Today is my Blogiversary!

I was so excited. I had planned to do a contest for my blogiversary... and then I was unemployed, and not by choice. I still may do one this month, maybe give away a set of my stitch markers. What should the contest be? Anyone have any ideas for me? I'll listen to any and all ideas... if I pick yours, you'll get a couple extra entries!!

I got a lovely surprise package from JavaNut. She is my cyber friend from Cali that I know through the She-Knits podcast. It's like one of the best out there... in my opinion!! She sent me a bunch of recycled Sari Silk(gonna make a bag I think), 1/2 skein of Malabrigo, and some lace yarn. She also sent some cotton, chocolate and tea!! I felt so loved that day. I really needed that pick me up. Maybe someday i can return the favor to her. She deserves it so much!

Here is what I made with the Malabrigo, at the suggestion of Java:

It is a gorgeous teal color and if I do move up to northern NY, then they will come in handy this fall. it was my first project using Malabrigo, Magic Loop and cables... I loved the yarn, the magic loop and the cables were a bit annoying(it gets so tight!)... and I will NOT be diving into socks anytime soon. Too much. But people sure do make great socks! :)

Well, put down your ideas for a contest and we'll see how it goes. Maybe I'll do one anyway... the markers are small enough that it's not too expensive to ship! :)

What's this about Northern NY??? Call me!!!!!

How about for a contest have people tell you the weirdest jobs they have ever had... seeing that you are job hunting, this might bring you some funny stories and make your journey a little lighter.

Happy Blogaversary... this means I have known you for a year already, but I feel like we have been friends forever.

I like Kathy's idea. That could be interesting....Or maybe you can do a guessing one, like put your stash or just a certain type and have them guess how much....
Hapy Blogversary....Next year, you'll see we both will be in much different boats, and much better ones...and we can have a grand ole contest...
Love ya and Big Hugs

Hmmm, what about some type of tivia question related to planes or something else you love that they have to guess the answer to.

Or identify a photo

Or just a random drawing

Or, I will keep thinking on this, and get back to ya when I have a brilliant idea.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I totally agree with what you said. The Olympics should be about the athletes. Nothing more.

How about a scavenger hunt? Post clues about things you have posted, and whoever gets the most right wins.
