Baby Elliott, of course!

Blankie 3

The infamous (because the yarn drove me crazy) baby blankie to match Elliott’s cute hooded sweater was finally completed and sent to Ontario to be cuddled by my adorable nephew.

Someone here wanted me to keep it.

Before you read this next bit, I swear that I have never done a chain letter or forwarded one of those “delete this at your peril” emails, even if they would cure some ailing nun. Just sayin’.

Jennifer sent this to me:

Aw-w-w. That made me feel good. Especially because her blog makes my day!

She also tagged me for the for the 7 Random Things meme.

“Here are the rules, and they must be posted to your blog. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog and also so they can look at your blog and not tag the same people all over again!”

Here are my random things, in random order:

1. I once rode a horse on a beach on South Padre Island in Texas.
2. I know how to catch frogs. And keep them alive.
3. I climbed Mt. Katahdin in Maine, and crossed between the peaks on Knife’s Edge.
4. I won’t do that again.
5. I can remember the scientific names for plants and bones, but not the names of people I met five minutes ago.
6. Most of the time, my hair is wet underneath. Including on my wedding day.
7. Drumroll… I accidentally stabbed the Minister of Justice all the way through his hand with a knitting needle. True story. And he didn’t swear.

Now, I need to pass on the award and the meme, and since many people have already received these, I’m just going to choose a few people who have blogs that meant a great deal to me for some random reason, and have therefore made my day!

1. Skrilla Knits – because she works at WEBS , and mentions WEBS, and I love WEBS. So it makes me happy.
2. String or Nothing – because a long time ago, she mentioned that her family was playing Killer Bunnies , and it intrigued me enough that I bought the game. It rekindled a family love for board games, and we’ve had many happy hours of playing Killer Bunnies since, and have expanded to other games.
3. Angry Chicken – because she makes everything look so beautiful that I want to live in the Angry Chicken house.
4. Fat Free Vegan – because she has been a lifesaver for a family that includes a vegan, a non-dairy person, and a vegetarian. And I bet she knits.
5. Adam Knits! – just because I love his energy & awesome photos.
