And the winner is.....

Sarah of knit7together. Send me your address and I'll get your yarn in the mail asap. Thanks to the people who commented. I can't believe I've been blogging for a year already. How fast the time flies.

I'm so sad the Packer's lost last night!! It was like they just forgot to play the other half of the game!!! Oh well, they have a lot more games to play and hopefully win. Tom and Patrick had fun going over to Green Bay with our neighbors, Tom and Gus. It was the first time for them to be at Lambeau Field and also Gus' first pro football game. They are Bears fans, but we still like them. :)

I went scrapbooking Friday night and all day on Saturday. I was able to catch up on my Christmas book and start one for Todd. Now my plan is to get pictures and stuff organized for Grant's book. I will be going on a retreat November 9-11, and that will enable me to get a lot done in his book. Maybe I'll even get "caught" up. If I just did a few pages a day it wouldn't be such a task, but I don't have any place to keep all the supplies out. I must get my old sewing room cleaned out and put together for a scrapbooking room.

I woke up yesterday with my left eye swollen almost shut. It was the weirdest thing. It's not red or yucky, so I don't think I have pink-eye, but I went to the doctor just in case. She wasn't sure, but is treating me for pink-eye. I have drops to put in 4 times a day. She also wanted me to take Claritin for a week to see if that helps. This is so strange. My puffy lower eye is touching my glasses!! Okay, I'm off to turn the heel on a sock. Happy knitting!!

How's this for distraction?......Cute puppy and a contest!

I have to apologize for the lack of knitting content on this "knitting" blog. I'm not sure what happened to my knitting mojo, but it is just not present at the time. I'm still working on the felted slippers and that's it. I may start a sock today since it is October and time for Socktoberfest. Here is a picture of my cute/naughty puppy! I just love this dog. He will be one on October 26 which also happens to be my husband's birthday too. He loves to find Patrick's shoes!! Now, if the shoes were put in their correct spot this would be a difficult task, but since they are usually just left by the back door, it's not too much of a problem. Just as long as someone catches him before the shoes get eaten!!

On Thursday, Oct. 4 it will be my one year blogiversary!! So I am having a contest. All you have to do is comment and tell me a cute pet story. Pretty simple. As you can tell, I love my pets a lot and have many funny stories I can tell about them. Please share some with me. I will give one commenter a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy yarn in the Nightwatch colorway. I can't seem to locate my camera ( think a child "borrowed" it), but I'll put one up asap. Comments will be taken until Sunday, Oct. 7. I'll just put the numbers in a hat and have a kid pick a number. Thanks!!
