a major prize, a major prize!!

The beautiful and wonderfully multi-talented Sharon, of Chickenlips Knitting, and the gorgeous Stitchjones yarns has bestowed upon yours truly a most awesome award:

How wicked is that?! Thank you so much, Sharon, and just in case no one has told you today, you are the best!

It's now up to me to pass on the love, as this award comes with responsibilities....

Here are the rules for the nominees:

1. Copy the award to your site. (Save it to your own server).

2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.

3. Nominate 8 other bloggers.

4. Link to those on your blog.

5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominated.

Since anyone who reads this blog is obviously extremely intelligent and awesome, I nominate you all, with special attention to:

Lexa from Just in the Knit of Time
Cute kids, adorable dogs, and awesome knitted objects, who could ask for anything more?

Vik from Like Grandma
Vik blogs from Argentina about her beautiful crochet and knit items and her cuter-than cute Scottie dog.

Cass from Shut Up, I'm Counting
Home-schooling accident-prone pet-sitting, knit-loving vegan hilarious mom...that's Cass.

And lastly, Sharon, I'm sending this back to you, because, my dear, you are the most "Kreativ Blogger" I know! Love ya!

I have no pictures of knitterly or crochety things today, mostly because I'm in various stages on all my projects right now. I'm working on the February Lady sweater (who isn't?) and I've had to restart it a few times, because I haven't liked a few things on it (like the eyelet increase row) and I decided I should make a smaller size than the one I was this point I really don't know if it will get finished...we'll see. I'm also making a pair of socks for Cee's brother, boring dark grey ribbed...those seem to take forever....I don't know why men don't seem to like wearing funky coloured socks...

In a related vein...does anyone know why all my pictures are looking so funky lately? They seem to get cut off on the right side....I'm sure it's something I'm doing, I just don't know what....I'm not that tech savvy, so you'll have to dumb it down for me.

Time for me to head off into the sunshine (it is actually sunny today) and survey the damage the winter has done to our yard.

Dear Kiki, Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog! I missed you and was wondering if you were OK. I'm glad you are back at the computer and hope you're feeling much better! Love, Sharon
