I am so excited!

I am hosting a contest!

This little blog is very, very close to receiving it's 200th comment!! Let me tell you, I did not expect that to be happening - and certainly not before the end of this month...I thought maybe mid-April. But readership and/or commenting has grown over the last few weeks and the time is now.

The lucky people who leave the 200th, and then the 201st comment, will win some knitting swag!
200th Comment: Oregon Felted Tote pattern and yarn.
201st Comment: Scarf or Sock Kit - pattern, yarn and needles - your choice

And, because I appreciate all the commentors who visit, I will place everyone's name from this month, in a draw for 2 seperate sock yarn or felted bowl projects (winners can choose!) I will even give you a choice of colours.

Here are some of the items you may win:

If you have been reading here for awhile, you know that I refer to myself as a Slow Knitter. Am I? Really? Perhaps I am just a considerate knitter?

This was how we spent much of yesterday - lounging, finishing Season 3 of the Sopranos and trying to get some of my Ravenclaw House Scarf done. I am sure you can imagine how difficult it is to knit with a pup sleeping under your arm! But she was too cozy, not to mention cute, to move. So little progress was made - just a 2nd set of silver stripes.

I did cast with my PS2 dyed sock yarn, you know since there are like 5 days left in the month. :-D
I am going to try Grumperina's Jaywalkers. I know, I am pretty late jumping on that wagon (ummm...2005?) but they look like fun.
I hope to get more done tonight - another cheesy episode of 24 is on and we are going to start Season 4 of Sopranos. (our plan is to catch up before the final season starts April 8th -we're enjoying it - though our language has really taken a dive!)

Good luck everyone! I can't wait to announce some prize winners!!

ETA: 200 and 201 have been written! I will contact the winners shortly. I guess I shouldn't really hold the draw until Sunday morning to be fair to everyone, I did say 'all the commentors this month'. Why must I be so impatient! What do you think?

Ok. All winners will be announced on Sunday, April 1st. -- no mention of Fools --

Is felting not the most magical thing ever? Your bag looks great! And I LOVE the pics of Kira cuddled up - what a doll!

And no, I am NOT posting because of the contest, although I think it's very exciting, and did I see a skein of Spunky Eclectic in there?

Hey there!
First off, you and the puppy pics..too damn cute.
Me and professor meowsnshitz have a similar get up when I am knitting.
The Sopranos? Love it! I was late to the party on that show..but I got all the seasons from the library and On Demand..and now I am all caught up and ready for Season 7.
And speaking of late to the party..I too am finally starting some Jaywalkers. I have one done and one to go.
Congrats on all the comments! I am not even sure how many I have right now..guess I better go check!

Aha! Except my canine knitting buddy does not understand howw to tuck in his giant arms and legs- it is kind of like knitting with a big old set of bagpipes beside you!!!!!! Good luck with your contest-

Awww, what a sweet cuddly puppy! Mine tries to headbutt my knitting away so he can get all the attention.

I so love the pics of you and little Kira cuddled up together - and hey, I never thought that you were a slow knitter, not by any means! "Considerate" is good, I wish I could be more considerate with my own knitting - I wouldn't spend hours and hours with frogging and ripping then! ;)

That dog is adorable. Go for the Jaywalkers. You'll be glad you did!

Very, very cute pup. I also have the nose under the arm with a Siberian Huskey--mostly when I am spinning. Something about me making the wheel move that seems to tell her that I am not paying attention to the proper item in the house--her!

Kira is so adorable!

I started Jaywalkers, but they were coming out too big, so I'll have to do them some other time on my size 0s.

Wish I got the comments you do!
