Here's our Page

Miriam was kind enough to get a copy of "our" page.

This is what everybody will be looking at for 31 days in 2007.

I am MS January

OK - you know all about the whole 15 minutes of fame that we are all entitled to? Well, mine is finally here. You may remember this post. If you go here and visit the page for January (sorry, couldn't figure out how to get a direct link) you can see our picture.

I'm the one wearing orange, Miriam is in jeans - please, if you are feeling kind, let her know that she looks GREAT, as she was hinting about photoshopping herself and silly stuff like that, and Dave (who, I think, is the only man in the calendar) is wearing the knitted hat.

Yes, I know I should update and post more and respond to the whole tagging thing from Miriam but right now I just had to share.

Good News, Bad News and GREAT NEWS

In Order :

I finished my Sock Wars sock and they are now on their way to my victim. Sorry for the bad photo but it was late and I was tired. They look MUCH better in person.

This was at the Post Office when my brother posted the parcel.

I am now officially out of Sock Wars. I am a bit sad but the socks are WONDERFUL, they fit BEAUTIFULLY, and the sweets are liquorice – the salty Dutch kind – I LOVE that stuff.

Now – the GREAT NEWS – I won a runner-up prize in the KNITTY calendar contest. All confidential about the pic right now, but I had to share with you. Miriam (whose husband did the photography) has already blogged about it. Now I just need to get them a high-res version, send them my snail mail, and they’ll send me STUFF! This is SO AMAZING – I don’t usually win competitions, and considering that life has been quite stressful lately, this is a welcome break.
