Blogoversary Giveaway!!

It's my blogoversary!!

Get your own free Blogoversary button!

Four years since I started blogging - I can't believe it! It just seems like yesterday that I created my google account and jumped in :) I haven't been blogging so regularly recently, but I still do love it - writing about all my projects etc and sharing them will you all. Writing has always been something I'm drawn to do - I love how my thoughts flow out onto the paper or screen and suddenly my random thoughts have some substance to them.

What I love most of all is the feedback I get from you guys. I don't get many comments here, but I really do appreciate each and every one. I feel like blogging has made me some really nice connections with awesome people, and I'm very grateful for that. It's a totally unexpected benefit. I thought I'd just be writing stuff up here and no-one would bother to look - to have people look and comment is amazing to me!

So to thank everyone for making this such a nice place on the internet for me, I've decided to give away this lovely skein of kettle-dyed Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend yarn (30% silk, 70% Merino extra-fine wool), colourway 9999 (lots of lovely purples). It is 100grams, approx 300yds/270m and a DK weight yarn (22-24sts to 4" on 3.5-4.25mm needles).





It's much lovelier than my very amateur photography makes it out to be! :D

Simply post a comment below - anything would be great. And if there's anyone out there lurking who would like a chance to get this gorgeous skein of yarn, please say hi! I'd love to "meet" more of you out there! I'll ship internationally, so anyone in other countries than the UK please feel free to comment too!

I'll keep this giveaway open for 2 weeks, then use a random number generator to pick a winner on the 21st of May. Good luck everyone!

Happy Blog-versary!

I found your blog via Ravelry...so glad I did. :D Ravelry is a brilliant place and has expanded my knitting blog reading a lot!

I have a blog too and I dont get many comments either so I know what you mean...each comment is treasured (apart from the silly spam ones :P) and I know some people are lurking...maybe they are too shy to post something?

The skein of yarn looks delicious...I hope who ever wis it will knit something as scrummy as it deserves.

PS Oh I very much love the mittens in your previous post...and the colourwork fingerless gloves before that...and the socks! eee! This is why I bookmarked your blog!

PPS I'm AwesomeEle on rav...just in case...y'know... :D

Four years! Well done you for keeping going - I've had a few blogs over the years, but I don't think any of them have lasted that long. The current one's about eighteen months old, fingers crossed I don't get bored with it!
