100th Post Giveaway


8/10, 9:07 am: This giveaway is now closed.


I'm having my first giveaway! When I started this blog six months ago I didn't really know what to expect, and since then I have made so many wonderful new friends and learned so much from all of you. This giveaway is my way of saying thank you!

Here is what you can win-- there will be two names drawn. One person will win eleven fat quarters ...



And another person will win the three skeins of yarn shown below. The Cash Vero yarn is a blend of Merino Wool, cashmere and microfiber. It is super soft and lovely to knit with.


The Claudia Hand Painted Fingering Yarn is 100% Merino Wool and the colors are just gorgeous. I've used it to make miniature knitting bags.


To enter your name in the giveaway, please leave a comment letting me know if you would like the fat quarters or the yarn (or if you'd be happy with either one). To get a second entry, mention this giveaway on your blog and let me know about it in the comments. Please feel free to post the pictures on your blog.

Everyone is welcome to enter the giveaway, no matter where you live or whether you are new to my blog. Just be sure I have a way of contacting you.

I'll be leaving soon for a little getaway, so I'll pick a random winner when I get back on Monday, August 10. Thanks!

Stacy

Congtatulations on your 100th post, I am so glad Deb suggested I check you out! I don't knit so I would prefer the fat quarters:) Have a blessed day and enjoy whatever you do today!!!

I love your blog. I am a novice knitter and wish I could knit as well as you do. Maybe someday. Congratulations on your 100th post. Be blessed.

I think I'm hyperventilating. ELEVEN fat quarters... WOOL... Oh my goodness, this is a very generous giveaway. I honestly don't know which prize I like the best. The fabric is gorgeous and would be used up for sure, but that yarn is so pretty and could cause me to pick up knitting again. Yikes!

Okay, I'm breathing now. haha.

I'll post on my blog and then come back to visit again...
