Celebrate Spring Contest!



In honor of the first day of spring I thought a contest would be fun. As you can see the lucky winner will receive two skeins of yummy Mmmalabrigo worsted weight yarn. The colorway is called velvet grapes. It truly is beautiful yarn. Each skein has about 216 yards. That's not all you will receive. The winner will also find some fun spring surprises in their package too!




So here are the rules. You can only enter one time. If you mention my contest on your blog with a link you will receive an extra 3 entries! If one of your friends enters because of your input you will get one extra entry. And lastly, just for fun, make sure to mention in your post one of your favorite flowers. One of my favorite flowers are lilacs. The purples and blues and pinks are so striking. The smell is divine. Heaven must smell like lilacs.



The contest ends on Tuesday March 25, 2008 at 7:00p.m. central time. When you leave your comment make sure and click the e-mail box so I can contact you. If you don't have your e-mail linked to your profile it won't work. You can also send me a message when you click on the little envelope next to the comment count. My e-mail is at the top of the page. I am so excited about this contest. I can't wait to read your comments and check out your blog! Happy Spring!

Happy Spring! I'll mention the contest on my blog tomorrow. My email should be linked to this comment.

Debbie said...

Oh Yes! Happy Spring!

I've never tried any of that Malabrigo (did I spell that wrong...oh my...)

I think my email should link...but I don't know how to do that :-( so it might not have worked....

QuilterSal said...

Happy Spring to you, too! I've posted on my blog. I've never tried Malabrigo either. I'm trying all kinds of 'new' yarns lately! Thanks for posting this contest. And, thanks to Lisa Boyer for turning me on to your blog. I love it!

Terri said...

Hey I received notice of your cool contest on quiltersal's blog - count me in! I'd love to receive the yummy yarn. I'm not sure how to get Sally the extra entries, but hope this will do it. In case my email doesn't get transmitted, it's thdavis3@mchsi.com
Thanks.

Shelly said...

Yea, Spring is finally here, I love the smell of the freesia's here in sunny southern california. I heard about your contest from Quiltersal's blog and I'd love to win this wonderful yarn. I love the color!!! Thanks for the contest.

ikkinlala said...

Happy spring!

One of my favourite flowers is crocuses, because they're the first ones that bloom in the spring.

hearts812 said...

I love contests....my favorite flower is usually whatever is in bloom in the garden...but if I had to choose one I would have to say peonies...they are lucious.

I'll post a link on my website to your contest.

Jennifer said...

Happy knitting.

Janet McKinney said...

I have left a comment on my blog http://jmckcrafts.blogspot.com/.

It is just coming into autumn here in Australia and we are just getting into the knitting season - so the timing would be wonderful down-under...

My favourite flower - can't beat a red rose - especially one that smells divine.

Janet McKinney

Renna said...

I have only heard about Malabrigo, and from what I've heard, it would seem to be the 'cream of the crop' of the yarn world.

I posted about the contest on my blog today, along with a link back to you.

I read about it on both Major Knitter's and Wool Winder's blog, so I guess you can decide who should get the extra entry! ;-Þ

By the way, I'll be back, even when the contest is over. I really like your blog! :-)

Nichole said...

Happy Spring - I'd love to enter, the color is awesome! My fave flower is Gerber Daisy.
Chan sent me.

Lissa Jane said...

I love spring... but its autumn here in australia.. my favourite smell is gardenia.. I have about 50 gardenia bushes in my front garden, and it smells like heaven out there.. we had a wet summer, so they are a bit confused and only blooming profusely now!

Happy Easter to you...
I got the link from Paula - "the quilter"'s blog!

Åsa - "LaOsica" said...

WOW! I couldn´t resist this. Spring seems far away right now, we just got snow in Sweden.
My favorite flower is brunkulla (swedish), a type of orchid.

Diana (Sade´s blog) showed me the way here!

km said...

I think I love all flowers. But, right now, my favorite are the butterfly bushes we have in the front yard. The humming birds love them too. I've never tried Malabrigo...I'd love to see what all the fuss is about.

Mim said...

Finally, Spring is here. I posted about my favorite flower and linked to your blog. Please enter me in your contest. I have a friend that just bought this great yarn in a green and blue colorway. It's gorgeous!

Kim said...

I am so ready for spring, seeing as how we got 10" of snow yesterday.

My favorite part of spring are lilacs also. When we move next summer, that is a requirement. Either it already have lilacs or we plant some. Either way, I can't wait.

I got here from Laverna at Ridiculous Obsession

Pilar said...

Hi, Aasa sent me to join. My favorite flowers are magnolias. Very hard to see in my side of the pond, because of the weather I suppose. I indulge myself sometimes with some magnolia lotion from Marks & Spencers, not the real thing but better than nothing :)

Theresa N. said...

Beautiful yarn, I'd love to work with this. My favorite flower is Gardenia or keep in the purple family Lavender.

Happy Spring!! I am in love with that yarn! I've never knitted anything beyond a scarf or a dishrag, but I am now knitting a prayer shawl for a friend with the emerald blue malabrigo. It's my first wool endeavor! Thanks for a great contest!!

That would be 'pretty snow pictures'. :P

Jen said...

Chan Knits sent us your way!

I love the colorway of the Malabrigo, but haven't had the chance yet to try the yarn.

Favorite spring flower: I'd have to agree with you scent wise. I love the smell of lilacs. Hopefully, the five in my yard that we had to cut back after an ice storm will perk back up, but for looks, I love the simple elegance of calla lilies.

veekcee said...

Happy Spring! Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I found out about your contest through NH Knitting Mama. Hopefully this comment will link to my blog.

veekcee said...

Oh, I forgot to mention that your contest is mentioned in my blog. :)

Turtle said...

beautiful yarn! Malabrigo is a new yarn to myself, never seen it in person but it always looks so nice knit up. Purple!! Happy spring to you! It is so funny how much snow is still around the area yet our trees are flowerig and bulbs up!

Mokihana said...

What a wonderful contest! Thank you! My favorite flowers are tropical, plumeria, pikake, and hibiscus. Here on the mainland I love lilacs too, and also daphne. Oh my goodness, the fragrance of daphne!!

susan said...

Suzy Girl said...

Happy Spring!! What a lovely time of year! I love Malabrigo and that color is luscious!! My blog partner, jenny girl from "Two Crazy Knit Chicks" posted about your contest and encouraged me to come say hello!
As for my favorite flower, mmmm.... hard to choose just one, but I love peonies.

evergreenknits said...

Happy Spring!

Lilacs and lily of the valley have always been my favorite spring flowers, but now that I've moved to a citrus-growing state I need to add grapefruit and lemon blossoms to the list. I never knew how sweet they were!

You don't need to enter me into the contest (last thing I need is more wool!), but I did post about your contest on WiKnit, my knitting contest blog.

Awesome Mom said...

Daffodils are my all time favorite spring flower. They are so bright and cheery after a dreary winter. I found this contest through Wiknit.

Robin C said...

Happy Spring. I LOVE MALABRIGO YARN.

Robin

J. Denae said...

I love purples, so peonies are my favorites... they come in so many lovely shades!!

Elaine said...

The yarn looks absolutely beautiful - and purple is my favorite color, so please count me in.

I am posting this on my blog, and hopefully some people will come over from there.

I'll try the e-mail thingy too - I've never even noticed it before.

And lilacs are my favorite flower too - for all of the reasons you mentioned.

purple-power said...

Happy Spring to you.

I just found out about your contest from Elaine at elaine-knitting.

My favorite flowers are all purple: especially lilacs and irises.

I'm going to try to e-mail you.

I've never tried Malabrigo and would love to.

teabird said...

Oh, my favorite flowers are lavender - they look so delicate and they have such a lovely scent --

Happy spring to you!

teabird at Ravelry

Lisa said...

Hmm... I can't choose between daffodils and lilacs. I love them both!

Robin said...

So many Spring flowers!! I LOVE Jonquils / Buttercups. They just look happy! Fragrance-wise --- I have to say my favorite are Hyacinths. Such a wonderfully fragrant flower! I found you through Chan's blog and I'll be sure to link to you contest on my blog! The Malabrigo looks wonderful! My favorite yarn to fondle! Happy Spring!

ellen said...

I came here from Chan--and Grace, too! I'll certainly mention this contest in my blog, while HOPING I WIN IT, lol!!

My favorite is the lowly crocus, it's a hardy little thing peeping out of the frosty, even snowy ground! Love them!

lsbaldree said...

Got the link to your contest from wool winder, but wasn't sure what you have to do. Love your blog and the yarn. Will definitely be keeping an eye on your blog.

lsbaldree@sbcglobal.net

Angela said...

what a gorgeous color Malabrigo! thank you for offering it!

at our old house, we had five ancient lilacs, and oh! how i loved their colors and scents!

we have moved to the beach, however, and lilacs don't do so well, so i must be content with my hyacinths, also lovely, early, fill the house with wonderful scent!

knittingpanda said...

I posted a couple days ago and then just realized today that I was supposed to post my favorite flower. So I just wanted to post it now. My favorite flowers are roses but I only like coral or peach colored ones.

artsyandi said...

Happy Easter! Personally I love Lily of the Valley because they are so dainty and smell so sweet. My grandmother used to pick them and put them into little bud vases all over her house, so the smell of them brings back a lot of great memories for me too.

Her favorite color was purple too. If I win this yarn I will think of her the entire time I knit. What a fantastic gift that would be!


artsyandi@gmail.com

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

What a generous prize! And the colorway is beautiful. Your contest is the third I've posted about on my blog. It's also only the third entry in my blog. My favorite flowers are great big tall spikes of Gladiolus, particularly the pale green and the ebony.

Emily said...

We thought it was spring where we live but we've been having snow for the past 4 days!

My favorite flowers are Gerber Daisies. I just love the different colors and especially when they're all together in a vase. They make me so happy. :)

Happy spring to you!

Shirley said...

Buttercups!

Knit and fall back in it said...

Tulips are my favorite. I can't get enough of them, I have them all over my yard, they just don't last long enough.

Josee said...

Happy Spring! I csn't wait for the flowers to come out, my favorites are lilacs and marigold! The yarn looks so awesome. I posted this contest on my blog.

Tante J said...

Happy Spring! I learned of your contest from WiKnits and will post a link shortly to my own blog.

My favorite season, perhaps because I know my birthday will arrive soon! I love the huge splash of color that it brings. The spring I graduated from high school (many, many moons ago!) I had the opportunity to go to the Keukenhof Tulip Festival outside of Amsterdam. What a sight to see. Literally millions of tulips. And the only pictures I have are from an old Instamatic. I'd love to go back with the real thing!

edina said...

Tough question - there are so many beautiful flowers! I do like Gerbera Daisies though...they are just so happy-looking. :)

Craftyfox said...

Snowdrops especially the tall varieties are my spring favourites as they herald the start of another year and daylight hours lengthening.

Summer flower is english old rose 'Evelyn'. The colour is great, its a beautiful shape and smells divine.
Autumn is the dahlia as theybloom until the last frost.. umm gone on a bit too much but gardening ranks second only too knitting. Saw the comp on Monica's blog.

Miss T said...

Happy Spring!

I love tiny little grape hyacinths. They've been my favorite since I can remember.

tripletsmom said...

Happy Spring! My favorite flowers are daisies & irises.

Jennifer said...

I'm visiting from Amanda's blog. Such pretty Malabrigo! Incidentally, two of my favorite flowers--hydrangeas and hyacinths--come in colors similar to the Malabrigo. Blog link to come.

ambermoggie said...

happy spring, my favourite flowers are out at the moment, tulips:)

cthulhulovesme said...

Happy spring! My favorite flower isn't really a spring flower-- I always think about sunflowers in the middle of summer, at least. But it's lovely to watch life start again after the bleakness of winter.

Jen C said...

Happy spring! I think tulips are fun and they come in so many colors too.

Sharon Rose said...

I've always loved azaleas because my Mom used to grow them. They're so perky and happy!

But last spring I drove around the English countryside on vacation and mustard flowers were EVERYWHERE - they have a fantastic spicy scent and are daffodil yellow. Can't beat that!

artinreality said...

Oh, please enter me. It would be lovely to be able to try the much talked about malabrigo yarn. I hear it is pure yumminess!

Lucette said...

My favourite spring flowers are crocuses as they are among the first to come through the snow. Great blog.

adrienne said...

My high fever kept me from answering my fav flowers the other day, still ill but fever under control! smile.. I love lilacs as well, the ultimate flower. But hydrangeas are nice as well. In Hawaii spring to me always meant the yellow cactus "finger" flowers.

Katie K said...

Happy Spring (at last!)! I love Persian violets. The yarn is very beautiful. I don't have a blog, but I'm glad you have one. Adrienne sent me.

Susan said...

I'm coming over from Ariel's Knitting, another member of the FCS3 swap (yes, I'm blogstalking my fellow swappers! *grin*).

I have two favorite flowers---no, wait, three!

The first two are Irises and Calla Lilies---so beautiful. The third isn't usually seen in boquets and such, but it's the Orange Blossom---they're blooming in my yard right now on the orange trees and I *love* that smell! *sigh* It sings to my soul and tells me I'm home.

I'll be linking your contest on my blog here in a couple of minutes as well! Happy Spring...and Happy Malabrigo!

Anne.

Amazing! Winter's end brought winter in The Netherlands :-) We have snow here, and it started on Sunday. My favourite flower is the daffodil. Its yellow colour makes me want to sing a song!

But for now... a good vegetable soup will keep me warmer!

ami said...

Wonderful idea and beautiful yarn. I've never tried Malabrigo, keeping my fingers crossed . . .

Steph said...

california poppies are one of my favorites....they are going crazy in my yard right now.

The Durukuli Lounge said...

I found your blog & contest via Afternoon Moon, what a lovely thing you're doing! I'm partial to hibiscus - there are so many different kinds and they're all so gorgeous. Plus they go so well with my tiki bar - now that it's Spring and it's warming up, I can sit outside at the bar and enjoy the weather!

Esqueci-me de dizer que as minhas flores preferidas são as violetas, as bunganvilias e as Peonías.
Uma boa primavera

I would love to enter your contest, I've never even seen Malabrigio in person so would love to try it. My favorite spring flowers are Lilacs too, I can't wait for spring to get here! Thank you for doing this contest. AfternoonMoon sent me here from her blog. :-)

Came over from Noricum/Soapbox's blog. My favourite flower is the next unexpected one I see, bobbing happily on its stem, and unthreatened by any plucking hands :)

Here via Afternoon Moon. One of my favorite flowers is pansies, because they seem like cheerful faces looking up at me. I also love old-fashioned roses, where each type is not only a different color but has a subtly different scent.
