But it's also this blog's first birthday. If it were Rachel it would be talking up a storm and making us all laugh but not yet walking. I hope it occasionally makes you laugh.
So...a contest. I have some knitting books to give away.
- Two nice Harmony stitch dictionaries, which will travel as one prize (one is 250 creative knitting stitches, the other is 220 Aran stitches).
- A hardback copy of Sasha Kagan's Country Inspiration.
- A paperback copy of Kristin Nicholas' Knitting the New Classics.
(No, the Alice Starmore books are not being given away.)
And all you have to do to enter is write me a little poem. Or a haiku. Or limerick. The only catch? You have to use at least one of the following words. Bonus points for each additional word. Extra bonus points if you make the verse somehow about knitting.
The other option would be to write a verse incorporating as many yarn names as you can cram in.
Heh. Let's give this one a week. I'm not sure how the judging will go. It may be names in a hat. There may be three verses that knock my socks off, that are head and shoulders above the rest. And first prize will get first choice of books, second prize second choice, third prize the left-over.
Does that sound fiendish enough?
