Blog Award again!

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?


  1. aww, shucks, thanks Lynne! It's always so nice to be given these awards! This is a new one to me too so very cool. Now who to pass on to?

  2. Oh, Lynne, thanks so much! I'm really touched to receive this award, and I'm so glad that I found your blog! Thanks for thinking of me (and for giving me some more blogs to look at!). :)

  3. Well done Lynne - well deserved - and thanks for your lovely comments on mine - all help much appreciated!

  4. Aww..thanks! The AGK sends all sorts of purrs your way, too. He knows he is adorable, but he loves hearing it, anyway!

  5. Yes, blog friend, thank you so much! It is good to stop and be grateful for all our friends!

  6. Have a Merry Christmas-hope you are feeling better! Will look forward to pics of your daughter's wedding regalia! Take Care-


Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
