Awooga, awooga, we interrupt this blog

G'day all!

This post is brought to you by ten.

Ten what?

Ten green bottles, hanging on the wall?

Ten toes? (Sorry, no pic because my toes are filthy after spending half of summer in the garden in my Tevas... and DH's toes are hidden in shoes and aren't coming out for love nor money!)

Ten t'riffic flowers?

Hmm, that photo is a bit fuzzy...


Ten homegrown strawberries?

Tiny tasty berries!


Ten skeins of yarn?

Acquired this year.  Oops.


Ten quilts?

I forgot one... sorry, left out quilt,
two are quilted items, not quilts - I cheated!


Ten finished objects?  (Ahem, too lazy to find these, though I certainly have them.  Anyway, who wants to see pairs of well loved socks?  No, you are in luck, I have ten finished tops to share with you.  I've knitted all bar one whilst in Seattle!)



Ten works in progress?



There were ten in the bed and the little one said?

Why the focus on ten?

Can you guess why?

Leave a comment and tell me why you think I'm focussing on ten.  I'll do a draw on hmm, let's say Saturday 23 August at 9pm Pacific Daylight Time or whatever the local thing is at the moment from all the comments.  There will be something nice in it for you, a skein of yarn - I've got some nice undyed merino/cashmere/silk blend (I can dye stuff too!) plus lots of stash as long as you like mermiady colours - a little quilted thing, three Liberty fat quarters, a printed/matted picture?  Depends on what you like.  But you have to leave a comment to be in the draw.

CONTEST NOW CLOSED.  Sorry for the wait on the draw, I am frantically busy, having forgotten about DH's birthday BBQ....  House cleaning waits for no blog this time around!

anon!

  2. Could it be your ten year blogging anniversary? In any case, you've been at it for a long time. Although I rarely comment I read every post with interest. Congratulations!

  3. I love this post. It's very cheerful and offbeat. ;-) I have 2 guesses.

    1. Your 10th Wedding Anniversary?
    2. 10 years in the United States?

    I'm not sure if you still need my email addy in the post if I post via Google+ profile?

    P.S. I'm Darcerenity on Rav.
