About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

Giveaway!

I think I am going to do a giveaway.

For my followers!

Right now I have 6 followers, soooooooo, one of you will be randomly getting a care package.

Could contain some/all/more/or less than these items

-yarn
-tea
-buttons
-candy
-candles
-kitchen sink

If you would like to be entered into this giveaway, you have to become a follower of my blog AND comment on this post. If you are not interested (as I know a few of my followers do not knit or crochet) then don't comment on this and I will not include you! :)

I will randomly choose the winner 1/23/2011. So you have over a week to comment and spread the word! I promise I will not make the "care package" wimpy. Cause I hate wimpy care packages!

Good luck!

I'm a brand-spanking new follower, but I love knitting blogs, so I'll be around for a while. Also, I have a lonely empty spot on my sink-shelf where a kitchen sink should be, so I'll keep my fingers crossed! :)

(I'm also a secondary education student, except I'm going for English Lit/Language/Writing. <3

Tiffy said...

Its nice of you to open this content to new followers :) Thank you very much. I'm a novice knitter, myself, but pretty good with a hook.

Lynne said...

I've been reading and lurking for years :) Guess it's time to make my stalking/lurking official. :)

Cari said...

I have to repeat what everyone else has said, I'm new, but have been a knitter for years. I love free stuff! count me in!

x-cybergoth-x said...

I'm a new follower, been knitting since July last year, and write a fair bit about my knitting on my blog :) I love everything on your care package ideas list, though I don't need a kitchen sink, my new one is already bought and paid for and going in this May ;)

Seamyst said...

Following, and please count me in!

Mel said...

George said...

If there are two things I like, they're knitting blogs and free stuff. :)

Love to knit and love surprises!

Hi, science / maths teacher here, and knitting addict. I love the idea of care packaging a follower, but I feel terribly mercenary for following you even tho' I had planned to anyway!

Ady said...

I follow on Google Reader. :)

I love to knit and would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Redd Danger said...

There's nothing in that list I don't like.

I'm in!

melissa said...

Hello! I just began following you. I love knitting so much, I generally am knitting all the time. I'm always looking for new inspiration and new perspectives on the craft. Care packages are great too!

Geni said...

I just saw your post over on Livejournal so I thought I'd take a look at your blog, and wow! You knit, sew, and are a student, just like me! And holy moly, 4 mallet marimba playing? Awesome! I'm fairly new to knitting, as we just celebrated our one year anniversary, but we are inseparable. As much as I like care packages, I am following you more because I want to read your blog. Though... I never say no to more yarn and craft stash, either.

luganknitter said...

Holy cow! I just went from six followers to 18 in about 10 minutes! I should have just posted on Livejournal in the first place!

Thanks everyone!!!

Sherra said...

Yay! Following now, I love crafting blogs! I'd love to enter!

onesteptwo said...

Yarn and tea! Yes please!

Kristy G. said...

Fun!

cipater said...

Came here from Livejournal knitting. :) And now following!

Anita is Altering said...

I've been following you on Google Reader & I love knitting :)

Rachel said...

Followed your link from LJ over here, and Holy Hannah, you're another actual musician!! Obviously, I must follow you, even though you're a percussionist. ;)

Also, I'm in on the kitchen sink. Another would be nice, especially since mine is usually taken either by a shawl or a cat. *ahem*

Renee Anne said...

Woo-hoo.

I used to be a music education major (percussion specialty)...and then the music department dropped a bomb on me and said that they weren't going to allow it. Just because I didn't spend hours on end in the practice room and really, I wasn't that good...I could teach a frog to tap dance!

Anyway, followed over from LJ to here...

knittypanda said...

also from livejournal :)

poking around this looks like a great blog. glad to have come across it!

Janet said...

I've been searching for new blogs to follow and this one looks entertaining! Even if I don't get the care package, I still get a thrill from seeing what was sent... hope you post a pic!

citabriag said...

I followed over from LJ, and am also a long time crocheter and new-ish knitter. Although come to think of it knitting is over 5 years now. My household is very into music as well with a 2 instruments per person ratio.
Love contests and yarn. Will add you to my blog listing.

Jen said...

I am happy to add you to my reader as a new follower. My blog is about life but I am a knitter so knitting is in there too.

heathwitch said...

*wavies* I'm also here from LJ, but from what I've read of your previous blog posts I'm surprised I've not followed you sooner. Music and crafts are two favourites of mine too! :)

Looking forward to reading your writings!

Allison said...

Hi! I'm a follower on Google Reader and would love to learn how to knit. I once taught myself how to make a basic scarf, but I'd love to go beyond that. Anyway, I'd love to be entered in the contest!

Teela said...

Following you via bloglovin' I also saw this on livejournal. Mail + knitting, nothing better :)
