Today the pattern for my Buy My 'Papes, Sir - Newsboy Hat was favourited on Ravelry by the 1000th person. That's like having 1000 likes on Facebook, or 1000 followers on Twitter - except for I'm not sure about Twitter at all, because I have enough of a social media problem already...
Anyway, it's pretty exciting to me. I've loved watching as the little heart beside my design climbed higher and higher in numbers. Even more than that, I love. love. love. checking out the projects that people have made with my pattern. How fun to see what people come up with!
So, to celebrate such a momentous occasion - or maybe it's just a good excuse for a giveaway - I am offering up one of my newsboy hats, in the infant size, to one of you wonderful readers! Anyone can win, as long as you don't live on the moon!
I suck with suspense, so I'm going to make this giveaway short and sweet. You have until the end of the weekend (Sunday night) to comment on this post to get a chance to win. I'll give you a second chance if you are a follower of my blog, just leave another comment to tell me that you are. And, because I'm nice like that, if you are one of the thousand (or become 1006, or any other number) people who have favourited my pattern on Ravelry, leave yet another comment, and I'll give you another chance to win. Oh, and what the heck, let's add one more: if you Pin the pattern on Pinterest, I'll give you one more chance. Nothing wrong with a little shameless self-promotion, right? Let's see, how many chances might that give you? Four. Four chances. (In my head I sounded like The Count off Sesame Street right there. Just saying.) That's not bad.
Oh, and just to be sweet, I'll also include a digital copy of my Edith sweater pattern, which you can purchase HERE, delivered straight to your inbox. (You could go 'favourite' and Pin it as well, but I'm not giving away any more chances to win, no I'm not!)
So, comment, follow, favourite and pin away!!!
