Happy Blogiversary Laurie! So glad to know you and call you friend! Happy New Year to you filled with much knitting, spinning fiber fun!


Oh, I forgot...the socks turned out wonderfully. Love the color!


What better way to start out a new year than with a glow-in-the-dark sheep.


Excellent start to some thoughtful spinning, I have yet to plan like that with mine.

A very Happy New Year to you and Mr. E as well!


I love the new socks. Happy Blogiversary and Happy New Year!


Happy New Year and happy blogiversary. Are you sure it's only been two years? Strange, it seems like I've known you longer than that...

Happy New Year, Happy Blogiversary, and every possible wish for better treatment from 2007 than 2006 gave both you and Mr. E. (Except for the part where I got to meet you for real. I wouldn't trade that for the world)


Happy New Year! Happy Blogiversary! I, for one, am so glad you're here.

(And that we got out of this one alive.... Never was I so happy to see a year end!)


I just love reading about the changes to your planning/swatching around your spinning -- it was a class that continue to inspire positive changes. Happy Blogiversary -- it's been a wonderful ride - more to come in 2007!

Happy New Year, Laurie! Happy Blogiversary too. Good for you for swatching. It's always enlightening as a spinner. Swatching as a mere knitter, not so much.


I love the glow in the dark sheep! And forward progress with spinning must be a great feeling. I'm not there yet, though.
Happy New Year!


Happy Blogiversary and Happy New Year, E! I'm glad to know ya. Nice sheep. :D


Happy New Year. I like the spin to a purpose idea. That gray is lovely.


happy new year and happy blogversary.

i for one am thankful that in 2006 i got to meet you.


Happy Blogiversary! It's been wonderful getting to know you :-)!


Happy Blogaversary!!! We share the same day!


Just think...in a few days we can have a New Years hug! Having you for a friend is one of the best things to come from blogging. Congrats on 2 years! May 2007 be a grand year for you and Mr. E!


Congrats and happy new year!

Re spinning for purpose - did you see http://www.abbysyarns.com/wordpress/?p=19 ?


Happy New Year and 2nd Blogoversary! I have to agree with Claudia -- glow in the dark sheep make an excellent start for the new year!


Happy New Year, and Happy Blogiversary! And glow in the dark sheep, that is very cool.


Happy New Year AND Bloggyversary! May 2007 be filled with not one single broken bone. (for your family members that is)


I love blues and greens too!! Happy new year!!!!!!!!!


The socks are gorgeous -- I wouldn't take them off, either. Best wishes for the new year. Keep all those bones and attached parts in one piece, 'kay?

Wait, did you say that they DIDN'T run out of yarn?! You modified the pattern and DIDN'T run out of yarn. Crazy knitting world.


nice socks! very nice indeed ! and you had enough yarn?! applause.
You're spinning and swatching from it?. Now I am totally impressed. wow. more applause.
May 2007 be filled with joy for you and your family.


Happy New Year, Laurie! You are a truly remarkable human being who has enriched my life tremendously with your wit, your humor, and your unique perspective on the world.

Can I have those socks?


Yes, yes, knitting and spinning is all well and good, but:

Glow-in-the-dark sheep! Yay!


Happy New Year, Laurie! Hoping that you and Mr. E have a better year this year.


I have to echo Norma here: ONLY two years?! Can't be! I've known you way longer than that! Hugs to you both and my wishes for a healthy, happy, accident-free new year filled with much wool.

Happy Blogiversary Laurie! I do so enjoy the community we share, and count you among my friends :)
As for purpose filled spinning---not sure I'm ready for that quite yet. There's just so much more to learn before I try to control it all. Keep us posted on how it's working for you.


Happy Blogiversary lady. I'm glad you're here.


This little world of ours is a wonderful place, isn't it? All the better with you in it, ya know.

Happy blogiversary dear.


Happy Blogiversary and New Years. Love the socks and the sheep is too cute!

Huzzah for swatching and sampling! I definitely find that actually doing the swatches is the only way to know how the fabric will drape and feel, and I'm always glad to have done it; in fact, I always make sure, when it's a big project, that I have plenty of extra fiber exactly for that purpose.

Thank you for your comment on my blog -- that was an especially fun project, because it's yarn for someone else to knit. If I had really been going the distance, I realized later, I'd have sent her the samples, and had her swatch. But I was too eager to get her the yarn itself, in time for her to start her holiday knitting. ;-)


Happy blogiversary! Blogging's a great hobby, ain't it? I'm glad you're part of it.

And that swatching? I love watching an analytical mind glom on to the joys that come from sampling and planning. I look forward to your results.


Happy blogiversary!! Gorgeous oceany socks. And I LOVE the glow in the dark sheep!
