I had every intention of posting earlier in the day, but you know how it is...you wake up the day of your birth "x" number of years later, and people want to celebrate you. It's kind of awesome. I woke up to gifts and an off-key rendition of the birthday song (we are pretty sure that Little Sir is tone deaf...which is unfortunate as he thinks he is a really great singer--it's really quite cute).
We ate fancy cupcakes that K and the boys bought yesterday while I worked the first extended shift of finals week at work (9am - 10pm, you know you're jealous!). I dyed a whole bunch of wool while K and the boys made me a birthday cake (from box, but who cares? I didn't have to make it).
And now I am posting this with a little under two hours left of my birthday. For today, I am gifting a skein of my absolute favorite yarn, some Madeline Tosh sock yarn (it's Golden Hickory). This yarn is perfection, and I would like to share some of that awesome with one of you.
And since it's my birthday, I will throw in a box bag. I will make you one, all special like (this means, I will ask you what you like and you will tell me, and then you will wait patiently while I make you a boxbag that will meet with your expectation of awesomeness--I am a busy person, this could take some time).
Since there is only two hours left of the day, I will extend the deadline for this giveaway (and this one only) till tomorrow, May 13th, 6:00 pm /1800 EST. What do you need to do? Not much. Leave a comment, anything you want: birthday wishes...platitudes about my awesomeness, or yours, whatever. Just leave a comment on this post and you are in it to win it.
I will take comments for this post until tomorrow night, 6pm, EST. Comments for all other Novakkah postsn (for the last 7 days), taken until 11:59 EST (or 2359, should you prefer that), Saturday, May 12th (that's tonight!). Please leave your responses on the appropriate post. One entry per post/person. I will show you what I have to gift each day and let you know what you need to tell me to try to get it. Giftees will be selected on the 13th and gifts sent out shortly (disclaimer: "shortly" matching my definition of the word, it could vary greatly from yours) thereafter.
