thanks to all of you for your kind words and prayers on behalf of my grandma. we still don’t know when she’s having surgery; she’s meeting with the surgeon on wednesday and i suppose we’ll know after that. i started (and finished) the first of her footies today. it’s my first “real” sock ever. i had a few problems with the heel, (mostly from not paying close enough attention) but overall i think it went really well. the picture is horrible, i know, i’ll be sure to take better pictures (and talk more about them) when i have both done. (yes, there is a jeans imprint on my leg, and yes, the door is really that dirty, please don’t ask me why… it was like that when i got here).
it seems that i am indeed on a lucky streak. this morning i found out that i won a prize over at the red scarf project blog. rowan felted tweed… how gorgeous!
because i have been so insanely lucky (randy says i should play the lottery ^^) and because i think someone should get to be happy on my birthday while i’m slaving away on an accounting exam, i am having my own little contest. i’ll probably add pictures of the prize later, but it’s a skein of malabrigo in peach tree (mostly browns and oranges), a skein of patons pebbles (blue), and probably a few magnets or something.
here’s how it goes: (because i love how kelli does her contests)
if you want in, between now and approximately 10:30pm EST friday february 9th (whenever i get back from my exam and am able to think again), you should leave me a comment (on this post, please) telling me about a memorable birthday experience. happy, funny, sad, whatever you want. on friday, i’ll tell about my somewhat memorable tenth birthday (a decade ago, sheesh!) and choose the winner (randomly). sound easy enough? oh, if you don’t knit, tell me a story anyway! if you win, maybe i’ll knit you something. ^^
