You say it's your birthday?

As of today, One Small Stitch for Mankind is two years old!

happy blogiversary to me...

Thank you to anyone out there who has been with me through my knitting misadventures! I'm certainly not all that interesting, but I spent a little time yesterday going through the old blog posts, and it's nice to see the progress I've made over time (my first socks, my first sweater!), and that's the reason that I started to blog in the first place - to have an outlet to chronicle my knitting. It's not much, but it's a lot to me! In honor of the blogiversary, I am having my first-ever contest. One comment of any that are posted to this entry between now and June 14 will be chosen at random to recieve a special knitting-related package from yours truly. It's my way of saying "thank you" to those of you who have managed to stay awake while reading my remedial and innane posts!

The yarn cakes featured above? That's three skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Candy Apple that I have had for quite some time now:

no yarn was harmed in the shooting of the last picture

It's tried to be several things, but I've decided that its latest incarnation will be Green Gable. If the yarn requirements fit, knit it, right? Right. Wish me luck. I will need it to have the fortitude to finish another sweater.

In other news, Diakeito sock #1 is in the home stretch:

it's getting there...

Hope all of the Pittsburgh bloggers have a grand time at World Wide Knit in Public Day this Saturday. I am pretty bummed that I won't be able to join you guys, as I will be in Virginia for the weekend. However, wherever we are that day, I will knit in public.

Happy, happy blogiversary! You probably know by now that your blog prompted me to start one of my own, so thanks for that. It's been great getting to know you in the non-virtual world as well; I am up for yarn shopping any time you are!

Blogging rocks almost as much as knitting. Congratulations on two years! Happy knitting.

Yay, it's your blogging birthday! Congratulations on two years! I'm glad I found your blog, and thanks for inviting me to knit at B&N!

Also, putting candles on your yarn? You are much braver than I am.

Happy Blogiversary! Mine came and went and I didn't even think about it. Love the sock! I can't go on Saturday to Point Park either. I'll be in Annapolis. I really wanted to go!
