Goodbye, Hello & a contest!

Goodbye 2008!

Hello 2009! Last night we took it easy – Chinese take-out, gave Lorelai a bath, played some Wii Fit (I rock at Super Hula Hoop! and we unlocked a Bubble game!) watched “Death Race” (which delivers as it promises, even in the first 10 minutes!) and saw the New Year in. Promptly I tore into my new “Page-A-Day” calendars:
The year shows promises of being cute and amusing (observant? witty? sarcastic?)!

Yesterday I was trying to organize a bit. I have had my sock yarns in two separate boxes for a while now and in trying to make space on the bookshelves for more books, decided I would consolidate the sock yarn to an under the bed-style box. (41 quart size) I tried to arrange the yarns in a sort of color spectrum, which didn’t quite work. I also found 5 sock WIPs that I want to take care of this year. I’ve got quite a bit of yarn stuffed into that box, so I thought maybe it would be interesting to have a contest. Here are photos of the box:

I’ve got an extra copy of Alt Fiber to give away! To win it, take a guess at this – How many skeins are in the box? I haven’t even counted myself yet! Leave your answer in the comments and on Sunday, January 4, I’ll announce the winner πŸ™‚

  1. Thatsalotta sock yarn! I’m sure I have at least as much, but I have mine stashed in small quantities throughout the craft room. It helps keep me in denial about how much I have. :-)I’m going to guess 73 skeins…

  2. My my that’s quite a nice mix of yarns. My guess….65.Gotta love Wii Fit! We haven’t mastered the bubble game yet, but have come oh so close a few times.All the best of the new year to you.
