Rockin’ Girl Bloggers

Okay, on July 16th, I was nominated for a Rockin’ Girl Blogger award by Niki of Half-Way Down the Stairs. And I am finally getting around to nominating my picks. It was a little hard since there are so many great bloggers out there. But I have my list.

Meow Girl from KnitBuddies. She is a world class spinner. She is really smart too, And she likes to knit socks. And she has put up with her older brother for way to long. (Sorry M, but it is the truth!!)

A from clothesknit. She is another fantastic spinner. (She spun me sock yarn!!!!) She is a fantastic hostess of swaps. She is a mom to three wonderful children. She can sew things for her children because they want them even though she claims to not be a sewer. Plus she is a fantastic sock knitter.

Eva from Sheep to Shawls to Socks. She just simply is a great friend. She is going through some stuff right now so go and say hi to her.

Joy from dynamiteknits @circle + six. She lives in a tropical wonder land and still manages to find to knit. She is a fantastic person and a great friend.

Emily from Vegan Knitting. She is a new friend but she is committed to her vegan lifestyle. She inspires me.

And last but not least. Yes, P, it is your turn. P aka Kitty Kitty from KnitBuddies just is. That is all I need to say about her.

So all of you who are nominated are welcome to go out and nominate your own nominees as well.

Birthday Meme

Okay, since I am still reading my Harry Potter book (I am up to chapter 24!!!) I am taking my time and savoring each page. Yes, I know I can go back and read it again but I want to take my time. Plus I have figured out how to knit and read while reading this book. So I am enjoying my knitting time.

But here is the birthday meme as seen on numerous blogs out there. The rules are pretty simple. You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends.

Events –
844 – Gregory IV ends his reign as Catholic Pope.
1919 – The League of Nations is founded.
1945 – Battle of the Bulge ends
1961 – In Washington, D.C. John F. Kennedy delivers the first live presidential television news conference.
2002 – Wikipedia switches to the new version of its software (“Phase II”) aka Magnus Manske Day.

Births –
1477 – Anna, Duchess of Brittany, wife of Charles VIII of France (d. 1514)
1759 – Robert Burns, Scottish poet (d. 1796)

Holidays –
Burns Night – Burns suppers are held in many parts of the world around this date. (Originated in Scotland)

The only person I will tag is P and she already knows about it.
