Stephanie put out a call on the Twitter-Bat Phone this morning about the “Class of 2004” knitbloggers on the occasion of her anniversary.
Ok, lets do this. Class of (knitblogging) 2004, still online.. sound off! (please retweet, so we can find them all)

According to the Internet Archive, they first archived knitgrrl.com in August 2004, thought I know it was online before then, as a sub-site of my old personal website. In fact, I remember moving over those posts from the old blog to the Knitgrrl domain… hang on, let’s see what the earliest post is.
*runs off to look*
27 June 2002! In which we learn where and why I learned to knit, and I make an off-color joke. So, 12+ years later, I guess not much has changed… EXCEPT FOR EVERYTHING. This website gave me my purpose. It took me where Â I needed to be. It brought me from a failed relationship that more or less razed my then-life to the ground (I sold my house. I left my job. I moved 500 miles away with my boyfriend, and THEN we broke up…) to doing what I love, namely writing and editing and designing and publishing and COMMUNICATING like crazy in a zillion different ways with all of you.
Not bad, internet. Not bad at all. And cheaper than therapy, all things considered. So thank you!
