I am very touched to have had my blog nominated by someone who has such a fabulous blog with the most beautiful patterns, she really is the accessorie Queen. (She would have been the first on my list). Please be sure to check out her blog Smariek I promise you won't be disappointed.
I would like to nominate the following blogs:
stitchesofviolet - She is a master knitter who generously shares the results of her tests swatches that she has purchased and gives an informed opinion of that yarn's performance. Her designs are elegant and the quality of her knitting is superb. Isn't it wonderful when someone cares enough to give you the benefit of their experience. She also has delightful photos on her blog that I love to see, visiting her blog can make you feel like your on vacation.

riihivilla - Her blog will astound you with her knowledge of plants, she gives details about her dye experiences, its like attending a private class, her blog is bilingual and English is one of the languages she posts in.

gilraensknits The prettiest yarns are matched to the perfect sock pattern (an accomplishment in and of itself) this is what her blog excels in. She also documents her blog with a very clear photo of the yarn prior to the sock being knitted, teasing us with their beauty.
Criminyjickets This guy has a wonderful sense of humor and warmth that flows thru his blog. His knitted projects are quite varied, he is an experienced knitter that isn't afraid to experiment. To top that now this incredible gentleman is spinning!
I had to add 2 other blogs that I find inspiring not only on a craft level, but these bloggers are so supportive fellow bloggers, their comments are so warm and heartfelt and their beautiful photos delight my heart.

woolwindings The photography alone with bring you back over and over again. When I visit her blog I feel like I'm on a treasure hunt, what will she show me next?
Ambermoggie I love her photos of the UK (wish I could be there right now). Her colorful projects, lush photos, the poetry she inserts in the perfect places lets you drift off in your imagination to places of wonder.
