It’s incredibly nice to find out you have been nominated by a peer you admire for a blog award.  Thank you so much, Knitting Siamese!  You should check out her beautiful blog for its stunning knitting, photography, and photos of a certain mischievous Siamese cat…


I’ve been thinking about who to nominate for the past day, and the more time I spend thinking about it, the more of my favorite blogs get nominated by others!  So instead of playing by the rules, I’m going to let you peruse my blogroll on the side.  These are the blogs that I read on a regular basis and they all offer something special.  Check out a blog or two that you haven’t been to before.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  Consider yourself nominated, if you so choose, and pass on the love with these things in mind:

1. Copy the award to your site.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers.
4. Link to those on your blog.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominated.

I had a little bit of a stash infusion over the weekend, picking up yarn for specific projects I have in the works.  That’s my new modus operandi, by the way: buy yarn as I intend to use it.  So far so good, although I am starting to crave some new sock yarn as I have a trip to Webs coming up soon…

These two might have something to do with a baby blanket for a certain sister of mine who is expecting her first baby in May.  Since she is a devoted reader of this blog and had infiltrated Ravelry, this will have to be a completely stealth project.  But I thought it would be fun to give her a little tease and show the colors!

I have a variety of projects in mind, and will be narrowing the list just as soon as I finish up some knitting housekeeping around here.  Damn all those wips that just won’t finish themselves!  Where are the little finishing elves that come out at night and knit a few inches on each project?  I swear I feel I am knitting constantly and yet nothing is coming off the needles!  I don’t know how some of you knit a pair of socks in a week, or an entire sweater in two.  I’ll be lucky to finish half a sock this week!

  1. I’ve visited some of the blogs on your list, but now I’ll be sure to check out the rest!

    And lucky you, with the trip to Webs coming up! I’ve only been once, but I bought SO much yarn…

  2. Very glad to see that you are feeling better and congratulations on the award. Your sister is going to love that blue! Happy knitting, etc……..Love, Mom

  3. Can you see my eyes *squinting* at you and my head shaking as I want to know, what is it that you are knitting?!?

  4. Can’t wait to see what you do for the baby. I’m planning on doing some baby knits in cotton-ease, too. I love that stuff. It feels good and it’s easy care for Mom and Dad.
