And really, who isn’t?

Whereas I am a comment whore and

Whereas I have received more than 1000 comments since this blog’s inception and

Whereas I am immensely grateful for every comment I get and

Whereas I am declaring today Knitting Interrupted’s official Delurk Day,

I am happy to announce a comment contest!

Say hello via comment by 10/13 at 11:59. You’ll be entered into a random drawing for this lovely skein of Yarn Pirate in the June Bug colorway.

(from the Booty Club)

Every comment I’ve ever received on all posts since January 22, 2007 will be entered into the drawing, so if you’ve never commented before, now’s your chance. Anonymous comments and those from family will not be eligible (sorry Mom and TAS). I will select the winner by random integer generation and make every good-faith attempt to notify by email, as well as make the announcement in a blog post on 10/14/2008 at 9 am. Winner will have one week to claim the prize. After one week, I will draw a new winner.

Thanks to all my regular readers, and those that pass through.

Also, the winner of the Citchen Cabinet Contest, selected by this list randomizer, is Jen at Knitting Kitchen! Congratulations to Jen and thank you to every who entered. Sage decided on the bronze knob, although I have to say that after a while the bronze bar pull really grew on me. Hah.

Happy Leap Day, everyone!


Citchen Cabinet Contest

My friend Sage is installing new kitchen cabinets, but she’s having a hard time deciding which hardware to use. Can you help her decide? Head on over to her blog to vote for your favorite knob or handle and then come back here leave me a comment on this post. On February 29th at 8 am EST, I’ll choose a winner from the commentors here by random number and send him or her a prize. How about some pretty kitchen cotton to make a couple of dishcloths for your own kitchen?


Two Things

1. My friend Jen won a contest. Yay! Check out the 12 Knits of Christmas!

2. The Yarn Harlot was mentioned today in the New York Times as the coiner of the word Kinnear (v).


And the winner…

…chosen by random sequence generation at, is Bellamoden! Contact me by email with your shipping information and I will send your prize out to you as soon as possible. If I don’t hear from you by 11:59 pm (EDT) on Friday, September 7, I will choose a new winner.

If you didn’t win the contest, fear not. I have two extra sets of stitch markers available for purchase at my brand new etsy shop! Also, I will be putting up matching earrings and, eventually, more stitch markers. Maybe, one day, hand-dyed sock yarn too.

Thanks to all who entered the contest! It was really fun getting all your comments.
