…years.  Can you believe it?  I’ve been blogging since February 18, 2005.

I’ve shared quite a bit with you all.  Raising a daughter, getting married, becoming a grandmother – with some knitting and spinning and sewing thrown in for interest. ;o)  It’s been quite a ride, thank you for letting me share it with you!  I hope to continue doing so for the foreseeable future!

I like to celebrate my blogiversary in the Hobbit fashion of giving gifts to my guests instead of receiving them.  In the past I’ve given a gift for each year of blogging but I’m thinking that I might save that for the ‘big’ years (10, 15, etc) and just give a few really nice gifts.  I hope you find these worth playing for!

Grand Prize: A Sock Kit!  One Stitched by JessaLu bag of your choice from my Artfire shop (excluding any Spoonflower prints, sorry!), one skein of sock yarn from my stash in colors of your choice and a size 1.5 Knitpicks Circular needle.  Everything you need to knit a pair of socks!

Second Prize: One Stitched by JessaLu bag of your choice from my Artfire Shop (also excluding Spoonflower prints, sorry again!)

Third Prize: A $25 Gift Card to The Loopy Ewe!

Fourth Prize: Choice of 4oz of Spinning Fiber or a Skein of Sock Yarn from my stash (your choice of colors, you tell me your favorite and I’ll do my best!)

Other prizes to be added while the contest goes on – per my usual ‘rules’.  If we hit 100 comments, I’ll add a prize (done!).  For every 50 comments after that, I’ll add another prize!  If you tell your friends and they say you sent them, you get an extra entry so blog, tweet, facebook post, get the word out and get your friends to mention you!

Contest closes Friday 2/18 at midnight.  Winners will be drawn over the weekend and posted on Monday.  Thank you for sharing my blogiversary with me!
