100th Post Contest!

OK, so I wanted to have the prizes ready to show before I posted this, but I just haven't found the time in the last couple of days to get them together. I plan on getting them tomorrow and I'll post them then.

All you have to do is this: Leave a comment on this post explaining what your favourite knit or yarn has been. If you post this on your blog and let me know the link you'll get another entry. If you're referred here by someone let me know and they'll get another entry. After a week I will use a random number generator to pick 3 winners.

That's it! Good luck, I'll post the results after next Wednesday!

Favorite knit...hmm. I'd say the Monster Slippers I made from SnB Nation. The directions were horribly confusing, but I loved the finished object.
Favorite yarn: Malabrigo, in any form!
I've added a link in my blog as well.

My favorite knit has been Sahara by Stitch Diva and the yarn that I used for it is my favorite one to date--Handmaiden Great Big Sea Silk. I am currently knitting a project in Rowan Calmer which comes pretty close to being another favorite!

I found out about your contest from PHD Knitter.

I don't know what my favourite knit has been (maybe my first pair of socks), but my favourite yarn was some handspun that a friend of my mom's spun for me. It may be because of the sentiment rather than the yarn itself (although it was nice yarn too). For commercial yarns, I'm not sure what I'd choose - there are too many that I like.

I love Mountain Colors yarn. Their colors are rich and vibrant. I love the hand of their yarns.

My favorite knit, given the fact that I have knit it 5 or 6 times, has to be the ubiquitous Clapotis from Knitty. I knit it in Red Heart twice, silk twice and Blue Heron Rayon once. I love all the silk yarns. The Red Heart versions were renamed Clappygans. They were awful to me, but my friends loved them. Bless their hearts, they didn't know any better.

My favorite knit has been my Simple Knitted Bodice and favorite yarn? Too hard to choose but the ones that are definitely up there are Handmaiden Sea Silk and Malabrigo. I read about your contest on k8's blog, kniterations.

Favorite yarn: STR Twisted. I've only knit a swatch with this, but I thought that I should announce our engagement.

I think my favorite knit so far is the felted marsupial bag I made from SnB. It's not such a great bag, but it was the first thing I ever made from a pattern. I was so proud.

I came here through k8 as well! Happy 100th! I'm almost there myself.

(P.S. you should come join my contest:
