It's one thing to appear in the Somerville News with someone else's name below my picture, and it's a completely different level of knitter-ness to be mentioned on a real knit designer's blogwho concludes her entry with GREAT JOB KATHY!
Holy smokes, can someone assure me that this is for real?
Wow. So Annie Modesitt is my hero, my inspiration, the reason I still knit, and now she refers dozens, hundreds of knitters who read her blog to my Combination Knitting page and to my knitting videos! Thank you, Annie! If not for you, my purl rows would still be 50% bigger than my knit rows! I love to purl because of you! Those fan letters I write you, where I gush about your patterns and your awesome knitting mentality and how I want to take all your classes are 100% genuine, I admire you so much! I hope you make it out to Boston very soon :). I'm thinking of knitting that cabled bag in your book, too cute for words :).
Since I have my own domain, I get to be the ultimate stalker and view all my web stats. Annie's post earlier in the day generated 106 hits to my website (okay, some of those might have been me, just making sure that this whole thing is real), and 163 downloads of my knitting videos! It's eating up my monthly bandwidth, but not an ounce of complaining from me - you're welcome to it, download all you want!
Readers, do you forgive me for this very self-centered post? I just had to share my two seconds of fame :).
