Bees & giveaway(s)!!

I think we had the best day ever today! We took a day trip to Chattanooga. We saw some bees along the way. I'm going to share a few more photos once I go through all (629) of them.

And Tonya is holding a giveaway on her blog, Plain and Joyful Living. She knitted an adorable baby vest from the yarn she won in my last giveaway and now she's giving the vest away - how gracious and lovely she is! So if you're having a baby soon or know someone who is, head on over to enter!

So I think I'll have another contest. I'm looking for someone who has a blog where you talk at least occasionally about the things you're knitting/crocheting. You must be willing to knit/crochet something from my yarn using a pattern that can be found on the Internet (free or not) and blog about it within a month's time. If that sounds just like you, leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner to get a free skein of yarn. I know which one I'd pick (my new favorite)!

Sound good? Just leave me a comment. I'll close comments sometime on Friday, July 16th (both my anniversary and my Etsyversary!) and announce the winner as soon as possible after. International contestants are welcome!

You know I'd love to do this! I am still knitting and blogging my way through The Joy of Sox. Actually, I have a sock pattern in the book coming up that requires some worsted weight yarn - I think 220 yards or so. Say! Perfect! :) I'd love to blog about it and you. (but wait - oops need to read more carefully, my pattern is not on the internet - it's in a book.)

Regardless - no giveaway necessary - I really enjoy following your blog!


I'm throwing my hat in the ring, but I hope for the sake of your gorgeous yarn that someone with more knitting and crocheting talent wins!


i love your yarns! fingers crossed!


ooooh i hope i win!!! :)
