Anniversary (Contest #5)

For a while, I wasn’t sure what date to use for my blogiversary. Several dates stood out in my website’s timeline. Should I pick:

Did you know Atlantic Books at the MOA is holding a going-out-of-business sale (most things are discounted 40%)? I stopped by yesterday and the shelves [...]

Keep your paws clean

Two quick things before paw business: The “What’s in a color?” (Contest #5) Winner will be posted tomorrow! And, several people asked about the yarn I’m using for the Yarrow Ribbed socks.
