Earlier this month, Anne sent me this pretty blog award. Her blog translates and defines it thus:
“This blog invests and believes in ‘proximity’
[meaning that blogging makes us 'close' - being close through proxy].”
Since I had only recently awarded some of the blogs I love, I was intending not to do this again. But that would have been churlish of me. Therefore, I gratefully acknowledge the receipt of this award and thank Anne most sincerely. I was honestly stunned at getting a second award, especially since it followed so closely on the heels of the previous one.
In keeping with the spirit of the award, I am to nominate eight bloggers who in turn 'pay it forward' to eight more.
Random Knits - she started the Aussie and New Zealand Knitters' blogring which has led me to blogs here and overseas. I have met Donna in person and her knitting is as good as it looks on her blog.
I Heart Knitting - a Tasmanian teacher and knitter
Rose Red - a 'local' blogger who loves red and shoes as well as knitting
Knitting Linguist - an US knitter and professor of linguistics; what's not to love?
Delighted Hands - a US knitter, quilter and sister in Christ
My recycled bags - while going through chemotherapy, Cindy challenges us all to recycle by turning plastic bags into crochet yarn she calls 'plarn'
Sheepish Annie - a US middle-school teacher, spinner and knitter whose dry wit keeps me coming back for her six-days-a-week blog posts; not to mention the adorable AGK!
and, one of the "big guns":
The Panopticon- the adventures of Franklin, Dolores and Harry keep me amused; but will he even notice that someone gave him an award amongst all those comments?
