Palette Contest Winner

Wow.

This was the biggest response to contest we’ve ever had. Since the overwhelming response resulted in some issues with commenting on the blog late in the weekend, we counted comments on other blog posts, emails & social media places – which brought the total entries to over 28,000!

There were so many wonderful comments & ideas on what to do with 150 skeins of Palette! (since I was approving the comments, I read them all!). To keep it fair, we randomly drew a winner from all the entries. So a big congratulations to Nan in Minnesota, who commented:

I would give them to the girls in our school knitting club to use in this year’s charity project–making sweaters for our adopted orphanage in Kenya.

We hope Nan will share photos of these wonderful girls using our yarn and that they have fun making some very special gifts!

Announcing our “Yarn with a View” Instagram Contest

instagram_contest

 

The most important thing I’ve learned from our recent foray into Instagram is that you folks are taking your knitted and crocheted works-in-progress EVERYWHERE:  parks, gyms, schools, buses, planes, beaches, literal mountain tops, you-name-it.

That’s why I’m pleased to announce “Yarn with a View”, our first-ever Instagram contest! It’s a chance for you to share the gorgeousness of your projects, your versatility as an on-the-go crafter—and maybe win a delightful $50 Knit Picks gift card in the process.

Reclaiming the Fall – and a giveaway

Comments are now closed – Stay tuned for the winners!

Fall has always been my favorite time of year – even when I was young, I was always excited when September rolled around: the weather starts getting cooler, the leaves begin to turn, and hot apple cider and various pumpkin flavored items begin to appear in shops. (How much do I love fall?  Well this guy pretty much sums up my excitement)
