Happy Blogiversary to me!

5 May

A happy birthday to my little blog! Just about this time last year, the Sockapalooza 4 Blog got so much traffic that it threw up its virtual hands in horror and gave up the ghost, thereby forcing us blogless wonders into a moment of decision. I opted for starting my own blog, and I’m so very glad I did!

Now, according to the grand tradition of blogging, I am having a Blogiversary competition, and I will be giving away something lovely, but I will not be using the random number generator. If you want to dip into my stash, you are gonna have to work for it, chickens!

I want to see your LYS (edited for Cathy’s benefit: that would be Local Yarn Shop). Starting from the moment I hit “Publish” on this post, you guys have two (2) weeks to come up with a sock pic including your LYS and post it on your own blog. When you have done so, leave a comment on this post, making sure you include your blog’s URL for me so I can see your pic. Bonus points for anyone who gets a staff member to hold the sock. Silliness is encouraged. On 19th May I will judge the pics and decide who wins the sock yarn.

I will post a pic of my own lovely little LYS over over the next few days, so drop back in and take a look later this week.

    This is great contest idea, but encouraging Karen to be silly is ill-advised. Can’t put that genie back in the bottle! (Love ya, Mayhem!!)

    I love your competition idea – and a little bad voice in the back of my head is working out how to con the saleslady of questionable temperament into allowing some silliness – coz it’s no fun trying it on with someone who needs no persuading!!!

    Happy Blogiversary! It occurred to me the other day that Webs had become my LYS, because that’s the only place I’ve bought yarn in person since December. But I won’t be visiting in the next two weeks, nor am I knitting socks at the moment. However, I can’t wait to see all the pictures! It sounds like a great idea for a contest!!
