Countdown to 100th post - part 1

I am so happy that everyone is entering my 100th post contest! I hope everyone is inspired to start that "one day" project. I started mine last night. I am officially beginning my (3rd attempt) Clapotis! I am using my Brook's Farm yarn from the Taos Wool Festival.




I don't have a progress picture yet - but as soon as I do - I will post! I love the way the colors are blending together. I think I will stick with it this time and get a finished Clap!

I other news... for those of you I didn't already email claiming international fame and fortune (hee hee) - here is an article from the Albuquerque Tribune. It's about the Albuquerque Stitch and Bitch that I went to while I was out there for work. I am quoted at the end of the article. Yeah!


For those of you who haven't yet - don't forget to enter my 100th post contest - see details in the previous post.

That colorway is gorgeous! Was it from the place where you had to really elbow to get through because they were having a sale? I know it's not from LaLana otherwise you would have a constant rash around the neck!

(I would also like to add a challenge to these questions. Everyone who actually finishes their personal “One day” project before SP9 is over (January 31st 2007) will be entered to win a skein of some yummy yarn!. So let “one day” be today! I will post again when SP9 is almost over and ask to see pictures!)

A sweater for myself..

6. And finally – since it is October - what are you going to be for Halloween?

I'm sorry, we don't do Halloween, but we have Sinterklaas in December. Its an old men who looks like Santa Claus, but has a lot of men helping him (Zwarte Pieten, Black "Jacks"). They give presents to the children, if they behave themselves the last year.
