Contest!

I came up with the prize sooner than I’d imagined…

In honor of my 100th blog post, I’m having a contest! I love weird search terms used to find my blog. What are your favorite weird search terms from your own blog? Post them in the comments, and then I’ll choose the weirdest. If you win, you get the sweat of my brow (ew) in the form of one personalized rubber stamp/block print (you get the block so that you can print as many as you want) designed and made by Yours Truly. Seriously. I can make stamps. (If this is a lame prize, email me and suggest another). If you want to see my work, go to my other website, Sugar Devil Design, and take a gander at the Chicago Horror Film Festival work (click on “pdf” and download a pdf, since the site itself is really buggy and is due for a major overhaul).

Have fun, everybody! (You’ve got until the Ides of May, or the 15th for you normal types)

[I have not knit for a whole day, mostly because last night I cleaned out my living room, and discovered no less than 4 bags full of unfinished projects, plus assorted yarn ends and patterns. Most of these were under/around the couch, though one was tucked away in the corner, and another was living on the coffee table. My husband is so amazingly patient. I’m going to add to the Super Secret project #2, since I have realized that I have enough yarn for something else, and I’m not really one to wear those colors.]

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

  1. I finally checked mine so I decided to send you what I got FYI. They are pretty boring. First is “weird knitting” which I really so not understand, as you knit far weirder things than I do. The next is “wet chicken tail”, which worries me slightly. The strangest one is “the chickengoddess”, mostly because this either means I am somehow famous enough for prople to actually want information on me or that they’re actually looking for my blog. What is up with that? Or, more frighteningly, that lost souls out there are looking for a deity called the chickengoddess, or maybe that chickens have mastered the skills necessary to hack into their owners networks and try to reach me from their coops. Hmmm l33t ch1xors. How do you feel about chickens in the ether? Me, I’m scared.
