I HEART Yarn Day GIVEAWAY!

Friday, October 11th, 2013

I Love Yarn Day….As opposed to what??? Who would dare say the opposite even out loud!!?

Even people who don’t knit/crochet/spin/weave/needlepoint walk into a Yarn Shop and are in awe of the beauty. The colors, the textures, the creativity just oozing out of every corner can make almost anyone swoon.  Believe me, I have taken my husband into shops and when he comments about it, I know I am not half crazy.

So when you find yourself in a slump, doldrums, or caught between a rock and a loss of the next project, step into you LYS or better yet the next yarn shop down the street for variety, and see what transpires!  Look over the shelves of yarns, gadgets, and then peruse the books.  OH! The Books!!!

This leads me to a few we have found inspiring!  Martingale and Plymouth are doing a cross promotion.  Check out their website.  We will be having a contest.  To enter, just leave a comment on this blog post.  (One winner will be chosen at random on Tuesday October 15th!)  The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate for any book from Martingale of your choice.  Then head to Martingale and see what Plymouth  will be giving away on their website!  Cool?! Yeah, cool!!  This one is my fave!  Check it out:

Martingale - Successful Lace Knitting (Print version + eBook bundle)

Nice, huh?  So, reply to our blog entry and you will be automatically entered into our random drawing for the Martingale gift certificate.  Then go to Martingale’s website and see how you can win a great pattern and yarn from Plymouth!   We will announce the lucky winner of the Martingale gift certificate on Tuesday the 15th of October (since Monday is Columbus Day!).
