Blogaversary contest

I just looked back at my first post and it was on August 24, 2006. My blogaversary slipped by without my notice.

To celebrate, I'm going to give away some yarn, along with Last Train Home's (sidebar; don't have my html linkie page handy) (wouldn't you think I'd have memorized that stuff already?) cd, Live from the IOTA. I don't know what yarn just yet, but I have plenty, so it'll be something good.

To sum up: Contest, yarn, Last Train Home cd. What contest, though? Never mind. Just leave a comment, and I'll use the old numbers-in-a-hat trick to chose the winner. Contest ends on Saturday, September 6, at midnight my time.

So start commenting! Bring your friends! If you mention this on your blog and send me the link, I'll put your number in twice. If you come from another person's blog, tell me whose and I'll give that person an extra chance.

Come on, I want to give away stuff!

Happy Blogiversary! :)

madonnaearth said...

Happy anniversary! Love the pictures and the copying commentary, especially the princess that called and ask for copies at the end of the day "so she wouldn't have to go to Kinko's and pay for it". Tough!

madonnaearth said...

Courtney sent me, too! I forgot to add, what is that gorgeous yarn in your blog header? It is too gorgeous! No rush on that answer though!

Mindi said...

Betty said...

Wow! Congrats on the anniversary of your blog. Your contest is very popular! You don't have to enter me in the drawing, since I'm your sister and all, and since I don't know what to do with yarn (although it is very pretty to look at!) but I wanted to say hi!

Rachel O said...

Wow - you certainly are popular. Since I"m NOT your sister, can you please enter me in the contest. I can assure you I know what to do with yarn :-)

Happy Blogiversary

I came her from Elaine's blog.

amy said...

riaknits said...

Hiya! Sent here by Courtney. It's funny how contests can sometimes just get me reading a whole load of back entries in a blog to see if they've knit anything that I want to knit in the future. :D

Happy blogiverary1

Kelley said...

Yippee, another knitting blog to read! I just love seeing what everyone else is up too!

Hi! I found you through mrsknitter.blogspot.com. I enjoyed going through your blog. Happy Blogaversary! :)

Krissy said...

I say your contest on Darcy's Knotty Knitter. Cute blog, knitting with deer in the background must be nice. And I totally agree with you on California Screamin being the best ride ever.

rita said...

Come on, Betty, admit that you don't want the Last Train Home cd!

Sarah said...

happy blogaversary!

I was happy to listen to the LTH CD in the car on our trip and if you love them so much, they must be pretty good! And, they seem like really nice guys, from what you've said. I just have this thing about country and bluegrass music. Must have something to do with all those trips to Miami when we were little, in the car for 21 hours straight, listening to bluegrass music. And, I want someone to have the CD who will really appreciate it!

katerina said...
