The winner of The Unique Sheep Gradiance skein(s) is:

Sara

Congratulations! Please contact me at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com to collect your prize.


We have a very talented and fun knit hat designer as our guest this week. It's one of my favorite designers: Woolly Wormhead.




Woolly was nice enough to meet up on Skype and do an interview for us; unfortunately, our connection was not quite good enough for a video, but I did get a voice recording. Hope you enjoy the interview!









If you cannot see the player click here.

Thank you so much for visiting us, Woolly! Come back and visit anytime! Woolly has been nice enough to offer the chance for TWO followers to win a PDF copy of her latest e-book, Twisted Woolly Toppers


I just love the hat on the cover of this e-book!



This book includes 10 hat designs that feature unique techniques and offer lots of unisex patterns, which I appreciate. I'm always searching for good looking "manly" hats. I bet hubby would love a Chevron beanie.

Also, TWO followers have the chance to win a PDF copy of one of the following lovely new Woolly patterns:

Castiel





...or, Limpetiole





...or, Anca's Beret






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, 1/2/11. We're switching things up a bit and there's a quiz question this week: Woolly Wormhead only models one of her patterns - which one is it? Don't worry if you don't know the answer! Just leave a comment saying "Hi" to Woolly instead. Have fun!


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.

Sincerely,

Ve

Just e-mailed you...

Keya said...

Of course, owning the entire book would be even better!

Stephanie said...

She models Igloo! Love her patterns!

Kim said...

I bet it's Igloo... the hair is kind of a give away. :D I am amazed that anybody could make, much less design, that many hats!

Kathy said...

Is it Igloo? I have to admit, it was fun to look at all of her patterns to try to figure it out. Plus, I added a few more to my queue!

Sole said...

Love Woolly's patterns!!

adodds said...

Is she the cover model of the pattern book? Love her designs. What talent!!!

Paula said...

I've been searching to try to figure out which design Woolly models. I can't quite tell from the one or two pictures of her in a hat that I've found. I'm guessing Tea Cosy, but really don't know. I am amazed by her productivity and creativity.

Rae Lynne said...

Fantastic patterns! :) And what a great giveaway! :)

Definately the Igloo, can't miss those dreads. I will be making the Meret soon. I love her hats-they are very origianl.

Debbie said...

I think it's Igloo. Thanks for turning me on to Woolly - I subscribed to her newsletter and blog. I would love to win! Debbie in Alaska

knitandcurl said...

Looks like a great book. I cheated and looked at other answers for which one Wooly Wormhead wears!

DonnaC said...

I love Limpetiole!

Michelle said...

I love Woolly's designs, and am a follower of her blog. Her blog (especially the bits about her new home and the kitties she helps), her knitting, her designs (and the inspiration for her designs) and her photography are always a source of inspiration to me. However I'm unsure as to which designs she herself models.

Anyway, happy new year woolly and Veronika!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Pavlina said...

Hello Wooly, I don't know your work yet, but may be my luck is coming my way and i'll win one of your e-books :) Thank you for the opportunity and a Happy New Year to you!

Suzanne said...

I can't believe she learned to knit at 3. I liked meeting Woolly through your interview.

Elly said...

IGLOO!!! Hi Woolly! Love ALL your patterns! You're a true artistic designer!! Keep up the amazing work!

Debbie said...

Hi Woolly! I looked through a few of the patterns and could not find the one you (she) models, but I have been an admirer of your(her) patterns for quite a while! In fact I am about to cast on for a rollin' beret! Have been jonesing for a beret for a couple of years and now seems like a good time! But maybe I should hold off in case I win one of the patterns!

Heather said...

Wonderful hats. Hi to you and Woolley. Per one of your tweets about the wrap. Rather than break up a friendship, I'm sure someone would love to take that beautiful piece off your hands. Just sayin'. :)

Katrina said...

Well, I searched all over Ravelry, and while it doesn't show her face, I think Igloo has her hair!
I didn't realize how many hat designs she has and how many of them are ones in my favorite's list.
