One Millionth Visitor Giveaway

It’s difficult to imagine what one million people look like or for that matter what one million pounds would look like.

A year ago I said that I would have one million visitors to my blog in this year and here I am at 996,909 visitors to date. I have no way of knowing who will be the 1,000,000 visitor but thought I should celebrate with a giveaway.

Next problem what to giveaway. . . . . Okay the winner will get a $50.00 gift voucher to spend in either my Etsy Store or my ravelry store. Everyone who enters will also be a winner as I will email everyone an exclusive crochet pattern PDF.

To win the bonus ‘mystery’ prize which will be a package of indulgent goodies you will need to leave an estimate of how many visitors will have been to my blog on Friday 26th November at 12.00 GMT.

So what do you need to do to be in to win.

1. Visit either of the above stores and have a browse and leave a comment here telling me which is your favourite pattern and why.

2. If you wish to be entered twice, if you link from you blog to this post, again leave a comment and I will enter you twice.

3. To allow me to send you the exclusive pattern please email me at thesunroomuk@googlemail.com in the title mark it as ‘one millionth giveaway’ and let me have your email address to send the pattern to.

Best of luck to everyone. I will let this giveaway run until Friday the 26th November, 2010 to allow as many as possible to participate.

I read your blog several times a week and being a fellow crocheteteer, I always seeing what others are doing! I must say it is very hard for me to choose which pattern I like the best. teh shawls are some of my fav's but, the one that keeps pulling my eyes back to is, The Big Snuggle Alpaca Scarf. I want this scarf! it looks so soft and warm and the color is one of my fav colors of blue. I can imagine myself on my way to church ot coming home from work with this beautiful scarf around my neck. What a great give-a-way! Thanks for all of your wonderful Ideas!

Kidget29 said...

Picking one is too hard but since I HAVE to. the J'adore Granny Blanket. I love the different size squares and the colors and the whole mix just looks perfect together.

hershey038 said...

How many to visit from now until the 26th? I'll say.....577. Thank you for your generous offer! I will be popping in again and again! LOL

This is one of my favorites crochet places to visit. Thank you for sharing free patterns. Your designs are my favorites because they're fashionable, trendy, different without being weird and directions are easy to follow and clear. Hard to pick one, but currently, I think the Circular ribbed shrug is my favorite because I haven't seen anything else like it, it would go with everything, can wear it as dresy item or as casual item. also would be perfect layer to add a little warmth without being too heavy.
A million visitors is a milestone for sure, I think you will have 999,909 visitors by months end.mmcrochet on Ravelry

Kicking Kay said...

I love the Forget Me Not Comfort Shawl and the mobius shalw/scarf patterns and have been thinking of making one for a while now.
I found your blog through an email from "All Free Crochet" it linked to your spiral scarf pattern.

Amanda said...

I love the Grandad Lap Blanket on the etsy site.

Nana Go-Go said...

Picking just one of your fabulous patterns is not easy!It would have to be the Heart Rag Rug, which would be perfect for my Grandaughter`s new bedroom.

Nana Go-Go said...

Marianne said...

I like many of your patterns so it's hard to choose one... but the Mardi Gras scarf is the one I'd probably want to make first.

Angela said...

I have found that my most favorite items to crochet are shawls and wraps. Living by the ocean it gets a bit chilly in the evening but I want my coverups to be fun and fashionable!! I choose as my favorite the Granny Stipes Moibius Wrap...I can definitely see that making a statement over a strapless sundress!

Angela said...

I created a link to this on my blog. I know I don't have a ton of followers but I'm still new at this! Again, thanks for the opportunity!

Mel said...

Well, I just had a very enjoyable jaunt through both shops, and I must say it is difficult to choose just one pattern that I like the most. I really enjoyed the rugs - as a matter of fact I recently acquired some old sheets from my mom that I will be "stripping" up to crochet into a rug! The ribbed patterns also caught my attention, grandpa's square looks particularly warm. However, if I MUST choose just one, I would have to say the Cotton Circular Shrug Crochet Pattern is the one that caught my eye and practically screamed at me - it is very attractive and looks like it would be a nice addition to several people's wardrobes that I know!

Thanks for a great blog, by the way!!

Mel said...

For the bonus giveaway, my guess for the number of visitors to your blog by 26th November is 998,716.

:)

Mel said...

I put a quick post up on my blog advertising your contest! You can see my little blurb here:

Your designs are marvellous, thank you for sharinf with us.

Spangster said...

I linked to this from my blog.
And I'd have to say my favorite pattern of yours would have to be the Chunky Ribbed Berets. I love berets, and this one is especially awesome. As for how many visitor to your site, I'll guess 1,000,000. Though it would be really weird if it is exactly one million.

Christine said...

I just found your blog a few weeks ago and I love looking at all your great ideas!
I love your grandad squares - a nice, unique twist on granny's.
My guess: 1,001,053 visitors.

Christine said...

I have made a link to your blog on my blog. :)

Kadri. said...

Hi everyone. I predict about 1 000 562 guests by that time.

My favourite pattern was hard to choose but that would be the Vintage Style Granny Blanket.

Chaya Mills said...

Hiya,

I really liked many of your patterns, but if I had to choose one as a favourite, I'd choose the Glisten Wrap, for its elegance, and (I know you shouldn't choose a pattern based on this) I LOVE the colours!

My e-mail address is morahchaya@gmail.com
