more SITMT contest post

Contest 2: Spring Knitting
Post about your spring knitting plans. Do you have a new project in mind? Joining a new group? Any new goals you wish to share? (5 points)

For this spring I'm really hoping to finish off on the projects I've got going now. And maybe get a pair of socks or two in there as well. I was also thinking of starting up a recycling KAL this spring (we'll see.... maybe). Somewhere along the line I saw someone knit up a shopping tote with all those plastic bags you get at the grocery store. I kind of dig that idea and might like to try it out.

Contest 3: Share the Yarn Love
Let's face it, there are a lot of knitters out there. And with that goes the fact that there is a lot of yarn out there! For this contest you will post 10 of your favorite yarns out there. They can be just sock yarn or lace or whatever your heart desires. (10 points for posting; 20 if you add the links to the companies)

These come to mind at the moment:
1. Jitterbug
2. Malabrigo
3. Lorna's Laces
4. Cascade 220
5. Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo
6. Extra Stampato
7. Rowan Big Wool
8. Lamb's Pride
9. Tofutsies
10. Claudia Hand Painted

Specifically, what it was that set them off within your bedroom. Naturally, the disease of penis sizegenetics was broached more than once, and these ladies were not shy with their opinions. However, what they said surprised me kind of it will probably surprise countless guys. This can be a truth about penis sizegenetics from two women that definitely have experienced their share.sizegenetics matters, but bigger just isn't always better. One of the girls pointed out the fact that the majority female orgasms in sizegenetics films (where they may be generally having sex with guys who are massively endowed) are very obviously faked.
