You Make My Day

Ok, Ashley says I made her day (I'm very honored!) and I'm home at a reasonable time (I only had to work 11 hours today. And no one has had to go to the ER -- yet. If Younger Son doesn't get his homework done soon I make no guarantees) I'm going post the rules with this. The object is this:
“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.”

And now I get to tell 10 people they made my day!!

1)Heather, who always makes my day. She's pretty and charming, warm and kind. I'm always amazed that she chose me for a friend! And she's an amazing knitter and great cook. Her family is lucky to have her.

2)Julia. Check out her shop! I love her yarn and fiber, (I'm hoping she'll sell me some) but she's also a truly great person and I'm fortunate to know her. She's made some kick-butt sweaters recently too!

3)Celtic Queen (Good thing she updated her blog today!) Who makes my day most of the time with her e-mails. She does have some good looking kids, though. (And they love the hand knits!)

4)Carly Her youth and enthusiasm make me feel almost young again. She's an amazing knitter, and she's beautiful enough to wear handknits everywhere and carry it off!

5)Elizabeth Perry. Check out the drawing for today -- It's a Chibi! Her drawings make my day every day. I've mentioned her here before, but it bears repeating.

6)Be*Mused She's working on some amazing mittens right now.

7)Holly Who like me prefers plain knit socks. And knitting for babies! What could be more fun than that?

8)Taniwa This blog is everything I look for in a blog. Tanya updates frequently and she includes lots of juicy details about life in Japan.

9)Steel City Knitter Knitting, crochet, the occasional quick recipe.

10)Krafty1 She's dealing with alot of snow right now, but has warm cookies and knitwear to keep her warm.

I would have included Ashley because she really did make my day by giving me the award, but she already did it and I didn't want to make her think of 10 more bloggers. The same with DPUTiger.


Ashley said...'re too sweet! :) It's a joy to read your blog!

Thank you for the mention!!! I'm so thankful for the internets. I'd probably still be friend-free in my hometown without blogging and knitting!
