The Take Your Pick Giveaway

I posted my knitted dishcloths on a few link parties this week and received some really nice comments--everyone seems to love these little guys, whether making them or receiving them. Hooray for crafty solidarity! Ahem...sorry...geek moment. I also got a bit of an education. While I know these are made all over, I didn't know what they were called--the consensus seems to be "Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth" and it is indeed alive and well in Googleville. Also, it just so happens that the pattern is printed on the yarn wrapper--I've never even looked at the wrapper because I swear it's printed in a 2 font or smaller. I just tear it off and get stitchin'. I checked through my new skeins, though, and found one. So color me embarrassed over my ignorance, but thankful for the insight. One of the reasons I love comments.

Moving on...

I've reached a bit of a milestone here. This is my 150th post, and my blog will soon be a year young. So I decided to have a giveaway (my first!), and I hope you'll all take part.

I've got two sets of items for this giveaway:

In this group we have some sewing themed folders, a sewing themed emery board, a sewing themed magnetic bookmark, one of the foldaway shopping totes from my shop, and the book 'Quilt Style' by Tammy Tadd. This book is quite fun and lovely, stands up like an easel, and has some of the sweetest quilts I've ever seen.

In this group we have a cable-knit sweater notebook, some intarsia (or is it Fair Isle?) pencils, a handknit dishcloth, a crocheted pot scrubbie (nice and thick and up to the job--even the non-stick coated job), and the book 'Knit Lit,' a collection of stories and essays, some funny, some sad, about knitting adventures and misadventures.

 To enter:
~ Leave a comment on THIS POST stating which you'd prefer if you win, or if you have no preference. I will be selecting two names--the first one drawn will get their first choice, the second one will get the other set of goodies.
~ You don't have to be a follower of this blog--but if you become one or are one already leave a second comment and you get an extra chance to win.
~ Mention this giveaway on your blog either in a post or by grabbing the picture below and placing it in your sidebar. Leave me a comment stating that you did and--you guessed it--another chance to win. 
 

Here are some extra details:
~ All comments must be in by 11:59 pm EST on November 11th, 2010. I will select the winner the next dayish and announce soon thereafter.   THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!
~ This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere.

Good luck!
