Prizes! Winning! Anniversary Celebrations!

Today marks our First Blogiversary. One year of endless knitting chatter - with a mix of kids, husbands, complaints and life as we know it.

We wanted to do a couple of things in honor of our year of blogging.

We first both wanted to share our favorite posts of the year. We definitely both have grown as writers (and knitters, and mothers) but it's also fun to look back at some of the good stuff.

T. favorites include:

- her youngest's first birthday party

- her oldest's fourth birthday

- remembering her grandma

J's favorites include:

- the Little People series, to be continued




Next, we have a few questions to ask our readers. The person who has the most correct responses will get a fabulous prize. For our knitting friends, it'll likely be of the yarn variety; for our non-knitting friends (hi Mom), it'll be a knit dishcloth. So if you've been reading along for the last year you should be able to figure most of these out.

1. What happened to T.'s Mystery Stole?
a. It's a UFO.
b. It's a beautiful piece that she wears often.
c. It's frogged.
d. Who cares? When does the next Mystery Stole start?

2. How many pairs of socks did J. knit for Christmas?
a. None. J. hates knitting socks.
b. 2
c. 52 pairs - take the plunge baby.
d. 14, thank you very much.

3. T. refers to her kids as....
a. Thing 1 and thing 2
b. Stinky and Punky
c. Boy 1 and Boy 2
d. Does it really matter? What about some yarn talk?

4. What did J. make her dude for their 7th anniversary.
a. Nothing - everything makes him "too hot"
b. Something - but we don't want to know the details.
c. A lovely blue scarf in alpaca
d. Some Earl Grey Socks.

5. What did T. do with her finished Hanami?
a. She gave it to her sister.
b. She gave it to J.
c. She gave it to herself.
d. What finished Hanami? T. never finishes anything.

6. How many kids does J. have?
a. One little Princess.
b. One little Prince.
c. One little Princess and one that's incubating.
d. Kids? What kids?

7. How many objects have fit T.'s frog pond?
a. One
b. Five
c. Ten
d. What's a frog pond?

8. What do T. and J. do to make the money to buy the yarn?
a. Work in Martha's test kitchen
b. Raise sheep
c. Pretend their pharmacists while lurking on Ravelry when they're not knitting on lunch break
d. They married rich men and just sit around in fancy outfits, wearing pearls and drinking Singapore Slings

9. What yarn does T. liken to crack?

c. Seasilk
d. Crafter's cotton

10. What are our real names?
