KNITTING GAL

July 21, 2007

Ok...here is the contest.....




I thought for my first contest I would keep it simple. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment! Simple! Make sure that I can contact you from your comment. Also if you leave a link to my page from yours about the contest I will enter you again. So lets start now and end on July 25, 2007 at 6:00 PM Eastern time when I will put all the names in a hat and pick one out.. How is that for shameless advertising!! Well seriously I love to give gifts and I want to thank all my blog friends out there for stopping by. So here we go...good luck and hope you like the goodies, this great little book from Lion Brand Yarn and two skeins of beautiful sock yarn from knit picks. (P.S. you can enter with a comment on each new posting until July 25th.)

Well, you know I comment on your posts anyway! Of course I'll link you on my next blog post - and you know me - that will usually be within a day or two tops!

trek said...

Bugs me when people come and never comment, too.

NH Knitting Mama said...

Don't count this comment again.... just wanted to let you know I linked your contest today!

Alaina said...

Greetings from a fellow Mid-Atlantic knitter!

You're planning a trip to Vermont in a few days? Lucky you! (Will you be stopping by Green Mountain Spinnery while you're there? It's definitely worth the trip.) Have a wonderful time!

Nichole said...

I saw the link to your blog on two others that I read (Amanda's and Alaina's) so I thought I'd pop on over and check yours out while I enter your contest! I've enjoyed reading your posts and seeing the fun pictures you have on your sidebar.

You can check me out at stringsandpurls DOT blogspot DOT com. I will put a link to your blog in my next post.

Nice to meet you~~~ Alana

Isn't blogging fun? I enjoyed yours and will stop back. I agree, getting comments is the BEST! Most of the links on mine are to Shetland Sheep breeders but I suppose I could add a knitting list.....

You do have a great blog! I'm glad NH Knitting Mama sent us over here. I'll be doing the same on my blog, so everyone can stop in - and leave a comment!

Bubblesknits said...

Oooh...I love those pictures of Colin in the post after this one! (sigh) :-)

Thanks for having a contest! They're always a lot of fun!

Surviving said...

I just found your blog through Channon's blog. I look forward to visiting more often.

BeadKnitter said...

Hmmm...this contest thing is getting intriguing. Perhaps I will think about having one myself.

I've been linked to your blog for a long time. I read it regularly, but only comment when I have something I feel worth saying.

Hi there,
I came over from Amanda's (NHKNittingMama) blog. She's getting the word out. I'm really loving meeting new people/knitters through this blog thing and I love when people stop by and leave comments.
I'll be happy to link to your blog from mine. I have to go out this eve, so it may not be till later tonight or tomorrow, but I'll let you know.
PS I've enjoyed looking through your blog. I notice you're in NJ. I'm in Upstate NY.

Alison Hyde said...

Ditto on the NH Knitting Mama link. Love that gift she sent you! I haven't been a dishcloth knitter, but that one definitely grabs my attention and makes me want to try it. (The one I made by casting off a cotton sweater that had never been meant to be, halfway up the back, rather than frogging the silly thing, doesn't count.)

I noticed with a chuckle that Lion Brand has their cup cozy upside down relative to the matching pattern on the cup.

Laurie said...

I LOVE contests! And I read about the contest from Alexis' site and I'll put a link on my blog tomorrow morning. =)

vegasangelbrat said...

Chan sent me too :) Definitely love a contest and your blog!! Bookmarked ya now and will link your contest to my blog!

Holly said...

I saw on a couple of swap pals from the DDoS dishcloth swap you were having a contest. Hook me up. Plus it gives me a new blog to check out. Its addictive, once you get on you don't want to get off and you go from one blog to another. You can get lost in the knitting and crochet blogging world.

Funny - looks like it *is* about 6pm EDT, isn't it? Just hopped over from Kniterations - I love checking out everyone's blogs...wish I had more time to read them all, too.

Aunt Kathy said...

I love seeing comments on my blog too, and sometimes none... perhaps I should follow suit and try a contest myself.

I love your vintage knitting photos, where do you find them all?
