Today is a whole year since my first post on 22nd March 2012.
I felt that it ought to be marked in some way.
Now some people have a special giveaway but since I have just had one of those, I thought maybe I should do something slightly different.
I thought of a giveaway where I made a small item for everyone who entered, as in a way it always seems a shame to have to chose just one person to win, but as I have over one hundred followers and quite a large number entered my last giveaway, I thought that that might have proved too big a liability.
So I thought that maybe I could offer to make a bookmark for the ten people who have commented most frequently on my blog.
Well I discovered that WordPress only tell me the ‘top seven recent commentators’ and that includes me, so I am going to choose those six people.
If you are one of the top six people who have commented (names below) over this last year, if you would like, I am prepared to make you one of my crochet cotton bookmarks in a colour of your choice.
Since I want to make more small items in crochet cotton, you can choose any colour, even ones I don’t have at present, as that will give me an excuse to buy more colours. 🙂
You can also choose either #20 (fine) or #10 (slightly thicker) cotton.
The red bookmark is made in #20 and the variegated cream one in #10.
the one at the bottom on the left is the one made in #10 here.
It is worth noting that the ‘pineapple’ bookmark is naturally bigger than the ‘fan’ one.
I am also prepared to include any of the ‘cross’ bookmarks as seen here hanging from the branches of my Easter Tree.
More details of the cross bookmarks on Monday.
The six most frequent recent commenters on my blog have been:-
- Nice piece of work “Yes I know you won the giveaway, so already have two bookmarks but you are eligible to request another if you wish.”
- The Little Room of Rachell
(They all have great blogs of their own!)
If you are one of the six people listed and you would like a bookmark just leave a comment below telling me which bookmark you would like and what colour you would like and whether you want it in the #20 or #10 cotton. When I have made it I will be in touch for a postal address.

I am really enjoying using crochet cotton to make things as it doesn’t catch like the acrylic yarn or the DK cotton yarn I have been using. However I can only see me making small items as I cannot imagine that I would have the dedication to say spend eighteen months making a lace bedcover like my mother did for me.
And I think the eighteen months was for the single bed size one, not including the time it took to enlarge it to fit a five foot bed. 🙂
