Like To Give A Shout Out!

I follow quite a few blogs and I enjoy reading the informative, often funny, and most times interesting blogs on my follow list.  But I'd like to take the time to just give a little shout out to some of my favorites.

Shout out to my fellow knitter/spinner: Savage Daughter, who just recently started a blog about her spinning exploits.  You can find her at Savagely Spinning With A Wee Bit of Knitting - catchy name huh?  I love it. And you will really enjoy her beautiful spinning product she has done so far.  She is a beginner spinner, but you'd never know it from her work.  I am what you would call a novice/beginner spinner, you've seen my work, but her progress with the technique has far surpassed me.  Head on over and take a little peek at what she's currently working on.

Shout out to Katie, The Knitting Mama, who I recently discovered when I accidentally typed my own blog name wrong (see what you can discover with your mistakes?). You can find her at The Knitting Mama. She has some awesome finished projects that you can peruse (which I'm amazed that she gets so many done with four children at home - Go Knitting Mama!) as well as some great posts about life as a stay at home mom, who stays sane by enjoying her fiber arts.

Shout out to Pam of Knitter Bugs and Dust Bunnies, who graciously follows my blog and gives me great comments. Follow along as she keeps you up-to-date about her cat Nigel and latest finished projects, which if you'll take a peek at her blog you'll see she's making some really great knits for a grandchild that's on the way.

Shout out to one of my most favorite blogs to follow: Fiber Arts, hosted by the online Times Union Newspaper, my hometown newspaper. When I'm feeling a little homesick, I just pull up the blog to see what's happening in the Capital District fiberwise. I'm always entertained and I ususally feel better, especially this winter when they got hit so hard with all the snow. It reminds me why I moved to the Pacific Northwest -you don't have to shovel rain!

Want a little satirical comedy about knitting, life, politics, and everything in between, check out Joe at Queer Joe's Knitting Blog. Whenever I need a pick-me-up, I am guaranteed to find it on his blog.  I love his dark humor and his great attitude about life.  And he's a damn fine knitter to boot!

Learn all you want to know about the Crafty Adventures in the World of Fiber with Nikki at Stitch.Tac.Sew. She gives honest reviews on knitting books and products, yarn, fiber, and producers of yarn and fiber.  Go check her out.

Like a little whimsy with your blog posts with some great recipes to go along with it? Then you'll love reading the adventures of Tink at Tinksmeadow. Go on over and try out some of her yummy looking recipes, you will not be sorry!

Come back again, I'll give you the low-down on some of the other fun and interesting blogs I like to follow. Or you can just go to who I'm following and check them out yourself.  Happy blog reading!
