21st September will see the 5th anniversary of this blog, and boy has time flown!

It's funny to look back and see how my blog voice has changed and how blogging has transformed my life and developed my business. Everything has grown from here and all the things that you know about me today, my Hat designing, travelling and family life, has been lived through these posts.

It's both surreal and comforting.

To celebrate and thank you for 5 years of support, I've a couple of little treats for you!

Firstly, there's a coupon code that can be used against the purchase of any of my single patterns for a 20% discount. Simply enter the code woolly5yrson and the discount will be deducted before checkout. The code is valid from today until 25th September, so go for it!

Secondly, there's a wee competition where you can win yourself a copy of each of my book PDF's! Yep indeedy, there will be 3 winners, and each will receive a copy of Going Straight, Wee Woolly Toppers and Twisted Woolly Toppers. The full 3 in digital format. And if you happen to win and have one of them already, I'll happily gift your duplicate copy to a chosen friend or offer the same value in single patterns. You can't lose.

To enter the competition, all you need to do is to leave me a comment here, telling me how you fell in love with knitting. It can be smart or funny or downright strange. Like the promotion above, it runs through until 25th September, 9 days from now.I look forward to hearing your stories!

Enjoy, and thank you again for all your support over the years. Here's to another 5 years of woolly Hatness!

Edited to add: This competition is now closed. The 3 winners were chosen using a randon number selector and notified by 5th October. Thanks for all your comments - I really enjoyed reading them!
