Blogiversary giveaway!

As previously mentioned, March is the month I first started blogging, way back in 2005. This makes it my three year blogiversary, so it's definitely an excuse to have a giveaway.

Here's what's up for grabs:



A prize for laceweight junkies! On the left, a skein of handpaintedyarn.com pure wool laceweight. The site says this is 850 yards per skein, ravelry says 950. Gorgeous mix of purply reds, not available on the website at the moment. On the right, a skein of Posh Yarn Felicity pure silk laceweight. I believe this is 700 yards, and not a yarn that PY carry any more. This skein was a limited run for the one-time Lace Club.

To enter the draw, please leave a comment on this post!

Last date for comments is Friday 5th April, right up to midnight UK time.

I also have an extra prize to give away, this time for all the lovely people who drop by here and comment. I know a few of you are having a break from blogging at the moment too, or don't have much free time for one reason or another, so I wanted to say "thanks" by including all of the "regulars" in a separate draw too (you can still enter the other draw of course!). I won't post any pictures, suffice to say it is sock-oriented!

Hopefully I will be announcing the winners on the weekend of the 6-7th April. Good luck!

I am now off to do a little cleaning around the house, then finish off the border and bind-off on my Forest Canopy shawl. The latter may have to wait until we've watched the Malaysian Grand Prix though! Couldn't face getting up at 6am on a Sunday to watch it live so we're watching the re-run in an hour or so :-) I shall be cheering for all of the British drivers on principle, and also rooting for my favourite:



(and avoiding any and all news feeds between now and 2-45!)

I stayed up to watch the Australian GP last weekend but that wasn't at such a bad time, however staying up until 6am and then not getting to bed until 9am is just not possible anymore - I used to do it all time but since reaching 30 I just can't.
So glad to see another F1 fan and knitter. I have to admit to having a soft spot for Jenson Button but I also really root for Anthony Davidison but that is because I went to school with him and even went out with older brother when I was 16. Off to avoid all media now as I hate to know what happned before I watch it. Happy Easter!

Just has to comment again as I mentioned to my boyfriend that I had just found another F1 fan who knits and blogs and his reply was, 'all knitters must like it as it's a perfect chance to sit and knit for 3 hours at a time'

What do you mean cleaning before knitting?! Surely that's in the wrong order?

Happy Blogiversary!Crikey how time flies...3 years! well done! I don't even know how long i've had my own blog...tut tut!Good luck to whoever wins the lovely yarn!.....shame about Lewis Hamilton,i'd like him to do well because he's English and it would be nice for us to win something!Theres still hope for us tho'i live quite near to Silverstone and our local radio reported that the BRDC have taken on at least 10 apprentice drivers to train as F1 drivers in the UK..so all is not lost,they sounded very promising!

A very happy blogiversary to you!!
The colours of that yarn are just gorgeous, I love deep colours like that. And although I watch F1 occasionally, I hadn't really seen Nick Heidfeld before, he's rather nice isn't he?

what an amazing blog - such a pleasure to stumble across this when actually googling for something else! Great photos - and I LOVE the shawl! Happy 3 years and many more to come... I now have to go and follow all your links of course, but I love virtual knitting as much as the real thing.
