When I started blogging last spring, I hoped to contribute to the many creative and inspiring voices that I discovered over the course of the last couple of years. I wanted to add my thoughts on knitting and fiber and share my mistakes and successes.
Somehow, blogging has made me a better knitter. Maybe it's because I put high expectations on myself to share WIPS and FOs that show the better side of myself. And maybe it's because your comments have encouraged me to keep pushing my skills and learn from my mistakes. In this short time, I've made the nicest friends all over the world and even though these friendships are only through our blogs (for now!), they are as genuine and meaningful to me as my friends who I see face-to-face.
One such friend gave me one of the nicest gifts I could have ever asked for (thank you!). She awarded me with the Versatile Blogger award! While we bloggers get a lot out of knowing that our thoughts and ideas are being read, it is especially sweet to have someone whose blog I love show me such affection by passing this award along to me. So, I'm thankful to have a place to share my love of knitting and yarn and thankful to all the new friends I've made in the blogosphere. Part of receiving this award is to share seven things about myself so here it goes:
1. Like my WIPs, I always have a book in progress.
2. I'd rather be knitting and reading ... outdoors.
3. I love when summer turns into autumn.
4. A perfect day would be spent with my husband and children.
5. I'm a city girl (favorite cities include London, New York, and Montreal).
6. I would never turn down a good cup of coffee.
7. If I could develop another creative skill, it would be to dance!
To share this great feeling, I'd like to pass the Versatile Blogger award to a few of my favorite blogs (and now friends). Enjoy!
My Sister's Knitter for the joy she finds in everything around her
