Janna gave me a "You make my day" award which not surprisingly has made my day. It is now my job to name 10 bloggers who make my day as the official rules state that one is to: Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on.
Janna had the brilliant idea of naming all of the San Antonio knit-bloggers. I would definitely start with these ladies (and man) because they make my day every Sunday when I knit with them at Candlelight Cafe. I've managed to make it to knitting group three weeks in a row now and I've finally stopped feeling shy and started having a really good time. I've had such fun that I know that from now on I'll make Sunday Knitting a priority on weeks when I don't have a Sunday concert. Since my post needn't be identical to Janna's, I'll name a few other bloggers whose work I enjoy, none of whom I've met in real life. I enjoy close to 200 blogs, so this is in no way a comprehensive list, just a few of my favorites.
The A.D.D. Knitter
Halfway Down the Stairs
good to be girl :: a knitting blog
Immer wieder Socken (this one is in German which I do not speak, but the pictures of socks and yarn make it worthwhile)
Have You Any Wool?
If books and movies tend to make your day, I have a couple of suggestions in that department as well. My birthday was Monday and I spent the part of the day that I didn't have to spend teaching on the couch knitting. While I knit, I thoroughly enjoyed a little movie called Once. It's mostly about music and it has an excellent soundtrack which I purchased from iTunes immediately after watching the movie.
A couple of weeks ago, I finished one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's by Ami McKay and it's called The Birth House. If you like historical fiction with a sassy female protagonist, this is the book for you. I am a painfully slow reader yet I managed to finish this book in just over a week because it's such a good story.
