They Hyper Monkey and I cordially invite you to come on over to our new site appropriately called, The Hyper Monkey.
We’re holding a huge moving contest. Don’t miss it!
See you there!
After making a numbered list of everyone who commented and tweeted and Facebooked and Plurked and blogged, I used a random generator to come up with our winner. Who just happens to be Melanie! I’ve already emailed her and I’m just waiting to find out what color crystals/beads she’d like on these naked markers.
I want to thank everyone for taking part in this give-away/contest/whatever. I am absolutely flubbadubbed at the response I received!
I’ll probably be holding another contest/give-away/whatever in about a month or so just for kicks. :)
Sadly, I have no kitty photo to share. They’ve all run for the hills. Silly buggers.
Thanks for reading! Happy Monday! (Wow. That sounds so wrong.)
Wow. I can’t believe the response I’ve gotten from my little give away! Thank you all! I’ll post the results sometime tomorrow or at the latest Tuesday. I say Tuesday just to be on the safe side because I’m dealing with some health issues here. I won’t bore you with the details.
I’ve gotten some questions as to how to use the Off The Hook markers, so I thought I’d post a photo of one of them in action.
See? You just hook it onto a stitch! They don’t fall off either. I’ve been pretty rough with my knitted item there and it hasn’t dislodged or unfastened. If you wanted to be extra careful with them, you could squeeze the marker closed too.
If you wanted to use it on a piece with stockinette stitch, you would just hook it on one of the legs of the “v’s”.
I hope that helps!
Good luck everyone and many mahalos for participating! :)
One day my friend Dorothy asked me if I could make markers for one of her crochet projects. It was quite a coincidence since I was already thinking of making new markers for the shop.
This is how the Off The Hook Markers were born.
These are great for marking rows in knitting or in crochet. I like them a lot better then paper clips. :P
As a special contest for the launch of these new markers, I’m going to pick a random commenter off this post and send a free set of stitch markers to him/her. The markers will be made to order in the color of your choice.
The rules are thus:
1. You can leave only one comment BUT!
2. If you Facebook or Tweet or Plurk or blog about the contest then leave the link in a comment and I’ll add an extra entry in the bowl with your name in it.
3. If someone leaves a comment and mentions your name then you get another entry with your name on it.
4. You have until Sunday, March 14th, midnight Hawaiian time, to enter. For those not in the know that’s GMT -10:00 or in other words i’m 2 hours behind the west coast and 5 hours behind the east coast.
Scheyer and Quincy are feeling the blog love.
Happy Thursday folks!
There was a great response to the contest and many of you guessed correctly. The correct answer to what the Mystery Project really is..
And the winners of the contest are..
1st Place: Meredith
2nd Place: Jenny Raye
3rd Place: Carrie
All winners have been emailed. Thanks to everyone who entered. The winners were picked randomly from a raffle by my mother. This was so much fun, I think I might try to come up with other contests to hold some other time. I only wish I had enough yarn to give every participant.
As for the cardigan, I’m past the side shaping and I just need to finish knitting a few more inches to complete the body then I can move onto the sleeves. There was a disastrous moment when I realized that I didn’t buy enough yarn to complete the size I need for myself.
I needed about 200 more yards and Knit Picks didn’t have anymore of the dye lot that I had previously bought. I figure that I can use the other dye lot for the neckband, cuffs and the bottom hem though. The dye lots are close enough that it’s really hard for eye to see the difference. At least that’s what I’m hoping.
I’m also hoping the sun will come out for pictures tomorrow. It’s been hiding for the past couple of days and while I’ve been really lucky in where I live on the island, there have been unfortunate folks on the North Shore that have been experiencing flooding. It just goes to show how strange island weather can get, since here on the southeastern shore we’ve barely had any rain at all.
