Karen, Kim, and Kris are three sisters who knit and have a wonderful blog (that you should visit!) called "Unknitted". This month they celebrated their 3 month blogiversary with a contest. To enter the contest all you had to do was comment on their blog. For every comment you made, your name would go into the drawing for an autographed copy of The Yarn Harlots new book

AND GUESS WHO WON!!!! I'm so excited I'm going to have my own contest!
If you read my blog, you know that I am an avid Red Sox fan. Today they play their ultimate rival, the NY Yankees. My sister and her husband (Yankee fans) are visiting from NJ, so we are having a Red Sox/Yankee party this afternoon complete with ballpark food - hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos, etc. It is such a beautiful day I wish we could take the t.v. outside! I also have a little contest going on during the game -guess the final score - 25 cents a guess, closest wins the money. So, I thought I'd let you all in on it. You don't even have to pay the 25 cents. Just guess the final score of Sunday night's Red Sox/Yankee game and you will win - what else - but some 'sox' yarn. One skein of Magic Stripes sock yarn - enough to make a pair of socks - not red socks - but socks nonetheless. To enter - post your guess for the final score and winner of tomorow night's Red Sox/Yankee game as a comment to this post before the start of the game at 8 p.m.(Eastern time). Good Luck!

Thank you so much for the nice mention you made of our blog. We so appreciate it. We absolutely love your blog too and have been admiring your work for some time. Well, I don't know much about baseball but I can make a guess .......Red Sox 7...Yankees 4. I will let the sisters know about the contest. Well, maybe not Kim since she has been really lucky lately.....just kidding!

Congrats on the book! I got it for myself and am about to begin devouring in a nice bubble bath. And, as a fellow Sox fan.. I will say..

Sox 8, NY 5

Perhaps a tad hopeful, but ya never know! :D

I'll be the first to guess a Yankees win - my guess (completely a wild guess, as the only team I halfway follow is the Jays) is NY 6, Sox 4.

I think you should use an extension cord for the TV.

Two Votes:

Hubby says: B8 - Y6
I say: B5 - Y4

I'll have to watch it for a few minutes tonight. Seems whenever I click on a Yankee game they lose. Never fails. Spooky.
