Let's be friends

 Let's be friends
Avisannschild, from She Reads and Reads, honoured me with this award. Isn't it lovely?

  • Blogs that receive the Lets Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.
Only eight? Oh dear. Hmmm.

First, go and visit Avisannschild and meet the 7 other bloggers she chose. Often (usually), the blogger who gives me an award has friends I want to meet. You will, too.

My own blogging friends are kind, generous, funny, and dear. Allow me to introduce you to a few.

  • Paula, the Bassettknitter, whose insights, photographs, and meditations (and most adorable Basset, Elsie) are constant delights.
  • Amy, Rena, and Claire of A Tradition of Quirky Artists. (Hint: follow this link forward. Our weekly knitting group is insane. And don't miss The Running of the Brides.)
  • Kelly, LICraftgal, whose fiber was fibernapped. (See above. Did I mention that our weekly knitting group is insane? If you're on Ravelry, start here...)
  • Bridget, at The Ravell'd Sleave, who recently went to a penitentiary. As an employee.
  • Helen (OfTroy on Ravelry), Golden Apples, keeper and teacher of more cast-ons than I would master in 4 lifetimes.
  • Kim, HandEyeCrafts, longtime friend and co-conspirator in a quest to make the world aware of Heifer International. I'm linking to this post because I love the tushies. Kim also hosts the yearly Knitter's Hunk competition. Alas, my choices never win.
  • Penny, the Penguin Girl. We met online, and then we met in-person when the Harlot did a book-signing in NYC. Penny has written about everything from books and knitting to weekly Parshahs, and has not only become a dear friend, but also has been my inspiration to learn more about my own religion and heritage.
  • And - you. Leave me a comment, tell me about yourself. Let's get acquainted!
