It’s hard to believe that I’m up to post 100 already! I started posting on February 18. For some reason, I decided to post daily and have to a large extent kept that schedule. I don’t think ahead, generally, to future posts; I just think about what I have to say each day, and there’s generally something that I feel is (at least marginally) worth sharing.
I really appreciate that some of you have been reading my blog for some time now! Sarah remarked that she didn’t want to run contests because she wouldn’t want to buy an audience. Well, that made me think. I can certainly understand how she feels! However, I do think that if anyone new stops by my blog as a result of a contest, they may perhaps find something else of interest. And if not, well, OK. I’m also hoping that I will hear from some of the folks that have read my blog but have not so far commented.
I plan to use what seems to be the most common form of contest on the blogs I’ve seen. Leave a comment on this post if you would like to receive my spare copy of Think Outside the Sox.
In one week’s time (on June 11) I will select one of the comments at random to receive the book. Here is an earlier post in which I gave a quick review of the book. I’m very glad that I have a copy, but I certainly don’t need two copies, so here’s your chance to get a copy of your own.
Random Knitting Photo
In my constant desire to make sure that my blog is not all words, I’ve hunted for a knitting photo that I thought you might like to see.
This is a scarf I knit from one of the yarns dyed by my daughter Meg of Twisted Fiber Art from her 2009 Big Needle Club. The yarn is Lotus – 50/50 silk and merino, and the colors go beautifully with my winter coat, so this is a scarf I wear a lot. It’s also knit to someone else’s pattern for a change – this is Wavy by Sarah Smith, published in Knitty. Lots of fun to knit, and I love the result.
