Contest #3

I don’t have a name for this contest. It’s sort of blog-warming, re-opening, or makeover themed, because I’ve just switched my blog software to WordPress. There is a yummy yarn prize involved. All you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment! It’s not required, but I welcome feedback on my new blog appearance.

The comments will be assigned a number in the order they’re left. I’ll use a Random Number Generator to select a lucky winner.

And the yarn prize? It’s a skein of All Things Heather yarn (fingering/sock weight, 100% superwash merino, ~560 yards) in Wicked!

All Things Heather - Wicked

Deadline to leave a comment: Saturday October 21, 2006. Good Luck!

UPDATE: Link to All Things Heather fixed. So sorry!

    Chris got me thinking I should take a look at other MN knitter blogs so I stopped by. That’s gorgeous yarn with my name on it (literally) – maybe destiny will get me to start knitting socks.

    That IS yummy yarn!! So are all these contests your way of getting off the yarn diet faster? ;-)

    And wait… aren’t people supposed to give YOU presents for a blog warming? ya know… like a house warming? Or are you using Hobbit philosophy?

    I LOVE the color of this yarn – it looks wonderfully soft. The blog looks great! I like the way it is layed out – easy to read and locate things.

    ooh, welcome to WP. I love using it!

    I was expecting Wicked yarn to have a bit of green in it… (no, I’m not upset that I missed getting tix to see it when it was in town over the summer. why do you ask?) still a gorgeous color!

    Chris sent me your way so I don’t know what your blog looked like before, but I really like. It is clean and fresh yet has a lot of the info I’m curious about when I first visit a blog.

    Happy Blog Warming!

    October 18th, 2006 at 10:16 pm

    I found you from Chris’s Stumbling, etc. website. I might have named that yarn Cherry Oreos or Poodle Skirt, though; Wicked needs to have some green in it.

    wow! i love those colors! and congrats on your blog. .i have a wordpress (free version) blog also and i can sya that it is a lot more pro than others. and love this layout you have, 3 columns are always better. i can never have enought place with the 2 column default ones my blogspot one used to have..

    i added your blog to my fav bloglines list, if you don’t mind…

    Howdy Ma’am. Just popped over to update my RSS feed (it wouldn’t let me do it the other day).

    I really like the new look. I think the darker background really makes your banner “pop”.

  58. Stephania/Moirae Says:
    October 20th, 2006 at 2:01 am

    Congratulations on the new blog! If you need any wordpress help, which I highly doubt given the polished look of your site, just drop on by and leave me a note. I’ll do what I can.

    That’s very pretty yarn, but, whatever you are linking to where it says “All Things Heather” isn’t working.

  59. Kelle Says:

    Hey, nice job. I’m contemplating a move too but still haven’t made it there yet. Perhaps, sometime when I have a little more time to mess around I will.

In progress…
