Bloggiversary Competion

Some four years ago today I took a very tentative step into blogland. I had no idea how long I would blog for or  indeed whether it would be my one and only post. I've been thinking about my poor neglected little blog for some time.

I spent a long time reading through four years of posts the other day and decided I'd missed my blog a great deal. So what better way to return to blogging that to have the almost obligatory bloggiversary competion. So I've put together a little package of goodies which could be yours - all you have to do of course is leave a comment here on my blog during the month of March. And every comment made will earn you an entry into the draw. Simples!

With a Little Help from my Friends

Hopefully this is the first of many posts this year, that is if I can get my head round some of the changes here on Blogger ;-)

It's been a busy few months since I was last here. Life has gradually returned to something approaching normal but I have to say it has taken a while. I think I was on automatic pilot until Christmas, but I have definitely turned a corner now. Planning and getting ready for my daughter's wedding in May has been a most enjoyable way to concentrate the mind. And work keeps me very busy indeed.

I have been knitting a little, and for anyone who might be interested everything can be seen on my Ravelry projects page. This however is my latest FO, it's the Falling Leaves Wrap which seems to have taken me a very long time.

Several people helped me in the making of this by sending me their leftover yarn, you know who you are and thank you again. The yarn was a club yarn in the 2009 Socktopus sock club and is Toddy from The Yarn Yard a lovely mix of merino and nylon, great for socks and equally lovely for wraps too :-)

I used 4mm Aero needles and around 1.8 skeins of yarn.

Happy New Year!

I bet that fooled you ;-)

Do you know, at the end of this month it will be my bloggiversary. My poor, sadly neglected little blog will be four years old!

I am determined that it will be neglected no longer, and have a little competion in mind.

I'l be back again on Monday with more details.

Hello again btw. I've missed you all :-)
