Update and a contest!!! ( You may already be a winner!)

Has it really been a month? Here's a quick update....

-I was assassinated! Killed in round one of sock wars, by a very pretty pair of socks from Suzy H. who may very well still be standing.

- I seem to have injured the camera, it's not dead yet, but doesn't feel like taking any pictures right now. ( note the pictureless blog post)

- Finished my husbands Austerman Step socks... and he wore them on our anniversary.

- Finished my Cherry Tree Hill socks for the Susan Koman foundation. ( Kat, our staff association has a fund raiser each year and then donates the money to the foundation.. so I don't know how you can donate knitted items.... maybe the knit guild would be interested in doing a raffle?)

- Started Austerman Step socks for myownself.

-Started a crazy sideways knit baby sweater for the 9,387th person in my life to have a baby this year ( kidding, but there are a bunch.)

-Started the Mason Dixon baby kimono for the 9388th person in my life to have a baby this year.

- Started on my Christmas knitting. ( Go me!)

- Finished sleeve one for Rogue. ( I want to wear this so I need to finish it soon!)

- Made a list for Kathy of all my projects on the needles right now and it's frightening. seriously, very long. The only thing that makes it less scary is that my recently completed list is longer.

- DH and I went to see David Sedaris for our anniversary and he not only signed my books ( "I wish you were MY librarian") he also gave us an anniversary present!!!!!!

- So since I'm over flowing with yarn and feeling charitable, I'll send a prize of the fibery sort to the first person who can guess what David Sedaris gave me on my anniversary! Please leave your guesses in the comments.

Hey!
I'm a Suzie H in sock wars!!! Who'da thunk there'd be more than one? What're the odds?

I think he gave you a condom. Or a bookmark. Or a kiss.

I do get three guesses, right?

(oh, wait, my other thought was a preview copy of the animal fable book?)

I'm so sorry to hear you were assinated. Whatta bummer.

When do we get to find out what he gave you? He's a apparently very camera shy so I'm pretty sure it's not a photo of him. Do we get anything if we make a list of things he definitely did not give you?

I am so curious to hear what you got from David Sedaris! I love him.
A book would be so obvious.
Gum? Paperclip? Flashlight?

I went to see David Sedaris at Barnes & Noble and listened to him talk but could only see the back of the top of his head, which was more expresive than you would think.

When I think of objects associated with David Sedaris, I immediately think of cigarettes and taxidermy. I hope to God that he didn't give you any taxidermy, so my guesses are a cigarette, some Halloween candy, or a certain book on mental illness. :)

Well - you've definitely been busy, that's for sure! ;) Hm, now, let me guess: A signed copy of his latest book?

Hi, thanks for the compliment on my alphabet blanket! I seriously considered not knitting the triangles, but since it is for the first grandchild of the family...I'd never hear the end of it from my mom. ;)
