Last giveaway's winner is: Anne (aanderson), who posted on the 15th saying that she has never seen Madelinetosh yarn before. I'm glad that I can introduce you then! Please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your info to claim your prize.
This week the post is going to be sweet and short. This is the 3rd Madelinetosh giveaway in the 4 part series that I am hosting and this week's yarn is soooooooooo very pretty and I got a good looking model for you again! Meet Jared and your Madelinetosh Tosh Lace in the color Cedar.
This yarn is so squishy and soft! It is made of superwash merino wool and the skein boasts 950 yds!! The colorway is amazing in person. I'm not sure my pictures do this yarn justice. During the first MadTosh giveaway, Robin commented that Cedar is her favorite color. She said, "It nearly glows." And, I think she's right! Here's another picture for you to enjoy.
And, here's another picture of Jared with the yarn:
Thank you, Jared for modeling the yarn for us this week! Jared is Alison's husband (Alison is my cute pregnant friend that modeled the red MadTosh a couple weeks ago). Jared is also my husband's best friend from childhood. They attended church camp together as kids and got into trouble together when they were teenagers! Pretty much Jared and Alison are more like family to us than just our friends. So, thank you Jared and Ali for being my models, and I'm sure everyone here will want to see pictures of your little boy once he arrives in April (or May).
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. If you have a friend or relative that has a US mailing address who is willing to be your shipping sponsor, that will work as well. I will send it to them and they can then forward it on to you.
2) Post a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 3/28/2010, telling us your favorite place to knit. Anne (the winner of last week's giveaway) suggested this question and I thought it was a really good one. My favorite place to knit is at home in bed with channel 934 on (which is a music channel called Soundscapes and plays very soothing music that most of the time has no vocals), and a few candles lit to set the mood. In all honesty though, this favorite knitting place is usually occupied by my little girl, my little dogs, and my husband, so the channel is not set to 934 and the candles are a hazard!
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.
