新年快樂 … Xin Nian Kuai Le … Happy Chinese-Korean-etc. New Year!
In just a few days, it is also my blogiversary. I started this blog three years ago on January 29, 2006, and for the first time, I’m giving it a birthday party.
In honor of the occasion, and to thank you all for reading merp, I’m holding a contest! Or rather, a drawing.
Just comment on this post and tell me your Chinese zodiac sign (just the animal for your birth year, not your “inner animal” and your “secret animal” – though you can post those if you want!), and I’ll randomly select a winner, who’ll receive this skein of Noro Cash Iroha (40% silk, 30% lamb’s wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon) in an indescribably beautiful shade of blue-violet.*
Furthermore, if you were born in the year of the Ox, then it’s your year! You’ll get this pair of beaded earrings I made some time ago (first ox, first served):
(If you don’t wear earrings, we’ll talk.)
Yes, one person can win both, and yes, I’ll ship overseas.
Also, as a special treat for you all, Pisco and/or the cats will dress up or otherwise impersonate oxen and the winning zodiacal animal in a future post! They can’t wait.
I’ll choose the winner(s) Saturday night, January 31. Let the commenting begin!
*As much as I wish I could say otherwise, I cannot guarantee that this yarn is allergen free. There’s no visible pet hair at least!
