Books, Nominations, and of Course Knitting

This week has been fairly uneventful, until now.....

Today I made my very first batch of canned jam. My MIL sent me Marionberries(a type of blackberry) and so I decided to put them and my left over jars to good use. Cross your fingers that it turns out! I am also making Applesauce in the crock pot. You can beat homemade applesauce! While preparing my homemade goodies I was also doing laundry and now my sockza socks have been washed and are drying on my lovely blockers. While on my daily trip through my favorite knitting blogs I came about Michelle's blog and guess what I discovered? She nominated me for a Rockin Girl Blogger! Isn't that so cool!! Thank you so much Michelle. It is an honor that you thought of me!

What is also cool is that I get to meet Michelle next week and have some fun shopping around for yarns and such here in Boston.

Here are Six (even though it is only supposed to be five) bloggers that I think are Rockin as well! (I would love to nominate Anne (wonderful friend, skilled knitter, and an amazing writter), Chan (an awesome friend you could not find, and a skilled sock knitter to boot) and Michelle (a thoughtful, generous, and awesome knitter and friend), but they have already been nominated so I will pass my nominations onto some other wonderful blogs that I read.

Karma Kitties - I admire your photos, your juggling skills and your heart. Your family is lovely and your blog is awesome. Wishing you nothing but the best as you continue your knitting journery, motherhood, and life!

Michele - We originally met via through email and now we have tranistioned to blogging and knitting and fun time together. I admire your knitting skills, your speed, and your honested. Wishing you all the best on this journey we can life! P.S. I love your Tats!

Friender - We have talked for sometime, and helped each other out on several occasions for which I am truly thankful for. You are a skilled knitter and a great friend. I wish you nothing but the best!

Melissa - We met through a swap and now have become fast friends. Isn't it amazing how the world works? You are a beautiful knitter and I enjoy keeping up to date on your blog skills and lovely photos. Best of luck on your sewing! I wish you nothing but the best in all you do.

Alabama Fiber Dreams -Your stitch markers are gorgeous as is your knitting. I met you through a little contest you had on your blog and I have been keeping up ever since. I wish you all the best in everything you do!

Sharon – Your passion for purple is wonderful as are your lovely projects and crafty skills. Wishing you all the best!

Yesterday we went to the Free Shakespeare in the Park that is hosted every year in Boston Common. The performance was of 'A Mid Summer Nights Dream'. It was an amazing production with lots of laughs and I even got some knitting (Isabella is coming along - although not nearly fast enough) done before the sun set.

Donna is having a little contest over at her blog and all you have to do is leave a comment. It ends tonight - so try to catch it in time!

Don't forget that sign ups start for Knit 1 Tea 2 on August 3rd. I expect they will fill up fast so make sure to get your email in on time!

Thank you so much! It's really great getting to know you better and I truly value your friendship. Visiting your blog and the community of blogs that surround it, inspire and motivate me every day.

Thank you for the Nomination!!

I have made homemade applesauce before!! It is sooo much better than store bought, definitely. Wish my girls actually ate it ;-)

Wow! Thanks for the nomination!

I was just talking to a friend on the phone and we were laughing about how boring we are (I was knitting socks and she was picking veggies in her garden). ROTFL

Again, thanks for thinking of me and I've enjoyed getting to know you, too!

You are such a sweetheart. Thanks for the lovely thoughts. We've pushed the Boston trip back to Sept...the last weekend in Sept, actually, so hopefully we'll be able to get lunch together or something!

Channon said...

You are definitely a sweetie! You and Michelle hug each other for me, okay?! I'm still hoping to get up to Boston this fall, even if it is just for a long weekend!

Congratulations on the award. Well deserved! How I envy your trip to Shakespeare in the Park. I used to visit the American Players Theater in Spring Green, WI, every summer for my
Shakespeare fix. Loved it. Got hooked on it in college when I could go to the Guthrie in Minneapolis any time I wanted. Cheers, Sue.
