“If you find a non-knitter who thinks what you do is clever, beautiful, and artistic, who never asks for knitted stuff but wears it with pride when you give it to him or her, and will help you carry home a whole fleece or a stack of stitch dictionaries without once implying that you might want to get a grip - marry that person.”

GIVEAWAY!


*DO NOT REMOVE THIS TEXT! IT WILL NOT SHOW - JUST THE PICTURE.


I’m going to be doing a giveaway of some of my handknit stuff! Pictured are two phone/iPod cozies and a chapstick cozy. These will keep your phones from getting scratched while in a purse or other bag, and the chapstick cozy keeps it from getting that yucky purse/bag fuzz all on it.

The winner will get to pick from the rainbow cozy, which is knit from yarn I spun myself, and the other phone cozy WITH the chapstick cozy. The rainbow one is 100% Polworth and the other phone cozy, as well as the chapstick cozy, are made from an unknown, hand dyed fiber.

RULES:

  • Must be following me
  • Likes won’t count
  • Reblog as many times as you want!
  • This must get 50 notes by April 20th.
  • I will pick names from a hat on April 20th! Your name will be in the hat once for every reblog, so the more your reblog the more chances you’ll get!
  • I will ship anywhere!
  • Don’t delete the post until the drawing! Otherwise it won’t show that you reblogged it and you won’t be in the drawing.

Feel free to ask me any questions! (:

(Whatever isn’t chosen will go up in my etsy shop soon after, so be sure to keep your eye out!)

All yarn is hand-dyed by myself on a sturdy 75% wool, 25% nylon sock-weight base. The yarn is superwash, but minimal bleeding is possible due to the hand-dyed nature of the yarn, so caution is urged when washing. All dyes are food-safe ;-)

Unfortunately, there are RULES:
-I’ll ship anywhere in the world.
-must REBLOG to enter, likes don’t count
-but no more than five (5) reblogs, more will get you disqualified.
-you don’t have to be following me :-) but feel free to if you want information on future shop updates!
-you should have your ask box open so I can contact you! If the winner doesn’t respond within 48 hours of notification, another winner will be chosen.
-contest ends at 11:59 PM US Central Time April 8th. Winner will be contacted April 9th.
-questions go here

Good Luck!
