That's me! That's me!

I’ve been looking for holiday issues of my favourite knitting mags for a few weeks now but couldn’t find them anywhere (granted only really special newsstands carry knitting magazines and there just aren’t many really special newsstands where I live). But today, I finally found one and bought a stack of holiday ‘zines including the Special Holiday Issue of IK(did you know there was a special issue? This one is not part of the subscription so you’ll need to go out and get one!) and Vogue Knitting’s Knit Simple. I picked up a club at the food court near my work and settled myself down to read. Imagine my excitement when I turned to page 20 of Knit Simple to find that my blog was profiled along with some other blogging idols like the Yarn Harlot, Mason Dixon Knitting and Whip Up!



And, as if that wasn’t enough…there is a screenshot of my blog on page 22 right next to Knitty for crying out loud!



Seriously! How cool is that? No really? Naturally I gathered my stuff and headed right back to the newsstand to buy another copy. I’ll have to frame one and keep the other under my pillow and flip to it every once and again ;0)

And all this time…I had no idea! Did you?

I think I need a little lie-down…
