my 15 minutes of fame!

Over the past few days I've recieved 2 messages in my Ravelry inbox. They were from someone I didn't know - someone named 'bioengiknitter'! The messages were a request to use my photo on the Ravelry page for that particular pattern. The first was the Lace Bolero from Sirdar, and the second was the little baby jacket and hat I just knit. So if you click on these patterns you will see my photos featured in the left hand column :-) I have to admit I was rather thrilled to get the request - that someone liked my FO that much that they would feature it in the photos column... well, it really made me smile.

On another bright note, Hetty awarded me with a 'Fabulous Blog award last week - thank you Hetty!

Hetty wants to know 5 things I am addicted to and then I should pass the award on to 5 other blogs! Right now I'm seriously only addicted to one thing, and that's knitting, but I'll try to make a list of 5:

1. Knitting! There's not a day goes by that I don't pick up the needles.

2. Knitting Magazines - seriously! I can't stop buying them, even when I know I will probably never knit anything from a certain issue, I'll buy it anyway!

3. American Idol - I can't deny it, I love everything about this show and never miss it. AND... I really like Simon Cowell!

4. My computer! and all the things on it like Facebook, Plurk, IM... I'd feel totally lost without it.

5. and last but certainly not least .... RAVELRY! of course. To be honest, I don't think I'd be as addicted to knitting if it wasn't for Rav ;-)

I can't pick just 5 blogs to pass this on to! I think ALL of the blogs I read are just fabulous :-)

and look who's coming along nicely.....

...she may well be off the needles in the next couple of days!

The tank does look beautiful. What a lovely color your using too. I have had a few requests to use my patterns on ravelry too and it is a nice feeling to know that someone else loves your knitting too.

Denise, it feels like an absolute age since I was on. Today I'm just basically catching up on reading other blogs. Had the baby so life will never be the same again. :) Congratulations on your 15mins, I adore Ravelry as well but as I only discovered it recently have had to put it on the back burner for a wee bit, even my knitting gets to second place as our new addition takes precedence.
I adore your tank top it's turning out wonderful and you are flying with those gloves. Made me smile though that with one set of needles your knitting winter warmers and the other set a cool knit. Brilliant! :)
