All knitting, all spinning, all the time

Thanks Textile Tragic for awarding me this - you made my day!

Now then, let's see ...

Award rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass the award along to bloggers who you think are fantastic for whatever reason (in no particular order).

4. Contact the bloggers you picked & let them know about the award.

Hmmm ...

1. This one's easy - thanks Textile Tragic! I'm glad my sock-knitting inspires you, as you inspire me with your creativity.

2. Share 7 things about yourself - this one's not so easy ...

1. I love the colours blue & purple & everything inbetween.

2. I am anti-housework & would love to set up a foundation for the preservation of wayward dust-bunnies.

3. I am addicted to knitting socks. Cuff-down, toe-up, it doesn't matter. And I don't let the fact that the climate I live in isn't exactly condusive to sock-wearing stop me!

4. I have enough hand-knitted socks to wear a different pair every day for approximately 3 weeks. (At least)

5. I love chocolate, but not chocolate cake.

6. I collect sheep.

7. (Struggling now!) If all else fails, I drink tea!

3. I would like to pass this award on to:

Daylesnail - for being a wonderfully creative creatrix & a wonderful friend.

Spinayarn99 - for incouraging me to try new things with my spinning (like fibre-sandwiches!).

Yarnivorous - for showing me how to use the magic loop to knit socks, thus helping me rid myself of dreaded ladders forming where dpns meet.

Textile Teresa - for helping me to step outside my comfort zone & try new things (like yarn-bombing the Harrietville bridge!). I know you've just received this award from Textile Tragic, but there's nothing like multiple awards!

4. Now to contact the lucky winners!


  1. Aww thanks hon! I'm back from hols this Tuesday. VERY relaxed! So you don't like choc cake? Not even the muddy kind?

  2. Gosh, thanks for the award - I have rarely been given one! :-)
    Now for my post. I'll probably be taking a couple of days at this point to get it done.
