Sneaky contest

Did that get your attention? Did your ears perk up? Are you ready for free fibery stuff?

Ok, earlier I mentioned a contest. I have finally decided on how I want to do it. I will warn you....it is sneaky. It won't be run in a traditional way, but in a sneaky way. I am also keeping the prize a secret. I love surprises so that's why I am doing it this way. All will be revealed when the contest closes on Sunday night. I will announce the winner then, or on Monday morning. (I'm covering myself here, in case my brain refuses to remember this on Sunday.)

I am hoping this brings some of you lurkers out of the closet. I know a lot more people read this blog than I hear from in the comments. I am hoping that I get to hear from a few more of them! As part of the sneakiness (is that a word?), I have a number in my head. If I reach this number of comments, I will increase the prizes. So leave a comment and good luck!

Hand up - I am a semi-lurker. I read ALL the time and comment rarely. Sorry. I vow to do better!

I read your blog all the time too but am not great at always leaving comments. Have a great weekend!

Robbyn said...

Well, I'm not sure I understand your contest criteria but what the heck :)

Sneaky surprises certainly sound like fun!

I am a total lurker and only come out of hiding for contests.

I'll bite. I love a good intrigue. Not to be a spoiler, but the butler did it.

Sneakiness is a word...lurker is outted! :) Don't feel bad about not getting comments. I think I've received a whopping 4 in my year or two of blogging. I don't even know if people read it, but it's more for me than others. I enjoy the writing and getting things out of my system. It's also a great place for me to journal about my projects.

Hi,

I rarely comment on the blogs I read -- unless there is a contest!!!

Sounds like fun.

I'm not sure I like surprises, but this one seems like harmless fun. :)

Don't forget your foot measurement! Or else I'm going to guess and send the socks to you anyway. (Yes, I'm a horrible nag.)

Jeanne said...

I do read your blog, but I don't think I comment all the time - sneaky surprises sound like fun!

I am new to the blog world! I love knitting & now I love blogging...but I'll admit I am a lurker. I have read ALL of posts!!...yes, really! I check it almonst everyday & actually get upset if you haven't blogged! (smile - not OCD, I promise!) I love your comments, your mention of kids & family from time-to-time & of course the knitting! The contest sounds fun & sneaky?...you've got my curiosity!!

Marguerite said...

I usually lurk and enjoy but can't resist a sneaky contest.

Your knitting is always beautiful and it's fun to read a blog where the writer is having the same weird weather that I'm having.

Have a great weekend and hope you get lots of comments.

I've never been to this site before, so I guess I am not a lurker. I am a new knitter and am reading everything I can find. Am always looking for tips, tricks, and info. Love the blog. And love to be sneaky ;)
