Knitting Scholar’s First Contest!

Since several publishers have been kind enough to provide me with review copies, it seems selfish to keep ALL of them, so it seemed a good time to have a contest.

In fact, it’s a multi-part contest! You’ve got more than one way to win!

Here’s what you have to do. Either…

1. Link to Knitting Scholar on your blog or website. That gets the blog-owner’s name entered in the drawing. (Note–the blog-owner must leave a comment here with a link to her blog post to be eligible. Otherwise, how would I know?)

2. Leave a comment ON THIS POST. (Preferably telling me something nice, like why you like the site, but really, compliments are optional.) This gets you entered in the drawing.

But, wait! There’s more!

3. When you leave your comment, tell me how you found your way here. If you came via a link from someone’s blog, you not only get entered yourself, but the blog who sent you here gets an extra chance to win!

In other words, if, um, Sally links here and mentions the contest–she gets one chance. If five people come here from her blog and leave comments referring to Sally’s blog, not only do they each get one chance to win, but they each give Sally another chance … meaning Sally will now have SIX chances to win.

So, if you have a blog, it behooves you to send as many people over here as you possibly can. And if you found your way here from someone’s blog, it’s a Nice Thing to Do, to tell me how you got here.

And–still more!

4. If you came via RSS feed OR you subscribe to Knitting Scholar’s RSS feed now, say so, and you get Two chances instead of just one! (Those are those “Subscribe” buttons at the top right. You’re on the honor system, here, but I do know what my subscriber numbers look like right now, so I’ve got an idea how many people subscribe already–so, no fibbing!)

5. If you came from another blog and then write your own post linking here–be sure to specify in your comment the name of the blogger who referred you in the first place AND a link to your own blog. (This gives you the chance to get extra chances for yourself, but still Do the Right Thing by making sure the person whose blog you heard about this from gets her extra chance, too.)

So. The technical, small-print stuff.

You must leave comments ON THIS POST to be eligible for the prize drawing. Comments left on any other post will not qualify.

There will be at least two winners (possibly more), who will be selected via some sort of Random-Number Generator.

The contest is open for entrants until … November 15th, 2008. That should give everyone plenty of time to write a post and to give readers a chance to respond. Obviously, I want to give as much chance for the word to spread as possible!

Did I miss anything?

Now, while you’re here–please take a look around!

NOTE: November 16–comments have been closed, and now I have to do all the math to figure out the winners!

    I honestly can’t remember which blog pointed me to your site a while ago, but I have been reading it ever since (and subscribe to the feed!). I love the in-depth reviews you give of books and they have often prompted me to give a book a second look after passing over it the first time around. Thanks for all your thorough work!

  • auntien November 2, 2008, 10:02 pm

    I saw your post on Ravelry. Interesting web site. I wish I’d had a chance to read reviews on some of the poorer choices I’ve made ordering books online.

  • Jeanne November 2, 2008, 10:03 pm

    Saw your post on Ravelry – Will look at the rest of your blog – the title sounds interesting – But you didn’t tell us what books we might win – Knitting librarian wants to know! Thanks

  • Christina November 2, 2008, 10:04 pm

    What a clever way to boost readership. I don’t have a blog, unfortunately. For what it’s worth, I found you on Ravelry.

  • silverarrowknits November 2, 2008, 10:09 pm

    I found out about your site from Ravelry. Oh! I also subscribe to your RSS feed.

  • Kim November 2, 2008, 10:09 pm

    I found you on Ravelry. I like your site! I think it will really help me know which books I simply MUST have…or not. :)

  • Patricia November 2, 2008, 10:09 pm

    I found you on Ravelry. I read some of your reviews. Wow! Just fantastic. A fine collections of book reviews.

  • Katy November 2, 2008, 10:12 pm

    I saw your post on the knitting book talk forum on Etsy. I’ve been clicking through to read your reviews, but the contest inspired me to do something I should have done before- subscribe :)

    I’ve found the reviews to be wonderful- keep up the good work!

  • larndt November 2, 2008, 10:12 pm

    I found you on Ravelry! Looking forward to poking around the blog…

    Hi I found you through Ravelry!

  • rcarlburg November 2, 2008, 10:26 pm

    Just got here from Ravelry. Thanks for offering to share your bounty o’ books!

  • maria November 2, 2008, 10:32 pm

    I think maybe you told me about this site? Or I read it only either your Chappysmom blog or your Punctuality Rules! blog.

    Your contest is a good reminder to update the blog links on there, so I’ll make sure to add this to it! And I already pimped you on Ravelry in Language Lovers! I really hope this venture does well for you. (And I still think it would be cool to somehow do a bi-coastal knitting review podcast together, somehow.)

    maria´s last blog post..Happy Halloween!

  • Leah November 2, 2008, 10:50 pm

    Heyo! I found my way here through your very own post on Ravelry. I thought I’d drop on by. And now I’m glad I did… v. nice site :).

  • --Deb November 2, 2008, 10:58 pm

    I didn’t mention which books are the prizes because I haven’t decided which ones to part with yet. Giving up books is very, very hard for me! (Hence the reason that I have over 3,000 of them in my personal collection–obviously not all knitting books, though.) When it comes time to draw the winners, I’ll look hard at the review copies I’ve already reviewed and will pick out the ones I can bear to part with–but I won’t know until then which ones they’ll be! All I can really promise is that I’ll try to do the drawing on a day when I’m feeling generous (grin).

    In the meantime, though, you can get an idea by seeing which reviewed books were Review copies (it says at the end of the review if it is). If so, they’re possibilities!

  • Hollis November 2, 2008, 11:04 pm

    Great site, I sadly do not have a blog…yet. I put you in my favorites though.

  • orata November 3, 2008, 1:06 am

    I saw this link on the Knitting Books group on Ravelry. Nice site! I’d love to see a review of Knitting Lace in Estonia, and meta-reviews that compare different books–“which EZ book is best,” or “should I buy Montse Stanley or the VK book?” for example.

  • claire piper November 3, 2008, 1:39 am

    I saw your message on Ravelry. Wish I had found you much earlier in the year. I have now subscribed, because what can be better than reading about books before buying the wrong ones.

  • ButterflyKyss November 3, 2008, 4:30 am

    I, too, found you on Ravelry. Isn’t Rav fantastic? Not only is it fantastic in itself, but it leads to all sorts of fantastic sites like this that I never would have known about! I just subscribed to your site, and you should be proud- it’s my first time using an RSS feed! :D

    Great site, keep up the fantastic work, and I’ll be back to keep reading more!

    I found you on Ravelry over the weekend and came via the RSS feed, to which I am subscribed. I’m enjoying the reviews hugely – I’m not a big knitting book buyer, but only because I like to read reviews first! I think your blog might be my downfall (but in a good way).

    I, too, subscribe via Google Reader but got here from Chappysmom(since it’s earlier in the alphabet and I read that feed first…). I’m so glad you do these reviews. They’ve sent me to a few books I would not otherwise have looked at.

    I’m here! And I saw it on Chappysmom. :-)

    I found out about your site from your post on the Ravelry forums. I like that it’s well-organized and there aren’t a lot of pictures on the main page – it’s less important right now, but when I’m at home I have limited monthly bandwidth and it can be really annoying to have to load a lot of pictures I’ve already seen whenever I visit a blog (so your setup is ideal for me).

    I found you through Ravelry, and I’d link you on my blog, but I don’t know how!

    I found you thru Chris’ site (Stumbling over Chaos). I didn’t know about your site before today, but I’m adding it to my Google Reader because I like what I’ve read and am looking forward to reading more of your reviews. Will add you to my blog’s sidebar and post too.

    Hey there, thanks for having the contest. I found you at Stumbling over Chaos.

  • Katerina November 5, 2008, 1:02 am

    I found you from your wonderful interview w/Franklin and the review on his book – because I am a not-so-secret stalker of his. I’ve been following his blog for a few years now. Thanks for the contest! and I was surprised for the voting you didn’t have a ‘both’ or ‘either’ button :)

    I saw your post on Ravelry for this site some… uhm… weeks ago (I guess?) and came here right away. :) I’ve subscribed to your RSS feed twice even – once at home and once on my work laptop. :)

  • Sharon Rose November 5, 2008, 10:39 am

    I’m surprised I didn’t know about you already! I’ll be back… :)

    PS – Came over from WiKnit.

    I found my way through the OZ Knitter web page. I don’t have a web page of my own.
    I am looking forward to reading your book reviews as I have bought a few books that are disappointments. Thanks for entering me. Maureen

  • Donna S. November 5, 2008, 6:44 pm

    Stumbling Over Chaos. Love finding good new blogs.

  • Barbara November 6, 2008, 8:56 am

    I found this on Ravelry. Never heard of Knittingscholar before. Will check this out.

  • Tina Thompson November 6, 2008, 9:20 am

    Good reads, love the info, keep up the good work.

  • Stephani M. November 6, 2008, 10:22 am

    I found you through Ravelry and have subscribed via e-mail (awesome feature).

    I have looked through some of your reviews and really like how your opinions really match up with mine.

    Hi! I just popped over at the recommendation of Ozknitter. I will have to do a little sight seeing while I am here! I promise if I actually do a blog post any time soon I will let you know and I will send people over (who doesn’t love a contest?) although i am not sure anyone actually reads my blog.

    Knit on!

    Found your site through Ozknitter. Love your blog name & the design expecially the graduation cap – looks great.

    Thank you for all the compliments, folks. (I’d say, “Keep them coming,” but that just sounds greedy.)

    Oh, and I love that little graduation cap, too … maybe even too much!

  • Pinkadele November 7, 2008, 6:27 am

    Hey, Wiknit sent me! It’s so good to have someone looking and commenting on the books as well as the knitting cos without… knitting would be a little poo! Will be reading this blog a lot lot more… I’m hopless and what books to pick!

    Pinkadele´s last blog post..Quickie!

  • Jo November 7, 2008, 2:43 pm

    I enjoy reading your reviews–although I am afraid that it has added to my overly-large library. I found out about you via the RSS feed on iGoogle. I subscribe, and have you on my desktop.

  • Annie November 7, 2008, 7:46 pm

    I found the link on Ravelry – on the knitting book talk board. I love your Web site and I think it’s a great idea! More technical than the reviews on Amazon.

  • knitrnh November 8, 2008, 3:17 pm

    I’m sure I found out about your website on Ravelry. That’s where I find out about most everything knitting related! I subscribe to knittingscholar via RSS feed. Keep up the great work; I love this site!

  • TripletMom November 9, 2008, 12:31 pm

    Came here from WiKnit. I will definitely be coming back.

  • Beverly November 10, 2008, 5:04 pm

    i found your site on wiknit when someone posted on my blog about finding my contest there. who knew websites like that (and this) even existed? the world of knitting has opened up new connections for me i never thought possible and to have a site that reviews knitting books is a great resource cuz you never really know what will be in a book unless you first have it front of you. nice to have a first base reference to go to!

    Trudy (knit/pickin’) sent me here… and I have never heard of you before, but I’m SURE to be back!!

    I found you from WiKnit – the contest post!

    Reviewing books….hmmm….that would be an awesome job. Or not cause it would cut into my reading other books!

    Would you believe me if I said I have had this open in my browser for a week and a half now and am just finally getting around to leaving a comment?

    I rather enjoy reading your blog and seeing what is out there in the knitting book world. I came to your site from The Fiber Fetishist’s blog around the time of your inception (maybe?).

    I promptly added you to my Google Reader and am now adding a post on my blog about your contest.

    Hopefully you can get more readers!

    I think I first found your blog via Ravelry. Anyway, I’m a subscriber now, thanks for reviews – very thorough and informative.

  • Sae November 15, 2008, 5:00 am

    Nice blog you have here! I found my way here through Ravelry but form now on I’ll definitely keep an eye on this one :)

  • Janet Laub November 16, 2008, 1:33 am

    I found you through Ravelry. Loved your review of the new Yarn Harlot book! I so agree with you!
