There is only one blog that scares me!

I use Bloglines to organize and follow blogs that I find interesting.

No one's life is simple which means blogs don't always fall into neat categories. But, I think I do a pretty good job. Of course, there are the

'Knitting Blogs"

Some of my favorites include...

Passing Down Crazy

Wendy Knits

Green Woman Comes Knocking

or Mary Scott Huff

I have another Bloglines Folder titled "Photographically Interesting". These are blogs that are inspirational to me in terms of improving my blog photography.

Definitely Pioneer Woman

Brooklyn Tweed

Raised In Cotton

or Reclaiming the Home

Oh, and the "Food" blogs!


or Smitten Kitchen

Going to Bloglines is like opening up a huge mailbox! Lots of delightful letters and packages.

None of the blog samples I have shared with you scare me. They inspire me! I want to "knit that", "photograph like that", "bake that" - Sometime In The Future!

The blog that scares me is the one that makes me want to stop whatever I am doing and knit! Seriously! If I am in the middle of a large, important project, I postpone opening the blog when I see there is a new entry. I definitely, under no circumstances, open a blog post in the morning. I will fight the knitting demons all day long and be so distracted that my work will suffer.

Who is this dangerous blog writer?


Yep, those are gnomes on the mitten!

And, strawberries!!

So, why do SpillyJane's designs cause such an immediate need to knit them? Accessability! SpillyJane frequently uses our Palette yarn.

Palette is a yarn that Kerin and Nina use a lot - we ALWAYS have lots of Palette in the office stash. See the problem?

SpillyJane is also an insanely prolific designer. It seems like every time I open her blog, she has another design!! Seriously! (I've been watching a lot of Grey's Anatomy re-runs so "Seriously" is my favorite word right now)

My favorite?

Cupcakes! Seriously!

I remember the mittens with the cupcakes from before. Thanks for sharing all the blogs. All of them are new to me except Mary Scott Huff's (hilarious) and Spilly Jane. Thanks, thanks, thanks! Now, how about little mittens (four of them) with no thumbs and with apple slices knitted in...for Xena, of course! --P

Awesome! knitting and food blogs ROCK!!! Have you seen the We Heart Yarn blog? She is known as "neuroknitter" on ravelry, and she's got the most gorgeous photos of her socks on her blog and ravelry. It's phenomenal, and inspirational! I can't wait to check out the blogs you posted here! Hugs!

SpillyJane is one of my favorites also. cellogirl has already suggested "machinations" for my next Word of the Week on my blog. But I may have to sneak in "seriously" also. Thanks for all the great blog suggestions. ♥c

Gnomes!! I remember those cupcakes! OK now I have to watch out for you to veer me off my CLiC course too? haha.. When did I become so weak? No I will not click onto that blog. Nope. I will fight temptation. Seriously! Maybe.

Too Funny! Love the blog and list of blogs. Never heard of bloglines before, will now need to investigate and add SpillyJane to a list to watch myself.
