GIVEAWAY

I'm giving away 2 prizes: The first prize is 12 skeins of Nashua Creative Focus DK yarn in coral with the Pagewood Farms needlefelting scarf kit. The second prize is the copy of Sharon Silverman's Tunisian Crochet and a signed copy of Hooked for Life by Mary Beth Temple. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by Friday, Sept 18 at 11PM Eastern time. You can tell me which prize you prefer. I'll randomly choose winners and the first pulled will get their choice. I'm sorry, but this will be open to US residents only because of shipping costs. I'll announce the winners on Monday, what would that be, the 21st? And the winners will have to follow the directions and send me the shipping address.... If I get time later, I'll bring in some links for these items. Happy Monday!

Both are great prizes! I guess the yarn would be preferred, but I'm not picky :-)
Yay for prizes!

You have The Best giveaways!

I had to think a bit on which prize I would prefer, but then my brain imagined pairs of socks in the yarn, and my feet got happy!

Due to PNS my feet are alternately cold as a frog, then hot & sweaty. And the yarn would be perfect for me. And probably a pair for my daughter too, she'd love that!

BTW - I have no problem paying the shipping costs to defray your outlay to give this lovely giveaway to us.

~~~hugs~~~

That yarn looks YUMMY!

Therese said...

I agree they both are great prizes. I like the pattern book and the signed hooked for life book. But I also am not picky.
That's for having a giveaway.

Both prizes are great, but I would have to choose the yarn. I have never used Nashua before, it looks heavenly!

TripletMom said...

Both prizes are fantastic, but my first choice would be the yarn. The end of the contest is just in time for my birthday on the 23rd. Wouldn't it be a great present to win...fingers crossed :)

Thank you for your generosity and dedication to such frequent posts. Either prize would be wonderful, but my first choice would be the books.

Trina said...

Both prizes look great, but I have been itching to get my hands on Hooked for Life!!!

Love your blog, its in my bookmarks and one of the first ones I go to every day when I get a free chance at work!!!

fracksmom said...

Wow, how awesome of you to give away yarn at a time when so many of us are unemployed. I would love the yarn for that reason. It is beautiful, and it would help with the 60 scarves in 60 days.

beekay said...

Giveaways! How generous of you!! Either prize would be wonderful, but the yarn would be my choice! I'm so glad to know about your blog!!!

Zen Frost said...

yay for giveaways! that's awesome. I agree with the others, both are great prizes. if I do get lucky and have to pick one, I'd take the yarn. but either would be great!

thanks!

Sue said...

I think the books would be great. There just aren't enough tunisian patterns. I love crochet-on-the double.

That would make me " Susan S. " from Ohio... :-)

What a wonderful contest! Both prizes are fabulous! I've been crocheting for awhile, but have never tried Tunisian crochet or needle felting, which has been calling my name if you must know. LOL! They both look great though!

Giveaways are fun! I'd prefer the books, but of course would love to win either one.

katerina said...

What fun! Thanks for the giveaway, I'd also be willing to defray costs of shipping and would be happy with either - if I had to choose, 1. yarn 2. books. Thanks again!

jersey_di said...

Wow! Awesome prizes, I think I'd prefer the yarn. How fun!

texee01 said...

Thanks for the chance to win. I love books/magazines as well as yarn (of course), so either would be wonderful; however, since I get a choice it would be the books! I love Tunisian Crochet and need more inspiration plus Hooked for Life sounds appropriate. Keep designing for us all!

Sara said...

I've been coveting Sharon's book since she commented on my blog about my tunisian crochet. Great giveaway!

Julie said...

Well, since I already own both of those great books, I guess I would choose the yarn! Looks awesome.

Share said...

What great prizes! I'd have to say I'd be partial to the books...they'd be easier to hide from DH. LOL

Thanks for sharing! :D

Hi Ellen, you just set me up with my mentor, thanks! I looked through old IC issues last night and noticed that some of my favorite designs were yours. You have great taste! I would really love to get some experience with both felting and Tunisian crochet, so I would love either, but if I had to choose it would be the yarn and needle felting. Happy crocheting today!

JLG said...

Great prizes! I would love the yarn, since I already have a copy of Hooked For Life. Good luck everyone!

Becky said...

I ran into your blog on the redheart yarn news letter, and ever since then, I've enjoyed reading your news. You are a gifted crochet artist. I am a yarn freak and would love to squeeze that yarn in person LOL.

iownapaint said...

I'd love to think about all the things I could make up with that yarn!

TheHMC said...

I love your blog. I was following it for a short time before I realized you were the designer of several patterns I was digging in my crochet mags. I really appreciate your work. I love the colors in all of your sneak peeks. I can't wait to see how the book comes out.
I'm a pattern junkie and have a ridiculous collection of WW yark so DK would be a dream for me. So..I'd be happy with anything if I were picked.
Keep up the awesome work. I check in nearly every day. Thanks for posting so often!

Gigi said...

Thanks for offering a lovely give-away!

If I'm lucky enough to be drawn...first choice is the books. =-)

Kath said...

I would definitely prefer the books, although the yarn is yummy, Ive been drooling over the tunisian book for a little while and am just learning! Hope whoever wins enjoys! I am working on your Tunisian lace ascot right now and its a wonderful starter project! So having the book would be a great continuance!

Denise said...

I love Tunisian, so the books would be my choice. You have lovely designs!
