  1. I found your blog through the "nevernotknitting" podcast! I love the knit/crochet row counter! Congrats on your 1 year anniversary- many more to come!!!

  2. I found your blog after I found *you* at the Cleveland Knits West group. Since I have two of your *faboo* 100-row counters, I think I'd try one of the 99-row knit/crochet counters if I win. And I might have to just have you show me how to knit a bracelet. No shortage of beads at my house. Google/blogger is blocked at work, so I have to post with just my URL. :(

  3. I want to win this time!! Hint, Wink.

    I found your blog through YOU. And I pink, puffy heart (write Mrs. Knitting Counter on my binder at school and everything) the 100 row counter....why, because it counts 100 ROWS!!!

    I really want one of the bracelets --- the pink and green one actually.

  4. I am refraining from actually entering this time because I won the last contest! I think the Queen would throttle me if I won again :-) But I wanted to say congrats on your anniversary! And YOU ROCK! And I miss you all....

  5. These are sooo pretty! You'll have to show me how you do them sometime.

  6. I found your blog through Cleveland Knits West, also. I have actually met you once (at Java~I'm from Annie's original knit group :) I don't know how the stitch markers work, but Annie loves them, so I'd let you choose a beginner version for me.
    Congratulations on your one year anniversary!

  7. Yay Congrats on your anniversary!!!

    Let's see I found your blog through me..LOL ok through you...but wasn't I one of your pals who encouraged you to start a blog and an etsy store?

    I love all your counters...and I use my 100 row ones I guess they are my favorite...but I like the 20 row counter too...i currently can't find my 20 row counter...I"m guessing it's in a WIP somewhere....

  8. Happy anniversary (a day late, but that's the story of my life)!

    Gosh, how did I find your blog? I've been following it long enough that it's hard to remember! *LOL* I think I found it by doing a search on Etsy for row counters during the early days of my love affair with knitting socks.

    Since my favorite sock patterns have relatively small sets of row repeats, I think I like your 20-row counters best. Although I have to say that they're all lovely. :-)

  9. I found your blog from the Wiknit blog about contests. I like the knit/crochet counter that counts up to 99 rows. Happy blogiversary!

  10. I found out about your blog from Wiknit also.

    I love all of the row counters and can't decide my favorite until I win :-) How's that for confidence!

    Happy blogiversary.

  11. Congrats on your anniversary. I heard about your blog from WiKnits blog. I like the Crochet/Knit Counter the most. The pink bracelet is awesome, too.

  12. Hi Pam! Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary. I found you first because I read Dawn's blog about some stitch markers you made for her. Then I found you on Ravelry and met you one night at sit 'n knit at Caribou. I think I like either the 20 row counter or the Knit/crochet combo counter. Best of Luck! -Debbie

  13. Happy blogiversary

    We have a knitting group at work and I heard about the contest from Tom (and there will be a bunch of others following me I'm sure)

    I'm a sweater knitter and really like the 99 or 100 row counters.

  14. Tom sent me over. Thanks for a chance to win!

    I love the one with the sheep beads for counting 99 rows.

  15. Boy, these contests sure do bring the lurkers out, eh?! It's nice to see everbody coming out to send you good wishes on your blogiversary as well as your Etsy shop-aversary! Let me add mine to the list. I can't believe it's been a year already since you started your shop! I'm proud to say I knew you "when"!
    Best wishes for many happy years to come, my Friend:)
    Oh, and if perchance I were to win, I'd love a 100 row counter!

  16. I found your blog from wiknit
    I'm a knitter and I love the row counters.

  17. I found your blog through Wiknit.
    I found them because I googled knitting.
    I am a knitter and I usually have a few projects going at the same time.

  18. I'm a lurker and found out about the contest from Elaine (who found out from Tom ...). The great thing about the contests is that it DOES alert new people to a blog/shop

    I'd love one of the 100 row markers. The silverware one makes me smile although I need no reminders to eat :-)

    Happy blogiversary and thanks for a chance to win!

  19. Pam I love the fact that you do these contests.. I think I was told about you from Michelle... I do not want to be in the drawing.. but wanted to wish you Happy Blogiversary! May you have many more years...


  20. happy blogiversary and congrats on a year on etsy!!

    I found you through Wiknit's blog. Your goodies are lovely! I am a knitter and have never tried a row counter, i am interested but would have to be told how to use one (sounds much handier than the traditional counters!) Think i like the first one best.

  21. Happy Blogiversary!!

    I found you through Wiknit. I love your work, and the knitting row counters are great! I really need a good one, too. Can't decide between the 100-row or the 20-row.

    Thanks for having the contest to celebrate!

  22. Happy Blogiversary.

    I found out about the contest from Elaine.

    I have never used a row counter but would love to try one. I'd be most interested in a 100 row one (or maybe the 99 type)

  23. I found out about your blog and the contest from the folks in my work knitting group.

    I think I like the 100 row design best, especially the one with the sweater and maybe the silverware. Cute!

    Congrats on your blogiversary.

  24. I found you through WiKnit. I love your work - very pretty! Love the pink bracelet!

  25. Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary!!

    I love both my current row counters. I found your blog, after finding you, at CKW. What a great find that was!

    I'd actually love to try one of the "other" 100 row counters if I win.

  26. First - happy blogiversary! And many more.

    I found out about your blog from Elaine.

    I would love to win a 100 row counter for doing sweaters. My favorite amongst those is probably the one with the sweater.

  27. I heard about the blog and giveaway from Tom and Elaine at work. Thanks - I love the way they all look.

    My favorite is the 100 row style

  28. I'm the last of the work knitting group I think to come over and check out your shop. Congrats. I found out about the contest from all of them.

    I think my first choice would be a 100 row counter. I've never tried any style - I use a supremely inconvenient method of making strokes.

  29. I found you through WiKnit. Congrats on 1 year! I like the 100 row counter. :)

  30. Wow...they are all lovely. Congrats on one year! I like the 100 row counter too of course.

  31. Happy anniversary! I found the blog around the time you handed me a super cute business card.

    It is very hard to decide what I'd like best. I think the 100 row counter, although I'm charmed by the pink bracelet...

  32. Hello, and congratulations on the 1 year anniversary of your blog and Etsy shop.

    I found your blog while I was Googling "knitting contests." I just entered one at a local craft store, and wanted to see if there was another contest out there in the blogosphere. I stopped to check out your Etsy shop after I noticed the gorgeous row counters on your blog. How incredibly clever! They almost look too pretty to use. However, if I were to win one, I would love the one that counts up to 100 rows...and I would definitely use it daily as I am an avid knitter and crocheter.

  33. Sigh! A day late (and a dollar short) yet again.
    Came from where I found your blog name. As a knitter, I am always on the lookout for new ideas and patterns.
    But what I actually fell in love with was the All Pink Bracelet. Just the thing for my sister's birthday.
