KNITTING GAL

February 15, 2008

One thousand approaching!


I just noticed that my blog is appraoching 1000 hits!!!! Wow am I excited about that. I think a contest is in order for that mile marker. Everyone so enjoyed the books last time that I think I will do that again. I have two great books in mind, so if you love knitting books enter my 1000 hits contest. Here are the rules:

1. Post a comment
2. Post a link to your blog

That is it-easy peasy! I will be giving away two great books(see below) so join in and spread the word. You only need to post once and I will draw names at midnight February 29th in honor of leap year.

I'm so glad to see you're back and going 150 mph. And, is that Oliver's handsome face on that bookcover? Since I won your last contest, please just pass me by on this one. Thanks!

Lisa said...

Donna how could I not comment, 1000 posts is a fantastic effort, I've just reached 300 in less than a year. Thanks for your wonderful comment about my blog, my sewing, my grandmother and my village life. The books you have chosen are great, especially the lace one, I just can't get enough of lace knitting but my old dog would love to wander around showing off a new wardrobe I'm sure. Congrats.

Grace Yaskovic said...

Susan said...

Heather said...

Wow, 1000 hits! I am not sure how to see how many hits I have. Must figure that out. Glad to see you back and posting. Now I am confused do I link your contest on my blog or leave a link to my blog. Either way I will do both. I have already posted for today and if you go to my blog you will see that I shouldn't even be here commenting...LOL! So tomorrow's post will have a link to you in it!

chanknits said...

Oooh! Congrats! I'll try to remember to link to you tomorrow. I know! I'll email myself...

Sissy and Mugsy also want to lobby for Oliver's bedspace. Of course, my chiropractor, a great dog lover too, would say you're a wise woman!

Thanks for the comment you left!! ANd for adding my comment--even tho I said POSTS instead of hits--ack--I'm so dense! I'm linking you to my net post and you will be on my sidebar now--although nobody much reads me, so it'll be mainly just "between us!;-

Great going!

Congrats on 1000 hits!!! I don't have my own blog as yet - I'm a little busy with 3 yr old triplets and my ever-growing knitting addiction combined with my love of reading knitting blogs. It's a wonder my house ever gets clean:-).

No need to enter me in the contest (I won a past one...your generosity should be spread around!) I just wanted to stop by and say it's good to see you back...I've missed your posts and I've missed seeing Oliver's beautiful face!
