Happy Blogiversary!

First of all, I’d like to say thank you for the kind comments and wishes of a happy new year. I really appreciate them and so does my family.

I told my husband earlier in the week that my blogiversary was coming up and he almost rolled on the floor, he was laughing so hard. After he regained his composure he said, "what's the custom gift for your 1 yr blogiversary, a hard drive?" No silly, it's yarn of course. I have a ball of lovely soft pink Anny Blatt angora to give away to one lucky commenter. I will pick the name at random, and announce it on my next post.

To celebrate one year of blogging, I decided to highlight some memorable things from the past year.

a blog was born, finished two objects, and experimented with dyeing yarn

the Knitting Olympics consumed most of my time, although I didn't finish.....

finsihed Tubey, started my first pair of socks

went to the DC Knit Meetup, bought a house

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, signed up for Secret Pal 8

made yellow ankle socks, attended Soxperience 2006

organized the Flip Flop Swap, started an obsession with quilting, went wedding dress shopping with my youngest sister

not much knitting, but lots of home improvement

celebrated my one-year wedding anniversary

October, November, and December really didn't hold much knitting content, but I celebrated my birthday, learned to knit continental, and worked on Christmas gifts (still not done!)

Here's to a completed year of blogging, and another good year with more frequent posts and more finished knits! Happy New Year!

Happy Blogiversary! Pick your husband up off the floor and tell him the appropriate Blogiversary gift is dinner out! ;-)

I LOVED the Flip Flop Swap - thank you again for organizing it - My pal was awesome - we still keep in touch!! Hope to see another swap from you soon!

Kat stole my words. I also loved the Flip Flop Swap. It was my first swap. The ones I have done since have been secret swaps but I think I like knowing who I am exchanging with. It was a lot of fun.

Happy Blogiversary to you!

Happy blogiversary! I'm late in catching up on posts, but I wanted to add my condolences for the loss of your grandmother. I hope this year will be better for you and your family.

Sounds like a lovely year of firsts! Congrats and happy blogiversary. Silly husband--gifts for a first blogiversary are yarn, going out to dinner (I agree with Kat), and patterns or magazine subscriptions (in keeping with a first anniversary being paper and all).
