The giveaway has now ended. Thanks for your interest!
This is my 200th post! In honor of that, I will be giving away some patterns to my readers!
This giveaway will run until June 30, 2011. It is open to anyone in the world who has an email address. (Though, obviously, it helps if you're a knitter! ;)
First prize is a copy of every one of my pay patterns available to date - The Grateful Crane, Russell Square Mitts, Russell Square Tam, Alessandrite Socks, and Three Sachets, plus one more pattern of the winner's choice, by any designer, so long as it is available as a Ravelry download and at a maximum cost of $10.
Second prize is a choice of any two of my pay patterns (listed above).
Third prize is a choice of any one of my pay patterns (listed above).
The prizes will be delivered, via Ravelry gift, to the recipient's email account -- if you have a Ravelry account, then the patterns will also appear in your Ravelry library, entitling you to all future updates of the pattern(s).
To enter, there are two steps:
1. Sign up for my brand-new newsletter. When you leave a comment, I will check that you're on the list! :) There are two lists, sign up for either or both - The Weekly Blog Roundup is a weekly compilation of blog posts, while the Design Updates is a more occasional email with news about my patterns (free and pay).
2. Leave a comment on this post, telling me you've signed up. For an extra entry, tell me who your favorite knitwear designer is and why. I'll start:
My favorite designer is Cat Bordhi. She is so endlessly creative, and I love how she can think outside the box with knitwear. She has perfected the knitted mobius and fantastic sock constructions. I take a lot of inspiration from her, and I aspire to be even a quarter as creative as she is.
