Blogiversary Giveaway!!

I've never hosted a giveaway here before, but this month marks my 5 year blogiversary!!

So of course I had to.

I'm giving away:

1. A skein of hand-dyed Belle Epoque yarn which I bought specifically for the giveaway from my Local Yarn Store (yay LYSs!). It was hand-dyed in Scotland and made of wool from Shetland sheep.


2. A hedgehog much like this little guy from my etsy shop.

Littlest Hedgehog


To enter leave a comment on any of the posts I make starting with today's and ending with next Monday's. Only one comment per day please, however for more entries you may comment on multiple days this week.

The giveaway will run until Tuesday, June 1st at 9:00 am BST (British Summer Time). Shortly thereafter I'll draw two winners -- one for the yarn and one for hedgehog. If you have a preference, please state 1 or 2.

I'll contact the winners via their blog, or email. So if you do not link to your blog, please include your email in the comment.

  1. That hedgehog is freakin' adorable! Though the yarn looks really soft.... Guess that means I have no preference. ;)

  2. Wow! 5 years...time flies when your having fun!
    I love the new updated look, but I must confess. I miss the old comment under your header, about how you rarely talk about yarn and you don't have a store anymore. It made me laugh every time! =)

  3. Added you to my google reader :) cute blog. I don't have a preference, they're both gorgeous!

  4. The wool is gorgeous - is it from the same shop that you got mine at? Hey, I'm going to teach kids knitting and also a kids fiber arts class this summer - I'm going to be picking your brain, especially for the latter....

  87. I love your photos of Ediburgh. :) I'm a huge Rebus fan and Edinburgh always looks so lovely. Now your photos confirm it. I so want to visit one day.

    Thanks for having this giveaway. It's hard to choose between the beautiful yarn and the adorable hedgie. But for the safety of the hedgie, I'll choose the yarn. My cats tend to steal small furry things. :)
