Happy Blogoversary

Today this little blog is officially one year old and in honour of the occasion, I allowed myself to fall off the stash wagon and had a trip to Ipswich to check out Purl and Co. What a fab shop, although not the easiest of places to find if like me, you don't know Ipswich. Still I bumped into a very lovely lady (wearing a rather nice hand knit scarf) who overheard me asking directions and very kindly took me along and pointed out the right road. Aren't we knitters fabulous? It really made my day.Of course I couldn't visit a new shop without making at least one purchase and they had a great alternative selection to anything I can get around Colchester. So I treated myself to some Colinette Point 5 in shade Florentina - the same shade as I knitted the sockapalooza socks in that I loved so much. I should be able to get a funky new hat from the skein. Then I spotted a ball of Noro Cash Iroha on special, how could I refuse? So together with a ball of the Silk Garden to give a nice colour contrast I'm going to make a new bag and in the spirit of kharma, I'm offering it out into the world.Although I mostly blog for myself, I know there are a few of you that return and sometimes you even comment. Thank you for putting up with my meandering thoughts and occasional whinges, I'd like to give something back to you. I'll put the name of everyone who comments on this post into a hat on the 15th April and the lucky winner will be the recipient of a Bearium Necessities original bag. I might even post some sneaky peaks of the finished item as it grows.

Happy Blogiversary! Purl and Co really makes a change from Franklins doesn't it? I visited for the first time last Saturday and was very impressed!

Love the socks! Enjoy reading your blog (though I hate that word - maybe it stands for something?) - and your model is the cutest boy on two legs...
Saw the original bag in the making so know the lucky winner will be thrilled.
