I made someone's day! Yay!

WeirdRockStar awarded me with this today.

(Found the image on another knitblog, don't know if it's an "official" one...)

Apparently, my blog is one of her favorites! Thank you! That makes my day. I've only recently started reading your blog, but I really like it. You are one funny knitter!

I'm also going to pass on this award to some of my favorite blogs. Trying to pick out a few of all of the blogs I read was a real ordeal, but these are the ones that first came to mind (in no particular order).

Oh, Mr Tweed! What can I say about this blog that would do it justice? Every time there is a new post I can't make my way to the blog fast enough. Definitely a huge inspiration, especially when it comes to color and "ambience". He also has a great eye for picking out the perfect yarn for projects.

Another blog that I stalk obsessively, waiting for new posts. Ms. Kettu ;) seems to have the same to-knit-list I have. Lovely, interesting projects that always have that extra something I look for. I also enjoy reading her texts. On top of that, she is a diligent comment-answerer.

What's not to love about this blog! Mielitty always picks the most interesting subjects for her posts. Sometimes it's about knitting or other crafts, sometimes it's about something else. I especially enjoy the occasional insights into "how women should behave", based on older handbooks and instructions. And the knitting, of course!

Lene writes beautifully about her life and knitting in northern Finland. I really enjoy her use of language. There is a tone to it that is almost calming, soothing. And the knitting is interesting, especially her own designs.

THE place to go if you love socks! Her knitting is always perfectly executed and photographed. This is another knitter with the same to-knit-list as mine, especially when it comes to socks.

Such great stories, photography, knitting, ideas. It's always exciting to see what the next post will be about. She seems to put a lot of thought into her knitting and her writing, and I really enjoy reading her posts. Lolly is also the brain behind Project Spectrum.

Very interesting projects, that always have that extra something. A blog that makes me think about the possibilities that every new knitting project brings with it. Her posts also makes me laugh, because she has such a good sense of humour.

Thank you all for blogging! You make my day!

Thank you, my dearest.
I have no life, hence I knit.
Keep up the fabulous work!
