My First Blog Contest

In honor of nothing I decided to have a blog contest. And since two is better than one there will be two sets of prizes!:)

The first prize is in honor of the spinning which I have not been doing. Sitting and spinning isn’t very comfortable these days. I am hoping that will change in a few days/weeks once I have the baby. Anyway around Christmas time Ernesto indulged me and allowed me to get a spinning wheel even though I had never spun in my life. I of course must include some pictures of my Kromski Minstrel here:

Anyway I am giving away a copy of the Intentional Spinner, some roving (BFL I believe) and an Ashford Spindle(spindle not pictured).

In my other set of prizes I am giving away two books, Ysolda’s Whimsical Little Knits and Erika Knight’s Simple Knits for Cherished Babies.

So the next question is probably how do I win? Well as many of you know I am pregnant. My due date is 28 August, but I am hoping to have the baby a bit early as I did with my first. Anyway guess the time that the baby is born and you get first prize and you get to pick which of the two prizes you want. The second closest person will get the other prize. Just a time, no date for this contest. So send me a comment and let me know your guess! As a warning, this contest may go on for a few weeks before I can announce the winner:)

    Hi there, evilherbivore from Ravelry… I'm guessing the baby is going to make you wait until Monday the 31st, and… hmmm… it will be a late birth – 10:30 pm. Good luck!

    I'm going to guess 2:43pm. Hopefully it will be a short and relatively (lol) painless delivery for you. Good luck.

  17. amy in ne says:

    I hate to say this but most of mine came in the middle of the night so I am guessing 0233 –that's AM. For your sake, really hoping not! 🙂

  20. KnittySue says:

    A time contest…hmmmm…my guess will be 7:52 pm. Good luck and congrats.


  21. RiverPoet says:

    In honor of our matching Minstrels – I'll say 12:00 noon. 🙂


  22. Terese says:

    I'm guessing 03:00 AM, because that's when I was born. (My mom only gave birth at whole and half hours, with all four of us!)

    Stumbled upon the contest while using the radar on Ravelry, so now onto checking out the rest of the blog! Oh, and you have a beautiful spinning wheel!

  23. Kelly H. says:

    Samantha was born at just after noon, and Erica was born at just after 10.

    So I'm going to guess you'll give birth just after 11, right in between the two. The official guess is 11:05 AM.

    Good luck!
