  4. Beautiful prize!

    I read your post about wondering if you should have more than one kid. When I was pregnant with my second son I was so worried that my eldest would not get the same amount of love and care that I previously was able to give him. I think that having a sibling has been awesome for him. They fight now and then, but they are also great friends and playmates. My love has not diminished at all, my heart has grown so that there is an amazing amount of love for both kids. You might want to consider just going for it and seeing what happens.

  7. Oh I love the Smooshy! I had a chance to hold and admire it for the first time last week.

    Maybe if I win, I can knit it into a hat for the orphans. If you'd like to knit a hat for a great cause, stop by my blog for the details!

    What a great contest!

  54. Hey, all you knitters. I am participating in Sock Wars III and waiting for my demise. My target seems to be avoiding her mailbox -- clinging to life by a thread, but sooner or later, she will have to go there :-). Anyway, I was surfing and found the WiKnit site and thought WiKnot and here I am. Hope I win, as I'm suffering from post-knitem depression right now.

  55. What a great prize! Love your blog...
