Post 500: A Bloggy Scavenger Hunt!

Well, here it is, the 500th post on my blog! From my humble beginnings in 2004 (really, really humble.... I just went back and read some of them) to the obsession with socks, and now the present. To celebrate I'm having a little blog scavenger hunt. Leave a comment with the answers. Keep in mind, I'll be leaving these comments screened until the end of the contest, so if you want to say something to the world, make a separate comment. I'll pick the most correct answers for an as-yet-undetermined prize, and if there's a tie I'll draw names. (I promise, it will be nice!) I'll give you til April 4th, that's when I get back from Sock Camp. :)

1. What are my cats' names? (a bonus point for *full* names, another bonus point for linking me to the cutest picture of one or both of them on the blog)
2. Who is my "boyfriend"?
3. What yarn did I use for my first "human-sized" socks?
4. How many adult sweaters have I knit?
5. Why are my Regia Strato socks famous?
6. What luxury fiber do I dislike?
7. How many times have I moved since starting this blog?
