"Blues and charcoal are my favorite color combos so Kit #4. Such a lovely pattern and beautiful yarn."
Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.com to collect your prizes.
I'm so excited to bring you this next giveaway! Not only is it #100!! But, I've collaborated this time with a designer that I've admired and followed for years now to bring you a fun 12 Days of Knitting giveaway. There's more prizes, more winners, and a dozen fiber and knitting filled blog posts to come!
Isn't she so cute as a knitting needle?!
Grace is a super talented knitwear designer! She has a whopping 110 designs published of which some are crochet patterns as well. I really love Grace's charming style! She's best known for her beautiful Robin Hood and Peace Street Hat. I love both of these patterns, and I actually originally purchased the IK's Holiday Gifts 2011, for the Peace Street Hat pattern alone! Here are some of my other favorites: Crashing Waves (I'm sure I have a skein or hundred of lace weight sitting around for this one), Janna's Tunic (so very chic), Slouchy Teanie (I actually think my hubby would like this one), Beekeeper's Cowl (not only a freebie, but wouldn't this be a perfect last minute knit for the holidays?), Buttoned Lace Cowl (this is the original pattern that had me following Grace), and Bougainvillea Lace Shrug (I HAVE to knit this!). I could keep going, but you get the idea... I pretty much like everything she releases.
Us ladies, have put together a really fun holiday themed giveaway for you this time around. Over the next 12 days, I will do a blog post everyday featuring a Grace Akhrem pattern followed the next day by a matching yarn prize for the previous day's pattern selection. At the end of the 12 days, I will randomly choose 7 winners who will each receive a PDF pattern copy from one of the shared patterns and the yarn prize that matches! How fun is that?! The rules stay the same and all you have to do to be entered to win, is leave a comment on THIS blog post following the instructions at the bottom. Here's a little sampling of the pattern yumminess!
Can you feel all the holiday love we are sending your way?! Grace has also been kind enough to put together a coupon code for all the followers. The discount is 20% off the 6 patterns we are featuring over the next 12 days: Olana Shawl, Walt's Tangled Cables, Bumble Stripes, Seaweed Scarf, Random Stripes, & Rippling Lace. Use the following coupon code during checkout on Ravelry: YOTHSALE!, it is good through the end of the day on Sunday, January 6th, 2013.
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, 12/30/12. In the spirit of our Twelve Days of Knitting, what is on your knitting related wish list this year?
Grace says, "I have to tell you I don't have a knitting wishlist at all... I'm trying to get rid of stuff :) Maybe just a "woolly winder" for my wheel and a Coco Knits blocking mat set :) - That might be it.... oh and of course a second set of hands, so I can knit more :)"
And, here's mine: I really want one of these and a set of these would be awesome! And, since we're putting in our requests, I would like a second pair of hands as well! ;)
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.
