Today's featured blogger for blog week is a blog that I often go to and just cruise around regardless of new material or not. I love Carrie's aesthetic and find her whole style very inspirational so I hope you do too!
"My name is Carrie Bostick Hoge and my blog is Madder. (maddermade.com) I first started blogging sometime in 2006 under the name Fort Nest. It was a way to document my home and work life. Then, in 2008, I started Swatch Diaries blog so that my knitwear would have a home of its own. There I enjoyed swatching with new yarns, exploring stitches, finding inspiration, and presenting my knitwear designs. Madder blog is a continuation of Swatch Diaires, a place where I focus on my knitting.
The content on my blog is usually very focused on my knitting design process (images of yarn, swatches, fabrics) and then the finished results. I also love fabric and sewing, so I enjoy posting about garments I’ve sewn or fabric I’ve printed or purchased. I like to keep the content work related, but occasionally I share about inspiring places I have visited. And even more occasionally, I include photos of my children and blog about something personal.
Blogging has taught me that there are amazing knitters/crafters out there who share my passion for yarn and textiley goodness. The blog also continually helps to keep me on track and focused.
I find inspiration in nature, travel (hopefully I’ll get to do this again someday!), other artists and designers, and my children."
