The “Win Your Wishlist” Contest Returns!

Wishlistbanner

 

The task of returning gifts is a dreary leftover of the holiday season—but there are lots of artful ways to avoid improper gifting (for example, Pinterest boards abound). However, what if you could drop helpful hints AND enter a delightful contest in one fell swoop?

You can indeed:  The “Win Your Wish List” contest is back! Once again, three lucky people will win $50 worth of Knit Picks merchandise, just by creating and sharing their dream list of goodies.  Entering is easy-peasy—here’s how:

1.) First, log-in as a customer on the Knit Picks site by clicking the “My Account” button at the uppermost right of the page.

If you don’t already have an account, that too is easy business! Just click the aforementioned log-in button, enter your email address and click “Create Account”. Once all your info is filled in, you’ll be good to go.

2.) Next, make a handsome wish list. To do that, simply enter the desired item quantity, then click the “Wish List” button (extra hint: it’s located directly right of the “Add To Cart” button).

3.) Review your wish list; do this by clicking the “Wish List” tab within “My Account”.

4. ) Now that you’ve gathered your hypothetical haul, click the “Share Your Wish List” button. On the top left side of the wish list, you’ll see a form appear that allows you to email your list to anyone you please (might I particularly recommend “Rich Aunts/Uncles” and “Billionaire Love Interests”?). That’s it! You’re now entered in the contest.

    How can we let you know if we share it over social media?

  2. Elise / December 5, 2013

    I tried sharing my list and it asks me to enter the numbers and letters I see above but I see no letters. :(

  3. Tracy Wronkowski / December 5, 2013

    I cannot send my wish list because I cannot type the characters and numbers shown above because they are not showing up on my screen. Also I cannot share to facebook.

  4. Rebecca / December 5, 2013

    I’ve tried to enter this contest multiple times before, but every time I try to share my wishlist, I get this error message.
    “Error

    Love this contest! I dream of winning it someday! :)

  6. Stephanie T. / December 5, 2013

    Cant share the wish list. The Letters/Numbers sections isn’t working for me and won’t show me what to enter.

  7. Ashley B / December 5, 2013

    it won’t let me share it because the capture isn’t coming up on my browser

  8. Sheila / December 5, 2013

    The Letters/Numbers sections is not working for me either – characters do not show.

  9. Michelle / December 5, 2013

    Couldn’t send my wishlist through explorer (or so I thought), so tried chrome. Worked fine with chrome but apparently was sent 4 times total (two through chrome and two through explorer). I hope that doesn’t effect my entry into the contest. Would be very disappointed to be excluded because of a glitch like this.

  10. Chris / December 5, 2013

    fingers will be crossed till the winners are announced!

    no issues as I had been reading from others in entering contest :)

    Merry Christmas to all

  11. Beverly Tilton / December 5, 2013

I need the Sunstruck 4 inch double point needles I have 60 yo eyes and can’t see dark yarn on the harmony dbl points.

    I managed to share my wishlist on email and facebook. Hopefully it is up and running for others – if not maybe try chrome :)

  27. Julienne / December 7, 2013

    I shared my wishlist on Facebook, but whenever someone clicks on the link, it says “page not found.”

  28. Stephanie B / December 7, 2013

    I’ve shared my wish list via e-mail no problems!

    For those having issues, if you are using Internet Explorer make sure it is the newest version(10) or use Firefox or Chrome. Older versions of Internet Explorer has problems with the newest versions of HTML5 the language that is used in building web pages.

    Hope that helps!
