I took an intended blog break for a while. But now I am back, just in time to celebrate my 2nd blogiversary (Saturday)! There is a lot to celebrate (I think). Besides my brand spanking new craft space/studio/room/what-have-you...
I have been blogging for 2 years...I have made a lot of stuff. I have developed other fibery pursuits in addition to knitting and I have made a lot of friends through my adventures in blogging. Would you like to celebrate with me? I don't want to say that I am having a contest, because that's not what this is...it's more a raffle with your suggestions as "payment" for a chance to share in the blogiversary fun. So I have a few things that might be of interest to you:
Yarn, of course (let's say fingering weight with enough quantity for a pair of socks, shall we?).
My first spindle, it's up for grabs. It is not without its flaws, but I learned to spin on it, so maybe you could too. And why would you want a spindle without a little fiber to go with it? I'll give you something nice, don't you worry.
Or maybe you have a thing for fabric? How about a grab bag of scraps? Are you into miniature quilts? Or maybe charm quilts are your thing.
And if none of these things strike your fancy, perhaps you want something finished that you can simply unwrap and put on? How about a scarf handwoven by me? I will do a finished object post on this scarf after I wet block it. It's kind of special; but, I am biased, of course. It's purple, silver and lilac and it's made of a combo of silk & wool for the warp and the weft is handspun naturally dyed corriedale wool.
To throw your name into the hat for one of these prizes, all you need to do is offer a suggestion of a really good book, movie or cd/album/whatever that I can occupy my non-crafty time with. After suffering some bitterness over wasting 9 hours of my life reading the last book in the Twilight series, I need some suggestions of books, movies, or music that will make me smile, think, or at the very least, feel supremely entertained.
Leave your suggestion in the comments along with the prize you would prefer to be considered for (yarn, spindle & fiber, fabric or woven scarf). Each suggestion should be entered as a different comment, there are four different prizes, so you can offer up to four different suggestions. That seems fair, right? Leave a comment by 11:59 p.m. (or 2259), August 30th (my blogiversary)--I will announce the winners on Sunday, the 31st.
