Giveaway (Free To Enter): Win Your Perfect 10 Patterns

Giveaway (Free To Enter): Win Your Perfect 10 Patterns

I haven’t done a giveaway in a long time, so I thought that on the first day of September, a month which always feels like it marks the turning of the weather and a great time to immerse myself in yarn, needles and hooks, it would be a good time to get a giveaway going in aid of encouraging some knitting and crochet action.

In this free to enter giveaway you can win your choice of any ten single patterns from my pattern store, a prize worth up to $50. Patterns range from shawls, hats, mittens and scarves to keep you warm from the first light frosts through deepest winter, to socks, homewards, Christmas treats and 400 million year old seabed arthropod toys.

Once the giveaway has closed the winner will have up to one year to choose their ten patterns, so some credits may be retained for future pattern releases in the next year if you would like to give yourself an occasional treat. Alternatively, you may choose multiple copies of the some pattern, so if you are part of a knitting group  (including online knitting groups and bloggers) you might like to choose a number a copies of a single design and host a knit-along.

One very simple way for me to get in touch if you do not belong to the services listed or have a blog/website of your own is to put the URL of your Ravelry Profile in the Name/URL fields, or mention your Ravelry name at the end of your comment.Entering the giveaway is extremely simple and completely free.

Hello. Again.

Hello. Again.

Oh, er… Hi.

This is a bit awkward, bumping into you like this. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? How have you been doing? Me, er, yeah, I’m fine. You know, had a bit of a hard time there for a bit, but everything is a lot better now. Actually, it’s pretty fantastic and I am happy. The old blog? Nope, it’s gone I’m afraid, but hey, check out this new one. It’s all shiny.
So, what was I up to whilst I was away? Well I moved house quite a few times, and I have lived in quite a few different areas of the country now. From around other areas of the North-West, then right up to the North East, in Whitley Bay, where I met a lovely knitting group who met at Ring-a-Rosie, and then down to where I live now. Oh, and my book came out!

I didn’t really mention on my last blog that I was writing a book. I wanted to keep it a surprise for the day it was released, but by then I had moved, I never had access to the internet and I lost my blog, so perhaps my biggest and proudest F/O to date never got its moment in the spotlight.
So, instead, I’m going to kick this new blog off with a bit of excitement. I’ve got a copy of my book, The Knitting Pocket Bible, to give away to one commenter drawn at random.
The draw will take place on Thursday 1st March, selected by a random number generator. If you would like to be contacted via Ravelry, should you happen to be the person drawn from the hat, then leave a link to your Ravelry Profile in the URL field of the ‘comments’ section. The competition is open worldwide, and if, perchance, you happen to win and already own a copy, just provide me with the name and address of a lucky friend and I’ll swish it their way. Or keep two copies for yourself – you can’t be too careful now.
Of course, if you can’t wait to get your hands on a copy, then it’s available via all good online retailers. UK folks may want to find it cheapest on the very catchily named finditcheapest.com. Alternatively it is available in both the Kindle store and on iBooks, for those who prefer their books to be less papery.
So, there we go, a first post, and that wasn’t too awkward. I’ll get back to updating you with news of knitting and crafting soon, but for now please update your bookmarks and RSS feeds to this new website address and don’t forget to comment for your chance to win.
