100th Post Give-Away!

November 18, 2008

This spring went by without me marking my blog-i-versary, but here I am with 100 posts! What started out mostly as a place for me to organize my creative-ness has grown so much. I started writing down and sharing my knitting patterns, after Ariadne dared me to, then made my “website website” to sell my patterns and (soon!) toys. In the meantime, I went on two gigantical bike rides and lots of littler ones, told some goofy stories, drew you some pictures, and got some of my work published in pixels and in print. And I decided I love exclamation points after all. They’re great! Yay!

Since I started counting last fall, my wee little blog has gotten 35,000 hits from 28,000 visitors, and about 50 of you are subscribed to my feed – so who are all of you? Say hi and you might win a prize!
I’m giving away my extra copy of Luxury One Skein Wonders with my starfish pattern in it. (Because of course I ran out and bought myself a copy before my free one came in the mail). I’ll mail it anywhere, and I’ll even sign my page for you if you want. To be eligible to win, leave me a comment – tell me what you like about my blog, or what I should knit next, or just say hi! Make sure you use a valid email address so I can contact you if you win. I’ll pick a random commenter on December 1, so get those comments in by midnight EST November 30. Good luck, and happy delurking!

    I'm hardly de-lurking 'cause I'm hardly online, but here I am anyway. Miss you at the Muffies meet-up, but I've been working Monday nights and, well, sheesh. I'm so thrillingly inspired by your albino sea creatures – they may be a way for me to finally make good on a swap I screwed up ages ago. Congrats on 100 posts and getting into print and just being a badass.

    Hi Daniel… I found you through your jellyfish Christmas ornament last year… and then found out that the woman I work for (in Phila. pharma advertising — her name is Becky) is the sister of someone you know. Small world. I like to read a lot of knitting blogs.eyesofblue
