You Make My Day!

I borrowed the rules from Amanda's site. I think this is a great way to share the love!

The rules are as follows: “Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times."


My list of ten in no particular order:

Sigrid at Garngamen seriously you should see this girl knit. She knits the most beautiful things but she puts a lot of people I know to shame with her sheer volume of knitted items in a year! Quanity and Quality.

Joy at The Road Blog Ahead Joy is helping all sorts of people including nuns leaving Tibet. Not to mention two little very sick dogs. Her blog is very inspiring!

Jane Brocket over at The Yarn Storm . This is one lady who has it together! She always has the most beautiful pictures! And her domestic skills are unbelievable! Can't wait for her book to be published in the U.S.

Katie at What Katie Did . She always makes me smile. Her banner alone can warm you on a cold dreary day.

Margaret at Lots of Yarn Margaret isn't too far from me and we have a lot in common as far as places we frequent and knitting and spinning. Margaret's blog is very inspiring and education to me and I always look forward to her latest creations!

Julia over at Weird Bunny has amazing talents and her blog always brings a smile to my face and I'm usually facinated by her latest accomplishments!

Annie Modisett at Mode Knit . Seriously, who hasn't heard Annie speak or read her blog that hasn't come away inspired either from her knitting or life! She is such an amazing person. If you haven't read her blog, you must!

Cactus Needles Cacus Needles . I love her blog because well there knitting and dogs and how can you go wrong with that! Her Ella is a sweet looking girl!

Bron at Bron's Blog I love her stories she has the best way of telling the simplest stories and making them funny. At least they are to me in some cases. She knits and crochets, which I admire because I can't crochet a stitch! It's maddening really. I can't work with just one needle, but Bron's got mad skills she can work with one or two needles!

Paula Basset Knitter I enjoy Paula's blogs, they are happy and hey she has a basset hound, knits and likes books. It is like one stop shopping in a blog for me!

And finally an extra Amanda . Amanda has amazing vacations with awesome pictures, the cutest little boy you'll ever see and she is incredible. Works, raises Poppy, knits and has her Etsy shop! She produces some amazing yarns! Check her out!

Happy Knitting Everyone!
