Long outstanding duty needing rectifying as soon as...

Back in OMG was it as long ago as July (!), I was awarded this by Maylin:

Shamefully, I haven't blogged much since. Awards seem to have this effect on me! Isn't she lovely though? too much time spent on Ravelry. enough excuses.
Thanks Maylin, I'm touched (and was back then too).

Rules in English:

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award-winning, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winning and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y pico" blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.

How to choose from all those creative, wonderful, knitterly blogs out there? With difficulty.
but hold my nose in I go, eeeny meeny miny mo...

For sheer devotion to blogging and the knitting world the number one spot has to go to WyeSue.
Sue is generous, creative, a knitterly genius and, as fellow director of the UKKCG, a tireless supporter of fibrey excellence and knitted underwear... Wye Sue? Wye Sue indeed.

Next, for intelligent discussion, wonderful fairisle knitting and dyeing and technique: The Feral Knitter, truly untamed and wild - Janine Bajus.

For exciting, original patterns and enviable talent (have you visited the twist collective yet?), panache, youthful knitterly energy, and from the UK to boot, Ysolda...

A local lass with a wonderful knitterly talent and who caught on to spinning so quickly I was jealous, a great blog and lots of courage in the face of chronic disability: Denise at Pixie's Paraphernalia

Lastly, another local lass and knitter and fellow nurse AND especially someone who is such a brilliant photographer I really think she could be the next Jane Brocket... Asti over at Lilys house
I could drool over some of those pics all day.

I read a lot of other blogs I could have added to this list with equal enthusiasm - Anni, Helen, Jane, Rosie, Yvonne, Anne, Kate, Christina, Natalie, Kath, Angie and on and on and on. What a talented lot.
