I'm on the east coast and will admit that I'm routing for the Hawks too.

Goldenleo said...

I would love the sock yarn...and yes, I'm a lurker.

I'm embarrassed to say I know but it is indeed Tim McGraw. I must know because he looks so much like me shirtless. NOT!!!

The Fireman!

You don't see a half nekked guy on knitting blogs very often these days-especially ones with a little chests hair. Thanks for sharing!

Sue said...

Can Bruin fans join in?

Well, you got my attention, too, Kathy :-) I want to knit many more socks in my lifetime, and you encourage me in that desire. Thanks!

Ha,ha, you did make me look twice, even though, I'm pretty sure I'm old enough to be his mother,

We are cheering for the Blackhawks too - we recently moved to MA and are actually Rangers fans. So when I asked my son who he was cheering for he replied "The Blackhawks". I then queried "do your friends (rabid Bruins fans) know" - silence. Cracked me up.

Bridget said...

I love giveaways, even if I don't win (but of course I do like to win ...)

Have a lovely weekend!

Karen said...

Most of the time I lurk, but in a nice way:)
I'm another Bruins fan...

Grace said...

60%lurker 40% commenter

ANd I had an awful crush on Tug McGraw, Tim's dad when he played for the NY Mets many many like almost 50 years ago

Nancy said...

I'll pass on throwing my hat in the ring, but thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

SapphireBlue said...

I don't get the guy?? He would look good painting my house.

Rose said...

Lurker! You are on my blog roll :)

Patt said...

I lurk, but I also comment. I am originally from Chicago, Skokie, really. And I loved Keith Magnuson #3 Chicago Black Hawks, years ago! Love when you mention places I know!

fancystitching said...

What a way to start my morning! Eye candy, indeed. And I LOVE Fireman's comment.

Thanks for the give-away. That would just add ANOTHER REASON to keep reading your blog, along with the thought that maybe we are sisters separated at birth, as shown through our choices of yarn and knitting patterns? Have a wonderful weekend in Chicagoland!

Nancy Kay said...

Well, you got my attention! LOL! And it appears it popped eyes across the country! Thanks for the fun.

Sarah said...

I think I drooled a little on my computer keyboard.

Count me in for any of your prizes!

Thank you!

Anni said...

What a sweet giveaway.

Maureen said...

Great giveaway thank you!!

Lynn said...

Oh you HAD my attention for sure!!! Him and sock yarn could get me thru this summer heat!!! Actually he'll probably add to it, but I'll cope!

KSD said...

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill live not too far from my parents' place, but I never saw him like this. ;)

Good warm-up for Knitters' Hunk, though.

Anonymous said...

We don't win him?!! There's always a catch. Sigh.

Dee said...

You have my attention --- you mentioned sock yarn.

I agree with Meredith --- it KIND OF looks like Tim McGraw. But, not exactly.

Debbi said...

Hi,
Boston fan here. Hoping you will be up later than 9:30 tonight, but not too much later. We would like to beat you in regular play not overtime. HEHEHE. I have been a lurker for about 3 years since I won a contest from you long time ago. Thanks for running the contest.

RedClayLady said...

You CAN'T go to bed at 9:30 tonight--stay up to cheer on the Blackhawks!

RedClayLady said...

You can't go to bed at 9:30 tonight; you have to cheer the Blackhawks! Knitting, 'Hawks, and a half-naked Tim McGraw--I love this blog!

RedClayLady said...

Knitting, Blackhawks, and a half-naked Tim McGraw--I love this blog! You have to stay up past 9:30; you don't want to miss the 'Hawks winning the Stanley Cup!

AthertonCA said...

Thank you for the generous giveaway. I read your blog on my iPad using the Feeddler app. Nice yarn trumps shirtless man any day.

no spring chicken said...

Thanks so much for not just disqualifying this silly woman! I've never been very good at following directions. :)

Now will you enter me? Please?
