One Year Old? Let's Celebrate with a Giveaway--Any Ideas?

Hello, friends!

The Knitting Muse blog will be one year old on March 26th! In order to celebrate this miniscule milestone, I would like to do another blog giveaway like last year's.

I would like some ideas for this year's giveaway, the details of which will be announced in about a week and a half. Patterns? Which desingers? Yarn? What brand? Shawls, socks, what? Since last year, I have learned much from the great knitting folks in my life, some of whom are my BKFF's, and some of whom I have never even met, such as Nancy Bush, Ann Budd and the great editors at Interweave Knits and Vogue Knitting.

Nevertheless, I want to hear from YOU! Ideas will be seriously considered from the comment form on this post. Here are some things to consider: I live in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area, I was at Sock Summit and more recently the Rose City Yarn Crawl here in town and we have many, many local dyers and designers. Just a thought!

Check the blog out on 3/26/12 for details on the giveaway.

In addition, this month I will be organizing stories and articles out to the right side bar by cateogories and re-posting some of the most popular ones. 

This is just for fun and because I believe that all knitters are full of good will and optimism. 

For those about to knit, I salute you.

Love to all of you,

Janelle of The Knitting Muse

I think you should highlight one of your favorite LYS from the Yarn Crawl, the favorite pattern you saw there and your favorite yarn to work it up in. :) Happy 1 year anniversary. :)
