I’ve been writing this blog for about 4 years now, and this year has not only brought me my first award, I’ve also received a second!
Thanks to Kate for the “I Love Your Blog” award.
It’s amazing to me that people are interested in my communist rantings, my x-rated language, and my unconventional slant on life. It’s wonderful to me to have a record of these past few years, and it’s made me wish that I had started blogging years ago. Having other people appreciating it is a bonus.
So, in that spirit, I’d like to encourage some other bloggers that I love.
1. Pom Pom
Funny, spirited, intelligent, and thoughtful. Sally’s blog is a recent addition to the blogosphere, but a welcome one.
OMG is this woman amazing. Two gorgeous kids, one rapidly becoming a grown up, one chasing Inigo for the cutest kid in the world prize. Tina Knits, sews, crochets, cooks, writes, computes and runs a business. She doesn’t sleep much (good thing that kid is cute), so the blogging has slacked off of late, but she’s worth sticking in your news feed.
3. Random Knits
If you haven’t already heard of Donna, you are a bit behind. I don’t think I knew quite how “famous” she was until after I knew her. Donna knits amazing lace, sews fabulous dance costumes for her gorgeous daughter, and is owned by Twinke the Wonderbunny.
4. Brave and Slightly Crazy
Emma is another mad scientist, living and working in the middle of nowhere, with sheep outside her office window. Harassed and abused by the nefarious Chook ( a “Love” bird), and practising extreme knitting, her blog is worth looking up despite the interminable talk of marathon running and toenails falling off. It was Emma who talked me through my first lace knitting, and it was Emma who first trusted me to be the celebrant at her wedding.
