Happy New Year 2009!!! And A New Contest!!!

I am so looking forward to this brand new year. Are you? I don't have anything super special planned for 2009, no resolutions to declare but I just feel an electricity in the air about the new year.
So to celebrate 2009 I am having a contest!!! Yeah! Starting today and ending on Jan 31 anyone joining my followers will have a random number chance of winning a sweet prize. Prize to be announced soon. Actually I will have the winner give me their choice of 3 prizes.
The contest will include everyone that is a follower of mine not just the new ones. So pass the word around about the contest.
Now I hope that each and every one of you have a wonderful New Years Eve and New Years Day and that you DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE, EVER. Have a good time but be a responsible partier.
Now I'm off to read emails and to knit on that scarf.

Eric and my bear Ericarrrrrggghhh

Here is my grandson, Eric, and the build a bear he made me for Christmas! She's a pirate so I named her Ericaarrggghh you know as in "Argh matey, let's loot and pillage that ship!" or something like that. lol He is the one I am making the black and white scarf for. He is starting culinary school in San Francisco the first week of Jan 2009. So cool. I saw his first school book today. It has lots of cool stuff in it. I told him I'd help him study for all his tests!
The scarf is going well. I'm about half way done with it.
