How time flies! This blog was born three years ago today. All I wanted to do was to keep a record of my knitting. And since I like to write and take photos, why not do a blog?
I really didn't give much thought that people would actually read this thing!
But I'm so grateful to the folks who found Snit n'Knit and read it once--and then read it again. Over the past three years, your comments have given me cheer and comfort. My blog friends have become some of my favorite people!
From reading other blogs, I've seen such gorgeous needlework! I may never knit, crochet, tat, quilt, embroider or applique any of these projects --but I so enjoy seeing what brings challenge, joy and beauty into our lives.
So to celebrate three years of blogging, I'm giving away three prizes. Leave a comment by midnight on Friday, February 12th and you'll be eligible for one of the prizes. The winners will be chosen via a random number generator. In your comment, please:
1) List one of your favorite needlework projects. It doesn't have to be something you've made--just something that you really like. If you feel like sharing why it's a favorite, please do so.
2) Choose which prize is your favorite.
Winners will be announced on Saturday.
In the spirit of favorite things, I've chosen prizes from three of my favorite categories: books, bags and yarn. Here's the photos:
A book. Somehow I acquired two copies of Clara Parkes' wonderful book. Everything you might want to know about wool but were afraid to ask. Nice patterns in there, also.
A bag. Doesn't this Maruca bag make a cute knitting bag? A local store was closing and they were practically giving these bags away. I bought a few and this one was set aside because I knew it would be a terrific blog prize. (The more I look at this bag, the more I can't believe I'm giving it away. The colors and the vintage-look are wonderful and just so me.)
A skein of yarn. Sundara sock yarn in a pretty shade of pinky coral. The color is Dahlia and there's 350 yards. If you're not a sock-knitter, this yarn would also make a very lovely Spring scarf or shawlette.
OK, enough talk from me--let me hear about your favorites!
