I'm in Hawaii! Yay! My trip so far has been fantastic! We've been busy swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, hiking, exploring, eating, drinking, sleeping, resting... you get the idea. Jasmine got to take surf lessons yesterday morning and since there's not a lot of time for blogging, I thought I would share a couple pictures instead.
7am at the beach for an early lesson
There's Jasmine catching a wave!
So, how many of you have been following me since the start of my blog? Most, I hope! Yesterday, August 1st, was my blog's half year anniversary (if there is such a thing). Yay, for the YarnOnTheHouse blog! It's a 6 month old baby now!! I had very high hopes for this blog when I first started, and I have seen all my expectations succeeded and surpassed thus far. Thank you to all my faithful followers. I wouldn't be able to run this blog without your support and readership.
In honor of this small milestone, I have one of my most favorite yarn companies sponsoring the next two giveaways! Ladies and gentlemen.... it's MALABRIGO! Malabrigo is a yarn company out of Uruguay that makes the most beautiful yarns I have ever had a chance to work with, but it's not only me that loves the Malabrigo, check out the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry that has over 6,000 members! Obviously, Malabrigo is doing something right...
Malabrigo sent me five skeins of their brand spankin' new Rasta yarn to share with my followers. This yarn is amazing! It's a super bulky, 100% merino wool that is extremely soft. Take a look...
Since, they sent me five skeins to share, I've decided to keep one skein to try out (because it's research for the blog of course) and offer FOUR followers a chance to win a skein each of this incredible yarn.
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 8/8/10. That's it this week - just leave any comment you would like! Or, you can tell me how you originally found my blog if you want to! :)
I'll randomly pick the winners on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
