2nd Year Blogiversary Giveaway


Yesterday marked my 2nd year of writing this blog!!  Wow eh??  In some ways it seems like I've been doing this forever, and in other ways it seems like I just started.  A lot has changed over the last two years and I'd like to think that I've improved in both my knitting and blogging.  This blog has been a real source of joy in my life and I hope to have many more years of blogging ahead. 

To celebrate and to thank you all for coming along on my journey through my crafting and my life, I'd like to host a little giveaway.  The picture above shows the main part of the giveaway prize - the book Nature's Wrapture contemporary knitted shawls by Sheryl Thies and a ball of Shoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball.  There will be a few more added goodies that I don't have finished just yet, but I will leave them as a surprise for now (you never know though, I might share a little peek during the week).  I chose these two because: 1. I'm thinking of doing a "Summer of Socks, Shawls and Sweaters" on the blog, where my knitting will be pretty much focused on these projects, and both of these seemed to be quite appropriate.  And 2. I've been knitting so many socks lately that I thought I'd give you all a chance to knit some too :-)  They're quite fun and I'd like to share the fun with you all! 

To be entered to win, please leave a comment with your name/email or Ravelry id so that I can contact you and let you know you've won.  I will be keeping the giveaway open until Wednesday June 8th 11:59pm EST.  I will choose a winner at random. 

Good luck to you all!!  And thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog and following along with me through everything!  I feel so blessed, and I think of you all as my friends :-)  Have a wonderful weekend!!

Much Love xx

  7. Happy 2 year Blogiversary! I can't believe it's been that long! I've really enjoyed reading your blog, you're a great blogger!
    I've been wanting to try the Zauberball! And I'm very curious what you're making as an additional prize! ooh!

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  8. I can't believe another year has passed. I'm still totally in love with my project bags from last year, they take turns being polka dots or flowers. I'm not entering this year, although the yarn is certainly very tempting, the book would be happier with another reader. I just wanted to say Congratulations! and many happy returns!

  9. Congratulations!!! I enjoy reading your blog.


  10. Happy Blogaversary! I have only been reading your blog for a short while, but I really enjoy reading and keeping up with it. You are really inspiring, so pretty, and I can tell you have a really genuine, sweet heart.
