Anyone out there? & GIVEAWAY!

Hello... I have been a bit slack lately with writing up my blog, but I have been oh so busy!
I have been trying to clean up my "stash" and this is what I have had to battle with:

This is a sneak photo of some of my stash in one of my built in cupboards. These 3 shelves are crammed with kits that I have bought. Most were bought on a trip over to Paducah, USA, 2 years ago...believe me, I have made up some, but they seem to be multiplying!

I have also finished reading these 2 books by Kate Jacobs: The Friday Night Knitting Club & it's sequel Knit Two. Near the end of book one, I had trouble reading through my tears...I won't let on what happened but it was an ending that I didn't expect.

Now lastly, the GIVEAWAY!!... as I love reading comments left on my blog, and I haven't had that many lately, I thought I would spur you on and ask you to leave me a message, and I will put ALL your names in a bowl and draw one out to win this kit by Hugs 'n Kisses. I will draw the winner on Sunday 18 April...that's 4 days away... so pass the word... Overseas entries welcome!

Until next post.

I've been away

I have been away for the past week, visiting my daughter, SIL and 2 grandchildren. I had a wonderful time most of the week...except when we all came down sick one by one with a tummy bug.
The one good thing about getting over being sick, was the knitting I got done. I took one 200gm ball of the wool I plan to knit into an aran jumper for my BF, thinking I wouldn't get much time to knit it up.... I wish I took another ball.. as you can see by the following photo, it knitted up just great...

Until next post...
