Knitting by Judy @ 1:05 PM

I have been slammed this week — slammed I say — by meetings and teleconferences and discussions and training and study. And they have wanted me to get a bit of work in on the side. I tell you this, gentle reader, not so you will commiserate with me, although you may if you so desire. I tell you this as a poor excuse for why I am so far behind in telling you things that in ordinary circumstances I’d be shouting from the rooftops immediately. (Actually, I usually like my day job, even though it does not involve knitting.) Please hang with me while I catch up over the next few posts.


Last week Sharon, who blogs at Chickenlips Knitting and dyes amazing yarn as Stitchjones, gave me this You Make My Day Award. And that what I so love about the internet community — especially (as I’m sure you could guess) the knitters. When I’m just having one of those days, something like this pops up and brightens everything. I am so grateful.

By the way, Sharon’s new online shop is up and getting ready for business, so go over and check out the amazing things that she can do with color.

The official rules of this award are: Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.

There are so, so many people whose blogs I love that it’s very hard to limit myself to 10. Yes, yes, I know how I usually am about those rule things. But once I got going, half the blogs on the internet would be listed. So I will name only 10. Some of these writers may not even know I’m lurking around and reading. But each and every one makes me smile.

So, in no particular order:

Bogie at Knit Flix
Kat at As Kat Knits
Knitnana at Knitnana
Larissa at Stitch Marker
Helen at Knitting In The Shadows
The Mother of Chaos at Tales From The Den Of Chaos
Julie at Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History
HPNY Knits at When the going gets tough, the tough get knitting!
Shelly at Butternut Woolens
~Kristie at Guilty Pleasures

And the 11th, dear gentle reader, is You! To know you are reading this makes me smile. Big time.
