Proximity or Vicinanza Award :)

We humbly thank The Fluffies as well as Sam's mistress for this awesome award - hey, it is a double nomination!!

“This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

When I started this blog I did not have any idea that one day I would get so many readers, and that they would become friends with time. I am truly grateful (and Miss Eve is too) for all of you, and for the support you gave us when we were in trouble, but also for the times we can share the joy together - like now that Miss Eve has finally found a new companion in Neville.

So, it is good to know you're nearby - or how I'd say in Italian, "e' bello sapervi vicini".

We've come to the moment when we should be passing on this award to 8 more blogs... I don't think I have 8 to nominate that haven't yet received it, but a few I have, and they are:

1. my crafty Japanese-Italian friend Azzuka
2. Kiki and Eeschen, in Germany
3. Simone the black lop
4. Maarit, the bunny lover who cannot keep a bunny because of allergy
5. Lara and Joey the bunny

I remembered Simone from my first blogging days and was so glad to see that she's back and blogging, so she needs an award.
Azzuka, Kiki, Maarit and Lara I met through Ravelry, another networking site for knitters and fabric addicts - I participated in the Winter Bunderland swap with Maarit as a hostess and Kiki as my victim, and Lara told me about the swap just in time so I could sign up :)

Now go and get blogging :)

An award well deserved. It would be interesting to find just how many bunny slaves knit too, it seems to be a disportionately high number compared to the general public.
