Back in the days of the wild, wild internet, I had a website. If I remember correctly, it had a bright purple background. I posted some of my bad poetry there. I honestly don’t know if anyone but me ever saw the website, but teenage Teish thought that it was very cutting-edge to have one.

Fast forward a few years past a wedding and the births of my three oldest kids, and I decided to start my own blog. At the time, knitting blogs were in their heyday, and I read a lot of them. I had visions of joining their ranks and becoming a knitting blogger. So I picked a free blog service, included “teishknits” in the web address, and named my blog… Tea and Conversation. I rarely wrote about knitting.

A little while later, my IT staff said to me, “You know, we could get you your own domain.” That’s when was born.

I’ve gone for a cleaner, pared down look overall. I had to keep just a little pop of color though! It’s the perfect look for a writer.

That’s what Teish Knits has always been about for me, a place to be a writer.
