You always remember your first...

I'm back and I'm swamped. I took all of your advice and didn't go online for three weeks.

Care to take a guess how many emails I had waiting for me in my "In" box?

Care to win a prize if you do?

OK, here's the deal. Take today and tomorrow. Leave me a guess in the comments and the one who is closest will get some scrumpdiliumptious sock yarn from little old me.

See? It pays to keep checking the blog for new material. Nothing for weeks, then...

BAM!

my first contest.

Too tired to post more today. Look for full post tomorrow after I have reoriented myself.

Good time was had by all at the lake, and I have exciting news to impart re: the Cherry Country Shawl.

Tune in tomorrow, boys and girls, and I'll tell you the story of the Briar Rose and the neophyte...

Hey there! Welcome back! I've been checking on you every day to see when you would return! I so enjoyed meeting you at Threadbear, and can't wait to see your pictures from our day there. Did you finish your shawl? Is it wonderful? Oh, a guess? 1287 emails. At least.
