This week has been intense, but it’s November, which means Thanksgiving is in a couple weeks. And you know what I’m thankful for? You. All of you who love yarn so much that you’ve got friends who think your yarn love might even be weird. We are all members of the same strange fiber tribe, aren’t we? I think that’s something worth celebrating, so today, I’ve got a surprise giveaway & pattern sale to help put a little positivity in the world!
Up for grabs, I’ve got 2 skeins of Louet Gems fingering weight yarn in Champagne and Marine Blue, a copy of my Turtle Mitts pattern, and a copy of The Knitter’s Journal: From Swatch to Stash. The yarn is a pair of high contrast colors of one of my favorite yarns on the planet from Louet. The Turtle Mitts (pictured below) were designed with this yarn, and my Leucadia wrap was too. Louet Gems Fingering is springy and has a nice, even twist to it and comes in many great colors. Pardon the pun, but when I discovered this yarn I really did feel like I’d unearthed a hidden gem!
If you’ve never come across The Knitter’s Journal, there are a few key points I’d like to highlight. It’s a huge help for keeping your yarn habit in line, particularly if you like to design your own patterns or simply make tweaks to existing favorites. There are sturdy pocket pages you can store your swatches right in, and its spiral binding helps the book lay open when your hands are occupied. The book also features glossy cardboard pages to help keep track of your stash, including little holes to help wrangle bits of yarn for reference. It is a great tool for keeping your stash, swatches and design notes in order!

Nice patterns and good ideas
Thanks for an awesome giveaway. I adore the look of the mitts! I really love the colors of the two hanks too. I’m really interested in the Knitters Journal too. I’ve often thought ‘oh, I’ll remember that!”..yeah, every knitters famous last words.LOL I look forward to exploring more about the journal. I’m crossing my fingers that the giveaway is open to Canadian residents as well…it’s not stipulated anywhere who all the contest is open to. Thanks for an amazing chance, and the fabulous coupon for more of your patterns. I’ll definitely be using that for some christmas gifts. :)
It’s open to US & Canada. Whenever you enter, there’s a bit of text that says “By submitting, I agree to the terms & conditions,” in which you’ll find all the details. Just a heads up.
Best of luck,
Great give away.😁
Fabulous giveaway. Whether or not I win, thanks for fabulous patterns and ideas.
I love the pattern on these mitts. They really DO look like turtles!
Thank you,, Heidi. I like the Turtle Mitt design.
Super Excited!!! Thanks for the giveaway!!!
Yep, thanks! Lovely yarn!
I found your site when I was looking for instructions on knitting ends together so that I could finish my infinity Brioche cowl/scarf. I was lucky enough to check out your site in time to join the giveaway.
I love to read and knit too!
I’m the webmaster for my local LYS during my free time as well so I really appreciate your responsive and modern site.
Thanks so much! I’m actually in the middle of an update project for the layout, so it’s good to know I’m doing okay so far. :)
Thanks so much for doing this! This is a great thing for you to do! I really like the prizes, too!
Thanks for the thoughtful giveaway!
What great colors… so delighted to be getting your emails now. Most of my email blog notes are from quilting blogs — your’s is refreshing. Thank you so much…
I love the color of the yarns!
Thanks for the chance and Hapoy Thanksgiving to all!
I may have good manners, but my tablet can’t spell ‘good.’ As I tried to say: Happy Thanksgiving to all. (I’m not sure what ‘hapoy’ is :» )
