Three years ago today, I published my first post on this blog. Surprisingly, I have not yet run out of things to say. Life has been busy the past year, and it is sometimes difficult to find time for knitting and blogging. I have been lucky to have Emma, Leah, and Doug, who are always willing to help out and put up with crazy requests. I am also lucky to have made friends through blogging; thank you to all of the regular readers here for your comments and support through the years. You have made this fun.
To mark this anniversary, I am going to give away some yarn. One lucky commenter will receive two skeins of the widely-admired (and hard to obtain) Wollmeise Pure 100% Wolle. These beautifully dyed skeins are in fingering weight and come in very generous 150 gram skeins, with approximately 574 yards per skein. The winner of this contest can have their choice of two skeins of Lapislazuli, a rich pure blue:
Or, two skeins of Amethyst medium, a very pretty purple:
Or, for the indecisive person, one skein of each:
Here’s how it works. Please leave a comment to this post. In your comment, let me know if you prefer the blue, the purple, or one of each. (Please only leave one comment.) I will pick a winner by using a random number generator. Only comments received before Friday October 10th at 6pm my time (GMT) will be eligible to win. I will announce the winner on Saturday, October 11th. There are no geographical restrictions. This yarn is part of my stash – it has been kept in plastic bins in a smoke-free, animal-free household and treated with love and respect.
I will be leaving tomorrow for a workshop and will be crazy busy all week; nonetheless I will bring stacks of knitting, just in case!
