Do You Feel Lucky?

"Depend on the rabbit's foot if you will, but remember it didn't work for the rabbit. "

- R.E. Shay

OK - I let the Plurkies talk me into doing something outrageous. We currently have 942 Evenstar knitters, and it seems some of our more - ahem - enthusiastic members really want to see us reach the big 1000.

Now, I told them this was highly unlikely, since sign-ups end tonight at midnight, but they suggested we could make a final push and reach that elusive number 1000. They wanted to know if we could do some kind of contest.

Well, y'all know how I love a good contest, especially if it involves nothing more from me than emailing a pattern...or two...or three...

How do y'all feel about seventy?

Here's what we're gonna do:

I will give the entire Fellowship of the Ring series (seven patterns - $45 value) FREE to numbers 950, 960, 970, 980, 990, and 1000.

I will also randomly award two free pattern series to current subscribers, to thank you for your support.

If you order the FotR series tomorrow and are the winner, I will refund the full amount on Tuesday.

So spread the word please - email your friends - plurk your pals - post on your blog - discuss in the RAV forums.

And I will extend sign ups one more day: Monday, March 1st - midnight EST.

So...do you feel lucky? Huh? Do ya?

Ha - I love it! I'm already signed up, but I wanted to tell you that your post gave me a much needed smile. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Well, my Paypal payment is sent. Honestly, I was going to get the Evenstar pattern anyway--and the FotR set, too, for that matter. Why not at least Evenstar now? I tend not to win contests, but it's still too much fun to pass up. Very exciting stuff!!

I have been trying to behave and NOT order another pattern. However, the carrot at the end of the stick this afternoon was just tooo much. Evenstar KAL is ordered and will order the LotR lot tomorrow. Sigh.....what an enabler (in a good way, though).

I was also trying to behave but couldn't resist this recent temptation...you are a wily one.....

Wow, what number was I? I subscribed in the middle of the night on Monday morning - yay, I'm glad I got in - but what number am I?

Very cool,
