What's the Word? Oh, Yeah ... MWAH!

Thanks everyone for all your nice comments about yesterday's post. Upon further reflection, I evidently need not have worried. Bloggers, learn from me. Breathe deeply before posting. Then again, it gave me an opportunity to make a mission statement of sorts.

Affiknitty ... Bringing You Encouragement and Enthusiasm, Since 2005.
Oh yeah, one other thing. What I said about the "mwah's" going over the top? I totally take that back. None of us can ever receive enough "mwah's." I plan to give them out freely, and without reservation. Because it is never not OK to tell someone how much they are appreciated.
Now, on to more pressing matters. Someone predicted recently that I would probably cave and join the Knitting Olympics. Listening to Whit's podcast today weakened my resolve. If I were to join the Knitting Olympics, which I really think I am not, I would knit these.

Please, someone tell me it's too late to join.

Very nice choice. You know, IF you were going to do it, and IF it were not too late. Which it IS. Sorta. ;-)

MWAH! just for the hell of it.

I think that today is the last day to join? Maybe?

Nice project if you do decide to dive in.

oh the suspense! will she or won't she succumb to Olympic pressure!?!?, I say no, someone's got to watch peacefully and relaxingly from the sidelines with me!

And, from me to you, MWAH!!! Just 'cause I like you and just because I want to!

Love the mission statement.

xluofjTonight is the last night to join.

& I agree with you about the "mwah's". I think it is only cliquey if you reserve the "mwah's" only for a select few.

I love your idea of a mission statement. In fact, I love it so much --- MWAH!

Peer pressure, peer pressure. It's a great project. It would be lots of fun. There's great buttons and much commaraderie (no idea if that's spelled correctly, but you know what I mean).

Post as soon as you decide; the suspense is killing me! ;o)

I wasn't going to join, but then the herd mentality (and the midnight deadline) got to me. I'm in.

And you?

It is not too late! :) Come join team Fair Isle with me! Mwah!

Your post yesterday and your mission statement are perfect. Blogland is like the larger world. Some people will enjoy it and others will find fault and criticise. The number one thing is to be kind, and encourage is a great word, too. You should knit the mittens! Enjoy the process and don't push yourself if it isn't fun. And MWWAAH!....cause you're great.

Ooh, purty mittens! One of the groovy things about mittens: you'll be wearing little works of art on your hands that anyone and everyone can see. Here's another mwah from me on both cheeks 'cause I'm Continental like that :)

Blogger msubulldog said...

Chug, chug, chug. . . Oh, I mean, Join, join, join, join! :)

And, Glaistig, I laughed out loud at your Continental comment! :)

Those mittens are gorgeous. Even if you don't make it on THE list, you can still knit them.

See...I'm torn between wanting to know at least ONE knitter (besides me!) who isn't doing the Olympics and telling you that those mittens are damn cute and you should definitely make them! I'll cheer for you from here on the sidelines!
MWAH! (now that I know what that means!)

Love the mission statement, enthusiastic MWAH! ;-) And amen on doling out mwah's freely and without reservation- in the world we live in, can too much love and generosity ever be a bad thing? And it seems that the lure of the dark side may have been too strong after all, Grasshopper.... sending Zen-like, peaceful and process-oriented mwahs to you! Take care, Laura! :-)

And, now, I think it may be too late, but you could still knit along with us.....or ask for special dispensation from the Harlot.....
Those mittens are way too cool!

Instead of joing the olympics, could just the watch the opening ceremonies while knitting yourself cozies for your bronze, silver and gold medals?

And by the way, Mwah!
