Summertime Sunshine!

Wow. Just Wow.

When I first started this blog I was a weird little college freshman who had just learned to knit and wanted to share my art with the world. I honestly, as most of my fellow bloggers say as well, never thought this would pick up and people would actually WANT to read what I have to say. I truly thank Ravelry for most of my success, as well as my amazing friend Pumpkin Spins, of whom introduced me to several of my regularly followed blogs and many of your regular readers. I really cannot say how much I love reading all your blogs and also receiving all your comments (even though I don't reply to them!)

With that being said, Sarah at Sezzaknits nominating my little are blog for a Sunshine Award. I am so pleased to be able to share this with you all, for you have all made it possible for me to enjoy knitting and art that much more!
