Psst: Contest Number One closes at midnight Wednesday Friday August 15th 17th, 2007.

If you haven't posted at your blog yet, now's the time to do so! Please post a link to the Campanula for the Cure KAL on your blog AND tell us what yarn(s) you are using (or dreaming of) to make your Campanula socks. And if you want to post early pix of your WIP Campanula, please go ahead!

I'd really love to be able to include everyone in this draw, but unless you post at your blog, you won't get a chance to win this time. Several of you have a blogger account with one or more KALs listed in your profile, but when I go there I find no individual blog for you nor any link to your own webpage on another blogging host. If you do have a blog elsewhere (not on Blogger), please list it on your Blogger account so I can find your page via the participants list. You will also need to enable access to your profile for me.

If you don’t have a blog of your own - well, you do have a Blogger account so it will be easy to create one there, even if only for the purpose of posting about your KAL activities and a link or two so folks will know how to get to the KAL. Then you can participate in the contests, which involve Campanula-related posting at your blog, and you might win some lovely prizes! (As I said before, spreading the word is my benign ulterior motive behind this KAL and especially contest number one.)
UPDATE:
Due to unforseen circumstances here at casa MezzoDiva there will be a brief delay. I will draw a random entry from all the eligible contestants on Friday at midnight.

Psst! stragglers (shhhh!) you can still sneak in. But you didn't hear it from me... ;)
The winner will receive one of several gorgeous hand-dyed skeins of fingering or sport weight merino sock yarn I purchased recently from Maggie. I have at least one of most of these as well as a couple that aren't pictured. To drool over more pix of Maggie's luscious tone-on-tone colourways, check out her Flickr gallery.

Once you've posted at your blog, please leave me a comment here with the date of that post so I know where to go look for it! I've seen posts at many of your blogs already (and thanks to those of you who posted a while ago). But a small reminder might be good insurance, so just leave me a comment.

And keep those Campanula updates coming!

I just posted about it on my blog, today's date, 16th August. When I get the pattern I will select my yarn from my extensive (and growing) stash & edit the post!

Friender said...

Just posted it on my blog. friender.blogspot.com. Hoping to use some Cherry Tree Hill amethyst Supersock to make Campanula socks, but I'm a novice sock knitter so we'll see how it goes!

Just posted a photo of my yarn and posted the link to here again. I am swatching at work hoping I don't need to change needle size to get gauge.

Sachi said...

Yay! It's posted!

I bought my yarn at my LYS last night. Found some beautiful PINK yarn in Schaefer Yarn Anne. It's going to be beautiful. Will case on this weekend. You can get to my Blog by clicking on my name. ;-)
