Internet love.

I just had to post about how amazed I am at the love I am receiving from the internets in relation to my yarny efforts.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I am still a bit amazed that some people are actually following my humble little blog here *waves at followers*.  I wonder how you found me?  And why you chose to stay :)

I love getting comments.  I'm new to blogging, so I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to blog etiquitte.  Should I reply to comments, and how do I do that?  I feel like a bit of a dunce commenting on my own post.  In any case, just assume I say 'thank you' for your comment, and if you ask a question I will certainly endeavour to answer it!

I also feel a bit famous, because some of my favorite bloggers have recently posted on my blog, in particular:
So thanks all for visiting.  I am a bit of an internet stalker, so if you leave a comment for me, or follow me, I will track you down and follow your blog, and probably your Rav account too... (That's not creepy, right?)

Separately, I am super proud of my wedding shawl, so I posted it in the July thread for 11 shawls in 11 on Rav.  I am amazed that I got over 120 'loves' in 8 days!  It's such a small thing, but I certainly feel warm and fuzzy nevertheless <3.

    hi ! what a cute post! :)

    I don't know what are the general rules but for me this works: if I get a comment on my post and someone asks me a question I usually go to their blog and comment their post and say thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog - and then I answer their question there...that was they don't have to go back to my blog and check the post again to see if I answered already or not... - does that make sense?
    oh and I have no idea how I found you...did you participate in Yarn Along at Small Things? - maybe that's how we've met? ...I don't know...but I can tell you why I stayed - because you create such beautiful things and your blog is a great inspiration for me and I can't wait till you post some photos of your next project :)

    and thank you for listing my blog in your post :)

  2. Thanks for the mention! I get that warm and fuzzy feeling when people take the time to comment on my blog too :)

    As for the 120 loves on your shawl, they are well deserved, that shawl is beautiful.

  3. The thing I love most about blogging is the support you get from the community!!!! Thanks for the great shout-out!!!!
