Taking on the "Way Back Machine" Challenge

KitKatKnit is having a contest that was just too good to skip, but maybe a little kismet-ish too:

Basically you go back to one year ago today and post about what you were knitting back then.

As you all know, I am not the most daily of bloggers. I call it my sine-wave blogging cycle. There are times I will regale you with daily musings, then a week goes by and I'm all "move along, nothing to see here." So the little voice that makes me partake of contests to begin with said, "If yee posted on the 8th, do it!" (Yep, my voice was being extra weird this morning.)

Low and behold, I did indeed post on November 8, 2006. (ETA, oopsie, thanks, Bezzie in my head it made sense... :))

I had just finished my father's scarf, and was barely making his birthday deadline...and had begun my constant winter companion:

Which became:

Pattern: One Row Hand Spun Scarf

OMG! That is snow!!! In Seattle! At the END of November...let's see if history repeats itself :).

To clarify about the fine print regarding the contest? Cartoon what? I just remember eating far too sugary cereal and watching the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show ("Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!"). Mr. Peabody and his boy, Sherman, were not as funny to me then as say 'Fractured Fairy Tales.' But what can I say, I was um, young and stuff. Maybe it was the speed of the narration...English is my second language after all.

Dude, I am confused. 2007? You mean 2006 right? Ah yes, if I click, you did mean 2006. This contest might be too much for my feeble brain!

That's a cool contest! What a clever idea. I'm amazed at the cleverness of my fellow knitbloggers. Far cleverer than I!

I couldn't knit if my life depended on it, but I do remember the snow! We built a snow woman in the yard, one of the snows, not sure which one. I was shocked we got it more than once, and the tiem w/ the ice was horrid because driving was basically like a demolition derby.
