It’s a Giveaway!

It’s a giveaway! Woo Hoo! My very first – so be patient with me, I’m making it up as I go along – and am WAY not as with it as some of the other power bloggers out there who do this all the time. J

Okay – with Independence Day fast approaching – seriously, can you believe how soon it is?! – I thought it would be cool to give something away to pay respect to Old Glory. It’s a loose interpretation, but I’ve got a pair of hand knit pot holders in red white and blue that will fit the bill.

I know – not as exciting as a mixer or food processor – but it’s a little more up our alley financially! LOL!

These pot holders are my VERY favorite to use – I have made my own for quite a few years now, and recently found this pattern – and well, I’ll never make another! You can use any old cotton or heat-friendly fiber to make them, but the type of cotton that I’ve used is something a little special. I’m convinced that’s why they’re so springy and shiny and great to use!

So – here are the rules! If you would like to be entered in the contest to win this giveaway, please leave a comment answering the following question:

What are your plans for
the 4th of July?

I’ll take comments until Midnight on Wednesday, June 24th, 2009 (Pacific time zone).

And then I’ll pick one winner – in the most random method possible! Okay?

  1. The fourth of July I love the parade. But we do it a bit different than most.

    We watch it on the cable channel from town. I do not miss the heat and sun, nor the noise, I hate the noise. And this way if I see a float I like I can rewind it and watch it twice since we have a dvr.

    We grill out and I make potato salad to go with whatever I cook out. It is just us. We never do get togethers. We are sad and lame that way. We live at the end of a dead end road and like to stay by ourselves most of the time. Heck ALL of the time.

    I like the pot holders you have made. My MIL who passed away last year used to make dish cloths like that. I miss her very much. Her birthday was July 6th.


    • Nancy,

      Thanks for entering the giveaway! I like your method of celebrating the 4th of July – just the way that works for you! 🙂

      You know what? Since there were only two entries – I’m gonna say:


      If you will email me at with your mailing address, I’ll pop these potholders in the mail to you right away, okay?


  2. We’ll be staying home and I’ll buy a bunch of veggies for tempora. We’ll set up the ‘Fry Daddy’ on the back deck & stuff ourselves with veggie & beef tempora, and homemade sauces. July 4th is usually a low key day for us. I don’t like crowds very much & it’s so hot outside.

    Thanks for hosting. I wish I could knit because your potholders are lovely.

    • Lisa,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to enter the giveaway! I’m seriously liking your tempura thing – yummy! There was a time… long, long ago… when Red Robin had a tempura veggie appetizer. It was SO good!

      Regarding the giveaway – since there were only two entries – I’m saying:


      I’m sending Nancy the red, white, and blue potholders. I’d whip out a set for you in the same colors, but I’m out of those colors! What colors do you have in your kitchen? I’ll knit you a pair in no time and drop them in the mail to you!

      Send me an email with your color preference and mailing address to and I’ll get cracking on those, okay?

      Thanks for your participation! 🙂
