After much contemplation, I have decided that the winner of my little give away is... Melissa, my fellow doula and birth advocate. I was really flattered and gratified to get all the positive feedback from many of you. I know most of you thought I was nuts (and you may be right) but you were good sports and played along.I thank you for that.
Melissa is the only one of the posters who I don't actually know IRL (in real life, for those of you who dont do internet-speak) so I thought it was really cool that she participated and shared some of her interests as well! Plus she wins through sheer numbers- she left me three separate comments :)
To the anonymous poster with a special needs child- I would love if you got in touch with me privately. My email address is in my profile. I am always looking to meet new people in the SN world.
So Melissa, I have yet to check out your blog but I will, and I will also be in touch in the next week or so about finding a cute knitting project for you or your kiddos. Right now I am in knitting limbo because one is not allowed to knit during the Nine Days, a period of mourning we (Orthodox Jews, that is) now find ourselves in. I have to say, that I of all the restrictions of this time,and there are many (no swimming, doing laundry, eating meat, drinking alcohol, knitting, listening to music, getting haircuts), knitting is actually the thing I miss the most. I am so used to being busy with my hands that I really don't know what to do with myself at times.
Starting Wednesday though I will be back with my clicking needles. In fact I already have a few projects lined up to keep me busy in Israel...speaking of which, packing starts tomorrow. Wish me luck!
