I've been:


Isn't that amazing????? Especially as I only managed ONE measly post a week last year. I can only attribute this surreal event to the fact that I came over all enthusiastic and made not one but THREE posts in one evening, and someone, somewhere noticed. Oh yes, and it was my BLOGIVERSARY yesterday: This blog is one year old. Awww. I feeeeel good, da di da di da dida.


Thankyou

BOB peepl. (Is that the same BOB as the one in Blackadder? - No? OH, ok - apparently it stands for Brilliant Oscillating Blog Award. Well OOOOOKay)
Now the sad thing is that I can't actually put this award in my sidebar where it belongs because I don't know how! I've been trying and Blogger just seems to ignore it -Help! (see how undeserving I am of any blog award?) - if some kind soul can drop me a line and tell me how to put a block of html code in the side bar I'll be eternally grateful. It was never a problem with the OLD blogger...


For now, well, gush, gush, I'd like to thank the following peepl, without whom the blog wouldn't have been possible: My ma and pa, who put me here, my dh, for not minding me spending hours on the computer (Housework?? wossat?) , and my dogs for just loving me. and Donald Sutherland for being Vernon L Pinkley in The Dirty Dozen. TA.

Wow, we have lots in common!

I didn't think anyone remembered It's a Beautiful Day besides me!

I also saw Pink Floyd. At the university of Cinn. Fieldhouse as their homecoming band.

Love your blog and please do not tell anyone that I am a man who crochets.

S-h-h-h-h...

Found ya via' Dirk. Nice blog you've got here. Have just finished reading your 21 favorite books list, and am thinking I've got some new books I've gotta read. Do wish you'd have posted a closer-up pic of your stitch markers, as I'd love to see what somebody else's look like. ;) I'm a crocheter with aspirations to do more.

Nice meeting ya!!!!

Jay said...

I have just wandered over from .... yup .. Dirk's place.

Congrats on the BOB award. It is most deserved.

As for putting your award in the side bar.
Are you apart of BETA? If so, just go into "layout" and on the side bar you will see an "add page element" option. Just click ad picture and upload the picture.

If you don't have BETA you will have to go into the HTML Body and ad another section. Not so sure about that part.

Hey, it looks like you've made it! A BOB award, your first blogiversary and loads of visitors. Congratulations!

KSHIPPYCHIC said...

Hi and congrats on both!! Have you thought of teaching some knitting for bloggers classes? I would love to learn. The projects you have pictured look great!

Malnurtured Snay said...

Clearly, your resolution this year should be to blog more.

Nice to meet you, TutleyMutley. If you ever come near my enchanted forest, please drop in. We have some wonderful paddling... you can spend hours alone on the water beside beautiful mountains and woodland.

And perhaps you would be able to find my dropped stitch...

masgblog said...

congrats on the one year milestone.....found your link through dirk-star.....I'll be back (as Arnie used to say)

Betty said...

Happy Blogiversary and congratulations! Guess who sent me? I'll be back.

Zen Wizard said...

Congratulations on the Bob Award.

Though, if Dirk got one, they must be giving them out like "50% off" pizza coupons, nowadays...

English Muffin said...

Well done to a fellow award winner!
Thought I'd drop by and say hello! I really enjoyed reading your posts! I used to knit a lot as a small child. I once knitted a pair of stripy mittens that I was so proud of...my mother still keeps them, along with all the clumsy artwork I did at school......
I drop by again soon. And happy anniversary with your blog! :)

Catknit said...

Glad I'm not the only one who can't do the links thingy, congrats on the award and your blogaversary.

TutleyMutley said...

Wow - where did all these PEOPLE come from?! That Dirk_star might have had something to do with it.
I'm overwhelmed! HIYA you all! Isn't the internet community FAB!
I feel all warm and fuzzy.

I'm just back from being marooned in Ireland and jetlagged too - had to catch the night ferry as the gales yesterday and the day before meant all the others had been cancelled. Looks like I've got a lot of catching up to do...

Dirk_Star said...

Hey, I don't know know any of these people...

They just follow me around.

Peanut said...

Yeah, heard about those gales from my mum and dad.. they had to go out and put up fences again! :o)

Thanks for stopping by my place.. was nice to see you...
