3rd Anniversary Blog Giveaway

Hello to all of my lovely fellow blogging chums. As you will see from the title of this post I have been wittering bestowing my wisdom and wit on this here site for three years this week.

Only fair to organise a little giveaway I thought. So with apologies for the pics, (I must blame failing light at this time of day and season). Here goes.

So the top image shows the giveaway prize in total. 2 x 50g balls of 100% pure Alpaca yarn, made in Peru. Only the best for you lot.
A pattern for some delightful fingerless mitts and various flowers and leaves, in case you can't think what to make with the yarn.
6 x pretty crochet hooks. Plus as a random afterthought, a small perfectly formed nodding doggie.

There you have it. Should you be so inclined to enter the giveaway, you will need to be a Google Friend Connect Follower and leave a comment on any of my posts this week.
Yes this is partly a ruse on my part to increase my listed followers. (Hundreds of lovely peeps visit my site so I know you're out there).

For every comment you make you will get one entry, so more comments more chances.

I will pick a name out of the proverbial titfer Sunday night.

I'm very happy to send the parcel anywhere in the world, so this giveaway is open to everyone.

I'll be back tomorrow with a 'proper' post about my exciting weekend. I know, you can't wait.

  10. Happy blog anniversary, these years go by so fast, don't they? What a generous giveaway, I'd love to enter please.

  11. Happy third blog anniversary. Willie is such a lovely man I think he should win. You could always personalise the nodding dog with pink ribbons :-)

  12. Happy 3rd blogday. I cant crochet either and postage to where I live is prohibitive, so. if I win, buy my sister a coffee and a teacake would you? This is my first day checking out your blog and I love it.

    1. Sounds like a deal. But to enter with all of the comments you have left, you have to be a Google Friend Connect Follower. You don't have to have your own blog btw, just click on the join this site button, top right of the blog.
