Blogiversary Contest

So, I just realized that this Sunday will be the 1 year anniversary of my becoming a blogger. I started blogging here on April 27th 2007. I decided I would keep that date as my blogiversary, even though I have moved. Since it seems that a contest is customary for the anniversary of a knitting blog, here is mine:

This photo show 4 different types of roving from my stash. They are all 100% a single fiber (no blends). Guess what type of fiber each roving is.

To enter the contest leave a comment with your guesses listed left to right (they must be in the correct order to be considered correct guesses), by Monday April 28. Any guess will get you an entry in the drawing for a prize.

To get additional entries:
  • A correct guess on two or three of the fibers will get an additional entry
  • A correct guess on all four fibers gets you 4 additional entries
  • If you enter this contest and have ever commented on either of my blogs before you will get an additional entry
  • A link to this contest on your blog will get you an additional entry (you must let me know you have done this)
  • Any comment in which someone tells me you referred them to this contest will get you another entry.

So, the number of entries you can get is limitless.

The Prizes:
  1. a custom needle roll-up
  2. a 4oz hank of hand spun merino wool
  3. a hank of hand painted cotton yarn

I will announce winners on Tuesday, April 29th. The first place winner (the first name I draw out of a bag) will get to choose whichever prize he/she would like. The second place winner will get his/her choice of the two remaining prizes, and the third place winner will get the remaining prize.

:( I am totally clueless about what fibers are which. Yeah, I know I need to work on that. But, they're all gorgeous...does sucking up count? lol
Of course I'll spread the word on my blog...tonight or tomorrow...whenever I get a post done.
Just wild guesses...the 2nd one is fleece...the 3rd is merino...I know I'm probably wrong but I figured "What the heck!"

I think the blue one is silk.

And I've posted before, both here and at 360! And I'll plug you contest on my blog.

Here's a fairly random guess from somebody who doesn't spin: BFL wool, soysilk, merino wool, silk.

Happy blogiversary!

Wow a year Congrats hon!!!! Okay I'll try
Silk, soy, merino, tencel

KnitWithTammy said...

Congrats on your first year!!
Wow! What you've done in one year!

Anyhow, I am into this contest stuff, so . . . I'd say the mix is a Wool, that blue is really throwing me. Bamboo? The red is definetly Merino, and I believe the white is soy silk.

Now I just have to try to figure out how to link. (If all else fails, I can just copy and paste your blog addy in a post)

As you already know I'm a follower from 360 - Pazzagatto. (I miss how easy the stuff on 360 was, I am having quite a time spiffin up my blogsot compared. Oh, well . . .)

Congrats for a year of blogging, and thanks for the contest! I'm going to guess the multi is the cotton that will be one of the prizes, blue ramie, since Blue Velvet wouldn't work, red Merino, hopefully the other prize, and white cornsilk.

Thanks also to WiKnit: The Knitting Contest Blog for letting me know about the contest. I've posted to my blog as well.

Happy Blogiversary! I'm a spinner, but mostly of the animal fiber variety, so this is a bit tricky. I'll guess, from L to R, silk, tencel, wool- either merino or colonial, as it looks like Ashland Bay, and bamboo. May you have many more years of blogging ahead of you!
