Spots before my eyes.........................

The delightful Linz has nominated me for an award.....Richard Branson eat your heart out. It's the "I love your Blog Award" . I just want to say that I hope this does not lead to a plethora of people who knew me in childhood selling stories to The Sunday Post....neither do I see Murdo-themed Barbie-type dolls flooding Toys R Us....( although they would be a good profit margin for the manufacturers as they would need shedloads-less latex/plastic for the chest area than usual). This is a the following are the "lucky" awardees I would like to pass onto...

a/Melody Knits ( a blog from a chief enabler of high repute and a wit to boot!)
b/Yarnsnob ( I learn and admire)
c/Gilrean ( this is the sock knitters'!)
d/Kathleen Turner (really talented designer)
e/Yarnharlot ( Ok, I know it might sound smarmy but this IS my fave blog as I laugh out loud)
f/Yarnyard ( a blog that covers yarn to chickens to sheds...yes, sheds :)
g/ (check out her wonderful Eleanor pattern)
h/Probablyjane (amazing sock patterns and her blog is a great read)
i/The Cabled Climber ( a rock-climbing knitter)

The rules/guidelines are as follows .1. Post this award on your blog.2. Add a link to the person who sent you the award.3. Nominate at least 4 other bloggers, and add their links as well.4. Leave a comment at the new recipients' blogs, so they know they got an award.

So why "spots before my eyes??? Well, Linz has a bit of a thing about Ladybirds...a bit like Bill Gates has a thing about, as a thanks for my award, here's some Ladybird patterns I like........
