I'm so tickled, I'd like to thank the academy, and my agent...and ...and...
NO. Really. I'm delighted to have won! This painting was the first I saw when I went out to search, and nothing else (tho' there were many I liked) said "early spring" to me quite the way this one did. I cannot wait to see how Roxanne interprets it - I just know it will be gorgeous!
I'm Knitnana and you can visit me at my blog where I detail everything knitting-related in my life. I'm also Nana Sadie Rose, which is my fabric bag business. I live with my two kitties: The Meezer and The Calico Curmudgeon, and I sew, knit, and work a full time job and have a business client as well. (Whew!)
(No, I have no life outside of that, it's true!)
Well, not exactly true. I have countless friends all over the world, thanks to the internet! And I have a daughter, three grandsons, and a Big Sister I knit for, when I'm not just knitting for me. I don't knit sweaters. None. Nada. Never. Socks, felted bags, scarves, shawls, mitts. Lace and cables. But no sweaters...
What I enjoy doing most is knitting to classical music, opera, and books on CD. I see that as the ultimate retirement to aspire to. So I'm stashing yarn now for my retirement - and Roxanne's yarns are my most favorite of all (so there's a LOT of Zen Yarn Garden in my stash!!)
Thanks, again, Roxanne! I can't wait to see this colorway!
