On September 8, 2008 I officially moved my blog from Live Journal to WordPress and re-christened it “Tangletale”.
and thereby hangs a tale. I know, I know, heard it all before, can we just get on with it?
In honor of that event…
SNOOOOOZZZZZ…. come on, just spit it out already.
I am having a contest.
A little late, aren’t you?
After much deliberation and much spinning about of my poor little head while I tried to come up with something unique and clever, I settled on something really basic but there are 3 ways to win prizes.
1. Post a comment here. I will have a random drawing for the following prize:
A tote bag in Amy Butler fabric, handmade by me. 3 balls of Lily Chin “Gramercy” Superwash merino wool, sport weight, 127 yds, color 4103, medium gray. In the interests of full disclosure: 1 ball has been wound into a cake. Because, well, it was going to be something and then it wasn’t. Also included is a set of 5 stitch markers made from some lovely blue beads.
The bag is reversible and has pockets inside and out. The needles are not included- they’re to show off the pocket.
2. Post a comment here and tell me which post of mine is your favorite. This I hope will favor my regular readers because they deserve it. There will be a second drawing of this group for these:
A project bag also handmade by me in some lovely Asian inspired cotton plus 1 skein, 250 yds, 90% Alpaca, 10% silk, hand painted, sport wt yarn from A Star Alpaca– a small producer in Grass Valley, Ca. This is the same yarn I made the Stork’s Nest Scarf from and it’s lovely and soft.
This bag is also reversible
and it has a very clever way to close itself by inserting the long handle thru the short one. Which lets one loop it over one’s arm and feed yarn out thru the side, thus freeing up the hands to knit.
Also included are some stitch markers made from tiny milleflore beads.
3. Post a comment here and a link on your blog to the contest and I will put your name in a hat for these:
The contest ends midnight, Eastern Daylight Savings time, September 25, 2009. Everyone who posts will be entered in drawing number one. Only those who meet the criteria will be entered in the other 2 drawings. In the interest of fairness and impartiality I am asking my 9 year old non knitting granddaughter to pick the winners out of a hat.
Good Luck to All!
You will note that the project bag in Fall Colors has rabbits on it and alpaca in it. The stitch markers for #3 have a rose like design in the glass. What these things have in common is that they are all prizes in my contest. In case you were wondering.
