happy blog birthday to me

today my blog is 4
balloons
thanks to S.V. for this phot

and wow I can't believe all that has happened to me in the past 4 years.

The knitting, the moving, the cats and best of all the Sock Victim.

So as a thank you for reading my blog I am giving away some sock yarn.

I have 4 socks worth to give away - one for each year of blogging

sock wool

Can you guess any of the yarns....

Leave me a comment, what you would do with the yarn, if you prefer any colour over another and next Sunday winners will be announced.

Happy Blog Birthday! (It seems rather mercenary just commenting on giveaway posts, but anyway). I enjoy reading your blog, and am happy for the good things that have happened over the last 4 years.
Silly flickr isn't letting me see any yarns, but I'm sure they're all beautiful - I always like your choices!

Happy blog birthday, Fee - I hope there are many more to come. I'm hopeless at yarn recognition. The only one I'm sure about is the top right-hand corner - Grignasco Strong Print.

Happy Blogthday! You know, I thought you'd been blogging longer than that!

Top right is Grignasco strong print, bottom right is Opal. Not sure about the other two...I think bottom left is Regia. Top left has me stumped, but since it's pink it's so not my colour anyway, heh!!

Looking forward to many more years of posting.

Happy blog anniversary! I'm hopeless at identifying yarns. The only one of these I know anything about is the one on the top right - Grignasco Strong Print. I'll make a wild guess at the pink one - a Lush yarns sock yarn.

Can't pick any of the yarns but can see the bottom left Blue almost tweedy/heathered look becoming something like the Whitby socks.

Happy Blog Birthday may there be many more birthdays to come.

I have no idea what any of them are, but the one top right fascinates me. I would make something out of The Enchanted Sole, a sock book I just got my hands on, with lots of magical patterns.

Congratulations on 4 years of blogging, I barely post in mine, so I'm impressed at how much you post!

Well done BlogGirl. Excellent. Four Years! Wow!

I am not guessing any of the yarns because the kids are out for the day with dad and grandma and I've had a couple of Camparis. I'd just embarass myself. But I do feel festive (finished a pinny for Annie!) and say "Salut!" to you and your blog!

Denyse said...

Did my comment reach you? These darn campari and oranges...

Sadie said...

Happy Birthday, Miss Fee!! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about all your doings over the years :)

and like RoseRed, I'm guessing Regia bottom left, but I'm terrible at this sort of thing!

Happy fourth blog-a-day Fee!

I've no idea about the yarns, the one top right looks like Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece the way its skeined, but those who've said Grignasco sound like they know it well.

Curiouser and curiouser...

Bottom right Hundertwasser, bottom left - is it Patonyle? Though it looks v like Opal Uni. Don't know the others, and really DON'T need more sock yarn ... but wanted to wish you happy blog birthday!
