Blog-a-versary contest!

Well, this blog began a year ago today, and in honor of this very important fact, I'm going to do... ummmm.... Just give me a minute, I'll think of something. While I'm thinking, I just have to say how much I appreciate all of you wonderful people who take the time to read my blog! It would be pretty much pointless if no one bothered to read it. Special thanks to Hakucho, TEA, and Joelle, who never fail to comment. Not to leave the rest of you out! Every time someone leaves a comment, it makes my day. I still can't believe it's been a year! Actually, I almost missed this important event. *gasp* That would have been very sad, after all, these things only come once a year. Oh well, I didn't, so it's all good. Ok, I thought of something. I'll have a little contest. In my room, I have a rather large pile of dishcloths. Leave a comment, and see if you can guess how many I have sitting up there. This includes KALs, patterns I've designed, everything. For added challenge, I'm not going to post a picture. :) Whoever comes the closest will win 2 free patterns from my pattern blog. (Your choice) If there's a tie, I won't draw names, there will just be more than one winner. You have until next Saturday, March 22, to enter. I'll announce the winner on the 23rd, along with the correct number. If you don't have a blog, be sure to leave your email address or something so I can get in touch with the winner! Again, thanks for making my blogging experience so wonderful. Have fun!

P.S. Oops! I forgot that the 23rd is Easter! It still seems too early. Because of that, the contest will still close on Saturday, but I won't announce the winner until a few days later.

By the way, I'm going to keep everyone's guesses hidden until the end of the contest, so don't worry when your comment doesn't show.

I love your blog! It is so fun to look at all of the pictures and keep up with what you are doing! I went back to the ones you wrote while you were here...ahhh...memories! : ) Okay-my vote is 49 dishclothes. That is probably way too low, but that is the number that popped into my head! Love you! Auntie Ann

I'm guessing 37 :-) Congrats on your first blogoversary!

hakucho said...

I can only imagine the pile of cloths you must have...a huge pile....you are a cloth knitting machine. Therefore I would have to say TNTC (back from my bacteria colony counting days) : Too numerous to count ;)

happy knitting :)

Lisa said...

Wow, my guess would be 62.

Hi Lindy, Happy Blogaversary!! Love your blog - makes me want to dive in and try my own.

Thanks for the last dishcloth KAL. I actually had been to your blog several times and had seen the Tomb. When Andi said the color was tan or gray, I had a strong feeling we would be knitting your Tomb! Did mine in S&C Creme.

I'll guess you have 37 cloths in your pile! Keep up the great work and give Kirby a hug - he's so cute.

alcatmom said...

Hi Lindy! Congrats on your 1st blogaversary!! Since I have around 30 cloths waiting for ends to be tucked in I am going to guess you must have at least 117 in your pile. I'll bet it's more than that but that's my final answer and I'm stickin' to it. Hope the next year is even more fun for you!

Anonymous said...

I am going to make a guess of 37.

I love your patterns....wish I was as talented as you....I just follow them!

Your dog Kirby is adorable too! Makes you want to just hug him up!

Happy Aniversary!

RoamingKnitter said...

Happy Anniversary, may you have many, many more fun days & year of knitting & blogging. My contest guess is 27 cloths.

A Little Knottie said...

Hmmm...I've seen your cotton yarn stash, and I know how long it takes to knit up a washcloth. Now the question I need to answer is how many of these do you give away? I am guessing 73 because you give most of them away, but you probably do that mostly during special times.

PicN'Knit said...

Lindy your blogg is fun and I find you to be very creative! I'm guess you have 63 dishcloths in your room.

April said...

Wow Lindy! What an amazing young woman you are! I learned to knit when I was 12 and had a hard time with it then, I can't imagine having learned at 5 :)

I know I'm probably WAY off, but I'll make a guess for your contest... is it 163?

Knit on!
April

kaspar said...

Hi Lindy!
Happy, happy blogiversary!!!
I remember when you joined Monthly Dishcloths & was so proud to learn you are home schooled. It sure doesn't seem like a year ago to me, either. Time just flies when you're knittin', I guess.

Aw, thanks so much for mentioning my comments in your post! You've made my day countless times with your comments on my blog, too!

Two of your patterns is a wonderful prize for the contest!
I'm guessin' 34 dishcloths. :)

Hi, I left a comment this weekend but I think it didn't go through. I saw the reference to your blog on Monthly Dishcloths. I wanted to tell you that your blog is encouraging to me, a homeschooling mom to 5. :) Here's my guess: 58 dishcloths.
