Cpurl Speaks!

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.

That Red Scarf is looking good...my red yarn should arrive in the mail this week so I can join you.

Hee! Congrats! Too cool! I'm going to have to download the PC when the boys aren't around to interrupt me!

Happy New Year! I count you as one of the cool things I found in 2006. I'm blessed to have you as a "friend".

Congrats on the podcast!

That's so cool that you won! I'll have to download that when I get home and check it out. (I always hated my recorded voice - it sounds so low.)

That blue scarf you made for a friend's mom is gorgeous! It looks so soft and I love the stitch pattern.

And the Gangsta Kitties vs. Baby Jesus - Bwah hahahaha!

Nice review on the podcast! Way to go!!! The book sounds good, now get busy on those one skeins!

Oooh, cute kitty!

One Skein Wonders looks fabulous, I really covet that book.

Yes, I'm pathetic. I look at other knitters' blogs because there are kitty pictures and I don't have a kitty.

The scarf looks great too. Now's the time to be knitting red stuff! Once I'm done with the baby sweater, I'll hurry and get some red yarn.

I heard you! I heard you! I thought you were awesome!!

I'd be so nervous I'd be giggling and then no one would know what I was saying! :)
