My contest is officially closed! However, I am completely and totall overwhelmed by the number of entries. There were a total of 112 entries - 80 via direct comment and 32 via links and referrals. I'm impressed with you people! It was loads of fun reading the comments and finding out why other people blog. I haven't created a database or done a statistical analysis of the comments, but many of us blog for similar reasons - to have a creative outlet, to keep in touch with friends and family that are far away, to belong to the larger knitting community that is out there, but so often not physically present in our lives.
I did try to respond to everyone's comments, but I will admit that with all of the comments, it kind of got ahead of me and it didn't completely happen. So I'd like to take this opportunity to publically thank each and every one of you for sharing with me.
Given the number of entries, it's going to take me a bit to announce the winner, but since it is Friday (yippee!!!), I promise to have the winner announced by Sunday evening... Or maybe it will be winners - you just never know!
