(blushing) thank you! Bridget of The Ravell'd Sleave named me for this award. (blushing) thank you!
I met Bridget through Knit the Classics, which no longer exists on the web, but which lives on in Knitting Nineteenth-Century Novels on Ravelry. (We're reading Vanity Fair right now. What a treat!) Go and visit her to read about how we met, and about our friendship.
Now, I'm supposed to nominate 4 blogs I love. Only four? Gracious. Ok, then - in no particular order:
Knitting Nineteenth-Century Novels is moderated by two women, including my friend Pixie Girl, a/k/a the Happy Haunted Turtle. Not only is she funny, smart, literary, and a haiku poet, but she also is on her way to becoming a librarian! I love her blog!
Penny, a/k/a Penguin Girl has been like a long-lost sister since we met. The story is here. Penny writes about about books, food, Judaism, knitting, writing, travelling, organizing, photography... and I love her blog.
Kata, a/k/a Kataish and I met through a swap, and we've been amusing each other ever since by writing real letters and enabling each other as our
Kata's fiancee, Will, blogs at Musings & Rants, where he writes (really, really well) about all sorts of things, from politics and religion to observations about London, Ontario. I'm looking forward to meeting him and Kata next year in Manhattan. I love Will's blog.
The fine print:
1. Post the award on your blog.
2. Add a link (in this case, links) to the person/people who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least 4 others.
4. Leave a comment on their blog so they can pass it on.
