Celebrating with a Giveaway!

I'm in Celebration Mode since we are quickly approaching 1000 views of my blog!


I want to continue to grow the blog, so I'm having a giveaway!

Here's how to enter:

You can receive 1 entry by (1) commenting on this post, or (2 ) posting about this giveaway on your blog. Make sure you leave a second comment linking to your blog.

You can receive 3 entries by becoming a follower of this blog. Make sure you post just one comment saying that you have become a follower (or already are) and I will count it as three.
In any comment you leave, make sure there is contact information such as email or Ravelry id.

I saw that Andrea at Life on Laffer was using these parimeters for a giveaway on her site (which you should also check out and enter!) and thought it was such a great idea, I stole it (I'm totally giving her credit, I definitely copied it word for word from her site! I hope you don't mind Andrea).

I'm going to add in a bonus way to get your name added to the pool:

Tell an additional friend about my blog, someone who you think would not have found my site before. For example, if you're in the Itty Bitty Group and you tell a friend who you always talk to you in the Itty Bitty Group, that doesn't count, because they likely would have come across my site before through the group.  A non-knitting friend or a friend from another group in Ravelry would be a great referal.  I'm not going question you, on this, I'll just assume you're being honest. For this type of entry please leave me a comment saying "I told ______".  If you want, you can tell me how you know that person or why you think they would like my blog.

So... What am I giving away??
I am giving away a set of Felted Teething Rings.  These are made from my new pattern (available free, click the link!) and are knit from Pancake and Lulu Organic Merino.  I will likely throw in some other goodies, I can't tell you what yet though, I haven't figured that out yet!
Please feel free to post about this giveaway on blogs, ravelry groups, etc. Let's spread the word and celebrate!
The Celebration Giveaway will close at Midnight (Standard Time) on Friday, March 26th, 2010 and is open to those living in the United States and Canada.
