Welcome! (and happy Blogiversary to me…oh and a contest…)

ETA: I’m enjoying your stories so much I’ve decided to leave this up for another day – you have until Midnight Tuesday (EST) to leave a comment/story to be entered in the drawing. (I’m also too exhausted to write a good post – I was up ’til 3am yesterday trying to get my comments to email to me…then found out that WP won’t email comments that you leave yourself…duh!)

Welcome to the new JessaLu Knits! I decided to move to a shorter url and, since I was moving anyway, to begin using WordPress as my blogging platform. I love Serendipity but it has its limitations. Those of you who link to me, my new link is http://www.jessaluknits.com (see how easy that is? I’m just happy I don’t have to remember how to spell ‘courtesans’ anymore *g*). ;o)

So, as I mentioned, it is my blogiversary! I’ve been doing this for two years now, can you believe it? As they say, time flies when you’re having fun ;o) I’m so glad I started doing this in February 2005. It has brought me great joy and great friends (who can also be great enablers) and it has challenged me to ‘up the ante’ with my knitting. I see the beautiful work that you all do and it motivates me to do better. I’d like to thank you all for your readership and your friendship over the past two years – and I’m looking forward to many more!

To celebrate this momentous occasion I decided to have a contest – and since it’s my blog and I like to be amused I decided to pull out my favorite meme from long ago (I don’t remember where I saw this last year, I apologize for my faulty memory):

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don’t speak often, please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL MEMORY OF YOU AND ME. It can be anything you want–good or bad–BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you’re finished, post this on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON’T ACTUALLY remember about you.

Whomever leaves a comment (THOSE LEFT WITH a fictional memory will be entered twice) will get their name put into a hat for either a skein of sock yarn or a hank ‘o roving – winners choice :o) What are you waiting for? I can’t wait to see what you ‘remember’ about me!

p.s. If you post this on your blog, let me know!

p.p.s I’m still adding stuff to this new place – I’m sorry for the buttons and links that are still missing…

p.p.p.s. You also don’t have to change your RSS feed bookmarks – Feedburner rocks!
