My 200th post

Part B:
A GIVE AWAY
So here is the scoop, I have given much thought to what I should do as a give away for my 200th post. This is all I could come up with. Sorry, girls, I just could not match Hot Tub Lizzy's give away. I think if I had tried, you would have thought I had gone off the deep end. Maybe that taking care of my mother had become to much for me.
So if you wish to become the "lucky" recipient of my yet unfinished 200th post give away, this is what you have to do.
1. Leave me a comment.
2. Link to me on your blog. You know we all want more readers.
3. Tell all of your bloggy friends about me, And
4. If you are my daughters.......nah, that would not be fair. They have to enter just like anyone else.
One entry for your comment and one entry for linking me.
And.... one entry for telling your bloggy friends all about my contest.
They are made using Panda Silk by Crystal Palace Yarns. 52% Bamboo, 43% Superwash Merino Wool and 5% combed Silk. I have NEVER used such a fine and soft yarn. Ever!!!
To my guy readers, go ahead and leave me a comment, I know your wives will love to wear these.
They are made to fit an average size foot, and they do have a stretch factor to them.
So with all said and done, let's let the comment love flow!!!

Now, if I can figure out the random generator thingy, I will use it. If not, it will just be the ole names in the hat trick.
I will be gone this weekend, so when I return home on Monday evening, I will do the drawing and hopefully have a winner posted for you by Tuesday morning.
Good Luck everyone:)

Wellll, I live in Indiana where, it seems, we get snow every other day! :) So, I'd love to win a pair of these beauties. I wear thick socks and/or slippers around the house all the time. They look lovely!

Regards, Sandra

Aussie Therese said...

Oh pick me, pick me. Those socks look fantastic and since we are just about to start winter here in Australia they would be great for keeping me warm.

I will link tomorrow to you and post all about you when I write my quick 7.

Therese said...

Pick me, dear friend, my feet are so COLD!

We are already linked, but I am oging to post about you now!

FalkFamily said...

I would loooove those beautiful socks - it's so darn cold around here lately. Plus if you pick me, there wouldn't even be any postage as I know where you live!

P.S. So happy the appointment went well for your mother. My grandmother is not going to be able to have her surgery yet, as when she went for the pre-op physical on Wednesday, they have found something wrong with her aorta. Waiting for an echocardiogram now.

FalkFamily said...

Oh, not sure how to link you - but you are on my sidebar and I am writing a post about your contest right now!

Consider me officially signed up for the sock drawing. I have a bit of a sock fetish; I have some outrageous-looking ones that embarrass my kids half to death. Those socks look gorgeous, and I'll keep my fingers crossed! :) Congrats on your 200th post. I'm just getting started; I'm hoping to post #9 this weekend.

Teri said...

Homestay Mama said...

Ok, Gramma2Many. I'm running late, as usual, but here is my comment to enter me into your contest. I'd love a pair of warm socks hand knit by one of my favorite friends. Now I'll go post about your contest and put a link in it straight to this post!

Hugs, dear friend.

Tatersmama said...

Homestay Mama sent me on over... So, pleased to meet you!

Winter's on it's way over here in Australia and with the poor insulation in these homes, my feet are like blocks of ice for months on end. *sob*
These socks would be simply heavenly and my tootsies would be eternally grateful!!!

Hey Conservative Grammy - you and I would get along GREAT.

Taters mama told me to come over her, and when she speaks - I listen!

I'll head on back to my place, and send out the word, cause everybody need more readers, and nice socks!

Oh - I see Homestay Mama, beat me hear.

Congrats on your 200th post.

Rebecca Jo said...

Nothing like hand knitted socks...

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

I have come over to visit from Tatersmama. Those socks look like a dream, warm feet, that would be a dream from the hot summer days of last year.

A great giveaway, thanks.

Jen

Neas Nuttiness said...

Since Homesty Mama says you are her good fiend (and cause Tatersmama told me too), I just posted about your giveaway on my blog.
So - now I EXPECT to win (wink wink;)

Susie said...

Congratulations on your 200th! What a great accomplishment!

Mrs. Blue said...

What a great giveaway that I would LOVE, love, love to have!!!!

KelliSue Kolz said...

Those are cute socks! My girls (3 of them) and I will make the boys envious as we share single socks amongst ourselves, pretending we're house elves, and have been given our freedom from housework with the gift of a sock!

I linked to you from my blog. And yes, all those kids are mine too!

OOOH, those sockies sound so scrumptious, so, if I link you to EACH of my bloggies, does that count for each time? I will do it anyway. Should I tell you each time, guess I should. LOL, green is my favorite color, those socks look like you are making them for me!
