To celebrate my latest pattern and that fact that my two older kids are now back at school, I’m having a little giveaway this week. The lucky winner will both a copy of the Summer Is a State of Mind pattern AND a skein of Alpha B Luxe B yarn with which to make it.
A little bit about the yarn: fingering weight, 50% merino, 50% silk, 437 yards. The colorway of the giveaway skein is called Glass Floats, a subtly variegated pale blue-y green with hints of yellow. Retails for $34. It’s very pretty and it is taking a great deal of willpower not to just keep it for myself.
To enter the giveaway, you can do one or all of the following:
- Ok, here’s my embarrassing confession: when I moved over from Blogger to WordPress, I lost all my followers. There’s some incredibly simple way of fixing this and getting them all back but for the life of me, I can’t figure out what it is. SO, in an effort to get back to where I was, I’m asking entrants to sign up to follow the blog. Just hit the RSS symbol in the upper right and follow the instructions, then leave a comment below saying you’re now signed up.
- Follow me on Twitter. Click on the cute little bird icon at the top of the page, follow me, then leave a comment below letting me know.
- Tweet about this giveaway. Again, leave a comment letting me know.
Right now, comments are moderated so don’t be concerned if they don’t show up immediately. PLEASE make sure you leave a valid e-mail address when you comment, otherwise I won’t know how to get in touch with you.
You can enter anytime until 11:59 pm (PST), Saturday, September 17. A winner will be chosen at random and I’ll announce the name on Sunday. Anyone is welcome to enter. If you live within the continental USA, I’ll send the yarn out priority mail on Monday; if you live anywhere else, I may send it by a slower/cheaper method.
Have fun and good luck!
PS Be sure to leave separate comments for each entry–that way I can simply assign a number to each entry and won’t miss any. Thanks!
