My old junior high/high school friend from the West, who now lives on the East Coast (and who I've been reunited with via facebook) has two blogs I have started reading and really like:
A Happy Knitter and Mama Eats Her Peas.
This happy knitter/mama was one of my first friends when my family moved to Colorado right before I started seventh grade, and who again was one of my first friends on facebook. We were rather inseperable there for a while, and I'm glad we're back in touch!
Check out her Happy Knitter site ASAP... She has a give away going on for some really cute scarves, hats and...a bikini!
