Happy blogiversary! I love the colors in your Monkey socks and your Leaflings socks look fabulous, even if they came out too large! Great job for your first heel and gusset (I have yet to do my first--I'm still trying to do a short row heel!). Thanks for having a contest.

To the top of the world,
Bring some sock yarn and needles,
With me to watch the sky.

Just flies, oh, the flies,
But knitting makes me happy all day!

I always enjoy visiting new blogs and have added yours to my favorites list. It seems that we have many things in common: STR & SAM5 among them. My daughter almost ended up in Alaska for college, and I would have loved being able to visit. Maybe someday, although I won't be doing it via a cruise ship. I don't do boats!

Happy blogiversary!

I'm a fellow Yahoo socknitter in Canada and I love your socks.

I have a favour to ask all the people who live further north than me and that is, next time you see the Northern Lights, could you please think of me? I've never seen them although it is my dream to do so one day, so until then, I try to live vicariously.

Happy, Happy 1st Blogiversary! I hope it was a happy first year and your blog continues to bring you great joy! I love the Leafling socks you knitted. The pattern and colorway are a perfect fit for each other. :-)
