What’s Today? You Ask….

Why it’s my 4 year BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!

Do I have a giveaway? You ask….

Of course!  Those who have been readers for awhile know that I love giveaways!

Do I have to do anything? You ask….

Just leave a comment with a way to contact you…and maybe some chocolate for bribery…..

Well what is it!? You ask…because you know I am the Guardian of Yarn….

Well it is a little bit different and somewhat goofy this time around….

DSC01116 What did I tell you?  I made this fun pumpkin with googly eyes from FreshStitches and he is a free pattern…..

I made him with Lamb’s Pride Bulky yarn.  The yarn and the safety eyes were bought at Stitches… you get Googly-Eyed Pumpkin

Is that it? You ask….

Pushy!!!! Of course not!

colin1 How about this?  Oh wait, he’s not mine to give….He was just a pretty picture I stopped on when looking for this…

DSC01118 A fun tin, a funner pin and a pretty hand-made glass button…all bought at Stitches….

What? Wait! No Yarn? you yell….because you know I am now the Guardian of Yarn (it’s a big job and someone has to do it…..)

Okay, Greedy much?  I forgot to buy something at Rhinebeck, where I intended to purchase yarn for this…I did purchase a Rhinebeck pin and when I find what the heck I did with it, it will also be included in the package….

But I did purchase some yarn at Stitches I’ve been lusting after since first seeing it….

DSC01075 How GORGEOUS is this yarn!  It’s the new Rowan Colorspun….It’s okay I have another skein in a different color and plan on order many more, along with the pattern book (I bought it to try)….It’s 50g..148 yds (135m) So it’s not a ton, but enough to play with and make something small and fun!!!!!!

And you never know…I could stick something in that tin….

Hope you enjoy my BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!! (small print….giveaway will end at 12:00 pm EST on Sunday Oct 30…I’ll random generate then…and I just killed a spider crawling across my keyboard)

You are too funny :)

I always love a good giveaway and I can't resist entering, even if I'm the first post. ::sigh:: I never win when I'm the first post. Oh well.

I know NZ is too far to send the give away, but I had to stop by and say CONGRATULATIONS on your blogaversiary because it's a huge achievement. Well done! Oh and I love the Colin Firth pic. What a shame you can't give him away!
