This honor has been given to some really fantastic bloggers so I am quite pleased to be included. I was nominated by the Fantabulous Del of Cozy’s Place. She will always be included on any list of my favorite bloggers. I always find myself repeating something she has written about. She has generously shared her journey as a freelance writer with us, both the good and bad. Her graceful handling of the stress make me want to be better.
I also love to see what these ladies are up too.
A Mingled Yarn- She always has great knits and fantastic, interesting and insightful book reviews. She is also responsible for my new obsession with Anne Elliot and Jane Austen.
Carrieoke- I’m really feeling her 365 photos on Flickr and her blog posts always make me laugh, schmoo!
Every Word’s a Purl- It’s just something about Carrie’s writing that I really love. I’m always anxious to read her often times comical take on her FO’s outcomes.
Knit and Tonic- Wendy is the shit, period. I never fail to laugh out loud when reading her blog. That yoga mat, white leggings, and panties story had me in tears. Let’s not forget about the great patterns has designed.
Lolly Knitting Around- Lolly may be one of the smartest people around. She has taken her personal knitblog and made into a daily learning experience for me. I am inspired by her thirst for knowledge and her willingness to engage in new things.
The Purl Bee- They have some of the best photography around. I find I can look at their site all day, re-reading tutorials and articles. They are also responsible for my trip to Martha Stewart’s sewing show and the upcoming one to her knitting show!!
Wee Wonderfuls- I’ve mentioned her inventive doll making and crafting talent before. She continues to make me strive to be better in all things doll related. Her design aesthetic is appealing and her skills are often intimidating, but in a good way =)
Anna’s Yarn Mansion bka Knitty Cent- Anna has a playful and unique style. I look forward to both her movie reviews and Holly McKnotty’s tales. Her paper/notebook/cute addiction makes me feel much better about my drooling in art stores. I live vicariously through her.
Ysolda- I am in awe of Ysolda’s knitwear design talent. She has such classic style. Her reputation for clarity in her pattern writing precedes her, yet she often re-knits and re-works her patterns to make sure they are the best she can make them. I aspire to incorporate such a work ethic in my life.
Peacock Chic-I love Nubian Crafters attention to detail from her knitting to her sewing. I would never have guessed that she had been sewing such a short time. Her impressive FO photos and her sense of humor have made her blog one of my recent faves.
Coiled- Kat’s bohemian style is so earthy and genuine. She takes the simple, crochet brooches for example, and makes them her own. I am itching to get out my sketch pads and pencils every time she posts a new drawing on Flickr. Her knitwear designs are always fresh and feminine with the ability to be hippy styled or sophisticated.
It was hard to choose these few.
Thanks ladies for making my blog day.
