2nd Blogiversary Prize Draw


Oops, I almost missed it! On 31st July I'll have been blogging for two years so I thought I'd do the traditional thing that a lot of bloggers seem to do and have a blogiversary prize draw. As is the norm, if you want to be included in the draw, just leave a comment on this post. I haven't had time to think what the prize will be so let's just say it will be a surprise package!

Now I'm going to bore you all by reflecting on some of the stuff I've done knitting-wise in the last two years but, because I'm in a mad rush, it's just going to be a list.

Joined UKHK.

Started this blog.

Launched Maidstone Knitters' group along with Jan.

Attended many workshops and learnt lots of new techniques including one at the Knit Tin with Debbie Abrahams learning how to knit with beads.

Organised an event, along with Maidstone Knitters, for Worldwide Knitting in Public Day last year which took place in the Chequers Centre, Maidstone, to raise awareness about knitting.

Was involved in a Cancer charities craft fayre in which our knitted items stall raised a whopping almost £7,000!

Had two beaded patterns published in UK magazines; Viennese Tablecloth in Knitting, and Beaded Butterfly in Simply Knitting.

Learned a bit about jewellery making - enough to make stitchmarkers, row counter bracelets, etc, and launched my eshop, Knitz & Glitz.

Joined in with the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics Challenge and made this.

Spent lots of dough on yarn, books, etc, which is steadily taking over every bit of space that yarn and books could feasibly fit into! . . .
