I love listening to knitting podcasts and last December I won a book by partcipating in a listener poll on the Unwound Podcast.
The host of the show, Kelli, poses a listener poll on each podcast and picks a random winner from those who partcipate. Each winner then selects a book to from any of those she has mentioned on her show and I chose "One Skein Wonders: 101 Yarn Shop Favorites" She also asks each winner to record a book review to include on the next podcast and so my funny, nasel-y voice can be heard on the Dec. 30th podcast (ugh, do I really sound like that??)!
The first day of the New Year was perfect for a nap.
And I slept through most of the Rose Bowl game. Luckily I didn't unravel my first project of '07, a red scarf for the Red Scarf Project.
