Now for another great contest! My first shawl pattern is scheduled to be released next week. I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway. I will be giving away 3 printed copies of the LaReine pattern (Ravelry link). Plus, there is more!
The original sample is knit with 1 skein of Sena from Okayknits in the colorway, Water Green. I had bought 2 just in case, so I will be giving away the second skein for the contest. Okayknits dyes her yarns in batches of 2 skeins so each color is non-repeatable and extremely limited. I love knitting with her yarns because it doesn't pool and has such depth of color. One of you lucky winners will be getting the original yarn and color!
When Jane of Okayknits heard I was going to be running this contest, she generously offered up 2 skeins of her yarns. On the left is Sawa Sawa in the colorway, Vermeer. On the right is Sena in the colorway, Sweetie Pie.
Wait, it gets better. Tomo from Tomo and Timo wanted to add some more fun to the contest by donating 3 of her awesome fabric covered tape measures. These are the cutest tape measures. She has been selling them at yarns stores in Brooklyn and Manhattan and recently opened up a etsy shop. Her tape measures are also featured in this month's issue of Crochet Today.
There will be 3 winners. Each winner will receive a printed copy of my pattern, one skein of yarn and one tape measure. The one skein of yarn will be enough for you to make my shawl. When I announce the winners, it will be first come first serve for the choice of the yarn color. Whoever emails me first, will get first pick.
