Happy first blogiversary to me!!!

I can't believe I've been blogging for a year, can you? Honestly, it feels so surreal to me.
Within this period, I've get to meet lots of great people, amazing knitters. It's such a joy knowing you guys, and I've learnt so much from you. Thanks for all the supports you gave me ;) Love you guys!

Um...was it too lovey dovey?

Anyway...let's move on to the draw. Remember I said let's do a contest for celebration? Well, here we go....
7 names...

all folded nicely (so that I won't be tempted to peek)and put into my Hayden hat since I don't have any magician style hat.

hand in...

one drawn...

We have a winner!!

Conratulation Mimi!! You just won yourself yuvee's first ever blogiversary prize!

Now, if you recall, I promised to take my knitting around town, and well...I did, but my hands were too freezing to take picture. Lame excuse, I know. Here's some pictures that I took anyway....

Spiral Madness

Pattern : by Nona
Yarn : 2 skeins of Louisa Harding Kimono Angora(yum...)
Needles : 5mm
Comments: It was fun fun fun!! I love the pattern, head over heels for the yarn, didn't really want to cast-off, been wearing it everyday ever since.

I also finished one Jaywalker....weeks ago...but only grafted it last night.

Slow, I know. But to make up for it, I also cast-on for the second sock yesterday.
No ribbing for me, instead I did this...


Anyway, I finished my essay after about 10 hours of hard work, with dangerous amount of chocolates and snacks on Sunday. Got another project due this Thursday and my first interview (yikes!) next Wednesday. Wish me lots of luck, will ya? I need it, deperately.

Mimi, will you send me your address, please?

Such fun, you photographed the whole draw :) Hard to imagine that it is cold when it looks so bright and sunny. Your pink curly scarf looks adds a cheerful touch to your jacket and it's so nice to be able to wear a scarf, unlike here, it is hot, hot, hot!

Happy blogerversary, and I have to say that I definitely enjoyed the drawing process!

Mimi said...

Oh, i can't believe i am the lucky girl! It was so exciting to see my name by the end of the draw. ;)

I love the curly scarf and your new sock. I specially like the picot edge, it makes the sock so feminine.
