A New Year's Contest! (somebody's going to win!!!)




BRRRR! It is so cold outside and the world is covered in a blanket of snow - so I am staying warm and planning for a year of fun and contests for my blogging friends.

The first contest is going to start off with a fabulous prize! My knitting friends might want to choose these Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles. Knitters everywhere know that these needles are wonderful and practical. My knitting life changed when I found these needles - you will LOVE them.


I am just realizing as I look at this picture that 2 of the pink cables are missing as they are in use in my projects. Not to worry - the winners set will be complete and brand new as I will ship it from the manufacturer straight to your door!.

For my friends who do not knit (How can that be?) - then the prize will be one of my lovely knitted birds nests. Just looking at this little nest will bring thoughts of spring to your soul! The little nest will be complete with 2 little bird eggs. These little nests are made from my knitting stash - so no two are alike. You will love the one I am making for you now!


Don't you just think SPRING when you see these little nests?




So - how do you win? Easy-----
Just follow the blog from now until February 12. Leave a comment on any or all of the postings between today and February 12 - you can enter as often as you want. I will randomly choose a posting and a winner at noon on that date and will post your name on the blog. You will have 3 days to contact me and give me your address. The winner can choose between the Knitting needles or the knitted birds nest. If the nest is chosen - then I will have another contest specifically geared towards Knitters to give away the Needles.
For my blogging friends who do not live in the United States - not to worry. I will deliver these prizes any where in the world.
This is going to be a year of fun with lots of contests and great prizes. So follow along in this blogging adventure---
Tell all your friends about the contest and send them to this blog!

Dee said...

Hi Vicki...Janet sent me an e-mail to connect me to your blog. I knew you were talented but MY HEAVENS!...SUCH talent!!! The nests are lovely but I REALLY love that blue wrap you made! I'm not a very consistent knitter but hope to get better in 2010. I simply marvel at how you have the time to accomplish all that you do! It would seem that just being a NICU nurse would use up all your energy. Do you ever sleep??!! The needles are intriguing. Perhaps having a set of them would be just the motivation I need to become the knitter I would love to be. Happy New Year and many blessings...dee carney P.S. I too love The Biltmore

Diva Kreszl said...

oh my how beautiful those bird nests are...please count me in!

I have to thank Dawn from The Feathered Nest for pointing me to your blog. I am not the greatest knitter in the world, but love seeing other people's creations. Those nests are just fabulous, I can just imagine one of those on one of the very deep window sills in our cottage in France. The little window by the front door. Perfect.

Lady Farmer said...

Oh, my! Your nests are an absolute wonder! I don't knit and I didn't know anyone could make something like that from knitting!
Dawn at The Feathered Nest sent me. I will put your contest on my sidebar and be back to visit again!

Hi Vicki!! I found you through Dawn at The Feathered Nest. I am so
impressed with your birds nests. I

more incentive...well your nests have sparked my interest in knitting again!! I would love either the needles or the nest!
Please enter me in your giveaway and thank you so much for the chance! Hugs from Susan in Georgia.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hi Vicki...
I was so excited when I found your giveaway through the blog of another. My goal this year is to learn to knit. I want to learn so badly. I have a new grandbaby coming in June and I want to learn to make a simple blanket.

If I win, the needles are coming to me, even tho I truly love the nests, I so want to learn. I have some really big needles I have been trying to learn with, not doing very good with them, but I just want to learn a basic stitch.

Do you think there is hope for me. I actually wrote my Pink Saturday post about it 2 weeks ago. I even bought a bag. I had several people post some ideas, but it hasn't helped so far. Are there any books or web sites that you could recommend? I thought I would check with JoAnn's fabrics, closest to me and see if they had anyone teaching a class soon, but sadly they do not. I am back to square one.

Many thanks in advance for any advice, as scrolling through your blog, I see you have knitting projects with you wherever you go. Looks like you had a beautiful blue knitting project over a chair at the beach. So elegant sweetie. So elegant.

Country hugs, Sherry

Jeannie said...

Thank you for the tour of Biltmore. My inlaws used to live near there and I loved visiting there. Your nests are beautiful. I have crocheted some, but never knitted one. If I was a bird, I'd choose your nests! Have a wonderful weekend.

Kristin said...

Your nests are beautiful! I would love the needles!
Thanks

Denise said...

So glad I found your blog! I now have you in my google reader so I won't miss a post! I love to knit (taught myself last year)
Thanks for the chance to win!

Thanks for your generosity and sharing.

MjM said...

Beautiful nest and a neat contest. i would love to win needles. I knit all the time and my goal for the new year is to knit for babies. no grandchildren in my future - i am knitting for families who are left behind while there husbands serve overseas -i can't imagine being alone at this time and hope my knitting makes the new mommies feel their sacrifice is appreciated- so the needles would be put to good use. I will be watching to see pictures of what you are knitting for babies to get ideas.

Sandee said...

That would be a hard choice. I would love and use the needles, but golly gee wally, those nests are to die for! I want ten. :) LOL!

In the dreariness of all the rain, the beauty of your nests brightens my heart with the thoughts of spring. And the knitting needles, inspiration for the not-too far-off projects.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh - no access to a computer when I was out of town. But I'm back now and still lovin' those nests.

Heather Jacks said...

Your nest are enchanting! This would be a hard choice. I have a 4 month old whose nursery I decorated with birds. But I also want to start knitting more to make him things and things for the house that will be part of his memories...might have to deliberate on this one while I day dream. Thanks for the fun opportunity!

Heather Jacks said...

I couldn't find your link to Etsy :(

SuZeQ said...

Sigh. I just have to win these nests because I've already cleaned off a spot on the shelf for them. Sigh. Please!?!

SuZeQ said...

Build it (translated: win it) and they will come.

SuZeQ said...

This contest is so much fun - I gotta tell you. I like that there's a lot of time between the initial post and the draw-date. AND, the fact that we're allowed to post a comment every day ... this will (or may not!) increase my chance to win these nests. I absolutely ADORE them.

As we speak I can hear a mamma bird out there chirping right now. I think she's looking for a nest for her little babies. I need a nest!

SuZeQ said...

Oops - I forgot to sign my name to the post above (you know - the one where mamma bird is chirping!)

SuZeQ said...

My birdies need a place to nest. How about one of your nests?

Deb said...

I would absolutely LOVE to win one of your nests! It is definitely one of a kind!

SuZeQ said...

It's warm(ish) today and nice and sunny but things are about to go "winter" on us here. Those birdies need nests. Please hurry them to me.

SuZeQ said...

Lynn said...

I love the nest, it's so sweet and unique! Thanks for a chance to call it my own.
Thank you also for visiting my blog, feel free to visit anytime =)

ShellyRaeWood said...

these are literally the coolest knitted thing I have ever seen!! Totally cool....good luck with the pink projects!! :)

SuZeQ said...

Ohhhhhhhhh my birdies and I really really want these nests. Okay - we really really NEED these nests.

LemonyRenee' said...

Okay, obviously, I am late to this party, but PLEASE count me in. And you know what? I am a knitter and certainly aspire to have a complete set of cables like that, but I think I might just have to select that knitted nest. Absolutely charming. I must have one . . better yet, I'd love the pattern . . . but I won't ask.

I'll be back to comment manically until the giveaway and probably long past that.

SuZeQ said...

Brrrrrrrrrrr. It's cold here again and my birdies are shivvering. Hurry those nests to our address, please.

SuZeQ said...

Have you packed up those nests in a box with my address yet? We're waiting - patiently!

SuZeQ said...

Ohhhhhhhhh, don't you feel sorry for my birdies? They're homeless. Hurry!

SuZeQ said...

Baby it's cold outside. My birdies need to snuggle down in your nest of love!

SuZeQ said...

For Texas, the weather outside is frightful and my birdies are cold and need a soft warm nest. Please hurry yours to us!

Heather Jacks said...

O.k. I think I have decided. If I were fortunate enough to win. I would want the nest. I t would be ***Magical** on our nature alter.
