My 100th Post (and a giveaway)!!!


Whoop whoop, it’s hard to believe this is my 100th blog post!!! And last week WordPress kindly informed me it was my two year anniversary with the platform. So that’s 100 posts in 2 years, That’s roughly one post a week for the last two years.

I never would have guessed when I started blogging that I would get this far. A lot in my life has changed since I started blogging – I got married, I left my job and I went back to college to retrained as a librarian. And my knitting has evolved over those two years now, I’ve learned new techniques and discovered a love of knitting lace. So I feel that’s its a good time to mark all that has been going on with a little giveaway.

100th post 002As an Irish crafter it makes sense to me to include some Irish prizes, so I have chosen two great prizes. The first prize is a skein of Coolree Fingering Weight Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere in colourway Byzantium. I have knit three shawls with this yarn already, Blight, Sunflower and Renita, and promise you that it is beautiful to knit with.

The second prize is a copy of Carol Feller‘s beautiful book Contemporary Irish Knits which “celebrates the rich tradition of Irish knitting”. So that’s a chance to win one of two great prizes!!

So all you have to do to win is:

  • Follow my blog through WordPress (when logged in to WordPress click the follow button on the top left of your screen)
  • Follow my blog via email (link at the bottom right of the homepage)
  • And/or ‘like’ my Facebook Page
  • (If you already follow my blog/like my Facebook page let me know in the comments and I’ll include you too 😉 )

Each of these actions is one entry in the giveaway.

The giveaway ends Midnight GMT, Friday 5th August. I’ll choose the winner using a random number generator and announce it in two weeks time, so check back on Saturday October 5th. I’ll contact the winner via email/Facebook to arrange to post them their prize (I’ll post to anywhere). And feel free to share this post with anyone you think would enjoy these prizes.

And most of all thank you for reading my blog over the last two years and 100 posts!

    • Thanks Hilary, a small tip – I sometimes write up a bunch of my projects at the same time and then publish them once or twice a week. I can’t wait to read your blog too.

    • Thanks Liz, if you already have a WordPress account and you are logged in you should see a ‘follow’ button in the top left-hand corner of the screen when you visit my (or any other WordPress) blog. I hope that helps.

  4. First I just have to say Congratulations on your 100th post and on 2 years blogging! I just had to start following your blog and I also read some of your back posts. I have to say I loved reading about your Chevron Baby blanket, I was just about to cast on for a Chevron Baby blanket myself for my sister, though mine will look nowhere near as lovely as yours I’m sure!
