Well, it seems I was so caught up in the Madness that I missed my First Blog-O-Versary! What's the appropriate thing to celebrate, then? :) I've seen that many folks have a contest, but the last time I tried that, no one actually entered. SO, this time, I'm going to make it REALLY EASY: Just post a comment - any sort of a comment - to this post before midnight Eastern Time on April 27, which is the date of the second-ever post I'd made here. (eta: Winner will be chosen by random drawing. Heck, I might even choose 2 winners, if I get enough interest... )
The Prizes (Choose Any 2) :
Dream In Color Baby Lace Weight Yarn in "Blue Lagoon" (#VB160) - 100% Superfine Australian Merino Superwash (Spun & Hand-dyed in the USA) - 4oz., approx. 700 yards
Connor's Cookies And Confections - Choose cookies, fugde, or shortbread (you may choose this twice for your prize, if you'd like)
Hay's Handcrafted Stretchy Bracelet or Earrings or Keychain, each made by Connor.
In other news... I threw in the needles on the Slippin' Stripin' Sock - the yarn and the pattern were not tremendously compatible. I really tried to gut it out to the end, but by the time I started the toe, I was near-to-cussing. That's my cue that it's time to give it up and start fresh with a clear head and finer yarn at some point in the future.
