Friend or Foe

My knitting friend and Stitches East 2006 roommate wrote a post on an e-list and called me a BFK because of knitting plans I had posted. BFK? Luckily she had it starred (*) and included the meaning at the bottom. But before I read the meaning I tried to figure it out: Black Female Knitter? Burger Freakin' King? Big Fat Knitter? Big Friend Knitter? Best Friend Knitter? Well, it turns out that it stands for Bona Fide Knitter. I'm not questioning it! I'm taking it and running with it. I have finally settled on a name for my blog. You heard it here first, well second, "Bona Fide Knitter" that's me!!!

Now that I've taken the first step and set up this blog I wonder if my roomie is friend or foe. Look what she has gotten me into! Actually I can't blame her. She just got in on the tail end of the blog idea and inadvertently coined my blog name. It was another of my knitting gurus and other friends who have been egging me on. I signed up for a blog once before, but after a long length of time without my ever publishing an entry, the blogmaster booted me off, and rightly so. I had a ton of excuses for myself back then: I needed to have pictures for my blog; in order to upload/download pictures quickly I needed Broadband; in order to take pictures I needed a new digital camera; I needed a better name for my blog; I needed blab for my blog. Well, I'm back. I have everything I need now and I'm a Bona Fide Knitter. You can't beat that combination.
