100 followers give-away!

I've been looking at my blog really often this past week. I was always aware of how many Google followers I had. And yes, the moment is here, there it is: I have 100 followers! When I started this blog in April 2010, I never thought that I could reach 100 followers. And yet, if you look at the Google follower widget on your right, it's over 100!

My follower widget has always been my popularity gauge, despite all the statistics gadget blogger provides. I mean, if you deliberately subscribe to a blog, it means that you read every post, and you are looking forward for the next post, right? I noticed that I have some devoted readers who are always there!

So, like I said in the beginning of this post, I have been stalking my own blog this week, and I have been preparing myself for this moment. This is my way of saying thank you, dear followers:

100 followers give-away!

The prices

One handmade dnps knitting needles case, featuring 16 pockets, a flap and tie ribbon (outer fabric is from the Amy Butler fabric line);


3 sets of 6 handmade stitchmarkers, featuring one stitchmarker with an extra bead;


5 of my best selling patterns, Émilien, Cybelle, Claire Bennet, Béthanie and Phébée, that you will receive in your email reception box in lovely .pdf format.


All this items have been all handmade by me, with love!

How to win

  1. Post a comment on this post, telling why you read my blog. The give-away starts now as of Monday, January 10th and will end on Friday, January 14th, 00h00 eastern america time,which gives you a week to participate.
  2. Only the comments with email addresses will be counted. (Write you email address in this format in the comment: your.address[at]yourmail[dot]com. Blogger doesn't always provide the email address of the commentator!)
  3. One comment by person please!
  4. I will draw one comment, using a random number generator.
  5. This give-away is for everyone, all around the world!
So, you have one week to participate! What are you waiting for!!! Good luck!

Continue to follow my blog! subscribe! At 200th followers, we might have another give-away...

I love your posts about what's hot on Ravelry. I've added several patterns to my queue after seeing them on your blog. It makes it a lot easier since rav has so many patterns.

I started reading your blog after I realized that there were several of your patterns that I wanted to make. I figured, I'd best keep up on what you had in the works so that I jump on new patterns right away!

The Sweatshop of Love said...

According to my google reader you are at 500 subscribers, so I don't know where your count is coming from!

I read your blog because you are so popular :)

I read your blog because you seem like a real down to earth girl, with a simple knitting aesthetic, which I really like. Thanks so much for offering this fun giveaway! I've got Emilien in my queue and would be pumped to win it! And those other amazing prizes, too!

littlesparrowknits said...

Like so many others, I found your blog via What's Hot on Ravelry, and I really liked those posts but stuck around for the lovely patterns and well-done photography! Your Émilien sweater is one of the only men's patterns my husband has ever liked, so I will definitely be adding that to my queue. Also, just a head's up - I use Google Reader to subscribe and when I click on the details for your blog, it says you have 500 subscribers. : )

My email is daynanicole[at]hotmail[dot]com. Thanks for holding such a cool giveaway!

honeypumpkin said...

OMG What a giveaway!
I started reading your blog because the "What's Hot on Ravelry" caught my (very small) attention span. I actually click through to your blog, vs. reading in my feeder, because I LOVE YOUR BACKGROUND. It makes me feel happy.

Thanks for offering this fantastic prize!

I found your blog quite recently following a link to your what's hot on Ravelry posts. Just those made me subscribe in a heartbeat (through Google Reader)! While I haven't had time yet to go back and get a better feel of your blog and thus haven't yet started to comment, the pattern pictures you posted here suggests I definitely need to explore your blog and knitting more (although I had already seen Emilien and love it)! Beautiful! Even if I don't win, some of those will definitely be purchases in the future. Congratulations on such great blog stats...it is easy to see why. And thanks for letting us share in the celebration with such an awesome giveaway! (I think blogger has my email but if not rachieraeATgmailDOTcom)

Why do I read your blog? Originally it was for the round-ups but that hasn't been going on lately. I keep reading because I find what other knitters do as interesting as I find my own knitting. So, I keep reading. I'm entertained. It's grand.

Hi!
I think it's wonderful that you have so many followers! I am curious if they were all really counted though... I'm subscribed to your blog feed though a program called Vienna rather than Google Reader.

Anyways, there are plenty of reasons why I read your blog. I enjoy the What's Hot on Ravelry colem. I always find something new to queue in there. You also have great photography on your blog which is important to me and awesome patterns. Pretty much a slam-dunk blog as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for writing!!!

Good stuff on your give-away!

I found your blog through a blogroll but can't remember which. You caught my eye because you like learning German! When does a German ever hear that? Actually I should comment in German as a challenge ;)

We have the same pattern taste and that's why I keep reading. I'm not a follower because that would be another account to log on to (I have my bookmark list and enjoy cheering me up at work with it).

So there are definitly more than 100!

eva.arntz[at]gmx[dot]de

PS: And you leave very nice comments on my own blog :)))) Thanks for that!

I LOVE your site - I've not yet tried any of your patterns (although I have several of them in my ravelry queue), but I love your stitch markers and use them all the time. Thanks for putting all of this together on a busy student's schedule! :)

I started following you after a friend recommended your blog. I liked your list of favorite things on Ravelry. Very often the same patterns were my favorites as well and just as often I discovered patterns that I hadn't seen yet, and those quickly became favorites. You have such great taste! Please keep it up! :-)

I went and deleted my original comment because of the whole email issue. I didn't realize I had written it out plain. Whoops. So you can go in and permanently delete it if you need to. Anyway, I said:

I love following your blog because of your wonderful finished pieces. They always look so professional and well-made. Congratulations on all your followers!

Why do I read your bog ?? well, as a fellow knitter I like to see all the beautiful thing you make with yarns. As a fellow Université de Montréal's student, je compatis totalement avec le manque de temps pour tricoter dû à un horaire étudiant trop chargé !! Le mauvais côté : What's Hot on Ravelry fait que je passe encore plus de temps à fouiller sur le site.

I started reading your blog only recently -- for the past 4 months or so? -- after Susan Anderson mentioned your Ravelry Roundup posts. I've enjoyed your FOs and the everyday voice you bring to your blog. I'd love to win this giveaway, especially for the pattern of the sweater you made for your boyfriend. My husband would love it!
