In other news, I fear that I must engage in some shameless self-promotion. The Winter issue of Interweave Knits is out, and if you look at the "Ravelings" piece at the end of the issue, you may notice that it is written by someone you know ... as in ME! I was so excited that they said they were going to publish my essay, since it's a combination of two of my very favorite things - knitting and writing! Those of you who spent last year reading about my holiday knitting may have heard way too much about it to want to actually read the piece, but don't say I didn't let you know about it ... :-)
And sports fans, guess what? This is my 450th post! You know what that means - I had to go through your guesses for when it would happen, and choose a winner. No one hit the date exactly, but Chris guessed November 17 (three days before today), while Carrie K guessed November 24 (four days after today). So - Chris you are the winner! Congratulations! I'm pretty sure that I have your mailing address, but just in case I can't find it, please send it along to me at: thekittyknitterATverizonDOTnet.
And thanks to all of you for playing along - no one was really too far off the date, which was surprising to me, since I was thinking it might not be until sometime in December.
That's it for tonight - have a good Saturday. I'll be working, but since it's towards the end of my gainful employment, it's worth showing up, don't you think???
