I ♥ knitters

I shouldn't generalize about knitters. I know the minute I do, CNN will feature Wolf Blitzer interviewing a bank robbing, kitten kicking, knitter--horrifying details at 10! But really, as a whole, knitters rock.

I admired a knitter's orange socks she showed on her blog. Turns out, they're too big for her and she's offered to send them to me, just because I like them. Seriously! Is that awesome or what? I wasn't the winner of the drawing on another blog, and I got a little smartassy--accused the winner of bribing the dog that drew her name--and now the blogger is hinting at a consolation prize. Awesome again, right? Yes, I have my share of stresses, but knitting is how I get back to center, and it wouldn't be the same without my knitter friends.

Time to pay it back. I'm feeling another give-away and as soon as I work out all the details, I'll announce it. Just wanted to give my blog followers a heads-up. I'm thinking if you follow my blog, you'll get an extra chance to win. You ought to get something out of being a part of the craziness I call a blog. I ♥ you guys mucho much!


  1. Cool on the orange socks! I can't wait to see them. I really have a sock problem. :) Knitters are a great bunch.

  2. I love you too!

    Last night knitters took care of all the stash that I had come to hate. (not ALL of the stash- just all of the stash I've come to hate.) There was such a weight lifted from my psyche to no longer have to keep the good yarn that the bad principal gave to me!

  3. Knitters are really awesome people. And I don't just say that since I am one :)

  4. Awww... we love you too. (and love reading your blog.)
    Knitters have something in common and can talk, share, etc. with each other even when they first meet! You see a knitter and immediately you have something to talk about.

  5. Lucky you!
    Can't wait to find out the giveaway!

  6. The only thing better than yarn is free yarn, right? (On the other hand, people have helpfully given me some pretty awful yarn of the ancient acrylic variety. Perhaps I am overthinking my comment?)


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
