I don't know if I've explained my reasoning behind not reciprocally friending people with this journal. I plan on posting ALL of this journal as public entries. That way, I can only friend knitting communities / knitting blogs. They'll be not only my default view, but also the default view for anyone who looks at this journal's friends page.
So, by not friending you back on this journal, I've made it so you can get your extra knitting blog fix whenever you want by checking out http://www.livejournal.com/karebyknit/friends
And I can read your journals via my main journal.
Just thought you might want to know.
