Thank you everyone for your participation and birthday wishes! I’m another year older and hopefully another year wiser. J As we head into the holiday weekend, I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
By the way, if you haven’t finished your holiday shopping and still need gift ideas, why not knit your loved one something special this year? There’s still time and I’ve got some really neat quick-knits that would make great stocking-stuffers! Check out these quick-knit patterns.
It’s been several years since I’ve written a blog post. If I can recall, my last one was when I had recently broken my ankle (eek!). The thought of that ordeal still makes me nauseous.
A lot has happened since then and even though I haven’t been keeping up with my blog, I have been occasionally updating the Stitchinary. So for those of you who are still subscribed to Purl Avenue, first THANK YOU for staying in touch, and second, you should be getting notifications for recently added stitch patterns. If you’re not subscribed to the blog, please do so or follow on Facebook as well as Instagram. Another thing, the website has gotten a face lift earlier this year so hopefully the new layout will improve your user experience when visiting purlavenue.com.
OK, I’d like to point out that today is December 10th and it is exactly 10 days until my birthday. What better way to celebrate my return to the blogging world and my birthday than with a giveaway? Like I had mentioned earlier, even though I haven’t written a blog post in a while, I have been active in social media. And it has become a tradition over the years to do a giveaway for my birthday. So starting today, you can enter this year’s Birthday Giveaway on Instagram (sorry Facebook followers).
