A truly beautiful award

Thank you Jayne for nominating me for this award. Knowing how hard it is to decide who out of the many should get this is always a challenge and I am pleased that my woolly ramblings give a bit of pleasure to someone. somewhere. I know that the blogs I visit never fail to give me something, whether it be a laugh, a piece of wisdom, something to try. I've found it all on the blogs.

Here are the rules as taken from Jayne's wonderful blog - go visit you'll love it.

Please take accept this award from me and ...
1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Link the person from whom you received your award .
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put the links of those blogs on to your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them!

This is as I said the tough bit. Too many people deserve the award but if I have to choose then these are the ones
Queen of the froggers
- she has some stunning pics of wool and buttons and things.
Wool windings go see the beautiful socks she gets off her needles.
Chan check out the tales of Mugsy and Sissy, and a bit of knitting too.
Grace she always has such interesting posts
Jayne she makes me homesick but I love her posts.
Willow her photos are breathtaking
Leanne because you've got to love the things she makes.
There are many many others I could award this to. If I visit your blog regularly then I love it too.
I finally got one of my pairs of new glasses this week. It feels so good to be able to see everything clearly at last.
The new

and just for comparison the old

Peri of course was not far away.

Hopefully will have photos of Hey Teach to show very soon. Before the final ceremony of the Olympics. I have finished the back and the fronts and only have the sleeves to go. I am very happy with how it's knitting up so far.
Enjoy the rest of the Olympics everyone.
