Knitting Blog Awards

Monday, August 21st, 2006

Lynn at ComputerLucia, The Knitting Fiend, has put up the voting pages for her Knitting Blog Awards. I’ve been nominated in the “Major Categories” under Sock Blog and in “Minor Categories” under Most Diverse Fiber Artist.

The delightful woman we Michigan folks visited in Ann Arbor recently (see August 2 entry if link fails in the new archive system), Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, has only one category for her wonderful Yarn Harlot blog: Best Over All Knitting Blog. Another winner, for me, is Marie Irshad’s Knitcast under Best Podcast in the Major Categories.

You can vote once at each page (Over All, Major and Minor) each day, until August 31. You can vote for one blog in each category on each page. You can speak your mind! (OK, I’ll calm down now.) Whatever floats your boat, as Mom would say.
I would, of course, appreciate support in the form of votes from you folks out there. Thanks.

Caught up on Emails

Monday, August 21st, 2006

Thanks to Shirley, Gina, Teresa, Tracy, Fae, Merry, Kit and Rachel for your interest in my patterns. If anyone else wrote me about patterns in the last week, I would love to hear from you. I think everyone has heard from me, and those who have sent payment will have an envelope with their name/address on it winging through the mail Monday. I’ll be available to check email more than not on Monday if anyone else writes or pays.

I’m soooo tired. I love being self-employed but sometimes it means working past 1am. Remember that, friends, when you are tempted to believe that “your own boss” thing, which benefits so many “snake oil salesmen” and not their customers. When you are self employed, every customer is essentially your boss. I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but I’m definitely falling asleep at the keyboard right now.
