It was like my whole blog flashed before my eyes!
A big chunk of it did! Weirdness. I subscribe to all of my own blog feeds, mainly to keep an eye on if and when they're updated. This afternoon I logged on to see that one of my feeds in Bloglines had 200 unread posts! There were many (but not all) from my first year of blogging -- and I have to say, it was kind of cool seeing it that way..

The lame-o first post.
The results of a quiz for my second post (that didn't take long!).
My first knit-along -- Audrey! In Rowan Calmer!! Oh, the angst. I recall being empowered by Bonne Marie to finally rip that darn thing, as it was COMPLETELY the wrong shape and type of sweater for my body... but, oh, that cute neckline, the Vespa dreams. Ciao, Audrey.
The Calmer as it transformed into the still unfinished Alice Starmore-designed Cromarty.
St. Brigid! Meatheads! Secret Pals! Thrummed Mittens!
My first contest when I celebrated my first birthday on the blog. That was a fun one!
The girls and their various attempts at knitting (some successful, some not).
My baby sister's first pregnancy.
My first colorwork -- North Star Mittens! Katie still wears those -- took them with her to England, even -- and gets lots of compliments, and loves telling people that her mummy made them! Yay!
A 14" red-haired ponytail donated to Locks of Love.
Plumbing repairs! Remodeling! Gardening!
The lovely Miss Dashwood... and a Mister... and Opptuna.
Saying good bye to Salem Slim Light 100s.
The Cold Turkey Chicken Viking Hat!
My first Midwest Masters Seminar -- classes with Lizbeth Upitis, Joyce Williams, and Lily Chin.

I've often thought about publishing the blog in book form at some point -- maybe not every post, but many... most, some, more than a few. I printed and bound all the entries I wrote when Michael was in the hospital after his accident, which he loved -- that was a lot of work, but there are easier ways now.
I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to post yet of my Log Cabin Socks; I think the first may be the FO pic! I'm working on fighting off a cold, instead, so I'm not sufferin' through the entire Sister Weekend -- leaving ASAP (noon-ish) tomorrow!
