Giving Back Giveaway

charity

This time of year, so many of us are busy finishing holiday gifts. Some of us, like me, are just getting started. But what is important over the holidays and the chilly winter days is the knitting and crocheting we are doing for charity. At Plymouth Yarn, a cause near and dear to our hearts are chemo caps but, there are so many in need. Lap blankets, baby hats and blankets, helmet liners for our soldiers, prayer shawls and the list goes on.

Plymouth Yarn wants to hear about your charity projects. What are some of your favorite items to knit and crochet for your area? Where do you see the most need? We are avid supporters of charitable giving and would like to reward one lucky commenter for all of their wonderful work. We have just one prize this time…a copy of Dora Ohrenstein’s new book Top-Down Crochet Sweaters, Fabulous Patterns with Perfect Fit, featuring the Isabel Sweater in Bio Sesia 5 (photos courtesy of Storey Publishing and Melinda di Mauro on Ravelry) and 10 balls of organic cotton Bio Sesia 5 to complete the project!

The book is full of elegant and classic designs. You can also buy your own copy here and see Dora’s designs on Ravelry.

How to Win: please comment on our blog about your charity knitting/crocheting and tell us your favorite item to make for charity. One person will be chosen at random to win the book and the 10 balls of Bio Sesia 5 needed to make the stunning Isabel sweater. Contest is open from now until November 28th, 2016. Winner will be picked November 29th, 2016 and notified via email provided with comment. US residents over 18 years of age only. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Plymouth Yarn employees and immediate family are not eligible.

You can also check out the Ravelry group Crochet Insider where they are doing a Top Down CAL for the book!
