It's My Blogiversary!

Hello all, I didn't mean to have an extended hiatus but this Holidays were a busy 2 weeks.  In the coming days I plan on catching up and finishing out the blog posts I had planned for December.

One year ago today, I took the plunge and started this blog.  I really had no idea what tone it was going to take but I wanted to start something.  I was still reeling from losing my mother and just wanted something positive in my life.

So with all new things, I posted a lot, trying to find my voice and what this blog was going to become.  As time passed, I knew the yarn updates were going to probably drive the blog but was surprised at how much of my life I shared.

As the seasons changed I reflected on life and the world, I reflected on my mother and family and just became thankful for finding myself.

You all were a salvation in that you were interested in me and drove me to keep writing.  To tell stories of my family, my mom and my weekends and everything in between.


So in honor of my 1 year blog anniversary I have a quest for you to complete for a chance to win the giveaway.

But what is in this giveaway?

1 Skein of Madelinetosh Sock Yarn in Magenta

 I would have guessed a berry red but it's purple

5 Stitch markers of your color choice that I make

These are examples
And a pattern of your choice from Ravelry as a gift ($6.00 Max)

So here is the quest, by completing each step you will get an entry for the giveaway.
  • one entry for commenting on this post
  • one entry if you are a follower of my blog
  • one entry if you answer, "Who is the blog named after?" in email or Rav message
  • two entries if you can answer, "What did I bake the most of and what type were they?" in email or Rav message
  • two entries if you can answer, "What is my favorite sport and team?" in email or Rav message (hint: they just came off of strike)
  • finally three entries if you can answer, "What are the names of the dogs in my life?" in email or Rav message
The contest will go through February 6th where I will draw a winner!

Good luck!

<3 Heather

    1. Thank you! I have found a peace from writing. It's nice just writing out what happened and letting it go. I don't dwell as much as I used too.

  4. I think of magenta as more of a raspberry pinky/purple too. Mad Tosh's idea may be much more purpley. but it's gorgeous!
