So ten years ago today! I had no idea that I would be still doing this after ten whole years. Some of you are still following me after all this time too and for that, I thank you!
Blog popularity goes up and down like a roller coaster and then new social media moves the crowd along onto something more exciting like venues such as You Tube, Instagram and others. Everyone wants to try the next big new thing. Many of them require a smart phone and apps. I actually don't have a smart phone right now so many of these new social platforms have yet to see me like Instagram and I have even dropped Twitter. I'm saving a lot of money not having one and that's something I can use to buy more yarn! (oh, yea... and pay other bills)
I like the steady familiarity of Blogger. Its a comfortable fit for me. This is where I sit and write to you.
Every year I like to hold a blogiversary give-away and this year will be no different! I have some yarn for a lucky commenter! Its 2- 100 gram skeins of Dye Cauldron's "Moon Magic Lace Yarn" in the colour way of Cherry Blossom.
(75% super wash merino, 20% silk, 5 % stellina - 875 yards / 800 meters per 100 grams) Its a lovely pastel pink with hints of peach and a touch of sparkle. It would make pretty warp for some snuggly, all girl scarves!
Knitting: 1.5-2.25 mm needles
Weavers: 15, 18, 24 (+/-)
So don't just sit there.... write me a comment, and then you are entered to win. Only one entry per person, and leave me some way of getting a ahold of you or the prize will go to the next name drawn. Also know that comment moderation is enabled to keep spammers away so your comment will appear after I click okay on it.
I hope you are warm and cosy where ever you are as the cold start of 2018 gets under way (or not too hot if you are from down under). Any season is weaving weather really.
So once again thank you for reading my blog. The winner will be announced January 18th*, 2018. * I've had to extend the date as I unfortunately have a funeral to attend. :(
So what's on the horizon, way off in the sunshine?
The snowy Coastal mountain range which are on the mainland and the almost full moon (for the start of the year)! That's the end of Quadra Island on the left. If you look closely after the tip of Quadra, you'll see the end of Cortez Island. Clear and cold at - 4 degrees. My thanks to Bruce for the great outdoor pictures.
