Well, there have certainly been times (such as the last couple weeks!) when I've completely fallen off the face of earth, when I haven't had the physical or mental energy to put words onto the page. But overall, I've come to rely on this blogging experience as a way of connecting to a community of people who I wouldn't have otherwise known existed. It's been so great knowing that I'm not the only yarn hoarder out there or knowing I'm not the only person who thinks about knitting 24 hours a day...that's right, even when I'm asleep.
As a thank you for being faithful readers of my little ol' blog and for also providing me with wonderful blogs to read every day, I'm having a giveaway to celebrate my 100th post.
In honor of spring, I've chosen three different sock yarns in various shades of green. I noticed little buds on the trees just today and the sun is shining...so I felt the need to celebrate by giving away some spring-inspired yarn! They're all in shades of green, a color I hope to be seeing a lot more of in the coming weeks.
The first yarn is Valley Yarns Franklin Hand-Dyed in a colorway whose name escapes me at the moment. The colors range from bright kelly green to a blue-ish teal....mmmmm, lovely.
The next skein is Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine in the Pea Soup Mix colorway. I'm currently in love with this yarn, as it's my chosen shade for the Socks Revived Contest that I've entered. I had an extra skein hanging around, so I thought I would share my obsession for this particular shade of green.
And the final skein is Rabbit Ridge Super Soxx in the Leaves colorway from Rabbit Ridge Designs, a local Alaskan dyer out of Anchorage. It varies in hue from very light celery green to a forest green.
And here they are all snuggled up together. Don't you just want to take them home?
Well....you can! Or at least you can enter for the chance to take them home. ;)
