Thanks everyone who quickly reassured me that blogger is indeed, in most cases, accepting comments on this knit blog.
It was a secret contest. Random number generator on son's calculator picked comment number 8. Hooray Bev! You win. Bev has been a frequent, loyal reader of irisheyes. Go to comment number 8. Click on Bev! She's an amazing knitter. I am offering some prizes for Bev to choose among. A subscription to a knit magazine of her choice or coffee goodies.
Another random thing: I paid it forward in 3 ways. Bianca from Lansinglerland asked for volunteers last fall. I just got round to paying it forward. It was fun! If anyone would like to try this, It is really fun. In the quest to pay if forward, I bought some library books for the unit I work on. Siblings of sick babies have a poor selection of books to keep them busy while they wait out the visit. I've decided to volunteer at my library at the used book desk a bit. I can KNIT while I volunteer.
I have some concerns about Knitting the Family heirloom throw. WHat am I going to show you for the months it will take me to knit it? I really try hard to keep the images Knit related. Do you prefer this?
Random image: Al skating at Millenium park on a random Saturday with her Auntie Deb. Wearing a nice scarf, she knit!
