Hey! Don’t forget to enter my wee summer catch-up contest.
And check out Brenda’s Blogiversary Contest, too — lots of fabulous prizes from her.
I mentioned that I came home from tour to find a number of exciting packages. The best of the lot was also the most unexpected.
First, I should say that I was touched and cheered by the awesome outpouring of knitblogger support and sympathy after the Great Computer Theft of 2007. As a fairly new blogger, I wasn’t expecting those online kindnesses to make such a tangible difference in how I felt, or how I dealt with the crisis (which, I know, was a relatively minor one in the scheme of things). You guys made me feel supported, comforted, and only slightly chided for my reckless failure to back shit up online.
And I should have known I could trust one of my favorite bloggers — the clever, talented, generous Ms. Fricknits — to make me feel even warmer and more loved than I already did:
Two balls of Habu cotton slub yarn, in a lovely deep pink that will look like blossoms in the snow this winter, when I make the “skinny rockstar scarf” that Julia suggested in her super-thoughtful note.
Seriously, you rock.
