Aw, shucks!

I am thrilled to say that Kristy recently listed me as one of her picks for Rockin' Girl Blogger, and she said some very sweet things while she was at it. Very sweet.

At first I thought I'd just quietly acknowledge it and not write a post about it or anything. Why? I don't know. Because I'm a weirdo, I guess. But then I realized that was just rude. So here it is.

According to some (OK, one) I am a Jimmy Choo shoe convention. Eat it.

(Was that too much? Not humble, huh? I went all the way from private to rude. Just like that. This is why I should steer clear of acknowledging things. It turns ugly real fast.)

But seriously, I feel so lucky to have found a small group of brilliant women here in the crafty-bloggy community who care about being connected and supportive of one another, who love and make beautiful things, and who rock in every way imaginable. What a lovely thing, this.

Every last one of you rocks, and it would be impossible to pick just 5... particularly since most of you have already been pegged. Consider yourself rockers, one and all!

There certainly are worse things to be than a Jimmy Choo convention. ;)

On a related note, my mother told my sisters and me this weekend that she is considering getting a - hope you are sitting - a Beadazzler. We just looked at her and hoped she was kidding.

Thank you for the sweet words about the socks. I am hopeful that the new yarn and the knitting for someone else (my niece) mojo will flow into the socks. Also, I thought of you when I found that quote, re: practice shots.

Congrats on the award, Dr B! Where else can you find people willing to knit million-dollar socks?

Kristy, your mom needs to step away from the Bedazzler. Pronto.

Nora said...

Congratulations Dr. We all knew it was only a matter of time... :)

I agree - you ARE pretty rockin'!

BTW, I got the scarf pattern. I am going to start it as soon as I finish my "I-am-finally-going-to-be-a-grandmother" baby blanket.
