Oh, we look fondly back at the Frappr! craze. That's sooooooo last month....innit?! Can you believe how quickly that rose and died? But it DIDN'T die ... at least not to me. I'm still going around and finding new ones once in a while and adding my name and pictures. I try to spice it up a bit by adding crazy pictures sometimes. And I've been checking my map. It sat stagnant for weeks, but all of a sudden lately I've had a few new pins. Very much fun.
One from Wales: Hi, Margaret!
One from Austria: Hi, Angie!
There's Maryann from Garner, NC, and Chris from Minneapolis and Nicole from Alexandria, VA.
South Dakotah came through! I knew there must be somebody up there. (now we need to work on North Dakotah, Gail!)
And Montana was very lonely, so Carrie put a pin in from there when she went to visit her in-laws in Hamilton. Then Shannon from Helena joined her.
-------------Some work was done around here yesterday. It was horribly slow, plodding work that didn't make me feel terribly accomplished at the end of it. But it made for some ideas for what to get the person who has everything. Perfect for any occasion! Unfortunately, that is really all I can say. Use your most unpuritanical imagination. -------------------------
And I happily COMPLETED my CEUs, with possibly two to spare. Depending on which person at headquarters I spoke with last week, I needed either four or six more points. So I did six just in case.
I feel I owe it to my readers who reported to me that they did red scarves, so I plan to, very soon, comb through the comments and my emails and try to make a list. I am so warmed by all the response and by the fact that people remembered to come back and tell me how many they did. I've also written the coordinator of the program who commented on the blog when I first blogged about it, and asked her if she will let me know the final tally of scarves received. This won't reflect the ones we are directly responsible for in knitblogland, but I think it would be fun to know anyway. Imagine what we could have done if we'd had more notice! Dave said: Wouldn't it be cool to see all the recipients in a group picture, like in a football field, wearing their red scarves? Of course I know that would not be practical, but yeah, wouldn't it be cool?
