OK, I'm post-dating this post as I got home too late from too much fun last night to do it. A Blogiversary contest really should post on the blogiversary, don't you think?
On April 16th, 2007 I both turned 53 and started my blog. To celebrate this event I
had the previously mentioned fun am holding a little contest. Everyone who leaves a comment between now and midnight Pacific time on April 23rd will be entered. One entry per commenter, not per comment. I still don't get most of my comment notifications, so either drop me a line at karen at karenjoseattle dot com when you leave your comment or be prepared for me to beg for your e-mail address on the blog so I can notify you. Thanks for that.
At my 6 month Blogiversary Stephanie came to Seattle on her last book tour. That time we were near the end of the tour and I think most of my readers already had her book. This time she's cramming the tour into one big go, so she'll be here next Monday, the 21st. I'll get a signed copy of her latest book to give away for this contest.
I also have this skein of Schaefer's Lola, wound by unknitted. It's a one-of-a-kind springy mix of soft to almost bright yellows, pinks and peaches called A New Day. I bought it for a project and then decided on something else so it's languished unused. I didn't swatch because I've used the yarn before. The skein has 200 yards of 100% superwash wool with a gauge of 5spi. Sorry for the fuzzy photo. This one had the best color.
Thanks to eveyone for being here over the last year. I have fun here, too, and feel surprisingly giddy when I see the nice bumps in my stats chart anytime I actually get up a post. I resolve to get back to more regular blogging right away, just as soon as the rest of my life decides to take a rest.
