BLOGIVERSARY Contest


Happy Blogiversary to me! It's my party and I'll knit if I want to, knit if I want to, knit if I want to! One year ago on March 30, 2006 I started this blog. What a wonderful ride it has been. It has given me a great opportunity to combine my love of knitting with my love of photography and my love of flowers and nature. But most of all my love of friendship and the exciting opportunity to meet all of you! So as a special thank you and to celebrate, I'm having a contest. Either leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and let me know which of my knit items is your favorite and why. Or if you prefer - which of my photographs you like the best. If you don't like any of them just fake it! The winner will be drawn at random from all the entrants and I will send you a bunch of knitterly goodies. Be sure to let me know how to contact you if I don't already have your e-mail address. Thanks for playing and thanks even more for visiting my blog!

Allison,
I love all your great pics. I think I first discovered your blog & great photos in the last Tote Exchange, and have been a loyal follower ever since. You have inspired me to try to be more creative in my yarn pics on my blog.
It was a hard choice but I think my favourite photo would be the one on February 2nd (slow progression) the Hyphen Boy Bag amongst the blooms. But I also love the one on August 18,2006 (Stop & smell the yarn).
Keep it up!

oops, Just re-read your post. My fav knitted object is the one in the photo: the Hyphen Boy Bag. I love the great color combo! This is one I would like to try one day...

My favorite item you knitted is the beautiful scarf you sent me!!!! Is that cheating because I don't remember if you posted a picture on your blog or not.

Otherwise, my favorite is the mitered bag you made for ITEII. Or maybe the carpet bag because it turned out so well and I know how much effort you put into it.

happy knitting :)

Happy Blogiversary! When I look at all your photos, I can't pick a favourite for the life of me, they're all so stunningly beautiful - there's such a vast amount of different colours and shades that cheer me up all the time!
But my favourite item that you knitted must be the "Sophie Bag" - I adore her!

Happy Blogiversary!
Posing your yarns in flowers that cordinate is really a great combination. We get to see your flowers and your yarns. It's very pretty. I especially liked the hydrangea and manos.

Judy said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary! My favorite picture is the one of the mitered felted bag you made for me (Tote Exchange) on the hammock. Thanks for hosting this contest !!

I'm impressed that you remembered your anniversary! And I wish you a very happy one. My fav. is the scarf you made for your son - the dragon (?) It's so whimsical. But I also like the bag you made for the latest exchange and your ball bands. My fav. post is your mad dash trip to New York! Cheers!

Hey Allison,
I love your pink and black bag, of course! And I love the photo you took of your lizard when she was a baby.

I have been knitting like a fiend, but woefully negligent about posting on my own blog lately. You inspire me to get back to it. How do you do it all???

PS - Thanks for turning me on to Full Thread Ahead! I sent Hollis some patterns last week for my squares hat and fingerless gloves!

Hi! First time here and saw you over at ISE and thought I'd stop by. I love your flower pictures. My parents are into gardening, and while I'm not a gardener myself, I do love flowers (and pics of them).

I'm also having a little contest over on my blog (for some stitch markers I made). Feel free to drop by and enter...everyone is welcome to enter. I'm running the contest until midnight pacific time tonight. I do the drawing tomorrow (Monday) morning.

Happy Blogiversary!! I LOVE all of your photos.. but my favorite is of your little boy (?) smelling the gerber daisey from your August 18th post. It's a GREAT photo and a great post. All of your knitted objects inspire me.. especially the wonderful ballband bags. I love the brown/cream/blue one.

Love, love, love the felted bag you did for the Intl Tote bage exchange II (or was it III?) If there is such as thing as a pattern - I am a novice knitter so I don't do well with adapting existing patterns all by my lonesome - I'd love to have it!

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!

and - glad you are back on line : )

Hi Allison....
I Love the Pink and Black Bag you did for the Tote Exchange... (it came to me) I love the way you did your pic here of it on the post in the field... Wow I will have to try the hat pattern to match the bag... :) first I have to learn to knit ....LOL All the pics here are just great...

I have two favorites -- the Lady Eleanor you knit for your mom (so beautiful) and the very classy and subtle Matthew scarf you made for the International Scarf Exchange.

Happy Blogiversary!

Hey!
I was browsing an online designer's blog and came across this:

look familiar?

What are the odds?? For the record, I like yours much better.

I had to go back to May 2006 - I recall the post on the prayer shawl, but then I like the post of the poppies too. OHHH and the triangle felted purse too - all from May 2006. If I have to pick, I guess it will be the post/pic from the prayer shawl post. A very meaningful project..
