As you know – or don’t know – I am going to develop a knitting course, to be given this fall in the East part of Amsterdam and I created this blog to practice making the website for this course: breieninoost.nl
This post is my very first attempt to publish something on-line. I am going through the WordPress instruction video, but am a little impatient and want to see results!
I think I also prefer learning by trial & error instead of going through all the instructions. I guess it will have to be a combination of both..
While I practice, I will keep a record of my experiences in this blog – until the real website goes live. There are a lot of new things to learn. I have made a start with collecting materials for my site:
- images of self-made knitted materials
- other types of illustrations
- text for the site, in English and in Dutch
- links to woolshops, other knitting courses and social knitting media
One illustration sample:
This was the book that teachers used for handcrafts classes in primary school: “Useful Handicrafts”. Although I went to school in the sixties, the style and content of teaching was totally fifties – very old-fashioned. I found and ordered a copy of this book on internet and can’t wait to hear it drop in my mailbox! It will bring back memories of dropped stitches, sweaty needles and a mean teacher.
