What's moo?

Udderly cool

Dsc06962MOO, there's some more udderly cool stuff going on!!

Heidi has a brand new baby!  Born on Ali's birthday! It's no secret that I think April babies are some of the best.  ; )  It's been nearly 15 years since I brought my last baby home, but I still remember that dreamy, drowsy, cuddly first week -- all warm and fuzzy.  Aw, Heidi, congratulations -- enjoy your new family.

Another April baby -- and one of my favorite west coast bloggers -- is having a birthday today!  Happy Birthday, Celia!!  (What did I say about April's best???)

Dsc07004_2Okay.  Ooops!  That, my friends, is a picture that is 15 pixels wide, not 150 (as intended and like the udderly cool cow).  But look -- you can still *click for big*!  There recently landed two copies of Mason-Dixon Knitting on my doorstep here in America's Dairyland!  One of them, autographed for me by the authors and one of the photographers (very rare, I'm sure), arrived in a bovine-decorated package from a friend in the east.  She had to spill the beans that she was having one signed for me when we were talking one day and I'd casually mentioned the new MDK book that had just arrived in the mail!  ; )

Thank you Ann!

Dsc07004_3(That's better!)  As you may know, April is just a celebratory month around here by nature, with all the birthdays and whatnot, and this year we're celebrating extra-big because Katie returns, right at the end of "the season," from her study stint in the U.K. and the continental tour (I just love to say "continental tour") and just after celebrating her own 21st birthday in Munich.  In honor of the inter- and trans-continental connections of Mason-Dixon, Dairyland, U.K. and Europe, homecomings, birthdays, candles, cake, beer, dishcloth cotton, and my 2.8-lb. loss yesterday, I'm giving away the extra book! (I'd give it away even if I'd gained, but you know, it's worth extra celebration that the jeans aren't cutting off my circulation anymore, even with the birthday cakes, jelly beans and malted milk eggs of the last week!)  Not exactly fragile, I think the package will need some padding, if you get my drift.  It's very simple really, all you need to do is:

1.  To be eligible, send me an email (vknitorious (at) yahoo (dot) com) by 5:00 p.m. CST (I think that's 6:00 in the east, 3:00 in the west, 4:00 in the mountains) on Monday, April 24th, with your name/email/blog (if applicable) and the words "Udderly Cool" in the subject line.

That's all there is to it!  Katie -- my random number generator -- will arrive home Monday night, April 24th, and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday morning!



Yeah. Your edition is very rare indeed. Not one photograph I took actually appears IN the book. LOL! Ann is nuts.


I love your udderly cool cow!


You are such a good cheerleader for fellow bloggers, Vicki. It's that firstborn-ness coming out again.
What a great opportunity this was for Katie.
It is very hard to lose any pounds in chocolate egg month. Well done.


I just LURVE blog contests ... I'll be entering yours (from home this evening) and I already entered Kat's. Fun fun fun!!!


Don't you love the book? I already bought it but I'm waiting for the one I won in the contest to arrive because that one is promised to be signed. But not by the photographer. Damn!


I know all about busy Aprils too. My daughter's birthday is the 11th, bil the 14th, nephew 16th, brother 20th and if Mom was alive her's was the 22nd. I'm loving all these blogging contests. Haven't won any of them but it's fun to play along.


I just looked at pictures of Heidi's new baby a few minutes ago! She is so cute in her hat.


yay for the WW success my sweet little Spaghetti O loving friend! I am going to steal your idea and run a contest once I hit a certain pound mark.


I'm in!!

You have almost made it! Gillian leaves for Australia in early July. *GULP* It is difficult to say it, much less think of what it will be like going five months without seeing her in real live person. Enjoy the homecoming girl!


I love the cow!!!! He is udderly cool. Nice contest; I already have the book and it is so great! Congrats on your daughter coming home! Her adventure sounds like it has been so fantastic and she has such a wonderful mom to be so supportive. You are such a positive person and so whole heartedly enthusiastic of all us bloggers - it is heart warming.


A 2.8 lb. loss -- YEA for you!!!


Yay for the weight loss! I can't claim the same.


Yay! A contest! :-)

Congrats on the weight loss!!
