Join the fun!

Time for another contest!

Up for grabs:

  1. Skein of Scout’s Swag from my stash & choice of one of my published  patterns
  2. Set of stitchmarkers & choice of one of my published  patterns
  3. Choice of one of my published  patterns

What do you have to do?

Leave a comment on this post, including some way of contacting you should you win (Rav name, link to your blog, email) that includes both of the following:

  • What day do you think I’ll get the Haw vest (tentatively named You’ve Got Red On You) in the mail & the pattern emailed?
  • What knitting book(s) would you like to see me review?

The three people with the correct day or closest to it will win;  I’ll use a random number generator to pick the order if there are ties.  The contest ends the day I do mail the vest.

Right now I’m about 25% or a bit more done with the knitting, and I started knitting it Monday.  It’s due to Jaala at Knitcircus on June 21st;  I’m planning on mailing it flat rate priority, from California to Wisconsin.

I’m not going to post any progress info after this post (nor update my project page in Ravelry) until I mail the vest.

I’ve ‘watched’ four movies today while working on it.

  • Angel Heart
  • Golden Compass
  • Jurassic Park 3

Yep, that’s only three.  Guess the last movie (there’s a clue in this post) and you get an extra entry.

    I’m going to guess that you will mail it on June 15th.
    I’ll ask that you review Handknit Holidays: Knitting Year-Round for Christmas, Hanukkah and Solstice.

    And my guess for movie #4 is Shaun of the Dead!

    Shaun of the Dead is an awesome movie. Watched it like 3 weeks ago. And am now working my way through the Jurrasic Park movies, coincidentally (just watched the first one).

    I’m guessing you’ll mail on the 14th. That way it has plenty of time to get there!

    I’d love to know what you think of Sock Innovation. I hear it’s a good book 🙂

    I’m helenlam on Rav. My guess on mailing date is June 16th and the movie guess is Shaun of the Dead.

  • Amy June 10, 2010, 6:50 am

    I would like you to review Crazy Lace by Myra Wood. I think you will mail your vest to Jaala on June 17. And, I believe the movie is Shaun of the Dead, based on the clue in your post.
    Thanks for the giveaway! knitterofhats on Ravelry

    I think you’ll mail it on the 15th, and I’d like to see you review Clara Parkes Book of Yarn!

    My movie guess is You’ve Got Mail.

    I think you’ll mail it on the 17th,
    I’d like to see you review Judy Becker’s new book when it comes out in the fall.
    My guess on the movie is crazy heart.

  • Tracy June 10, 2010, 9:20 am

    I’m guessing you’re going to crank it out by the 14th. You probably got at least ten percent of it knit while watching Shaun of the Dead! I’d like to see you review Cookie A.’s new book when it comes out in the fall.

  • Debbie S June 10, 2010, 12:47 pm

    I’m going to guess you’ll be done and mailed out by the 15th. I’d love a review of Cookie A’s new book this fall. And I have no idea about the movie, so I’ll go with Shaun of the Dead, too. 🙂

    June 17
    Any new knitting books coming out soon. Cookie A’s next sock book (just scrolled up and realized I’m not the only one interested). 🙂 I plan to buy it any way. Anything coming out this summer or fall since I have not viewed any of those yet.

  • Knittingdancer on Ravelry June 10, 2010, 1:06 pm

    I pick June 18th is the day you will mail the vest.

  • Connie June 10, 2010, 4:23 pm

    I’m going to go with the 19th as the day you will mail the pattern – because something always happens at the last minute. I would love to have you review any of the newest knitting books out.

  • Deborah June 11, 2010, 1:37 am

    I think June18th. The movie is You Got Mail! And the book review Think Outside the Sox

  • Lynnette on Ravelry June 11, 2010, 5:37 pm

    I’m going to guess the 17th for mailing date (because guessing the 23rd would be rude) . I’m going to say you should review “Making Mathematics with Needlework; Ten Papers and Ten Projects”, because I really want to read that one.

  • Ginny June 12, 2010, 6:43 am

    I think you’ll get it mailed on the 17th. I’d also love a review of Cookie A’s new book, and I also think the movie is Shaun of the Dead. I’m Im08Just97Me on Ravelry 🙂

  • Chia T June 12, 2010, 1:04 pm

    I’m guessing June 14th. Those tomatoes look yummy! I’m still waiting for mine to ripen. By the way the John Adams miniseries that they did on HBO is really good so far. A good 6 hours or so of viewing pleasure.

    I’d like to see a review of Lily Chin’s Power Cables coming out.

    Thanks! monkalicious on Ravelry

  • Rachelle Crosbie June 12, 2010, 5:26 pm

    I think probably 17th is your date and I’d love to see a review of Power Cables too.

  • Katerina June 12, 2010, 5:50 pm

    I’m going to guess June 18th as the procrastinater in me says later, but I have a feeling you’re more on the ball than I am 😉

    Book review… I don’t have any – It’s always nice to read about a book I hadn’t thought of picking up so .. anything that strikes your fancy or that offers you some inspiration!

  • Teresa June 12, 2010, 8:20 pm

    June 14th . . . how about reviewing the new Knitter’s Almanac that’s coming out for EZ’s 100th birthday?

  • wendy mcelroy June 14, 2010, 12:45 pm

    I’m guessing the 17th.
    I’d love to see a review of knitting 24/7. I just put it on hold on the library 🙂
