It has been a year and a few days since I began traversing the blog land. I would like to take the moment to thank you all for hanging in with me and encouraging me along. It is really something to reach out to strangers and come back with new friends and a better person for it. For you kindness and generosity AND to celebrate my blog-a-versary :::::drum roll::::: A GIVEAWAY!
Simply leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall, your idea for the yarn and give a thanks to my favorite local shop in Troy, Ohio : Lion & Lamb Yarn Boutique. The ladies at this shop really had a huge hand in making this giveaway happen. They pulled the yarn for me over the phone, took pics AND emailed them to me so I could post this before I could make it to the shop to grab the yarn. They are really awesome at the Lion & Lamb Yarn Boutique. So, if you are in the area, you have got to check out their shop! I will be drawing October the 5th using a random number generator.
Looking forward to seeing the comments and making someone very happy!
I wanted to pop in and share a smidge of what I have been doing. My need to do things for those I love has been in full swing and has led to a bit of my wip’s finally getting done. I managed to finish Stephanie’s scarf and boot cuffs from the alpaca from two years ago. (Shame on me for letting such wonderful yarn just grump about in a bin!)
My niece,Stephanie, and her little dog too! Stephanie got these boot cuffs this evening for her birthday. She was a happy girl.
This is the accumulation of my Weasley rectangles so far. So many more to be had! The fun part is hubby is very interested and has gone yarn shopping for a bit of his blanket yarns.
And my final share for tonight, a shawl from an e-book I won from a kal/cal the Ravelry group MySistersKnitter. The e-book is The Goddeses and it is inspired by the Parthenon replica in Nashville, Kentucky. At first, I wasn’t wrapping my head around the way the pattern, Agannipe, was written but once I started it all clicked! It has turned out to be a fairly easy crochet and a joy! ( Let’s not talk about how long I had the wonderful Peruvian alpaca waiting in stash for something like this.)
Well, there is more but I cannot share them for several reasons but not to worry, they will be shared eventually. Also, in a few days it will be one whole year of blogging!!! For our one year anniversary I will be posting a giveaway!!! So keep posted!!!
