meet Daniel and your Cascade Eco Alpaca
First things first, congratulations to StaceyKnitsIt!! You are the winner of last week's giveaway! There are two wonderful skeins of Malabrigo Worsted sitting happily at my house waiting to be sent your way. And, now that the bar has been set by our first winner, we would all like to see a picture of the yarn in your possession once it arrives.
This week's giveaway is two skeins of beautiful Cascade Eco Alpaca in a really nice, classic medium gray color (#1517). I know that I just finished last week's giveaway and that was gray tones, but I just couldn't resist getting this yarn. The yarn is amazingly, unbelievably soft! And, the gray is a perfect shade of gray. The yarn is a 100% undyed baby alpaca! The comments on Ravelry say that this yarn's like buttuh, and I would have to agree!
Also, this week modeling the yarn for you is my handsome younger brother. Didn't he do an excellent job? What a good sport! I don't think he was all that excited about the modeling process (kept telling me that he was uncomfortable), but the pics turned out great. So, I'm glad he suffered through it for me.
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1) Have an address in the US to ship the yarn to. See house rules for further details.
2) Post a comment on this blog post by the end of Saturday, 2/20/10, telling us what your favorite flattering garment pattern is. Is there a sweater pattern that you have knit that takes 10 lbs off when you wear it? If so, we want to know about it!! A couple of followers suggested I ask this question and I think that it is a brilliant question to ask. Have fun!
3) Please post only one comment to give everyone a fair chance.
Again, I'll randomly pick the winner on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
My husband and I spent this past holiday weekend up in Victoria, BC with some of our friends. I apologize for not be able to post the new giveaway sooner. We had a wonderful time though, and I got to visit a yarn and button store while I was there. It was an adorable shop and I got to meet the owner and take some pictures of the place. I'll be posting those up later on this week sometime - that way you can see what I have been up to. Happy belated Valentine's Day to everyone and I'm off to bed to recuperate from my trip. It's nice to be home.
