It is hard to believe, but a year has gone by since I started my blog.
A whole year! So many things has happened. I am very happy that DH has talked me into blogging. It has given me a lot. Your generous comments have build my confidence, I finally believed that there is someone out there, who wants to know what I think, someone, who is willing to read what I write.
Your kind support has started me on self-publishing my patterns and later selling my stitch markers. I have found new friends, some of whom I was lucky to meet in person. I rediscovered old friends and my world has become a lot wider. For this and much, much more I thank you.
So, to celebrate my first year as a blogger and to show my appreciation to my readers I would like to give away some prizes. There will be three prizes and three drawings for all the blog readers. Yes, you can participate in as many as you want. I will use random number generator to determine the winners. They will be announced on my blog Tuesday, Feb. 2ND.
All the stitch markers and row counters offered as prizes are One-Of-A-Kind. They were all made by me special for this contest. The markers will be finished as knit or crochet depending on what the winner wants.
