Five Years

725 Posts

An uncountable number of friends.

Thank you.

I’m so happy that I’ve been able to share my fiber life with you all for five years – it doesn’t seem that long since time flies when you’re having fun – but when I started this blog

I was a new knitter

I had never spun anything, ever, and had no intention to do so (thanks, Carole, for the arm twisting, btw.)

Dobby was a Freshman in High School

R and I had just started talking about getting married…someday.

I only had one dog…and I think we had a hamster?

I thought the only place I could buy yarn was Joanns and Michaels (I know!)

I hadn’t had even one thought that anyone would ever want to buy anything that I made.

I took horrific pictures.  Truly terrible ones.  It’s a wonder some of you kept coming back!

Now?

I’ve been knitting for over five years, spinning for four, Dobby has graduated High School and moved on to her own apartment (good thing because I needed the room for my stash *cough*), R and I are engaged and getting married in the fall, we have two dogs (no hamster) and I now know that I can get really awesome yarn from really awesome people and a boatload of really awesome people have purchased something I made with my own two hands (and a really cool sewing machine).  Also, thanks be to bob, I am a little better at taking pictures.

Thank you so much for making this journey with me.  I wouldn’t have kept blogging if it weren’t for you guys who take the time to leave comments (because, in case you hadn’t already guessed, I’m a bit of a comment whore *ahem*)  I’m so glad that I have made it to this milestone that I am going to be giving away not one, not two, not three or four but FIVE prizes in this little contest I have cooked up.  It’s REALLY simple:

Comment here, you get a chance to win.

Send people here, you get another chance to win.  One for every person who said you sent them, in fact.

Tweet about my contest, with a link, you get yet another chance to win. (you can tweet up to three SIX!! times throughout today and tomorrow, just not more than once per hour.  You’ll get a chance for each tweet – please tag with #sbjl or mention me (@jessalu) so I can see them!)

Link in FaceBook for another chance!

There you go!  Want to know what you’re playing for?  Two of the prizes are Gift Certificates to my shop for your choice of one bag.

New Prints for February

For the third prize, my friend Scout has let me offer up a skein of exclusive Scouts Swag club yarn:

The fourth prize will be a pair of socks I knit for you on my CSM.  I will provide the yarn and the CSM, you provide an idea of your favorite colors and your shoe size.

The fifth prize will be a $25 gift certificate to the Loopy Ewe!

Contest closes at Midnight on Friday night (so those of you who want to post on their blogs but see this late on Thursday, have another day to get a post up), I will pull winners over the weekend and post them on Monday.  ETA: I wanted to mention that these are five separate prizes so you have five different chances to win – sorry for any confusion!

There you have it, I hope you find one of those prizes worth a comment!  ;o)
