Contest Prizes and Rules #2
I know that you have all been frantically checking my blog just waiting for this post. (Ok, so you might have popped on earlier and been a teeny bit upset that I didn't have the post up yet.) I promise you that I have been working hard and considering what I was going to give away as a prize for this contest.
Here are the rules:
July 4th is my fiance's birthday. In order to win the prize you must post a comment to my blog.
1. Post a "Happy Birthday, Will!" comment on this post or any post that comes after it from now until noon on July 4th.
2. You may post once each day for extra chances to win the prize.
3. Only those comments that have a reference to Will's birthday will be considered for the prize.
4. At 1 pm EDT Will will (ha ha) draw a winner from his hat and I will post accordingly.
5. Rules are subject to change if the need arises (though I don't think it will).
Now for the pictures. I already mentioned that I will let the lucky winner choose the two colors of their choice out of the "dish rag yarn" collection to create their very own dish rag. An example of the yarn is shown in this post. Included with that will be two very boring, but very special balls of Lionbrand Wool-Ease. These balls of Wool-Ease are very near and dear to my heart.
When I was first starting to knit I only used acrylic because it was cheap, fairly soft, and if I didn't like my work I hadn't spent a lot of money on it. As I became more proficient I started to crave the softness, durability, and naturalness of wool. I was still working for minimum wage and a college student and I hadn't yet ventured to my LYS so I went on a search for wool in the usual haunts. I finally settled on the pretty gray Wool-Ease with the intention of making Will a sweater. Now, as sweaters go, my idea was welcomed. That is, until I decided that I wasn't quite ready for a sweater. This yarn languished in my stash for some months until it finally blossomed into my first shawl. Every time I wear my shawl I think of this special Wool-Ease hiding in my stash and how "someday" I'll make something to go with my shawl. Well, my friends, because this yarn has so many good memories for me and is so special I want to give it to one of you. I want it to be the plain old yarn that brings with it so many good memories.
In addition to this yarn I have a few more treats. Want to know what I've been making the last few days? Stitch markers and a knitting journal! Included in this prize will be five stitch markers and a journal similar to the one in the picture. See all of the bunnies?
Good Luck and keep posting! Kelli
