Wild West eBooks Giveaway

August 4

One of the best things that have come from my involvement in the world of knitting has been getting to know interesting, fun and creative people. Stephannie Tallent is such a friend. I’ve been watching in awe as her design career has blossomed. She is truly amazing!

One of Stephannie’s design projects has been her series inspired by the years she spent living in Arizona. Aptly named The Wild West, the collection consists of five ebooks, with themes based on techniques such as cables, stranding, textures and lace. I will be giving away the entire series to one lucky winner!

Click on the image of each cover to see the patterns for each:

To win this fabulous collection, enter a comment here on this post by the end of the day on August 14th (midnight Eastern Time). Please include your contact information in your comment so I can let you know if you’re the winner. I’ll be conducting a random drawing.

Kristin Omdahl Yarn Giveaway

June 17

 

One of the things I like best about TNNA, our industry trade show, is being introduced to new yarns. Kristin Omdahl, who I’ve known as a designer, has a line of beautiful 100% bamboo yarns called Bamboo So Fine.

I came home with a skein of Kristin’s fingering weight “b. so fine” in a lovely pale lavender color. The sheen from the bamboo gives it almost a silvery glimmer, and the hand-dyed color includes lovely subtle variations. I’m excited about using it in Romi Hill’s Lyrica Euterpe shawl pattern. The yarn is so soft and has such lovely drape, it’ll be just right!

I also have a skein of the sport weight version of the yarn, calle “b. so sporty”. I will give it away in a random drawing from comments left on this post. At 325 yards (297m), it will easily make a small shawlette, hat, mitts, or even a baby garment. (I found oodles of patterns on Ravelry for sport weight projects using 300 yards or less).

The sport yarn comes in a cute drawstring bag and includes a sample of Kristin’s special no-rinse wash. It’s jasmine scent is heavenly. She has a balm with the same scent, which I’ll also include in the giveaway. She calls her line of scented products “Wrapture”. Clever, eh?
