The First (and last) KnitRunRepeat Pennant-Guessing Contest

Sometimes I have the best ideas when I’m out walking.

If I’d been thinking properly, I’d have dreamed up the idea of a contest in the earlier post. Ah, well. Thinking has never been my strong suit.

At any rate, if you’ve been reading this blog or the old one for any length of time, it shouldn’t take you too long to figure out which pennants we’re going to hang in our dorm room. Leave a comment with your guess; I’ll toss all the correct guesses in an empty Sugar-Free Cool Whip container and choose a winner.

Also – and this is important in determining which prize I send you – in your comment, tell me if you are a knitter or not. I’ll announce the winner Saturday morning.

Absolutely no entry fee required – c’mon, what’ve you got to lose? Tell your friends! One guess per person, please. Let’s fill up those comments. Let me know you’re out there! What other enthusiastic platitudes can I throw up here?!?!?!?!?

I think ws got it in the first comment - OSU, WVU, Yankees (definitely not my favourite baseball team), Celtics, and Colts.

I am a knitter.

I did come up with the same list as the other two commenters.

WVU, OSU, Colts, Celtics and Yankees (Go Yankees!) I myself only watch baseball.

And I am a knitter.

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
