If you know me at all, you know I am not a patient person, which is why I tend to make very small projects and don't finish big ones.
I was visiting knitterofhats speaks, since she's left so many lovely comments trying to win my skein of yarn. If you visit her blog too, you'll notice the first post there is another giveaway called One World One Heart. Turns out it's a worldwide blog hop where the participants offer door prizes to active bloggers who visit & comment on their blogs. I've been whisked around the world ever since, and have even found a few new blogs to add to my reader.
The blog hop is open to new participants until February 12th, but I won't be participating because I don't know what I would give away! The door prizes will be awarded on February 17th, and I can't wait to see if I've won anything.
This brings me back to my original theme of impatience. I'm very impatient to give away that skein of yarn! When I started the contest back in January, I gave it a little over two months to run, thinking it might take that long to get the required 3 entries. Of course, I wasn't counting on the generosity of friends, one in particular who linked the contest on Reddit. My blog hits have fallen significantly since that "normal Tuesday", but I've still received over 50 comments in less than a month.
I'm not going to cut the contest short, but I do hope all commenters have the patience to wait and see if they've won!
