Contest to Celebrate!

I really needed to post a Thank You to my SP Twistedknitster.blogspot.com for his caring and generosity over the past few months.... I had intended to fully picture the gifted yarn and my projects...
Something happened today, something wonderful! Hillard communitcated with me that he wanted to go to McDonalds! He brought me to the front door and signed the word please and the sign for Mcdonalds ( i think) and then spoke the words! I really couldn't understand him.... Its hard to understand him.... But we got in the car and I drove to Mcdonalds and he screamed out YES ! PLEASE! and did the signs for those words over and over!

We have to celebrate with a contest :)
Three different Questions: answer all three get your name put in the bowl 3 times....

1. If there was a hurricane coming and you could only pack three things; entertainment, food, and drink....what would these items be?

2. If you could play poker with three famous people (dead or alive) who would they be?

3. Whats your 3 favorite sock yarns? (not a sock knitter? whats your 3 favorite yarns?)


Blogger Betty said...

That is wonderful news regarding Hillard!

1. iPod, chocolate, coffee

2. God, paternal grandfather, Johnny Depp

3. I guess I don't really knit socks. I generally like any yarns by Rowan, Louet, and Karabella.

First off - congratulations! Every little step is a huge accomplishment. And I have to say -just another proof all kids are the same - they all love McDonalds! :)

Now for your supercool questions:
1)Settlers of Catan (a really great board game), chocolate (it keeps, doesn't take a lot of space, and makes you happy), diet coke (it's always diet coke!)

2)Henrik Wergeland, Edward Norton, my grandmother (she's not soo famous, but she rocks!)

3) I have yet to knit socks, so I'll give you my favourites so far: Kauni Effekt yarn, Artyarn supermerino and STR yarn (but not yet tried it for socks.. LOL)
