Update: This contest is now closed. Winners will be posted shortly!
Yes folks, it's time for my first ever blog giveaway! Many thanks to my awesome friend over at Youvegotmaille for alerting me to this great international event (and be sure to visit her giveaway too!)
The event is called One World One Heart and it is composed of bloggers around the world all giving things away for free. What could be better than free stuff?
I shall be choosing THREE winners for my giveaway! The first two chosen from my random draw will each receive one doubleknit reversible potholder, like these:
You can opt for the Black Mage or Red Mage as shown above, or if you have another video game character/logo you'd like me to chart out, I might be able to work something out. In fact, the design is pretty flexible, as long as it's chartable and fits within the area of the potholder, and is geeky in some way (because let's face it, geeky knitting defines my blog).
Due to the quite unexpected volume of signups (I never knew there were so many people out there who love geeky knitting) I am offering a THIRD prize! It is this very stylish Mario 1up Wristband, as shown below. It's pretty stretchy, and it should fit both male and female wrists. I tried to pick gender-neutral colours as well. It's doubleknit as well and is made with superwash sock yarn, so no worries if you get it dirty, you can just toss it in the washing machine.
So, I'm sure you're all wondering now how you enter. Here are your directions, in convenient numbered format.
1. Leave a comment on THIS blog post
2. Give me some way to contact you (either leave your comment with your blogger ID if you have a blog of your own, leave your Ravelry name, leave me your email address, or make sure your name is recognizable as someone I know in person/on facebook)
That's all! This giveaway is open to everyone in the world, and a winner will be chosen by rolling of my happy yellow d20, narrowing down the list until a winner emerges. The last day for entries is 11:59pm PST on February 11th, and the winners will be announced on February 12th, so be sure to get your entry in before that.
Once you've entered mine, you should browse some of the other 800+ blogs entered in the OWOH initiative and sign up to win some other cool free stuff :)
P.S. If we get all the way to 150 comments, I might even throw in a 4th prize! Wheee!
