happy birthday, YarnOnTheHouse

If you haven’t yet heard of YarnOnTheHouse, where have you been living? :)

This special blog, dedicated almost exclusively to regular yarn giveaways, has been running for a year now. I find it fascinating that such a concept has managed not only to survive but to flourish, and I admire Ve’s energy in bringing us interesting interviews with people from our industry and gifts of yarny goodness at such a crazy pace!

While I’ve been super-lucky with some other giveaways recently, I’ve never won anything at YOTH, and I don’t even enter every giveaway. But I always stop by to see what’s new and come away with great ideas from our fellow-knitters (such as these adorable tiny swatches! wouldn’t you just love a yarn shop that has a swatch for every single yarn and colourway they sell?).

This week, in celebration of their birthday, YOTH is giving away all unclaimed yarn from 2010 (pictured above) to one unbelievably lucky person. You can enter by becoming an official follower of the blog, or (is there anything easier in the world?) by joining their Ravelry group.

Just thought I’d let you know… :)

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. Hum, I live outside of the Milk Way I guess… Thanks for the announcement! I’m already a fan! I love the concept. My last giveaway (very small) was so exciting! I already look forward to next year! Or maybe I should do it more often! Just for the sake of giving… I’ll sleep on it ;-)
