we make them to give away.

i think today’s giveaway could be all of the above.

one skein of 3-ply wool from mountain colors yarns,

wendy bernard’s book ‘up, down, all-around stitch dictionary’,

three cute pins from local yarn shop ‘in the loop’,

and a copy of my pattern ‘mixta’.

i include my pattern, because it was test knit with this same bulky weight yarn

in a different colorway.

i tend to be leary of multt-colored yarns

and cables, fearing that the stitch work will be lost,

but i really love how this yarn knit up.IMG_7542crop2it adds to the pattern instead of taking away from it.  don’t you think so?

the colorway i’m giving away is red willow (deeper reds and purples),

the perfect jewel tones for holiday cheer.

IMG_7990urband these pins will make even the crankiest knitter laugh.

not that any knitters, ever, were cranky

as they tried to push through

way too much gift

knitting…

so,

just head over here to pick your favorite colorway,

then come back and leave me a comment saying what’s your fav

and why (i love knowing stuff like this).

you have until midnight this thursday (the 11th) to leave your note.

on friday,

december 12th, i’ll choose  and announce the winner by 5pm

(that’s eastern standard time).

sounds fun, right?

get to it.

the disclaimer: mountain colors yarns

gave me this yarn to play with, but you know me.  i am

way too stubborn to be influenced toward lies or embellishment by two free

skeins of yarn.  therefore, the opinions expressed here are honest, and truthfully mine.
