we get them.
we give them away.
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.it 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.
and 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
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.
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.
