Baby It's Cold Outside...

Today was the monthly Knit Afternoon In at my lys HYAW. And as always I had a great time. We talked, and knit, acted a little silly (that's what I usually do), and knit some more. And as always I had a really good time.

I almost didn't go because it is so freakin' cold I didn't want to leave the house. But as always I'm so glad my common sense won out over my laziness.

The wonderful L, of Wool & Chocolate has honored me by naming me as one of the blogs that inspires her. I was shocked that she felt that way. I didn't think I was in any way inspirational. But it's definitely nice to know that I am. I think I'm am supposed to list the 10 blogs which inspire me. Boy is that going to be really hard. There are way to many absolutely fabulous and inspirational blogs that I read regularly. But here goes:

  1. Frottez - I'm lucky that I get to knit with her in person as well as read her great blog.
  2. Knizzle fo Shizzle - Has taught me that I should live my life to the fullest. And knit any and every chance I get.
  3. Some Knitting Required - What is there to say that anyone who has ever read her blog doesn't already know. She is a phenomenal knitter, designer, teacher and friend!
  4. Real Life: Live & Unscripted - Fabulous knitter, fashion designer, photographer and cyber friend. She also has a great podcast about Inspiration as well.
  5. OCD Knitting - Challenges me to step up and be better than I think I am.
  6. Diane's Yarn Addiction - The sweetest knitter and friend you'd ever want to meet.
  7. Lil Knit of This & That - A great knit dishcloth designer, who actually gives most of her patterns away. And always comments on my blog posts.
  8. Live & Learn - Need I say any more? I don't think so!
  9. Wendy Knits - Just looking at Lucy and reading about her exploits makes my day.
  10. Wool & Chocolate - Even though she's only been blogging a short time. Each post has inspired me to consider something outside my box.

There are many more I could name, but this is where I'll stop.

Have a great day! If you're here in the Michigan, or anywhere else it's cold and snowy right now, bundle up, keep warm, and knit knit knit.

Girlfriend, I am totally shocked and so honored that I made your list. I love reading your blog and I think you're just the sweetest person. You totally just made my whole week.
Now I'm going to check out these other blogs you named...I bet I find some more good ones to add to my reader list.

I wish I could have knit with everyone yesterday. It was so cold outside and the perfect day for knitting.

Diane said...

OMG Sonya, I'm so honored! Thank you! And I gotta say I'm so glad I know you, you are such a gem! I enjoy knitting with you on Tuesdays.

Thank you Sonya!!!!!

Adriannes blg is amazing isn't it? SHE is amazing, is there anything that girl doesn't do?

I love to read Diane's blog because she writes EXACTLY like she talks and I can just picture her in my head every time I read it and it makes me smile.

Leanne's blog is like you said, outside the box. Besides such an intelligent and compassionate youngling, gives me hope that the people who will be taking care of me in the nursing home will be half way decent ;-)

Of course I love your blog because its so.....YOU!! and the t-shirts!

You made my day. :)

Dana said...

Thank you so much for mentioning my blog. I wish I posted more, but it's good to know someone is still reading it anyway.

I wish I had been with you guys yesterday instead of where I was. Funerals are never fun.

See you soon!

I'm honored! And I'm so glad to consider you part of my group of friends as well. I missed all of you this Sunday, but Knit Mich is just around the corner.
