Bloggiversary #2

It's my second Blog Anniversary today. Wow. I certainly did not think I'd be still doing this two years later! But it does become part of the general crafting routine to blog, same as keeping the stash tidy and...err, shopping. And I have made many, many friends through keeping a blog and being part of the internet community, both in the UK and abroad, and been fortunate enough to meet several of you in the flesh. So for me, blogging has been a life enhancing experience, and you can't have too many of these, no? So thank you all. *love*

And seeing it's a bloggiversary, there has to be a contest, no? I was at a bit of a loss as to what to use as a contest question, especially as I had a big contest only a few weeks ago, but a comment left by Helen of the amazing scarves and jigsaws (look in the sidebar for the jigsaws) gave me an idea.

If you're a regular reader, you know I have a weakness for Rowan Kid Classic.



I first came across a ball of this in a mixed bag I found in a charity shop, and have been a devotee ever since.




There have been a LOT of good sales recently, like the 50% off one at Jenners, the 50% off one at John Lewis....



And 30% off at the soon-to-be-deeply-missed HandKnits.



So, easy contest, not requiring the intense mental input of the Glass Spinning Wheel Contest. How many balls of Kid Classic do I currently own, and in how many different colours? Remember, I hoover up odd balls when I see them at a good discount, because I like stripes and colour blocks. It's not just in sweater sized quantities.

Prize(s)? Well, not sure yet. It may be sock yarn, or if I have something suitable that I know you'd like there may be larger quantities involved. There will be a fibre option for spinners if you prefer. We'll see! (But it won't be Kid Classic, lol.)

Just leave me a comment giving me your best guess. Contest will close on Friday midnight GMT. Have fun!

If the prize isn't Kid Classic, I'm not going to enter :( No, seriously, 47 balls in 10 colours.

Happy Bloggiversary! I won a gorgeous rpoze in your last competition, so I'm not going to enter this time. I bet it is a case of "dozens" and "lots", though.

My guess is 11 colours and 38 balls, but however many I very am envious! I recently knitted the little scarf that was a Rowan members gift in Kidsilk from some time back, its wonderful and I'll definitely be making more.
Happy Anniversary.
