Keep Calm and Crochet On U.K’s 4th Blog Anniversary Celebration | January 2018


Four years… Keep Calm and Crochet On U.K is 4 years old today! I simply can’t believe it! 

I swear someone has put time on fast forward! I only started blogging last week surely…but I suppose realistically so much has happened in that time, both personally and professionally, that it must be four years (four years!).

My life is a bit of a juggling act with work, a home, a husband, two young girls and my designing but one of the things that helps keep me grounded is that Wednesday is blog post day! I never realised I would enjoy blogging quite as much as I do until I really got into it and I have to say it has opened up opportunities that I’d never imagined. One of the highlights definitely being when I got invited as a ‘guest blogger’ to London for the Knitting and Stitching Show and got my very own press badge!

Blogging for me is a way to connect with like-minded people (I’m not really near any other crocheters that I can talk crochet to all the time – booooo) and it’s a wonderful feeling that I have a space where I can regularly share my experiences or ideas to people that (hopefully) want to  hear about it.

I don’t say it often enough but I just really want to say that I appreciate the time you each take to visit my blog and especially when you leave me comments and feedback. I was so worried that the only person reading would be my mum (hey mum!) when I first started, so it’s so nice to know that there are people out their reading and that you seem to join me in my love for all things crochet! I’d also like to thank you to those of you that have shared my blog your friends and family too.

And because you, my lovely constant readers, are so wonderfully supportive I wanted to run a great series of giveaways for you with some fabulous prizes donated by lots of wonderful companies and people I worked with last year. Soooooooo…


Week 1 is sponsored by two of the wonderful magazine’s I have had the pleasure to work with; one of the prizes will be given away in this blog post today and another one on Saturday (so make sure you pop back then too).

To start the proceedings we have LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine who have generously donated the three most recent copies of the magazine for one lucky reader.


If you are not not familiar with LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine it’s a magazine that comes with needles, hook and yarn for the knitting and crochet patterns inside of the magazine. They also have great articles, competitions and tips.  In these particular issues, up for grabs, there’s some of my favourite designs; including Bruno the Bear and Santa, Superhero girl and bracelets, and the latest issue featuring Princess Jessica and the love tokens

I know you will love this magazine if you’ve not tried it before and I’m super happy to be able to offer THREE ISSUES as our first giveaway prize! 

Here’s how you can enter:

To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post telling me why you’d like to win the prize – simples!

To gain a sneaky extra entry, head on over to my KCACOUK Facebook page, leave a comment under the post about this contest and ‘like’ the page (if you haven’t already). And to gain another extra entry, why not pop over to @KCACOUK on Instagram, become a follower, and leave a comment under the post about this competition.

The contest is open from RIGHT NOW until midday (UK-time) on Wednesday 7th February 2018. The winner will be selected using a random number generator and I will need to be supplied with a full postal name and address to send out the prize. If efforts to contact the winner remain unsuccessful after a week, an alternative winner will be randomly selected.

This giveaway is open to residents of the United Kingdom only.  However other prizes in this giveaway will be available internationally.

I would like to thank LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine again for their generosity in sponsoring my 4 year Blog Anniversary. 

Don’t forget to pop back on Saturday for another prize giveaway!

Until next time; keep calm and crochet on my friends xx

  1. It would be so thrilling to win these magazines. I’m in the US and my favorite crochet magazines are in the UK, but it’s so expensive to get a subscription here.

  2. I’d love to win the magazines to finally be able to see your patterns in print. Happy 4th blogiversary Heather!

  3. I would love to win these magazines because winning anything is such a wonderfully joyful experience. Also I love Crochet and take such delight in my craft magazines. Happy 4th!!

  4. I love your site, it’s fantastic to see your patterns and not worry whether they’re in UK or US terms. Keep up the good work. xx I’d love to win these mags. It’s a great way for someone like me (i rely on benefits as i’m disabled) to try them.

  5. Winning these Knitting and Crocheting Magazines and kits would be fabulous!!! The patterns shown on the covers are all adorable. I love make toys for my nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews and these would make a wonderful addition to their collection. Like everyone, I also would love to win this great prize. How generous of you.

  6. Congratulations on 4 years. Winning these would mean getting a head start on Christmas bits for the grandchildren and a gentle browse through the other two.

  7. Massive congrats for reaching your 4th Blogiversary – blogging is such a rabbit hole to fall down sometimes isn’t it? But it does provide such a great way to ‘meet’ like minded people. I just can’t believe it’s taken me 4 years to find your blog!

  8. Why have I not seen you before?! When I first started blogging I was desperate to find other crocheters and there seemed so few good ones on wordpress! I think I must have been looking wrong!! 😀
    Congrats on four years. Mine will be three in the spring.
    I have never read an issue of Knitting & Crochet!!
