My family and boyfriend always tell me to relax and just lay around, but I can’t. I need to be doing something, especially when I’m watching TV or a movie. Since it’s difficult to write while watching TV, I have a secret habit. It’s a dorky habit. You m
ay laugh when I reveal it.
Promise you won’t laugh?
Are you sure?
Okay, here goes….
I love to knit!
Stop laughing! I know you are! But you’re only laughing because you’ve never tried it. It’s very addictive, and is an awesome way to get some stress out (the repetition of the needles always seem to calm my nerves). My mom taught me a few years ago. She’s an amazing knitter, she can make sweaters and do all this crazy fancy stitch work that I can’t do. I’ve made a few sweaters, but I like wintery outdoor items more. Things like socks, hats, gloves, scarves, and the totally awesome fingerless gloves that I gave all my coworkers for Christmas. These gloves are my favorite project, because I can knit and read at the same time (okay, you’re laughing again!). They are awesome because you can wear them when you’re writing and your hands stay warm.
Take a look…
I made them all year long and stock piled a huge collection. My mom and I had planned to sell them on Etsy, but we never got around to setting up an account. Our procrastination is good for you, because I’m having my very first contest! Woo-hoo! You can have a chance to win some super marvelous writing gloves that I made!
The contest is simple…here’s how you get points:
1 entry slip for each comment you make from now until the end of the contest
2 entry slips if you’re following my
blog or start following it
3 entry slips if someone new to my blog posts in the comments that you told them about the site and they’re reading it because of you
5 entry slips for each time you Tweet about my contest, post the information on your blog, FaceBook or MySpace.
*Please post a link in my comments each time you spread the word, so I can give you the 5 entry slips!
So spread the word! I’ll put all these entries in a hat
and draw he winner on January 1, 2010…what a way to start the new year!
