The 400

This is my 400th post. Can you believe it?!?!??! Who knew I had that much to say!!

It's about time for a contest, dontcha think? Yeah, I think so too. On January 1, I really wanted to cast on something new. Can you guess what it is?
1. Guess the yarn
2. Guess the pattern
Here's a hint... I blogged about this yarn and this pattern together at some point.
If anyone gets both right, they will get a prize. If there are more than 1, I'll pull a number.
If anyone gets one of the two right, I'll pull a number out of these people too.
If no one guesses right, we'll still pull a winner.
Sound good?
Edited to add... Deadline is Friday at midnight Pacific time.

In the mean time, I cast on for the Leyburn KAL on the Ravelry page. I'm knitting them in STR lightweight- Goody, Goody. This is the coolest KAL. Everyone is doing the same pattern but in a different color. Fun, huh?

Brian and I went out Saturday night to Houston's in San Francisco. Yum! I absolutely LOVE the grilled artichoke appetizer. It's amazing.

Houston's Grilled Artichoke

Notice we couldn't wait to dig in! I had ribs for dinner

Houston's Hot Fudge Sundae

And this was a hot fudge sundae. Yum!!!!

The Embarcadero

We walked down the Embarcadero after dinner to try to work off that dessert. It was so beautiful.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

Wow - 400 posts - I'm in awe. I've enjoyed them!
It's hard to say what you were eager to cast on for - I remember you blogging about the Purl Buckswing jacket (not quite sure on the spelling of that), but something along those lines.....who knows what yarn.
Of course any of the lovely STR would also be nice....

Happy 400th post. I love Chicken Knits and I love that you are so popular and still have the time to go to meager my blog.

400 posts is a page a day calendar and more than 30 extra days. Just sayin....
