great big superfantastic blog party with knitterly prizes!

 Ok, it’s finally time for the Move-In Party! I want to get things rolling over here, reach out to former blog readers and invite new ones. In an effort to do this, there will be giveaways!

Giveaways #1 – 4: Copies of the new Stitch ‘n Bitch book in which I have a pattern! It’s a phenomenal book, really. I love the designs – there are some really adorable and compelling patterns in there. But the true selling point is all the technique advice. If you’ve ever said, I love knitting but I really want to move myself to the next level then this book is for you.

Here’s the book:  

And here’s my pattern, the “Fertility Blanket” – not a great photo in terms of showing off the blanket, I have to admit. But the model looks nice, right? Hi lady!

 The publisher is sending me an excerpt of my pattern to share here on the blog. Stay tuned for that. Patterns for all!

Prize #5 is a package of yarn from Debbie Stoller’s yarn company, Stitch Nation. They sent me a sufficient quantity of yarn in the Bamboo Ewe line to make the blanket in the book. It’s a different gauge then the required yarn, but hey, it’s a little lap/baby blanket, we’re flexible.

This is the yarn:

And it’s in this colorway:

Prizes #6-9 will be copies of my knitting pattern Necking. That’s this one:

Necking - new knitting pattern to be released August 2010. Sign up for the class in September at www.serialknitters.com

Prize #10 will be your choice of any three knitting patterns I have ever published.

Prizes #11 and #12 will apply only to local knitters.

#11: Free admission to one class of mine at Serial Knitters yarn shop. Debie at Serial Knitters has agreed to waive the tuition for a student to help me have one additional fabulous prize on the blog.

#12: A one-on-one private knitting lesson on the topic of your choice. Even “learn to knit” for those of you who like to say, “I always wanted to learn to knit!”  (Seriously, if I had a dollar for every time I heard that… I’d have plenty of dollars, let me tell you.)

And that’s it! Since today is 12/12 I thought twelve prizes would be an auspicious number.

But Pam, how do we enter this contest?

I am so glad you asked, thanks! To enter the contest you can do one of two things.

One: Subscribe Option. To enter, you simply subscribe to my blog or become a registered users. Subscribers can get email updates when I post. Registered users can log in and stay logged in so it’s easier to post comments AND can also get email updates if they want. 

and/or

Two: Social Networking Option. Help me get the word out. Using your social networking superpowers post a blog/FB status/tweet/what-have-you pointing to this post. Tell your friends: Come join a contest on Pamelamama’s blog!  You get one entry for each social networking post you make. In the comments here, link to your post to show you’ve done the job, and I’ll add you to the random drawing.

Local folks need to post to the comments here indicating that you are local to the Seattle Metropolitan Area. then you’ll be included for prizes #12 and #11.

I plan to do the drawing on Friday 12/17 at 6pm Pacific Standard Time. Hopefully we’ll be able to rally a bunch of entrants by then. I reserve the right to push it out another week if it seems prudent. Hey, it’s my blog, right?  

Any questions?

So you could potentially have MORE than one entry into this contest. Feeling lucky? I am! I feel lucky to have this fun outlet and I hope you’ll come and play.

Good luck!
