Three

It's a magic number. My blog is three years old today. I can't quite think whether it feels like I've had a blog for three minutes or if I always had one. Do you ever feel that way about time? Somehow that first post is forever ago and also yesterday.

Anyway it wouldn't be a good blogiversary without some prizes for t'dear readers would it now? Three years means three prizes in my book and as my destashing efforts have been hurt by my yarn tourism I think I'd better share some stash as prizes and redress the balance a bit. These are all yarns that I'm just not sure what to do with so I hope your imaginations are better than mine.

Excuse the photos from the archives, weathery gloom means these are the best we can get.
1) There are fifteen skeins of this Lana Grossa Piccolo Print, which gives you just under 900 metres of it. It was a gift to me and I've never quite had the vision of what it wants to be.
2) Three skeins of Rowan Plaid, I think this colourway is called Moonwave. I've had fun with this stuff - I've made a scarf, legwarmers and cowl in this so it's time for someone else to love the Plaid.
3) One skein of Manos del Uruguay in colourway 6709 which should be called something like 'An autumn walk'. From the batch of this I had I've made a scarf and a Thorpe.

If you would like the yarn please leave me a comment by say Friday 27th November expressing a preference for the yarn you'd most like - if you're the only one it's yours, if not I'll do a draw for each type. I am happy to send it anywhere. Oh and if you don't want the yarn please wish me a happy blogiversary anyway (even if you've never commented before) won't you? It's nice to know who's out there :o)

Many happy blogiversary returns Sarah!

I have to enter my vote for the manos - what a beautiful autumnal mix of colours.

I hope you have many more years of happy blogging. But you've reminded me, I think it might be my blogiversary around November...

Bells said...

i know what you mean about was it jsut yesterday or years ago - how the years fly! And thank you for your lovely, lovely blog. Always a joy to visit.

Me, I'm into the manos!!

Clare said...

Three! Congrats! I remember when I first came across your blog (I had already seen it before you showed it to me - I never told you that, did I?) and thought 'wow, Sarah's pretty keen on knitting, my work here is done!' :D

I don't need any more stash(!) so I won't enter the draw, but I always enjoy hearing about your travels and your knitting exploits now that we can't talk about it every Monday morning, so keep it up! x

Rose Red said...

Happy blogthday!! So glad I found your blog (or you found mine, I think that might have been the way it happened!)

Speaking of blogthday prizes, I still owe you one! I will email you about it (tomorrow, because I'm about to go to bed tonight!!)

Well Happy Blogiversary to you! Congratulations. I'd be thrilled with any of these giveaways but I think I'd particularly like the Lana Grossa Piccolo Print. Looking forward to another 3 years and beyond.

Could you put me in the draw for the Manos please.

Congratulations on yout three years! What an effort you have made. I have no need for any of the yarn my stash is just ridiculous at the moment, but thanks for offering!!!

Caffeine Girl said...

Throw my name in for the Manos. But more importantly, accept my congratulations for your three years of blogging. I always enjoy your posts.

raining sheep said...

Wow three years. That is totally awesome!! And I have been reading your blog for two years. I will bow out of the giveaway because I have my own destashing to do but good luck to everyone. I love reading your blog and am glad that you are so faithful in posting.

Happy blogoversary! I've got too much yarn right now, but just commenting so you know we're reading!

Rachel said...

You made me curious as to how long I've had a blog...I was shocked to see my third anniversary is coming up in January. I feel the same as you about it.

Congratulations on three years...I'm so glad to have found you! The yarn is lovely but I have too much already (seriously never thought I'd say that) so passing on my chance to others!

clarabelle said...

Well done on your 3 years of blogging, Sarah! Always a pleasure to read your blog and look at your lovely photos. As I've won yarn from you before, it would be slightly embarrassing to have my name pulled out of the hat again (but, having said that, I'm intrigued by the Lana Grossa!). X
