Slacker

Yes, that’s me. I haven’t read a blog or updated my blog for over a week now. My free minutes have been few and far between, and probably will be for a few more weeks. But I’m still here and will try to pop in as I can. We’ll see how much catching up I can do today.

The good news is that my own personal genius, the Skeptic, has fixed my camera. So I do have photos to share. Today’s photo? My Fleece Artist scarf, the last photo I took before I dropped my camera and smashed up the lens.

Fleece Artist scarf

This is from one of their scarf kits, it’s a thick and thin wool and a silk boucle. It’s super warm and perfect for this winter we’re having. The only problem? It sheds like crazy and I’m walking around the city looking like I have a long haired white cat who I let sleep on my coat. I tried to explain to the Skeptic that I needed a new coat that would hide my constantly shedding scarf and he gave me “the look.” That is the “we barely have extra money to order out pizza right now and you want a new coat to go with your scarf?” Um, yeah. Okay, so no new coat right now.

So there you have it, some actual knitting content.

My other main order of business is to catch up with the wonderful award that both Catherine and Lia gave me:

This truly did make my day, and now I get to pass it on to ten others who really do make my day, those who I miss when I have a week like this past one has been. But first I need to say “right back at’cha!” to both Catherine and Lia. Catherine is a wonderful friend who I don’t get to see enough lately (I miss my Tuesday night knitting!). Lia was my first coffee swap partner and a sweet person who dyes beautiful, gorgeous yarn. Her package was the first time anyone ever dyed any yarn just for me, and I felt very spoiled. Thank you both so much for thinking of me!!!

So in addition to the two awesome ladies above, here are ten more very fine bloggers!

Nuttnbunny:  Oh, can she spin! And I think she must spin in her sleep, she seems to get so much done.

Jess: A friend that I first met when Little Man and her oldest were both babies. We hadn’t seen each other for while, but then started reading each other’s blogs, both of us wondering, “hmmmm, is that her? ” And it was. I’m glad we’re both running in the same circles again, and her blog is a nice way to keep in touch as we still don’t see each other all that much.

Chris: How else would I keep up with all my knit-blogging news? And you can’t beat cats and knitting!

Paige: A new blogger,  she always has great thrifting finds and some beautiful projects.

Jennifer:  An all around talented crafter and the Fiberflix queen! (Although now that our tv is busted I’m even worse at keeping up with all those great movies.)

Jody: She knits, sews, spins, and takes lovely pictures!

Marsha:  My fellow vegetarian-knitter-mom and another former swap partner. Not just knitting, she’s got a great mix of interesting stuff on her blog.

Sheepish Annie:  Funny, funny, funny. And just to be sure you know, she’s very funny.

Dottycookie: A lovely mixture of creative goods!!

Guinifer:  You want to keep up on your sock yarn? Then her blog is not to be missed!

Wow, so hard to pick only ten out of the 196 blogs I have in my bloglines. Yeah, I know that’s crazy. But everyone is so talented, I hate to miss it!

  1. Glad to know I’m not the only one subscribed to a huge number of blogs. Thanks for the new links 🙂

  2. The Guinifer gal has been under the weather for like three weeks so the sock yarn showing off has been slow!!! Thanks for the hug though!

  3. Aw, shucks! Thanks! 🙂

    Glad to see you back. That scarf is beautiful–I love the colors!

  4. Cute scarf! Hee hee – the coat logic makes sense to ME. 😉

    Congrats and thank you! 🙂

  5. The Skeptic is a handy guy. It’s not everyone who can fix electronics. I love the scarf…the answer, of course, is to get a long haired white cat so people expect your coat to be covered in long white hair.

    Oh man – isn’t always something? The scarf looks great. Super cozy.

  7. Wow, I love that scarf. Long and warm and funky. Yum! (And thank you!!)

  8. Aw, thanks! You make my day, too!! As does that scarf. Very, very pretty!

  9. Aww, your camera is fixed! That’s awesome – the Skeptic definitely has a knack there.

    Thanks for the award, you’re so sweet. I’m glad we’re seeing more of each other lately, even if a bunch of it is over the internet. Better than no contact!

  10. Yeah for fixed cameras! Blogging with photos is so much nicer.

  11. That is a gorgeous scarf! I’m glad your camera got fixed too.

    Thank you for naming me! I’m blushing. 🙂

  12. Lovely scarf – and I can understand wanting a new coat to match. I would like a new coat to match the felt brooch I made, but that’s not likely to happen either! I sympathise with the camera pain – but yay for the Skeptic!

    Thank you for the award – I am honoured. And I am off to check out the other awardees!
