We are just about to celebrate our 10th Bloggiversary!! March 20 marks the momentous occasion. It really doesn’t seem possible. Though we have had times when we wanted to quit, and certainly times when we didn’t post very often, we both still enjoy it. The blog’s original purpose continues to ring true — read our first posts!!
From Sally – March 20, 2006
My sister Susan and I decided to start a joint blog focused on our knitting; we live 1000 miles apart but we talk on the phone almost every day and most of the time we’re talking about knitting. We have absolutely no idea how to create a website, but we do know how to knit.
From Susan – March 20, 2006
Sally and I share many interests, but knitting is our passion. We decided to share a blog because, as I said to her, it’s like having a garage sale — I don’t have enough to do one of my own.

How better to celebrate than with fabulous prizes! We are giving away THREE wonderful prizes to lucky readers/commenters.
PRIZE ONE: Rack Up a Shawl
Susan’s Rakke Shawl is being given away to a lucky reader. This design by Susanna IC was knit in LOFT (color: Long Johns), and would be a beautiful accent piece for your fall or winter wardrobe:
PRIZE TWO: Feeling Plucky??
Originally purchased with the Camilla Shawl in mind, this coveted yarn from Plucky Knitter could be used for any of the wonderful multi-colored shawls found on Ravelry. Three skeins of Plucky Oxford (430 yards/115 grams, 75% merino and 25% cashmere), one each in Steelcut, Wingtips, and Hats Off:
PRIZE THREE: Tynd to Your Knitting
This yarn is confused. It thinks it is 100% merino (Woolfolk Tynd 223 yards/50 grams, color Navy), but it makes cashmere feel like sandpaper!! This yarn would make luscious fingerless or regular gloves because it feels so fabulous against the skin. Two skeins.
How to Win??
Three lucky winners will be selected at random on Thursday, March 24th by midnight and announced on March 25th.
Simply post a comment and make sure your email address is correct. We will pay shipping within the continental US.
If you have a preference for which prize or prizes you would like to win, include it in your post.
Thank you to all of our loyal readers. We have enjoyed hearing from you over the past ten years. You have encouraged us and raised our spirits on many occasions.
