Happy Blogiversary!!

It’s my blogiversary today!

Yes, a year ago today I sat down and *did* rather than make a resolution to do. I had been meaning to get around to starting a blog for ages, and I decided that the time had come. And I am so glad that I did. I have had a wonderful year of blogging, ‘meeting’ lots of new friends, gaining encouragement and inspiration from wonderful knitters and crafters.

So, how to celebrate? I’ve decided that a giveaway would, of course, be most appropriate (how surprising!)Β  What I am offering is a chance to win a custom made pair of handknit socks knit by yours truly.

**picture your feet here**

How do you get in to win? Simple! Sign up to follow my blog and leave a note to say you’ve done it. Already follow? Great (thanks πŸ™‚ ) Just leave a note in the comments for your entry too!Β 

I’ll make the draw in one week’s time, and then contact the winner to discuss colours and patterns.

Good luck!

PS. All sisters are welcome to enter πŸ™‚

    I’ve really enjoyed seeing your knitting here this past year (I remain in awe at how much you manage to knit!), and reading all your posts. I don’t need more socks, but just wanted to wish you a Happy Blogiversary!

    Happy Blogiversary, Happy New Year and Happy New Decade. Not already following, hopefully I did it right, following now. Love your work. I’ve not had the courage to try knitting socks yet, so maybe it might be the kick in the butt that I need to try.

    I’m a devoted follower too – can’t believe you’ve only had a blog for the last 12 months!

  10. 11 Jane January 1, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Wow, you are very generous! I love your socks. I always make plain vanilla style, so lace is intriguing to me. I also love the soft striped pair. Anyway, I now have your blog on subscription in my google reader. I’m not sure how you verify that, because I don’t know how to check who follows me that way (I’m relatively new.) Thanks for the fun!
