Mullets, knitting, and contests, oh my!

Yesterday was my birthday, and yes, it was full of mullets, knitting, and fun.

I finished Orangina, just minutes before our local library opened, so I took it along for a quick photo shoot::

I wasn't quite dressed for the occasion, so I promise some more pictures of Orangina was I've blocked it and am wearing a more appropriate tank underneath!

I used Knitpicks Risata yarn for this project, and am so happy with the results.

Now back to birthday fun, one fantabulous gift that I received was a waterproof bag for taking underwater shots. Like this::

So, after the knitting, and swimming, we were off to a Bon Jovi concert. Queue the mullets.
{Someone's mullet was a bit rough right out of the packaging, so he combed it while we were on the subway.}

Well, all the celebrating and summer fun put me in the mood for a little CONTEST! In the spirit of summer birthdays, summer knitting, and cold beers on hot summer nights, here's the contest:

Leave me a comment and tell me something you love about summer. And remember to make sure that I can get in touch with you (either through your blog, or by leaving your email address). I will randomly choose a winner and you'll receive a set of the Ravely Pint Glasses!

The contest will remain open until Wednesday, July 16th at noon. Good Luck!!

I love summer fruit. Nectarines, peaches, watermelon. Yum. And good tomatoes. Double excellent.

Heat, I like the warm weather too.

what could be better than knitting in the library. the f.o. is awesome. and i love the mullet thing, you are a total riot.

summer, it meant late evening on the patio with a nice cold it means early evening on the patio watching the little ones play.

hope i win so i combine the two memories in a cool pint glass.

The thing I love most about summer is being at home with my family (I'm away at university for most of the year). I also love swimming in the river.

the smell of the fresh cut grass/fields. you know pop only does it rarely so it's certainly a treat. maybe the lightning bugs beat that out though. you missed out sometime when i was home last-there were tons. nice sweater dude!
