Getaway~Giveaway

Time has come for walking on the beach,balmy ocean breezes & falling asleep to the sound of the tide reaching the shore...endless hours of knitting & photographing are ahead...I am feeling so good & I want to share that feeling...6 months ago I began this blogging adventure and have never looked back-I have made wonderful friends and have had endless amounts of creative stimulation....and my 29th ;-) birthday is 13 days away...so it's time to celebrate!
This Noro blossom is beautiful...don't you agree? A rainbow of amazing colors...what would you
create with it if it was yours?
IT COULD BE YOURS-I'M GIVING THIS AWAY-just leave me a COMMENT...here on the blog and when I return from vacation we'll have a little official drawing from all the names (faithful and lurkers alike!)...the winner will be notified via email...
There will be some other wonderful surprises along with the Noro...a little Longaberger basket may be involved here,also!!
See you in 1 week...

Amazing, how many of us are the same age! Who'd have thought that everyone would be celebrating their 29th this year. O.K. And next year, and the next...

Happy birthday and enjoy your vacation!

MINItron said...

I don't think I've ever seen that particular Noro yarn. It looks pretty awesome.

Mr Puffy said...

Oh, 29, that's a good age to be! At least I think it is - I can't remember that far back.

I have never understood the convention of giving gifts on one's birthday - but far be it for me not to enter. Count me in!

Have a wonderful wonderful wonderful time. I can almost feel the sand under my toes.

yelley said...

Great pictures. I wonder what the give away will be, when knitted up?

verena said...

I don't quite know how this works, it's the first time I'm replying. IT's nice of you to give it away especially since the yarn is very beautiful. I had thought lately of doing a poppy version with cash iroha and blossom and wondered whether blossom is warmer than Silk garden which I find very cold. I have knitted poppy before with a banana yarn since cash iroha wasn't available in New Zealand then. But the whole jersey is simply too cold so I can only wear it in the NZ summers! Beutiful striping though (I used a grey banana silk and Noro silk garden #211, will put pictures on flickr and ravelry soon).
Please sign me up for an entry am happy to pay for shipping!

I LOVE the Noro Blossom and I don't think I've seen that colorway.

sandrajackson9 said...

That Blossom really needs me to make it into a hat or a neck warmer. How nice to be able to wear something called "Blossom" during the long, cold winter.

Hannah Tomoko said...

What a generous give-away! I don't know if I'd be able to do anything with the yarn.... I'd just want to pet it!

Heathere Willoughby said...

I admit, I'm a lurker.... But I love the colors and would love to have them!

Marie said...

I hope you have a fab vacation and a great birthday!

I think I would make a purse out of the yarn if it was mine to do with as I liked.

äiti said...

A hat or scarf, just for me, for a change :-)

wearyrn said...

Hope you have had a great and restful vacation. Is it too late to sign up for the yarn?
Blessings,

guidedbywire@baymoon.com said...

Oh, benevolent Noro goddess.. bestow Blossom lushness on a starving student who could use a wooly hug long about now. Perhaps I could make a snuggly hat to keep my brain warm. I need all the help I can get!

Scusi said...

Just discovered your blog through Ravelry and wanted to join in for the free Noro giveaway. It's beautiful yarn, such lovely colours. I was always a Rowan girl but have used Noro twice now and I'm hooked.

thanks, carol

Hope you had a great vacation. This yarn is gorgeous. I would think of a purse too, maybe felted and combined with other yarns.
Thanks for the Giveaway.
