Again with the catching up

Back in July Lesley at Twig's (mis)Adventures in Knitting nominated me for a Rockin' Girl Blogger Award but because my schedule this summer has been something I don't care to repeat next summer, I never even mentioned it. Having been nominated by someone like Twig, our charming hostess of the Hockey Knitters Knit-A-Long, phenomenal blogging skills, knitting skills that I can only aspire too, and author of some of the funniest comments known to MFB, I must say I felt honored. Just the other day Jenna aka A South Park Republican nominated me as well. I just recently discovered Jenna in the last couple of months, she has a very funny unique "voice" if you will and she even traveled through a town I used to live in this summer - and treated me to some wonderful pictures that made me homesick.

I want to pass the nomination onto all of you out here but the thing is I'm supposed to pass it on to five specific Girls.
#1. Angie at Dipsy Doodle
#2. Francesca at Fluffbuff
#3. Ava at When a Door Closes
#4. Brigitte at Wrapped Around My Finger
#5. Knitty Otter

And ten others of you out here.

On the stash front, my friend Lori gifted me with this Mountain Colors Bearfoot during the summer. She picked it up when she was in Baltimore for a weekend. It's the Alpine colorway and I sooooo love it. Thanks again Lori!
