Hey, you know what? My exams are over! Wheepeeeeeeee! You know what else? I’ve been blogging for over six months! Whooooooa! And you know what else? Google Reader says I have 41 subscribers! Yeeeeehaw! That’s more than I ever expected!
So, you know what? That’s just way too many good things not to celebrate! In that spirit, we are having the first fridica giveaway ever!
What can you win? This fabulous book of vintage baby knitting patterns. You may have seen me go on and on about it before. I’ve made two baby sweaters from it so far and I am loving them. I am about to start the third!
There’s an interesting story connected to this book. I had been eyeing it online for a while, and very soon after I arrived in London, I decided to order it online. But something went wrong. I did the whole process, clicked buy, and the system came back saying that my order didn’t come through and I should try again. So I did. I got the same message again. I gave up and tried later at home. That time it worked. So I rested my heart and started waiting for it. You can imagine my surprize when a few days later I got a message from my building reception that I had received THREE packages. I hadn’t been ordering anything else, so this sounded smelly right away. Yup, all three copies of the book had arrived, it HAD worked all three times after all. So what should I have done? Well, the first thing I did was to open one up and examine it thoroughly (I was really excited about finally getting my hands on this book!). Then, being satisfied, I gave it some thought. I had bought the book (well, the three books!) at a bargain. I had just arrived somewhere where I had the prospect of meeting many English-speaking knitters. So I decided not to go through the hassle of returning the books, and simply wait for good opportunities to give them away. I had one at Christmas and now I have one, an even better one!
So there you go, you get one, brand new, still in its original mail package, wonderful vintage baby pattern book!
