Happy Thanksgiving Week, everyone! As our thoughts turn toward carving turkeys covered in delicious gravy (and mixing everything else on our plates with mashed potatoes because - I mean - why not?), it's time to reflect on what we're thankful for once again.
One of the things I'm grateful for this year is the wonderful online yarn communities I've become involved with. I was lucky enough to find an outlet through blogging five years ago, and it's taken me on a usually fun, sometimes brutal, but always interesting ride. I've been able to interact with people in the industry that I admire, and I can only hope that trend will continue.
In the meantime, the community my blog is involved with has somehow managed to get me nominated as a Top 25 Knitting Blog for 2013. I'm flattered and excited:
I wanted to let you know a) for selfish reasons - I'll admit that I'd love if more people could vote for me using the app above, but also because b) there are some great fellow artists on this list, some of whom I haven't heard of before. Make sure to visit their websites and this year - be thankful that there are such welcoming knit and crochet communities online that help us grow as artists or hobby-ists.
I'd like to post again before the holiday, but in case I don't, I'll take this time to wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving with your friends and families. Enjoy the ride :)
