Well, giveaway week actually. This week is the massive blog giveaway day, coordinated by the fabulous SewMamaSew blog.
They amass links to hundreds of blogs, with giveaways of hand-made bags, kids items, plus lots and lots of people offering up craft supplies too. Whilst the majority are fabric orientated (it is a sewing blog after all!), there are also gems of yarn up for grabs, and who amongst us wouldn’t benefit from another project bag?! You can find the links page on their website here.
Those of you who read Knitters Rumble regularly, will know that we are three bloggers – Julianna, Emily and Amy, all completely obsessed with knitting, crochet and spinning. You can read more about us on our players page. We compete (in a mostly friendly way!) to earn points for our projects. The winner at the end of the year will be crowned with a paper crown!
So what treats have the three of us come up with? Well each of us have contributed to come up with a little bounty of fun for the lucky winner.
First up Emily has a pdf of her most popular design – the granny slouch. It is a devilishly wonderful mash up of crochet and knitting, check out how cute this is:
The pattern will be sent as a pdf to the luck winner, so make sure to include an email address we can send it to!
Amy will be hand-crafting one of her fabulous sheepy tape-measure cosies for the lucky winner. You’ll never be short of a measure again with this cheeky chappy, just pull on his tail to release the measure (it doesn’t hurt him honestly!).
And check out the gorgeous handspun that Julianna is adding to the pot:
It is a Thick and thin single ply handspun yarn, weighing 50g, around 55 yds. This ranges from worsted to bulky and in colour from Electric blue to acid green. It’s a super soft wool and shiny kid mohair that she blended on her drum carder. So so beautiful!
