The Runner Up winner is:
Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.com to collect your prizes.
I bring you all sorts of beautiful yarn and patterns during my giveaways; however, every now and again I showcase something that relates to knitting in some way, but isn't necessarily something that you can actually use to knit with. That's what I have to share with you this time... a beautiful work of art that you can wear with your knitting! Meet Inna the owner of Ingo Jewelry. Inna is a very talented jewelry artist that designs and creates gorgeous pieces of wearable art. I'm sure I'm not the only one that loves jewelry, but Inna specializes a part of her jewelry line in shawl and scarf pins that I am just enamored with. I told you it was all going to come back to knitting!
You know I'm a fan of knitting shawls - it's my fav! However, I have shawls in my wardrobe that like to slide off my neck when I wear them (again, not the only one I'm sure). These divine pins that Inna creates are just the answer for my problem. Not to mention, an elegant addition to complete the look when wearing one. Inna's pins are not only stunning, but lightweight and perfect to pin on a lace shawl. I'll stop blabbing on about how much I love these things and let you listen to an interview I did with Inna this morning instead...

Ingo Jewelry has put together a simply beautiful giveaway for you this time. Two followers have the chance to win a handmade shawl pin. I decided the best way to show off the two gorgeous pieces was by showcasing them on a couple of my shawls of course!

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, 5/6/12. I'm not going to make you choose a favorite. That would just be cruel! But, I would like to know if you own and use shawl pins? If not, why?
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.
