It’s October ~ Let’s Give Something Away!

Hey all!  It’s October – One of my favorite months of the year! It starts cooling down and feeling more like Fall, Halloween is near – as is my birthday and my youngest daughter’s birthday. It’s the start of the giving season – feeling thankful for what we have and sharing in giving to others.

This October, I’d like to give a copy of Vampire Knits away!  I’ll draw a name from those who comment on this blog entry.  I’ll draw names next Friday, and if it’s an overwhelming response, I might give away two!

Just for fun, leave your name and the name of your favorite bloodsucker!

  1. This is a cool idea. 🙂 My favorite bloodsucker is Lestat. I’m an Anne Rice fan. 🙂

  2. hehe i love Oct!! halloween is sooo much fun, i cant wait to dress up this year!!:) and happy bday to you both… and thanks for put one of the books up for giveaway!!:D now back to sexy, yummy damon….;)

  3. I love WordPress, Anne Rice AND Vampire Knits!

  4. I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

    My favorite vampire has got to be Lestat as well… though not necessarily from Anne Rice’s book, but the movie adaptation of “Interview With A Vampire”. It’s the ONLY movie that I absolutely love Tom Cruise in.

  5. Awesome idea! My favorite bloodsucker? Possibly the leeches in the Little House Book that prompts Laura and/or Mary to scream “SHE’S GOT BLOODSUCKERS ON HER LEGS, PA!” (although I might not be remembering that correctly.) Other than that, I am fond of Angel from Buffy, Crispin Glover’s dad in “Die Hard Dracula”…I feel like I’m missing someone. HMM! Oh yeah, this is Mary Jessica.

  6. Eric is my favorite

  7. I love October too! Looking forward to the explosion of color in the trees.

    My favorite vamp is Edward Cullen. (I can’t help it! He was written to be almost everything a girl would want in a guy!) 😀

  8. Awesome!!! I have heard some great things about this book & can’t wait to read it. Fav blood sucker – Eric from True Blood. So super hot 🙂

  9. I love keeping up with your book! Favorite vampire… Bunnicula? hmmm. maybe Spike from Buffy.

    Can’t wait to read your book and my favorite bloodsucker is Louis from the Vampire Chronicles.

  11. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this book!! What a fun idea!! I would have to say that my favorite vampires are Angel and Spike. Lately though, I can’t get enough of Eric from Trueblood!

  12. Looks like a fantastic book! My favorite vampire? That’s hard to say, but I’ll go with Edward Cullen.

  13. October is my favourite month too. Love what I’ve seen of this book so far! Fav vampire is a toss up between Alice and Eric.

  14. I saw this book at a nice Halloween display at Borders last night and LOVED the designs in there. I’d love to win a copy!

  19. Oooh baby. Love this. Think I’m going with Alice.

  20. I just keep hearing great things about this book everywhere! I have to admit I’m partial to Spike (from Buffy/Angel)–he always had the best lines.

  24. Tammy Castleberry

    My favourite vamp has to be William the Bloody. Yep, I have a crush on Spike from BtVS. Those cheekbones, that voice…*shiver* I do love me some Spike. Angelus runs a close second due to his wicked sense of humour. Hmmm, now there’s a thought. I wonder how it would be being the filling in a Spike/Angelus sandwich….

  25. While it would be easy to say I’m Team Edward, my favorite movie vampire is actually Gerard Butler’s Dracula from Dracula 2000

  26. Thanks for the kewl giveaway! I’m a Frank Langella or Gary Oldman original Count Dracula fan, myself!

  42. My favorites are Lestat (book version, not Tom Cruise movie version) and the original Count Dracula from “Dracula, The Undead” by Dakre Stoker, the great grand-nephew of Bram Stoker!

  43. Bela Lugosi! I’m not immune to Edward’s charms, but I’m a purist!

  44. Not exactly blood “suckers” but definitely blood drinkers:
    The Masai of Africa

  45. OOH… I love the book but can’t afford to buy any knitting things until I find a job (unemployment both sucks and is wonderful- lots of knitting time, but no $$ for yarn or patterns

    another Bela Lugosi fan here, though Edward is nice too…

  46. Hmmm, fave bloodsucker – that’s hard.
    I love the ones from Christine Feehan’s carpathian novels 🙂

  47. Totally a toss-up between Eric and Edward…maybe I just like vampire’s whose name starts with “E”…lol

  48. Deb (ALoopyString)

    Hi, this is Deb and I’m recalling the vampire that (if I’m recalling correctly) started the whole “vampire trying to redeem himself tortured soul soul-less” TV show genre – Nick Knight from Forever Knight. It was one of my favorite shows!

    I do also love Angel. And Spike.

    Your book is beautiful! I would LOVE to have it for my library, and I know my DD (with whom I live) would be wanting me to make several of the items in it for her as she is deeply into all things Goth. Thank you for this giveaway, and I hope your book is wildly successful!

  49. Looks like a cool book. I like Alice, and Emmett.

  50. Ahh, I love the concept of a vampire-inspired knitting book~ Almost too good to be true, except it is!

    Got to say, my favorite vamp has to be Eric Northman. Love him in the books, and Alex Skarsgard is possibly the sexiest man ever. 😀

  51. my favorite vampire is spike.

  52. Hi from France! I love the idea of the book! My favorite bloodsucker is Lestat, so gorgeous 😉

  53. Thank goodness for the change in weather, its been too hot here in Georgia. I’d have to say my favorite bloodsuckers are Eric Northman and Gary Oldman from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

  54. Love, love, love the Lore Hoodie. The open worked lace stitches give it a romantic feel, and the toggles an edge that both compliment the length and hoodie giving it that mysterious aura. All the better to wear while dreaming about my favorite vampire, Carlisle!

  55. Charlotte Looram

    What a great idea! My favorite vampires are Count von Count from Sesame Street and Myrnin from The Morganville Vampires! I think they’re hilarious!

  56. Hi I’m Domynique. My favorite vamp is definatley Edward Cullen at the moment. Who can blame me!?!

  57. My favorite bloodsucker is the first vampire, Count Dracula.

  58. If I were to have a romance with any vampire, he would be Angel, from “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”. He’s vulnerable and yet stands on his own. He’s tender-hearted yet tough. Oh, and he’s really hot.

  59. Please put my name in the competition – I wouold love to have a copy of your book. as to my fave bloodsucker – I grew up with vampires in the 1970s when my parents took me to see all the movies; now with the vampire rebirth I LOVE THEM ALL.

  60. Is it even possible to choose?!? The longer I think about it, the harder it is to pick a favorite bloodsucker! 🙂

  61. I must say, I’m intrigued by this book…

    At the moment my favourite vampire is Thomas Raith from ‘The Dresden files” by Jim Butcher. Its a different take on vampires and that is why I am fascinated by it.

  62. I think I would have to vote for Spike from Buffy.. I could look at that all day 🙂

  63. Hello! What a fun idea for a giveaway! It’s HARD to say who my fave vamp of all time is, there’s so many greats ones! Dracula? Lestat? Nosferatu? … I suppose if you’re going to MAKE me choose (you meanie, you!) I’ll choose Vampire Hunter D, from the manga and animated movies. =) He’s just… dreamy……..

  64. Hey! Another October baby here! So, of course, my favorite month too.
    I love the projects you got for this book. It is a brilliant idea! My favorite vamp would have to be Jasper. He can give everyone the warm and fuzzies, as well as keep the love flowin’. 🙂

  65. I have to vote for Count von Count from Sesame Street.

  66. Ooohh – I’d love to win a copy of this book! My favorite vamp has to be Mitchel from Being Human.

  67. I’ve been looking forward to this book since I first heard about it. Choosing a favorite vamp is hard but right now I’m partial to True Blood’s Eric.

  68. This book sounds great. Are you planning on making a book about vampire sewing projects too? If so, put me down for one of those too.

    Eric from True Blood is my fave vamp ;o)

  69. My current favorite is Jean Claude . . .

  70. Wow, that piece on the cover is amazing!

    It’s hard to pick a favorite vampire because I’m a vampire lover. However, if I had to choose I’d go with a classic- Nosferatu. Both terrifying and misunderstood.

  71. My name is Libby and my favorite vampire is the Count from sesame street 🙂

  72. Hmm… I can only pick one?! Oh man, that’s tough. lol. Um, I’m going to go with John Matthew (Black Dagger Brotherhood).

  73. Sadly, I don’t sew. It’s on my list of things to learn! 🙂

  74. Catherine McDonald

    One of my fvorite happy days. I’ll miss my neice this year as she’s my partner in crime. She just loves Halloween. They don’t celebrate it in PRico. I’ve told her about your web and she’s so excited. Have a happy birthday and fun Halloween.

  75. I’d love to win!

    Also, just wanted to let you know I went to buy a copy at my local Borders and all of them were boound out of order and missing a chapter , and had an extra copy of one section bound into instead. I was so bummed, hopefully they’ll get replacements!!

  76. hmmm, I’ll go old school. My fave is Dracula.

  77. I forgot to mention that my favorite vampire is either Asher (from LKH’s Anita Blake series) or Eric Northman.

  78. Can’t wait to check out your book! And my favorite vampire has to be Eric from True Blood.

  79. Probably Drusilla from Buffy. Can’t really say why.

  80. I love October, too! I’m enjoying all the Halloween decorations going up all over my neighborhood.

    Hmmm…it’s kind of hard to pick my favorite bloodsucker! I think I’ll have to go with Angel, although Edward Cullen is a close second. And then there’s Spike, and Eric, and Mick St. John from Moonlight 🙂

  81. What a wonderful looking book. I will have to get a copy pronto.

    Favorite vampire? Dimitri from the Vampire Academy books.

    Followed closely by Eric Northman.

  82. I just saw your book on Amazon. Thought I would look you up and see if I could see some of your designs. I would love to win a book……….I am a 70 year old grandmother and knit for my granddaughters

  83. It’s hard to narrow it down, normally I’d have to say Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but more recently my favorite vampire is Eric Northman from the Southern Vampire Book Series by Charlaine Harris.

  84. Harmony from BTVS, she is the most hilarious, whiny vamp ever and come on…unicorn fetish FTW!

  85. i love fall and I´d love to win one of your books. My favorite bloodsucker is also Gary Oldman´s Dracula, followed closely by Count von Count from Sesame Street….

  86. Hi – found you on Rav in the Criminal Minds group. Your book looks fabulous! I watched Dark Shadows with my mom growing up, but now am a big Anne Rice fan, so I’ll have to name Lestat as my favorite vampire.

  87. Oh let’s see who’s my favorite bloodsucker? I’m going with Damon Salvatore… but then there’s always Emmett Cullen. Shoot I don’t think I could pick just one 🙂
