A Winner!

I want to thank all of you who read my blog and/or entered my giveaway!  I loved reading all of your comments and I think the feedback will really help me propel this blog into the next year of awesome-ness 😀

Mystery Green

Much of the feedback centered around photos so I’ll be taking more and hopefully allowing them to make an appearance here.  I also plan to make a few additions/alterations to the layout as per some suggestions as well.  If you have a suggestion of some kind and didn’t get a chance to share it on the giveaway post, I’d still love to hear it!

Mystery Brown

And I’m sure you’re all curious who the winner of the yarny goodness is and according to Random.org the winner is Autumn Geisha!  Check out her blog, its gorgeous and her knits are drool-worthy.  I’ll be in contact via email so if you don’t get one from me by the end of today, shoot one my way k Ms. Geisha?

FO Friday: The Leetlest FO

Welcome to another FO Friday!  I know I haven’t posted an FO in ages and that’s because I haven’t actually had an FO in ages.  But today I have one for you, and even though its the leetlest FO, its still an FO and so it counts 🙂

Noro Tube

I can’t say too much about it right now as its on its way to its new home, but I can say that  it was knit up in some Noro Silk Garden that I had hanging around and finished up with a spiffy button.

Skip on over to Tami’s blog to see more FOs and maybe share your own!

WIP Wednesday: Still Chuggin’ Along

Happy Hump Day everyone!  And Happy 1 year to WIP Wednesdays!!

I haven’t done a WIP Wednesday post in a few weeks, but I promise everything is still chugging along.  And no, I have no new FOs to share either 😦  Perhaps this Friday I will!  If I get knitting time that is…life has been busy here at SillyLittleLady Headquarters.

The sweater project is still going, slowly but surely and I’m now past the main body part and am knitting the armhole space.

If the front takes as long as the back is taking, not to mention the sleeves, there is no way this’ll be done by Christmas!  I have to step up my a game a little bit.

A Year and a Month

I was waiting for my new blog’s first year anniversary and you know what?  I missed it.  I posted my first post on this here blog last June 30th and now its already August!

A lot has happened in a year, 154 blog posts, almost 400 comments(!), the complete senior college year, graduation, relocation, designs published.  All sorts of good things 🙂

I’d like to celebrate this first year and hopefully many more to come with a giveaway for all of my wonderful readers.  We all know I wouldn’t be here without you and to show my appreciation for each and every one of you, I’d like to send a lucky winner a box of knitting paraphernalia with maybe a few other extra goodies included 😉

some yarny goodness, comin' your way!

To be entered, please leave a comment on this post giving me some feedback on the blog.  What do you want to see more of?  Do you have a favorite post?  A favorite theme?  Should I do something differently? Anything at all you feel I should know 🙂

The giveaway will end in one week, on August 8th at midnight mountain time and I will draw and announce the winner on August 9th.
