My first Award!!!

Yesterday I was so surprised to be given the following award from my blogging friend, Becky of Needles of Iron. Thank you so very much.

And the really fun thing is that we are meeting in person tomorrow after she drives to Denver for lunch with a friend. We picked the LYS The Lamb Shoppe in Denver to meet, have a cup of coffee and participate in some KIP. We both knit, spin, have daughters and support Obama! We are about the same age so we went through the same eras together and through reading her blog I have discovered that we have so much in common. She is much farther advanced in her spinning and fiber prep talent than me, but I think I can teach her a thing or two about using a drop spindle. Maybe she can show me her wheel someday.

Since I would like to Craft It Forward, I hereby nominate the following bloggers I read on a regular basis for this same award:

Rosemary of Rosemaryknits also lives in Colorado, but in Pueblo- two hours south of me. She has posted the famous video of Tammy Rizzo's Navajo Ply on the fly that I find so incredibly helpful in drop spindling. And you also have to check out her Bicycle Spinning wheel, which she made for herself, spending less that $10 all together. That is talent.

Lupie of KnittingLupie lives on the east coast and I waved across to NJ when I was in NY a few weeks ago. She shares my love of color and loves knitting with friends.

Timiae of Spinknitup is a young fresh voice from Georgia who is adventurous in her knitting and spinning and reminds me of me at that age, but more together.

Phyllis of Spinknitandlife is a spinner, knitter, needle felter......multitalented to say the least. She has an etsy shop of her batts and fibers, and I love her photography.

I would also like to nominate a 5th blogger-- Sonia of Peaceful Knitter who I met last week at Rhinebeck.
