And the winner is ....

mzpookie. Since I don't have an email address for you, you're going to have to get in touch with me! :) Thank you all for your guesses, everyone got one entry, except for amy and punkin. They guessed correctly, and each of them got two entries. I guess it was mzpookie's lucky day, though. She gets a sock knitting prize. Lil AR helped me choose the prize, and picked the yarn. I made the stitch markers, though. Oh, yeah, the year was 1989. Hubby was only 16 when that picture was taken. Whatta cutie. It was those dimples that got me!

Speaking of sock knitting. That's pretty much what I did yesterday. We had a snowday (again). The kids were sapping my computer time, so I got down to the toe of my new Jaywalker sock, courtesy of Marj. It is so cute and stripy. I do love the jaywalkers! Lookit that adorable stitch marker on the back of the sock! Love it!
Well, I'd better get busy doing some housework, or knitting on that sock. Guess which one is most likely to happen. hehe
Knit on!!

You love me; You really love me!

Lookie what I got! Rhoda, Carrie, and Marce all gave me a 'You make my day award'! Thank you, Guys!! I was hoping somebody would ~ hehe

So, I am giving it back to all of them, and these people. I made a list, and I had way more than 10, so if you're not on here, and you're a knitblogger, you're still on the list in my heart, but man...that's a lot of linking!! (Lazy Girl!)
So in no particular order:

Go check out their blogs. Some are funny, some are moms, all are knitters, and when I read them, I feel like I'm catching up with a good friend. Check out the three that named me, too. They also make my day!

Knit picture time! I finished the bunny. It is so darn cute! I probably had enough of the bunny wool to do the inside of the ears, but I was chicken, and plied it with some sock yarn, just to make sure.
The other pic is of some goodies that came in the mail for me recently. I won a contest at Marj's blog! She sent me the cutest stitch markers, and some of my favorite candies. I don't know how she knew, but really my faves! Sock yarn! You know I love me some sock yarn. Thank you so much, Marj!! I love it all!
I also sold some sock yarn on my shop, so I ordered rovings. I got the Sunset Fire Sparkle (orange), and Desert Flower Sparkle (blueish) Superwash Merino from The Ranch. It is so soft, and sparkly, I love it! I'm going to spin them seperately then ply them together. The awesome Alien Autopsy (black, purple, green, and white) Superwash Merino came from Amy's Babies. It's really soft, too, and the colors are great!
OK, time to go get ready for tomorrow. Have a great weekend! Don't forget to enter my contest, if you haven't. It's a sock knitting surprise if you win!!

Post #200 Contest!!

This is my 200th post!! I can't believe it, but that's what it says, so to celebrate, I am having a fun little contest. The prize is sock knitting related. Everyone who leaves a comment guessing when Hubby graduated from high school gets one entry into the contest, and anyone who guesses correctly, gets an extra entry! So, here is Hubby's Mom's favorite Senior Picture of Hubby. If you guess what year he graduated, you might win!!I just wish I could find a copy of his fave sr. pic, he was very cool in his leather jacket. lol. I'll pick a winner in one week, Monday February 11th, so get guessing! Oh, yeah, there may be a couple of hints in the 2006 posts, but checking out that style might help, too. ;)
p.s. Even if you know me, and know what year Hubby graduated, leave a comment for an entry!! I'm talking to you!
