Blogaversary Contest

It's that time again--Balkan Style is turning two and we want to celebrate! To help ring in the new year and to help you get organized, we are having a draw for some handmade goodies. Up for grabs:
Three project bags for your knitting-on-the-go. Made of 100% cotton and measuring approximately 10"x12", these bags will keep your knitting tidy whether you're storing several WIP's or taking them along with you to your knit group. Yarn gets pulled out through the drawstring top while yarn ball stays neatly inside.
Also, the winner will receive these gold toned, stork shaped embroidery scissors. If you're anything like me and losing your little scissors all the time, these little guys will certainly help make sure that you don't misplace them anywhere again.
Leave us a comment and using a random number generator, we'll choose a winner and make the announcement on Friday, January 16. Good luck!

Hope you're having a great day! :D

Beth Lower said...

The bags are beautiful...can't have to many...and I know exactly what you mean about the scissors. I frankly think I have a family of Borrower's in my house who keep stealing mine!

Dandy said...

the bags are gorgeous... I'd love to win one.. and yes one can never have to many scissors...lol

I'm going to post a link to the contest on my blog ;)

Katherine said...

Oh so cute - did you make them?

Happy Blogiversary you guys! I'm so glad you're out here!

Pandora's Box of FIber said...

Happy Blogiversary!

Out of curiosity, are those bags thick enough to withstand the metal needles of doom? (just asking....)

I hope you have a great time today, and also hope I get a chance to win a nifty bag of goodness!

Those are great looking bags! Yeah, I'm always looking for my scissors, they are never where I thought they should be. :o)

Happy Blogiversary!

The fabric on the bottom of those bags is slick.

Liz said...

No definately pick me, I love it!

Jenny said...

Well this has certainly convinced me to stop lurking silently. Those bags are really lovely and would look great with my knitting in them...

jcnemecek said...

What a great idea. I could definitely use a few of these.

Kittenears said...

Oh what a wonderful idea! I love finding new blogs to read, and the possibility of winning pretty embroidery scissors to replace the old pair my darling husband keeps using to cut packaging tape....

What a lovely pair!

And such gorgeous bags, too. Ok, I'm off to stalk the rest of your posts.

P.S. I'm Kittenears on Ravelry

There's nothing like being beautiful and useful. Not that I'm either, of course, but the bags and scissors certainly are.

Pick me, pick me. I love the bags and my husband says I'm always walking around with my knitting in crummy shoppings bags and look like a bag lady. If I win, I can look like an elegant bag lady. The scissors are also ultra cool.

Happy Blogaversary. I stumbled onto your site via Knitting Pattern Central. Your 2008 Newfie-style mitts pattern, featured earlier this week on KPC, has ignited much nostalgia on our family Facebook pages as our Mums used to give us and our daughters these mitts each Christmas. Several of our Mums are no longer with us and this discussion has been a wonderful way to remember them. Thanks for the memories; hope your blog is around for many years for you to make loads of memories for you.

I am a pitifully new knitter, and if I have a fourth baby someday, Nadine is at the top of my name list. I think for those reasons your random number generator should pick me. pretty please;)
