i've got a lovely bunch of coconuts, er, i mean, knitting blogs . . .

So, the fabulous Leann, clearly having forgotten that my blog posting has suffered tremendously of late due to me sucking, bestowed this prestigious award upon me:

And now that I've clapped my hands and squealed girlishly and otherwise overracted and basked in the glory of my (completely undeserved) award, it's time for me to pass it along to some other fantastic bloggers:

Confessions of a Clumsy Knitter: She does scary stuff I'm afraid of, like steeking. I hope if I keep reading I'll absorb some of her knitting bravery through osmosis. Also, I don't think she's ever had a mail order yarn purchase not go awry--which probably sucks for her, but is amusing to me. ;)

Never Not Knitting: Love her stuff (it always turns out gorgeous), and her podcast--especially those special yarn buying coupon codes!

Exercise before Knitting: After I caught this post, I was sucked in--I can't imagine creating anything this perfect out of scrap yarn. Plus original patterns and helpful maths.

A Little Loopy: Some cutie cute baby stuff here--all of my friends are starting to pop out babies, so this one is inspiring.

The Yarniad: The knitting is gorgeous, as are her own patterns. Plus she's a little quirky (see recent post featuring Star Trek costumes).


Of course, these are just a few standouts from the lengthy list of knitting blogs I read, all of which are inspiring and deserve kudos.

So knitting. Um, I've done some, but not much, honestly. My stash and I are currently separated. Which is a long overdue story for another, hopefully prompt, post.

And despite all of the good thoughts coming my way, I did not finish my friend's shawl before her wedding, which is too bad, because it was pretty shawl-ish weather. Sigh. I guess it will go to the next person I know who gets married?

or maybe I just miss your blog so much that I was bribing you to come back! Did it work?
