Remember, remember the 5th of November....
2 years ago today my brother, sister in law and myself were sitting around the living room talking when somehow the subject came around to blogs. We had each had one in the past, mostly of the self-brooding MySpace variety and started wondering what we would blog about now that we were grown. It didn't take me long to decide I would start a knitting blog, and after my brother suggested the title, "Don't Drool on the Wool," I kind of just up and ran with it. As my first post suggested, I didn't really have any idea whether it would stick, but I'm glad it did!
For a long time Don't Drool on the Wool was really just a knitting diary that happened to be on the internet- I had no followers for nearly a year, but after blogging steadily and starting to link up with Tamis Amis as well as getting active by reading and commenting on others' blogs I managed to find myself smack in the middle of this awesome knitting/blogging community!
You know what I love about blogiversaries? They're the perfect opportunity for a giveaway!
First, the rules:
1) This giveaway is open to Earth residents only: I can pay shipping around the world but not to Mars, please.
2) You do not have to be a follower of my blog to enter: just leave a comment!
Now for the prizes!
I don't know about you but I look forward eagerly to each publication of Interweave's Knitscene. I picked up an extra copy of the Winter 2012 edition for one of you lucky readers!
Worsted Merino Superwash. This squishy worsted, in a color hand-chosen for you by my 2 year old son, rolls in at 218 yards: perfect for a hat or cowl this gift-giving season.
Speaking of giving gifts! I think it is very important to label your hand-knit presents with washing instructions or fiber content, and what better way to do it than these super cute foil gift tags?
So there you have it. Just leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered into my 2 year blogiversary. I'll leave the comments open until November 12th and pull a name and announce it on Tuesday November 13th.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave a way for me to contact you in your comment. Ravelry ID is perfect if you don't want to leave your email out in the open. If you are the winner and I don't hear back from you by the following week (November 20th, Tuesday) I will have to pick a runner up.
As always, Happy Knitting, and thank you thank you thank you for reading, commenting, and being an omnipresent force that occasionally deters me from casting on 6,000 new projects at once.
COMMENTS NOW CLOSED! Thanks to everyone who entered & good luck!
