It's amazing to me that it's been almost a year since my first blog post. March 27 will be the official, one-year anniversary of this blog. Wow. Who knew I'd actually keep this going, posting mostly about knitting, for a whole year?? Certainly not me!
When I started the blog, it was about loom knitting -- the only knitting I knew at the time. Thanks to the wonderful workmanship on the looms I purchased from Sam and Isela at Decor Accents and all the help from Isela and other loomy folks on the Internet, I got pretty creative with the looms.
But I wanted more. I wanted lace and lots of it.
So in September, I went to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival and bought a DVD from Nenah Galati to learn how to knit Continental style. The rest is history. Now I pretty much have a knitting project with me wherever I go and if I could, I'd sit and knit all day, every day!
Of course, no blog is worth anything without readers. And since anniversaries are a time for sharing the joy of an event, it just seems logical to have a contest with a nice prize. Let's start with the prize, 'cause life's too short not to eat dessert first!
So here it is. Two skeins of Debbie Bliss Merino DK in a rich, deep purple (color #608), 100% wool. Each skein is 50 grams, 110 meters (about 122 yards). Would make a lovely pair of Fetching Mitts or something similar.
But that's not all! The winner will also receive a skein of Trekking XXL in color number 78, Shades of Purple. One 100gram ball is 420 meters (459 yards) of 75% new wool, 25% nylon yarn. Plenty to make a pair of socks or perhaps a nice shoulder shawl.
The colors work very well together, so this would make a lovely set of socks and mitts to give as a gift or keep for yourself. :)
So, I bet you're wondering how to win, right? Well, it's deceptively simple. Just leave a comment to this post or any other post between now and Monday, March 26 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. Everyone who leaves a comment will receive an entry into a random drawing for the prize.
But wait! You can increase your chances! More about that tomorrow!
Oh, yeah, I decided to change the look of the blog, too, just for grins and giggles. After all, even a blog needs a little spring cleaning, don't you think?
