Birthday Celebration Giveaway


This month is my birthday month!  In honor of my fabulous birthday, I thought it would be fun to celebrate with a giveaway to thank all of you lovely readers who leave comments, some I have known for quite a while and some I've just met.  Then there are the many readers who only read.  I appreciate all of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

So for one lucky winner I will be awarding a skein of silky alpaca lace yarn in a pink colorway, so soft and yes lace weight :)

For three other winners, I will send you a packet of six photo note cards.  I have been busy this past weekend making them.


So what do you have to do to win?  Well leave a comment on the blog of course-simple as that. Please make sure you have an email address or a ravelry name in the comment so I can get in touch with you. I will use a random number generator to pick the winners.

I will close the comments on November 17th in the evening and announce a winner on November 18th in a new post.

(If I am unable to find you after one week of the announcement, I will pick another winner)

  2. Karen...although I've only "known" you a short time, this just sounds like something you would do! :) After that nightmare you had the other night about lace yarn I can't imagine parting with some...but that is just the way you are! And it looks as ifyou and I have been doing some of the same things in o ur workshops. I made some note cards last evening as well, using my husband's beautiful photography work!

  10. Happy Birthday, Karen! I would love to have the chance to knit something with that lovely yarn, and I've never knitted with lace weight before, so a challenge! Your notecards look lovely too. What a nice idea to have a giveaway for your birthday month ��

  13. Well, I clicked over to make sure I wished you a happy birthday, and then I see you're giving things away! I love making my own notecards too and yours look lovely--isn't it great how easy it is to do these days? (I sometimes think I opened an Etsy shop just so I could justify making minicards on Moo.) I hope you have a fabulous birthday month and a whole year of nice things to follow. :)

  40. Happy Birthday! My mom's birthday was this month and she would be 101 if she was still with us. I would be so excited to win the yarn. I have to buy yarn from Michael's or some place like that and have never had wonderful yarn like you use. I am so thankful that I came to your blog today and just got in under the wire.
    Love,
    Marie
