4KCBWDAY5: Something Different – win a pair of Karbonz Circs

Day Five (Friday April 26th): Something A Bit Different
It’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog. You may choose to create a podcast, or vlog, create a wordless post or write in verse. You’ve already stretched your wings with an infographic, now it’s time to freestyle. You can post on any topic you like, but be sure to post in a style different from your usual blog presentation. There’s not too much guidance for this one simply because the more varied the posts are on this day, the wider the sources of information for other bloggers will be. Bonus points if you manage to work your house animal in somehow.

Here’s something a bit different to celebrate Knit Crochet Blog Week. We  are giving one pair of Karbonz Circular Needles, in any size that we have in stock, to one lucky winner. I am loving these needles and cannot recommend them enough, so here’s a chance for you to try them.

Solve the crossword puzzle then read off the GREY shaded squares…
