Blogiversary Time!

Hey!

Today is my Blogiversary!



It's been 4 years that I have inflicted my ramblings upon the world. To celebrate, I'm having a contest drawing. Here's the prize. Click on the pictures to embiggen.


 First on the list is this beaded bracelet I made. It's done in Ndebele stitch with glass seed beads and 4mm firepolish crystals. It features a beaded toggle clasp, and is about 7 inches long.

Second is this 8oz. jar of locally made genuine Idaho Wild Huckleberry Jam.



For those of you who want to know, the ingredients are Huckleberries, Sugar, Lemon Juice, and Pectin. Believe me when I tell you this: It's absolutely delicious!

Third, I have this nice ball of Zauberball Sock Yarn.


The colorway is #1564. You get 459 yards of fingering weight 75% Merino Wool/25% Nylon.

Now, the rules.

Contest entries will be accepted from now until 5 pm pacific time Monday, March 7th.

To enter, leave a comment in this post. ONE comment per person. No anonymous comments will be accepted. So if you don't have a Blogger screen name, please put your name in the comment.

On Tuesday, March 8th, the winner will be chosen by random selection. I will have daughter Ruth draw the winner from a hat.

I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, March 8th. Within 4 days that person will need to email me their mailing address so I can send them their prize. If I don't hear from them, I will draw another winner. (This is important. I'm making you responsible for checking to see if you have won.)

Let the commenting begin!

Live long and prosper. \\//

  20. Congratulations on your four years. I enjoy reading your blog very much - - and I've enjoyed meeting and lunching with you in person.

    I won this contest a couple of years ago, so if you think I should bow out you can ignore my comment for the contest.

    The jam is wonderful. I still have fond memories of enjoing it.

  30. Happy Anniversary. I've been reading on and off for a few years now, but seldom comment. You're a talented beader, and as a fellow knitter, I like to see your work. Your three prizes are all great!

  31. Happy Blogiversary! DH would be ecstatic if I won the Huckleberry jam. One of our favorite local treats. FYI we think the best huckleberry pie is a cup of fresh or frozen huckleberries in an apple pie. When we could get out in the woods to pick we had huckleberry pancakes 3 or 4 breakfasts each week. I'm looking forward to 'Capatain Picard would wear these socks"
    I'm granjudy on ravelry
