So I’ve been craft blogging for two years now (thanks for the comment and reminder Teena from Toronto)! I can’t believe it’s been that long since I decided to stop torturing my LJ friends with many crochet posts. Then I learnt how to knit last year and haven’t stopped since. It’s like when I found how much I loved reading in Grade 3 after a few years of struggling to learning and ate up every book i could get my hands on and still am!
It’s been a good mail week. I got my long awaiting book The Eclectic Sole and some bags from stuckin illinois’s etsy store. I love her bags and her store is temporarily closed, but you can purchase her bags elsewhere info in her profile on etsy. I also got my order from ScaryMerry inside the lay see (lucky red envelope) are the cutest fortune cookie markers. I tried to take a picture of them but couldn’t get a good enough shot of the markers to do them justice.
Since my 30th birthday is on Friday I thought I’d post the Birthday/Blogoversary Contest. So Marsha of First Things First, gave gifted mathoms on her birthday to her readers and I love the idea of giving gifts on your special day. Tolkien’s hobbits gave friends and family gifts(mathoms)on their birthday. Now these gifts that I will be offering in the contest are some books I’m going to destash and hope that they can be found a good home and a very cool kit. Here’s are some pictures
So the books are
- Modern Classics by Louisa Harding
- Felted Crochet by Jane Davis
- Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles by Cat Bordhi
- and Knitscene Spring 2007 ( have an extra copy)
As for the kit it’s the Baby Bobbi Bear kit. It comes with two hanks of Blue Sky Alpaca’s Organic Cotton in Nut and the Baby Bobbi Bear pattern. So leave a comment here and let me know what books you are interested in and I’ll put your name in the draw. You can get your name in the draw more times if someone comments that you told them about the contest. I’ll add names till the end of June then I’ll draw a name for each book and the kit. Good luck! Edited June 14 3:50pm PST Thanks Michelle (blogless from South Africa) for bring up the whole shipping issue to foreign countries and costs. I forgot all about mentioning this, sorry everyone. For the time stated of this edit the contest will only be for those in North America. I apologize for not mentioning this earlier and I will honour anyone who put their name in to the cut off person who is Bean. PS don’t forget to tell me if someone told you about my contest (unless it was my Raverly post on the CLF group) share the love and they get their name in again for referring you! Happy Knitting everyone and Good Luck!
