Pink is my favorite color: A CONTEST!!!!!

I know, I know; you thought I was just pulling your leg when I said I was going to have another contest, didn't you? But just look at all the goodies I am going to give away: Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought it would be the perfect time to give away a copy of "Think Pink: Crochet for the Cure" published by DRG Publishing (Annie's Attic). This book is very special to me. It was one of the last books I worked on before I left DRG.
My "Lacy Reader's Wrap" is on page 46. I am giving away 4 skeins of Caron's Simply Soft yarn in Soft Pink; more than enough for you to make this lovely wrap. Well, I guess you can use the yarn to make something else if you really want to, there are lots of other cool projects in the book.

I am also giving away some tapestry needles and a set of pink hooks (well, they are kind of "pinkish"). And do not fear, my beloved threadies, I am also giving away a size 7 steel hook. Because you can never have too many hooks. And 4 balls of America's Best size 10 crochet thread in Baby Pink.

So to enter, here is what you do:
Leave me a comment telling me what YOUR favorite color is. And please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win; an email address or your Blogger, Etsy or Ravelry ID will be fine.
Want a second entry? Follow my blog and leave me a SECOND comment saying "I follow your blog." If you already do follow my blog, that counts, too.
For a third entry, go to my Etsy shop at bellacrochet.etsy.com and add me to your favorite shops. If you have already done this, that counts too. Leave me a THIRD comment saying "I heart your Etsy shop."
The contest will run for a week, and end at midnight on October 14, 2009. I will draw a winner from all the entries and notify the winner on Oct. 15th. I will ship out the package no later than the 16th.
Due to the high cost of postage, this contest is open only to residents of the U.S.
Thanks everyone, and good luck!

(no worries if entries from far away are not really up for entering the contest, but I did want to tell you...)

my very favorite color is peacock blue!!! the very special kind of blue with a hint of green in it, the very deep blue that has no name or even real copy in anything but nature of the peacock...
I am a fan of peacocks because the feathers are so full of magic...

pink is a color that came to me with the birth of my daughter Sarah - before then I thought I hated it, now I love it

and breastcancer awareness is so very important, I really value your contest to help this cause...
like all, I know young moms who have to deal with this monster, and I hope every bit helps someone!

your pink package is so lovely that I couldn't resist responding

thanks for sharing this beautiful blog, I look up to your crochet talent!
