I am very flattered that the lovely and talented Suzanne (of Yarnhog) bequeathed me with an award! If you haven't read her blog before, be sure to check it out -- she is a master when it comes to seeing the potential in beautiful yarns in unfortunate colors. Check out this. And this. Mad overdyeing skills, I tell you.
Now, I get to pass the award on to bloggers I love!
The rules of the award are as follows: 1. The winner can put the logo on their website/blog. 2. Add a link to the person who gave you the award. 3. Nominate at least five other websites/blogs. 4. Provide links to the nominated websites/blogs. 5. Leave a message at each blog/website telling them they've been given the award.
I love way more than five blogs -- my bloglines list is pretty long -- so I decided to highlight a few which I think do a great job of balancing the crafty-blog stuff with the mommy-blog stuff.
So, in no particular order, I would like to spread the bloggy love around to:
- Fickleknitter, who also incidentally has designed some very cute patterns (check out these reversible baby Mary Janes -- adorable!)
- Oiyi, whose recent success with Kool-Aid dyeing inspired me to try my hand at it again after a long hiatus. (She also makes kickass baked goods, including a totally gorgeous wedding cake. How cool is that?)
- Knitting Betty, who has not blogged in a few weeks. (I am selfishly hoping that this award will bribe her into posting again. Is that wrong?)
- The Two Black Sheep, "Ava" and "Lola," who routinely crack me up and have done me the priceless service of introducing me to both the fresh-ground Whole Foods honey-roasted peanut butter, and Blue Moon ale. (Good stuff.)
- Ruth, whose quilting and crafting are awesome, even though her former quilting guild members were decidedly non-awesome. (The new group sounds much better -- go Ruth!)
And now, since I'm always trying to strive for crafty-blog and mommy-blog balance, here is a completely gratuitous picture of Measure playing with one of the Halloween pumpkins we carved. He loves to take their "hats" on and off.
He's kind of obsessed with the pumpkins. He even noticed the little tiny pumpkin icon above the Ravelry logo, and spent a full minute excitedly staring and pointing at the "dundin," making sure that I realized that yes, there was a pumpkin on the computer, and yes, that was the most awesome thing ever. Good times.
