I Apologize

I have chosen the winner of my giveaway but I cannot post from my phone. It’s such a pain in the butt. So I will be announcing the winner late tonight when I can actually get on my parents computer. Im visiting right now. I leave you with a picture to make up for the delay!!

3KCBWDAY5 – Something A Bit Different

Today’s Topic – Something A Bit Different
Something A Bit Different
It’s back, and this time it has the most amazing of prizes (look for the prize for ‘most creative post’). This was a massive success last year, and for many it was the highlight of the Blog Week, so this year you are challenged, again, to find a new way of blogging.
This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.There are no rules of a topic to blog about but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog.

Without further ado, may I present Reader’s Choice! That’s right folks, you, my readers will pick my next project! And I promise to cast it on right away and finish it in a timely manner. So stay tuned to my blog. This is definitely very different from anything I’ve ever done and if I like it I may even do it again! I’m not just going to give you yarn/project combos, because then you wouldn’t really be deciding anything besides what I cast-on next. Nope. I’m giving you 4 yarn options and 5 pattern options. So you can do 1 of a few things here: you can pick your favorite yarn, and favorite pattern without thinking about how they combine. You can pick your favorite yarn and decide which pattern you think fits it best. You can pick your favorite pattern first and decide which yarn fits it best. Or you can just look at the options and pick the best overall combination.

I absolutely cannot wait to see the results so I can cast-on!!! If you want to check out more posts like this click here.

Pay It Forward Handmade

I was checking in with The Blog Hub group on Ravelry, as I do pretty regularly and found a post from TammyG. She talked about a new meme for blogs called Pay It Forward handmade, so I headed over to TammyG’s blog Life & Yarn or Yarn & Life and signed up! Here’s the requirements:

1. I will send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this post. The gift will be handmade by me. It will be sent sometime in the next 365 days. It will be a surprise. We all love getting surprises in the mail, right?

2. To sign up and receive a gift, you must play along, too. Pay it Forward on your blog, by promising to make a surprise for the first three people who comment on the post.

3. You must have a blog (that is updated, as I will blog stalk you to find the right gift for you).

4. After commenting here, you must repost this or something similar to your blog in 48 hours. If not, I will chose the next person who comments…

I think this will be so fun! At some point in the next year I will get a nice surprise, and I have a whole year to create 3 handmade surprises to give to some others and brighten their day. I want to give credit to Nomes’s Brag-a-long for creating this meme! Looking forward to seeing who I get to send some joy to!
