A Huge Post! and a Contest!

Where to begin? I have been very busy back at Summer School. Most of my free time has been spent working on my Clapotis...which should be done in the next few days! I am addicted!

I finished my Socapalooza Socks using Scarlet Fleece yarn in Kiwi and a Twin Rib pattern.

We went to 7-11 and bought Squishees and Krusty-O's (which are basically Froot Loops).

I met up with Robyn, Valerie and Alyson recently (Phoebe and Chris are not pictured). Speaking of Robyn, I tried the Canadian Oreos. They were ok...I still like the American version better!

Also! I finished my Larger than Life Bag complete with lining....here is a picture:

Speaking of Harry Potter, here is the headline from a local free newspaper:

That's about it for now....tomorrow is my Blogiversary and I have a doctor appointment, so I might not post (depends on the results I get), but I am running a contest! In what city was I born?

Clues:

1. an independent city in the U.S. Commonwealth of Virginia
2. bounded on the north and east by the Rappahannock River; across the river is Stafford County; and is bounded on the south and west by Spotsylvania County.
3. daily newspaper is the Free Lance-Star


Email the answer to purlygirl75 at gmail dot com. I will be giving away some sock yarn...one to the first person with a correct answer and one to the person whose name is pulled from a hat! Deadline is July 22 at noon (EST).


And finally, a pic of Buster!

I LOVE your crocheted bag. The colors are so bright and eye-catching. The fabric inside just sends the whole bag over the edge for me. Golly, let me go wipe up my drool.

Love the pic of Buster too! He's a Golden, isn't he? The floppy ears always gives their breed away, I think. I have a 4-year-old that I spoil rotten.
