Now we are one. Hundred.

Guess whose blogiversary is today?


And believe it or not, this is my one hundredth post! I couldn't possibly have planned it this way, seeing as how I can barely plan my outfits in the morning or what I'm having for lunch.

(Do you guys remember Garanimals? Now there's wardrobe planning for you. I wonder what those would look like for big girls? ;-)

Anyway, this is a major milestone for me. Not because I've learned tons of new things about knitting (although I have), and not because I've made so many new friends (although this is absolutely true), but because I never thought, once I started blogging, that I would ever be able to keep it up on a regular basis. I thought for sure I would be kicked off the webrings by the second or third week.

Look at me, guys! I can commit to something! Woo hoo!

To celebrate, I could spend time giving you highlights of the year, or working on an anniversary knit (Laura's brilliant idea, to re-knit one item to see if she could do it better), but I'm not that clever. All I got is yarn.

Did she say yarn?

Yes! My very first contest! Leave a comment between today and midnight Saturday, July 22 (CST), and I will choose a lucky winner with a random number generator to receive two skeins of Claudia's Handpainted fingering weight yarn in Purple Midnight. I don't have my own picture, but trust me, the colors are truly breathtaking.

Good luck!!

I really, really hope I win the skines. If I should be so lucky to win, I plan on donating the skines to charity, because there are other people out there who could use the skynes more than I could. There's nothing more satisfying than the look on a child's face when he (or she) opens up a present and discovers a pile of skiynes. What joy!

When I saw the post title, I thought for sure you were talking about the outdoors temperature!! I'm sure that's almost 100 too. :( This 100 is much much better though. I would've wished you huge congrats even if there wasn't yarn at stake. Pretty yarn too. Pick me, pick me!! :)

Happy blogversary! I used to love Garanimals. I only ever had 1 shirt and 1 pair of pants though. They didn't sell them in the Bronx!

Great job on your blog. I really enjoy reading it. Maybe I should post and say that then, huh? Well, here it is. :)

Happy Day! I can understand about missing Garanimals. I recently added a pair or brown pants to my standard navy-black-khaki rotation and it completely threw off the shirt balance.

Happy Blogiversary!!! And it's too cool that it coincides with your 100th post! There's some knitterly karma for you!

And I definitely remember Garanimals, and secretly wish they made them for adults! I am not so good with putting things together and end up either looking like a fashion disaster or all in black.

Yay for you! Happy 100 posts! That is so cool!

BTW, did you get an email from my yahoo account a week or so ago? I think messages from my yahoo account are not regularly arriving at their destinations.

Happy Blogiversary! I'm just checking in on the Amazing Lace pit stop -- your trellis stole WILL be lovely, whenever you finish it. Great color!

Hey baby! (and blogging guardian angel) Congrats on the anniversary AND 100! (I can't believe I hit 100 before you.)

Anyway, DON'T sign me up for sock yarn. Can't handle another hobby, though others might think I need a new hobby other than the one(s) I currently have. ;)

I'ts time to de-lurk.. I have been reading you for a while. Happy 100!

Happy blogiversary! How're you holdin' up? Or maybe I shouldn't ask. Hmmm... Do count me in for the contest! Yaayyyy! Olga's having a contest, Olga's having a contest...

Happy one-year-old blog! I read your blog often as I too am currently residing in the state of Texas, finding myself sweating profusingly while knitting sweaters that I may never get to wear! So hey--bring on the sock yarn, I say!

Thanks for your blog, and for the fun contest.

Wow--how'd you manage THAT? I agree that a coinciding blogiversary and 100th post is definitely knitterly karma shining on you. Congratulations!

Yay! I like sock yarn! Am I too late?
