It’s been a year!! And yes, it sounds cliche to say but I honestly have no idea where the time went. Three years ago when I went to knitting camp for the first time I met Caryn. It was instant connection and we’ve been in touch every since. It was to her that I first mentioned my desire to have a blog (her’s is great and I love the new layout) but I had no idea how to do it, where to begin, nothing. I didn’t have a clue, so the idea lanquished. Then I met Michelle. This wonderful lady stopped by the shop one day and again instant connection. She works with computers and is a knitter. She was more than happy to help me get up and running (more like holding my hand). Thank you Michelle…I’m grateful.
There was so much to learn, but like a dog with a bone, I was determined to make this work. And I think I’ve done a pretty good job. Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, who comments, who shares and who celebrates knitting (and life) with me.
This coming year is going to be a full and wonderful one and I’m really looking forward to it. So many bloggers get tired of doing this. They get tired of the pressure (I think self imposed) of posting, maintaining and in many cases putting their lives “out there”. It does take dedication but the return makes it worth it.
So anyway, as promised, let’s get to the gift giving. A few weeks ago I posted a riddle which all of you solved, correctly. As I said if you answered the riddle or left a comment anytime between then and today there would be some goodies to be had. I also said I’d announce the winner tomorrow but why wait.
The winners are…Carolyn (who’s become a very good friend), Jessica (who gets a special thank you for introducing me to Ravelry last year at camp) and Maritza (for noticing my new banner). Your gifts will be mailed asap ladies (and if you have a preference let me know). Hope you enjoy!!!
Now this is a blogoversary and it wouldn’t be a celebration without something sweet to eat. WARNING: You may be tempted to lick your computer screens.
As soon as I saw them I knew I had to make them, home made Oreo cookies. And YUM doesn’t even come close to describing these. While I was making them my entire apartment (and fifth floor hallway) smelled like heaven!! Even my neighbors were curious.
I can’t tell you how much fun these were to make. I posted a link to the recipe a couple of days/posts ago. Give them a try, you’ll love them. For those of you attending the street fair in Tarrytown tomorrow I may have one or two left.
I think the best part aside from the eating was putting them together. It was a bit time consuming but when you’re eating and assembling you hardly notice the time passing.
All in all my friends…a wonderful year (awesome dessert) and I look forward to more. Thanks everyone!
FO pictures tomorrow…
