Free stuff!

Don't you love free stuff? I certainly do! There is a fantabulous carnival going on right now at Bloggy Giveaways where you can win free stuff. I'm in like... "A dirty shirt!" "A rat on a cheeto" "Someone who desperately wants to win something as well!" Since I am a blogger who loves my slow cooker (I know it doesn't sound glamorous but it is not much more work than a Wendy's drive through) and knitting (it truly makes you cool!) I thought that I'd have two books about my two loves. The Knitting book is not a pattern book but rather a great story of Crazy Aunt Purl who started knitting as a way of recuperating from a heartbreak. You'll love her perspective-laughing and maybe being even tempted to cry. I love anyone who can laugh at themselves.

I'll ship anywhere in Canada and all you have to do is leave your blog address or email address if you are not a blogger in the comments section. The contest closes at 7:00 on Friday night (MT) and I'll be randomly drawing a name for the winner. This contest is now closed and the winner has been notified by email. Unfortunately, my first winner was in the States and to ship books to the States is akin to taking out a second mortgage. Now my second winner is a Canadian and hopefully I hear from her before Sunday night. If not, you might have a chance:-)

Good luck!
