When I started this little blog a year or so ago, it was really to document my knitting. I never figured anybody would read it. I didn't expect other knitters to find and read it. I never dreamt non-knitters would ever find it, and I surely never thought so many of you would continue to visit on a regular basis!
I never thought I would enjoy it so much either.Of all the things I do, all of my jobs, all of my hobbies, this blog...this little insignificant diary of my ordinary life is my most favorite thing.
Because of all of you, of course.
Your own blogs.
Your lives, your families, your humor, your knitting.
I can't do without it, it seems.
So I celebrate you. All of you. And I thank you.
Thank you so very much!
Out of respect to those of you who visit, and do not knit, I have another prize.
I will do a second drawing for an Amazon gift card for $100.00, and a gift from the Frenchboro Bakery.
Please specify your prize preference in the comment section!
