Existential.

Prove to me that you exist.

Leave a comment. Say hi. Say something random. Say something. I have readers, I know I do, but few people leave a comment. To lure you out of lurkdom (I've been there), I have this prize to offer you.

Cash Iroha 01

Cash Iroha 02

It's 12 skeins of Noro Cash Iroha (40% silk, 30% wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon). In a lovely blue - Color No. 63, Lot No. A (I've tried to take a picture true to color, but the actual color may differ depending on your monitor).

It would make a lovely sweater. A few hats and scarves. Or whatever your heart desires (for about 1100 yards.) Or re-gift (I won't tell). I originally purchased this to knit the Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. But I've come to the realization that it just isn't going to happen, and letting this yarn just sit is a travesty.

In order to enter, leave a comment (along with some way to contact you). ALl you have to do is say hi, and you are in the proverbial hat. Deadline will be Sunday 8 a.m., and the winner will be drawn at random.

30 comment(s). Tell me what you think!:

Antoinette said...

I'll come out of lurkdom for that!

Theresa said...

I've been reading (lazily, via feed reader - sorry) since those adorable snowman hats. I'll try to comment more :)

Sara said...

Yay Noro!!!

Sarah said...

I'm such a lazy commenter. I'll try harder! I've had that sweater on my list for about 4 years now too, but have never bought the yarn for it.

I agree... what an awesome drawing! I've been a bad lurker lately, but do know that I always read what you have to say. I'll work on the commenting. :D

I'm such a terrible lurker - I've been reading your blog forever (it's one of my favorites), but I never comment. I know it's always nice to get comments, so I'll try to be better :)

I'm blog comment shy. I read nearly 200 blogs almost daily and I can count the times I've commented on one hand. For some reason, I can never think of anything to say. But I always enjoy reading!

Thanks for posting!

Yo yo hello!

Jennifer said...

Wow! That's a cool prize. How's life in Iowa City? Is Gilda's still there? My knitting career really started when I was at the UI (a million years ago). My parents started out there, too. Great memories of Iowa City and Coralville. Sigh.

Becky in Iowa :O) said...

bahahaha You have a lot of lurking readers. :P It's amazing who will show up for a prize. I swear that's not why I commented though. :P

Ann said...

Saw the link to your blog on the Ravelry Iowa group.


Can I say I love your craft room? It is great!

What a great giveaway. I could think of all kinds of things to make out of it. I have a couple of granddaughters that would love hats and scarves. I really enjoy your blog even though I just lurk. Guess I have to come out of lurkdom.

You can reach me a knitpickingchick@yahoo.com

Linda said...

You are too kind! I am a long-time lurker who stumbled across your blog while searching for other Iowa knitters. Greetings from Ankeny and thank you for sharing!

I work with your husband and he calls me the Blog Stacker. I would love to make a sweater out of that yarn. I enjoy your blog.
