Dear Kay,
Hey–I just remembered that today is our anniversary: three years of writing our little blawg together. A grand total of 598 entries, 12,792 comments, and 64,012 miles of yarn knitted.
Clink! Cool beverages for everybody! My treat–really! Thanks, y’all, for putting up with this mess.
Honestly, we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled blabbing as soon as Kay stops reading that damn Matisse book, and as soon as I finish painting the porch chairs. Which may just kill me.
Love,
Ann
PS The knitalong continues to amaze and amuse! Kudos to all you intrepid log cabiners and bibbymakers, you dishclothists and ninacrankers. If you haven’t seen the goings on at the knitalong, jump in right here. O! It’s a beautiful thing!
PSS And no, I didn’t make that cake, though I wish I had. This cake is the Second Grade Class Play Cast Party Cake. The play was Peter and the Blue Witch Baby, so of course the cake required a spray-painted blue baby.

  1. Mazel Tov!!

  2. Hmmm, it’s 11 pm on the west coast and there are no comments yet so you must have just posted. You are up late (or early). Painting the chairs in the cooler night air? How goes it with the bluebirds? I’m enjoying the saga.

  3. Happy Birthday!

  4. I thought the two smaller cakes represented Ann and Kay, and the blue baby was eating the boxy thing which represented the blog, and I was so confused, and then I read the entry. Oh, good. I don’t have to figure out what the blue baby is.
    Please don’t do this to me again before I have my coffee!

  5. Congrats to you both! And what a cake!!! Let’s toast to more entries, more yarn, and more books with fab patterns!

  6. Thanks for the best blog there is.
    And I’m really really glad you explained about the cake.

  11. Wow, three years, one book, one blog and a knit-a-long, must be a record.
    The blue baby is a bit scary to me!!

  12. Happy Blog Day!And thanks!

  13. Is it just me, or do the black and white M&M’s on the side of the cake look like a charted knitting pattern? Happy anniversary Ann and Kay!

  14. Wow, congratulations! I should be so lucky to have a cake like that for my anniversary!

  15. Happy Anniversary!! I’m a newer reader, oh how much I’ve missed!

  16. Happy Day! So glad this blog is in my life — thanks to you ladies for creating it! (And I love the shout-out to the Blue Man Group in the cake too).

  17. So many posts, so many adult beverages…congrats, ladies!
    Now, I don’t mean to sound like rams on that other popular knitting blog, but….the perfect sweater? How’s that goin’?

  18. Happy Anniversary! There is a good-sized part of my stash that testifies to the power of the Mason-Dixon blog.

  19. Who knew in the beginning such a fruitful collaboration would develop over the past 3 years. All the best, and keep it going Ann & Kay!

  20. Happy blogaversary, happy blogaversary, happy blogaversary, HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY! Thanks for helping us think way outside (or way inside if you think of the Log Cabins and warshrags) the box in such a colorful way. We love you Ann and Kay!!!!!

  21. Happy Anniversary! This is my absolute favorite blog and your book is also a favorite! Thanks to you I’m log cabining and I just ordered an unseemly amount of Peaches and Creme. Thanks for all the fun.

  22. Happy blogiversary!

  23. Happy Blogiversary!

  24. Happy Blog-o-birthday and many more! (I can’t wait to see what next year’s cake looks like).

  25. Congrats! I love the cake. I think you should claim it as an anniversary cake. The heck with the kids.

  26. Happy Blogday to you two wicked-cool enablers!

  27. Happy Anniversary, ladies.

  28. Happy blogiversary!

  29. Happy happy birthday! We are all so lucky to be able to watch you two do this thing you do so well! :)

  30. I’m with Stephanie B., that is a scary baby. One of the first things you learn as a pediatrician is that blue babies are bad, and that baby needs oxygen pronto! So glad you guys cruise the KAL, it gives me a little extra thrill to know you might be watching.

  31. My Gawd that is a magnificent cake! The yogurt preztels and peanut M&Ms would make me lose all sense of propriety and just drop face first into the cake.

  32. Congratulations from a fairly new reader.

  33. the baby has just officially freaked me out. someone should have taken him out of the plastic bag sooner.
    kan pai, girlies. keep it up
