Belated Blogiversary Bash

As I mentioned yesterday, the year anniversary came and went… so this is a belated blogiversary bash of sorts. My first post; about the over large stash and critters in a bag of yarn from the goodwill. I am still attempting to stashbust. At least it is better organized and mostly in cedar bins. So…. a little contest!

Contest Rules

Three prizes. One (let’s say the shakespeare) goes to the person who most closely guesses the number of comments I’ve had from the beginning of blogging (which was September 16, 2006, over on my livejournal account) until the end of the contest (it’ll be a surprise for me too). The other two go to random entries. Contest ends 5 pm EST, Sunday September 30.

Prizes

shakespeare
Artful yarns Shakespeare

That’s enough to make a woman’s pair of mittens…and I’m sure lots of other items. Felts easily. Worsted, 135 yards, 100% wool, includes a scarf pattern on the label.

chunkytweed
Universal Yarn Deluxe Chunky Tweed

I saw this felted up when I bought it at Colonial Yarns in PA. Looked like it felted very nicely. Chunky, 120 yards, 100% wool.

And a mystery grab bag of yarn oddments.
mysterybag (this picture shamelessly downloaded onto my computer and then uploaded into flickr to download onto the blog from somebody on the web…)

I’ll put in enough to make an adult hat or small bag. It’ll be wool, maybe some silk, mostly worsted, and in colors that at least don’t scream horrible things when they are near each other.

My zinnias….

My neighbor’s zinnias…

    Hmm, my random-number generator says… 1066 (since you’re giving away Shakespeare, I’m staying with the English-history theme).

    You are an amazing photograph, I just love your nature photos. This morning there were ice on my car’s window, but during the day the sun is shining and the autumn colours is so beautiful. Tomorrow if the sun is shining I will go out and take some photos.
    About the contenst, I have no idea, but maybe 1260 comments.
    Wish you a really nice weekend.

    Yikes, this took some thought. I settled upon a number, then I looked at everyone else’s guesses, and mine is way out there. I’ll stick with it though. Any more thinking, and I’ll hurt myself. My guess is 1440 comments! Happy blogiversary!
