This past weekend I got to meet the lovely indie designer and knitting artist, Theresa of Little Turtle Knits. Theresa designs lots of fun and functional knitwear. I think she's best known for her childrens' designs (i.e. Picky Pants, Swing Thing, and many others). She's also recently released some great hat patterns. I really love her Bricked hat! I would totally rock that myself. Watch the interview to learn more about Theresa and her designing...

Thanks, Theresa for being our sponsor! There FOUR prizes this time! The first winner to contact me (in two weeks when winners' names are announced) will receive 2 skeins of their choice and the corresponding pattern/pattern choice from the options below, and the following winners will each receive their choice of yarn + pattern as they roll in. That means that the quicker you are to announce yourself if you win, the better chance you'll have at getting your top choice of goodies. Here are the prizes:





Three Irish Girls Westmarch skein of sport weight yarn in the Kelly colorway, and a choice of one of Theresa's sock patterns.

Punta Yarns Merisoft Hand Painted skein of aran weight yarn in a deep olive and black slightly variegated color, and a choice of Bricked or Honey Do Hat. (I actually used this yarn in a different colorway to knit up my Dindy Beret. Great stuff!!)

Cestari 100% Wool 2 Ply Worsted Weight skein in the Oatmeal colorway, and a choice of Bricked or Honey Do Hat.

Malabrigo Worsted skein in the Simply Taupe colorway, and a choice of Bricked or Honey Do Hat.

Little Turtle Knits Superwash Merino Wool skein in a beautiful coral, pink, purple, and blue mix, and a choice of one of Theresa's sock patterns. (This is yarn from when Theresa was dyeing up lovely colors herself.)

And, everyone will receive an adorable notepad that was handmade by Theresa herself. They are so cute!


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, 3/27/11. Theresa would like to know, "If you could design a (knit, crochet, or bi-craftual) outfit for any literary character, what what would it be and who would it be for?" Don't worry if you can't think of anything, you're welcome to just leave Theresa a nice comment instead. :)


I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

The yarn is so gorgeous! I can't crochet, so I would not even attempt to write a crochet pattern :P

My three year old keeps me quite busy, especially reading books. I think I would have to knit a hat, scarf, and mittens for Little Bear, my favorite book character when I was a little girl. I always marveled at how his mother could make all those clothes up for him so quickly - never mind that he only needed his own fur coat!
