Two weeks ago I announced a contest to celebrate my second anniversary of blogging. Readers could enter by leaving a comment on the post, and the winner would receive two skeins of Malabrigo worsted in the colour Verdes:
Malabrigo is one of the warmest and coziest wools around. Today it is cold and grey and rainy outside my window, so I am thinking it is a Malabrigo kind of day; in other words the perfect day to give away some warm and cozy yarn. (Do you think if I had made the contest for some fingering weight linen yarn it would now be gloriously warm and sunny out?) I had 46 comments on the post, so I set the random number generator for 1 through 46, and this is what I got:
I want to tell you how much I enjoyed reading all of the comments. I loved hearing what your favorite posts were. Some of you mentioned being inspired to try a new technique or a new pattern from something you read on the blog. Many of you have followed the blog for a while, but were leaving comments for the first time. It means a lot to me to get such lovely, supportive comments, particularly as I am starting out on new adventures in life, and need to make decisions about what things are important to me. I will try to keep both knitting and blogging as part of the mix.
And, as a teaser for my next post – my Viajante is finally off the needles and is currently blocking on the living room floor. Photos to follow soon!
