Congratulations! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to collect your prizes.
I'm excited to have Kate Oates from TotToppers back on the blog this week. Kate and I met on Ravelry shortly after I had begun blogging and she has fast become a knitting/Ravelry friend and one of my most favorite knit wear designers. I think she's best known for "Tot Toppers", but her When I Grow Up line of adult knits is just as fun! Check out all her patterns here!
Kate has recently partnered with Katie of Yarn Love to offer some fabulous yarn and pattern kits for some of her most popular designs. One of the lovely kits she now offers is her Dindy Beret with a full skein of Yarn Love's Anne Shirley. I had the pleasure of knitting this darling hat this past weekend in the beautiful Champagne colorway for Jasmine. Take a look...
Isn't the color just the most perfect neutral?!
Not to mention how absolutely darling the hat pattern is!
You can see all the sweet pictures of Jasmine in her new Dindy Beret on my Rav Project Page. I would highly recommend checking out this pattern - especially for the holiday gift giving time coming up! It only took me a few hours to knit up the Toddler/Child size! I will definitely be knitting another one of these cute berets, but the next one will be for ME!
Kate and Yarn Love have put together TWO fabulous yarn kits to be given away this week on YOTH! Take a look...
One grand prize winner has the opportunity to win the following kit that includes: printed Dindy Beret pattern, a skein of Anne Shirley in the colorway Sweet Tangerine (enough yarn to make even the largest slouchy size), a yummy Lime Peppermint vegan lip balm, a cute pink TotToppers project bag made by Kate herself, a choice of any available tee from Kate's Etsy shop selection, and two fun books: The Little guide to Vintage Shopping and Knitted Icons.
And, the second winner will receive the following kit which includes: printed Betsey's Braids pattern, a skein of Marianne Dashwood in the colorway Forget Me Not (which we have not had a chance to knit this pattern in, but we think will be a perfect match for a single color version of the hat), a yummy Pumpkin Cinnamon vegan lip balm, and a cute yellow tangerine colored TotToppers project bag.
Two runners up also have the chance to win a PDF copy of the Dindy Beret pattern!
Wow! What a generous giveaway this week! Thank you ladies for bringing us such wonderful treats. Come back and visit us soon!
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 11/7/10. Back in April when Kate was answering questions from followers, Marlitharn asked, "You've been challenged to a duel. Choose your weapon: DPNs or Magic Loop?" I think that's a great question for this week's giveaway. Lets us know what your preferred method of circular knitting is. What's your weapon?
BTW, Kate's reply was, "I had to answer this question because it totally cracked me up! Definitely DPNs. I have only tried Magic Loop once or twice. Also, I really enjoy the looks people give me in public when I am using DPNs. Its like I am a knitting goddess and they can't imagine how things are coming together. I would miss that too much were I to use Magic Loop."
I'll randomly pick the winners on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
