Who knew? I am a rockin knitter in someones eyes
Karen, http://www.k-knit.blogspot.com/ nominated me for a Rockin Girl Knitter. Her description of me is so accurate. The only reason I rock, I believe, is in the verb tense. I have rocked many a babe in my profession. Now I get to nominate other bloggers. I hope you'll check out their blogs, each is unique and a favorite of mine.
Bianca of Lansingland.blogspot.com is a wonderful knitter. Don't be frightened by the bi-lingual posts. Read on English speaking friends.....She is also good about leaving comments.
Pat K. Pumpkin Knitter, has wonderful knit/trip postings. She and I have corresponded from the get to. Pumpkinknitter.blogspot.com
Then there's Bev. I just love her blog. She is always having some cutie pie relative over that steals your heart away on her posts. She is an accomplished knitter, and also a great one for leaving comments on Irisheyes. Bev is found at Fiberitis.blogspot.com.
My other two nominees will be forthcoming.
So, the images today are:
Al's new sweater cast on in the Northwoods. Cast on twice. She had some difficulties as the chart was sooooooo teeny tiny, but she prevailed. She's out for a power walk, so there will be more information on what the pattern and yarns are in the future.
The last image is for those of us in Lynne's Picnic Swap. Here is Mr. Lincoln Himself and Mary Todd at a picnic table having, Lipton ice tea with their dinners. Ice tea......hmmmmm, I wonder if my swap partner Kimberly prefers ice tea or lemonade at her picnics........
Civil War Days takes place in our town at the Grove Historic Center each summer. Last night Al and I went to the after hours Lantern lit tours. I wish I knew more about the Civil War.
I think I embarassed Al when a reenactor asked our little group if we knew what copperheads were.
I raised my hand and proudly pronounced, "SNAKES" only to find out I was wrong. Al bit her lip politely because she knew the right answer. Copperheads were northerners who were Confederate sympathizers. They made our reenactors train plunge into a river on it's way to Washington D.C.
I have another photo of a Civil War Bath house......do you want to see it? It's a hoot!
