A Day In History....

Yes, today is a historic day. My Buddy Bobbi, aka~Cameron, remembered...

Today is my 2nd Blogiversary!!!

Who would have thought that this would lead to the many, many friends I've made worldwide by writing my piddly, sometimes boring little posts! I have to admit that I had NO idea what I was doing when I started...I've enjoyed every single moment, and feel that even though I may not get to meet all those I chat with (though it's a goal to meet as many as I can)...we'll be forever friends. I've said it a million times...creating this blog has been such a rich and rewarding experience, I'd do it again in a heartbeat!...

Now....a Blogiversary calls for a contest! This is a SIMPLE one to enter...

What does every blogger live for? Well, yes if you are a knit blogger the answer is yarn...but I'm looking for another answer.

Comments....Comments....Comments! I know there are a lot of people who cruise by my blog, but the not everyone leaves a comment. I think the most I've had in 2 years has been 16. I'd like more!
SO...Your mission is...leave me a comment, tell others via a blog post about my contest...be sure and let me know where you read about my contest (I'd love to meet more bloggers)....see I just love saying contest...if you chose to complete this mission...there will be a "wool prize" in your future...the winner will be chosen at random.
This post will self-destruct (contest will end) on November 1st...(queue music) Lets see some comments!!!


Oh...the other historic moment that happened today...my FAVORITE BIL was born!! Happy B-day Jerry!!

Now...what's a knit blog without some kind of "Knitting Content"? My ongoing UFO, Civil War Shawl (I started the KAL back in March...now they are on their 3rd round with the KAL...and I'm not finished), man~this shawl is taking forever...it's so big that I can't stretch it all out and knitting one row takes forever! This is why I have multiple projects going...



Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

Happy Anniblogversary!!
You know Robin, your blog was the very first one I read..I came via YT..and just fell in love with your format and being very blog ignorant..having no idea you lived in the area..and now..we've even met!..It was a while before I blogged but I continued to sneak over to your 'Coop' and see what was going on.
The Shawl..is breathtaking!!...
Happy Knitting and Spinning~~

Although it wasn't through your blog that I "met" you, I'm certainly glad I have and enjoy your blog as one of my regular reads. The shawl is amazing. This one will be spectacular when it's finished. :o)

Birdsong said...

Happy Blogiversary! Your shawl is just amazing and congrats on sticking with such a huge project. I think it was you who found me, and I am glad to have gotten to know you a bit the past two years. Remind me to send you a link to my neighbor, Stephanie's blog; she does knitting and chickens too!

Lynda said...

I enjoyed the picture of your shawl. I wanted to try it, but the amount of knitting was rather daunting.

Happy Blogiversary and I found you through a link from http://calgalatrpi.blogspot.com/. And I'm a good Indian, so I followed directions and came to wish you well.

Marianne said...

Robin said...

Happy Blogiversary to YOU!!! The shawl is absolutely beautiful! Love the center. I hope you don't mind but I'm tagging you for 8 random things. This is like passing on the recipe chain letter -- you pass it on and hope people don't mind.

Anne said...

Oh Happy Blogiversary!! I'll be adding a link in my Sunday Bloglines - wow I've not even hit a year yet, I can't imagine 2!
