We are having snow once again, this time it is wet and sticky so
I am praying the power stays on.

To pass the time I am trying to knit a pair of slippers. I am a horrible knitter
but thought I would give these a try.

Now for the giveaway! The fine people at Folk  magazine have offered me
a one year subscription to giveaway. I just received my first copy of this
magazine and I can't tell you how much I love it. Amazing artists, stories,recipes,
and the photos are breath taking. I am putting in a link so that you can take
a tour of this magazine digitally but the look and feel of this magazine is amazing.
, go here for a peek. How to win?
first you must be a follower, just leave a comment on this post.
Blog about this giveaway and you get a second entry.
I will chose a winner on Friday March 1st.
Good luck everyone!

Your first pic is beautiful but you can keep the snow. I am SO READY for spring.
Great give-away but count me out. I just subscribed a couple weeks ago and have not yet received my first issue. Hopefully soon.
Hugs :)

Hi Cathy, has the snow stopped in your neck of the woods? It continues here, over a foot of wet heavy snow. Enough! I have heard good things about this magazine, count me in. How's the knitting coming along? cute pattern. Greetings from Maine, Julie.
