Still on Track AND A Contest!!!

Hi all! I'm still on track in the August madness I've created for myself. I'm one day (and one skein I need to pick up) away from finishing my Daddy's afghan. I finished one sleeve of a baby sweater and have one more to do and I'm right at half-way finished with my Branching Out scarf.

I measured all of my swatches, started making pattern notes and am heading in the right direction on the sweaters. I stayed out of the craft room today as it's stinking hot and there's no A/C out there - tomorrow = fan.

You've stayed with for this long now the fun stuff:

A Contest!
August 9th is my 2-year blogiversary - really I've been droning on about knitting and crafts for 2 long years. Leave me a comment between now and Midnight on the 9th and I'll put your name in a drawing to win
This:


along with a couple of other surprises. So delurk and leave me a comment for your chance to win FREE STUFF!!

I'll keep you posted!

I wonder what the odds of being first to post do for winning or losing. Its kinda fun to be first. Love the prize. Thanks for having a contest.

I'm one of your bloglines subscribers. I don't remember how I found you, but there's been so much here that fit me on top of the knitting and other crafts...the toddlers at home (I have 3), homeschooling, the meal plan Monday totally inspired me...and well, now I'm thinking I need to get my knitting machine out. I think it's still at my parents house. I havent' needed it since I got married. I never really learned how to use it. I'm impressed with your totals thus far. Even if you don't finish Ambitious August, you've rocked your Christmas list quick. km

Hi! I just found your blog through Granny Along! I felt immediately at home at your blog, for we share the same layout! Yay Pink!

I love yarn and knitting. I've been wanting to get my hands on an Elizabeth Zimmerman book, but haven't had the chance. Crossing my fingers!

Happy Blogiversary!

I planned to say happy blogiversary but...yes. Already done.
So think Alice in Wonderland...("A Very Merry Unbirthday" to be exact)

A very merry blogbirthday to you, to you.
A very merry blogbirthday to you,
It's great to knit with someone and I guess that you will do.
A very merry blogbirthday to you!

I loved your "They're coming to take me away... " reference the other day. "... with trees and flowers and chirping birds, and basket weavers who sit and twiddle their thumbs and toes..."

Happy Blogiversary! :)
