My Blogaversary Contest:Let's talk about this first. It's what everyone has been waiting for, right?
My blogaversary is on October 21st, 2007. It'll mark 2 years of blogging with Blogger. Last year, when I had a stalker, and moved to Wordpress for a bit, I lost all my comments. It started fresh last year about this time just after my honeymoon when I moved back to Blogger. Before Blogger I used to have an Open Diary - I think they still exist - but the website (I just checked it) doesn't look like the one I used to do. I still have all those posts saved to a file in MS-WORD. Maybe one day I'll add those old posts (from 2000-2001) here. We'll see.
So back to the contest! Yes! You want details!
All you have to do is be the 2121st commenter. (2121 for the 21st of October). I'm not telling you how close or how far we are from 2121, but I expect it to reach that number by the 21st of October, that's why I am announcing it now! However, I will only announce on the 21st (my actual blogaversary) who the winner is.
And what do you win, you ask?
Here's the loot:
And here's what's included in the loot:
- Regia Sock Yarn

- Bamboo DPNs for sock knitting
- A Cookie A Pattern of YOUR choice from my shop
- A set of handmade stitch markers by me (I'll customize them for the winner!)
- Sock Blocker Keychain Kit
- A ton of fun extra goodies
Good luck to all!
This morning I had an apointment across town at 10 am and then did some returns in the are. I met my parents & Jenn (with Jakob) for lunch and then headed to the movies with Jenn and the kids. The movie for Starz & Strollers this week was Feast of Love. "A meditation on love and its various incarnations, set within a community of friends in Oregon, and is described as an exploration of the magical, mysterious and sometimes painful incarnations of love." - A story for anyone with an appetite for love. I cried. I really enjoyed the movie. I definitely recommend it.
After the movie I picked up a few things I needed from Walmart and then headed home to do a few things before going knitting tonight at the NDG Knitting Meetup. It was a lovely crowd tonight, and although I unfortunately didn't get much knitting done tonight (2 repeats only), I got to see friends and that's enough for me. If I make the deadline Saturday, great, if not, my FIL will get his gifts (that he doesn't know about) when it's done! Hopefully by the end of next week when we do Friday night poker.
Get this - I called Sean's doctor's office to book his flu shot. It's only available in November. That's fine, and that's not the problem. Turns out his doctor is on Maternity leave as of the end of this month (when I went to his 6 month appointment she didn't mention she was pregnant nor did she look pregnant) (apparently the secretary on the phone says she's very pregnant). Anyhow, so I asked how long she's on maternity leave for, they don't know. I ask who is replacing her, as Sean has his 12 month checkup in December. No one. No one is replacing her? WTF?? Now what??
Now Available at Robyn's Nest, Stretchy Circulars (10" 2.75mm, great for sock knitting!) (Above) (I received other lengths in stock as well, as they will be listed shortly. I also received Novelty Bamboo Knitting Needles (9") in various lengths that say "I heart Knitting" on them! They are awesome!
