1 Year Blogoversary Giveaway

Hi Blogger Friends.  I started blogging on Jan 2, 2011.  I would like to have a giveaway.  I feel my stitching is okay, but I don't know how to do any of  the different finishings I see in blogland.  I am a very proficient crocheter and would like to crochet a lapghan for a lucky winner.  Here are the rules:

1.  You must be a follower of my blog. (old or new).

2.  Leave a comment on this post only and tell me your favorite color(s).

3.  If you post about it on your blog with a link to this post, I will give you a second entry.   Post a second comment on this post with a link to your blog.  (You don't have to have a blog to enter.)

4.  I have 144 followers right now.  If you can all help me reach 160 followers, I will pick another winner - 180 followers a third winner - 200 followers a fourth winner.  So if we can get me up to 200 followers you will have four chances to win.

5.  I will pick the winner(s) on Feb. 25.  That would have been my brother's birthday.



Here is a picture of the Lacy Granny Square that I will be making for the lapghan(s).  I will be making them with varigated yarn with coordinating solids.  The size will be 50 x 50.
I started making these squares in 1986 and have made over 3,000 of them.  Needless to say, they are my favorite squares to make.  I have made over 50 afghans with this pattern as gifts and I have also sold about 50.



Good luck everybody.     Linda

Hi Linda,

Lovely, generous giveaway which I will post on the sidebar of my blog but I will pass on entering as I am allergic to wool (I break out in an embarrassingly red rash). Good luck to everyone, though.

Hugs, Kaye xoxoxox

If I'm fortunate enough to win, can I request the afghan for my friend? She has this big heart and doesn't have time to do something like that for herself and I think she will freak to receive your beautiful piece. :D
