, 2000, and I’m happy to have documented most of them here.
Happy birthday, Star Shaped!
