giveaway #114

The winner of the Olga Vest giveaway is:

Katie

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


The time has come for me to change things up a bit! I've been wanting to give my blog a different direction for awhile now and the timing is finally working out. I've been hosting regularly scheduled giveaways for over 3 years and I'm a bit worn out by them! Actually, not necessarily worn out, but let's put it this way, void of inspiration as of late. Don't get me wrong, I love hosting giveaways, meeting new knitting folks, reading your lovely comments and sending winning prizes to lucky followers, but I've come to a point where I'd like to do more things with my space here. I have lots of exciting changes coming soon! And, don't worry, because I still have wonderful and generous giveaways coming your way - just in different formats that I can't yet share!

So, for this last regularly scheduled giveaway I'm going to follow tradition and put up for grabs all the unclaimed prizes I have in my possession from the last 6 months. Here is a collage of some of the yarns:


GA113


SIX followers have a chance of winning a selection (done by me) of leftovers in two weeks. No patterns, just good old yarn skeins!

I hope you'll stick around to see what I have in store for you. I'm really very excited and can't wait to share!


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, 7/14/13. It's a freebie! Just leave any comment.


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

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Hard to believe that it's been 3 years, and yet there have been so many wonderful interviews, it must have been at least that long.

The question on everyone's lips is "What will she do next?" Only Time will tell - and Time ain't talking.

Thanks again for all the great giveaways.

Change is good and, although I'm pretty much a newbie to your blog, I'm looking forward to the new you. I've enjoyed the blog 'as is'...I just know that feeling in a bit of a rut (if I read between the lines correctly) leads creative people to change. I look forward to the new space.

So terrible that there have been unclaimed giveaways... but great for us to get the chance ourselves again...
I will say, i love your giveaways and just recently found you a few months ago but i am looking forward to perhaps some blog postings of "other things". You do come across some great designers and shops and i love finding new things recommended by others. I hope you aren't burnt out completely and we can see blog postings or rav group postings on a regular basis.
Thx for evrrything you have done up til now and for whatever little bit of difference you give us.
