It can be hard to get excited about knitting in the summer, I know! When it’s extra hot, a lapful of wool is one of the least appealing things in the world. Finding motivation to stitch can be hard when you know that even if you do weave in all the ends on your WIP, it’s certainly too hot to wear that lopapeysa you finally steeked! (Not that anyone would ever be in that boat…)
Never fear, fiber friends! In an effort to keep your needles clicking (or hooks hooking, or looms humming…) this summer, I present to you the Big Summer Giveaway! It’s like our monthly yarn review & giveaway for August, but times four! In addition to yarn, the Wrap Up Your WIPs Giveaway prize package includes Eucalan Fiber Wash, a Social Knitworking tote from Artiphany, a Knitter’s Pride Knit & Purr Interchangeable Needle Set, and a Faded Flare Wrap Kit (my design!) from Zen yarn Garden. This prize package is epic – worth over $275! To enter, scroll to the bottom of this post. The normal entry methods are available, but you can super enter (your name goes in the drawing 5 times instead of just 1) for every WIP you finish by the end of August. This giveaway is a fun way to encourage folks in need of a bit of a push to wrap up those works-in-progress before fall hits. If you’ve got any questions that aren’t covered in this post, please feel free to reach out in the comments.
Up top, there’s a shot of the Knit & Purr Interchangeable Knitting Needles set if you’d like to see how it looks, and below are pictures of the other prizes featured in the Wrap Up Your WIPs Giveaway. I wanted to pause to say a quick, sincere thank you to Artiphany, Eucalan, Knitter’s Pride & Zen Yarn Garden for providing the prizes for this giveaway.
The Social Knitworking tote bag is absolutely adorable. I have one of my own, and it’s great for larger projects on-the-go! Seriously, mine has basically become my “briefcase” for carrying stuff between home and the Studio.
As a designer having recently finished a pattern with Zen Yarn Garden’s Superfine Fingering yarn (90/10 sw superfine merino/nylon, approx. 400 yds/skein), I can attest that it’s really nice to knit with. I’ve worked with ZYG for other reviews as well if you’d like to read more about their yarns.
Last but not least, the fiber wash and knitting needles featured are my favorites to use on a regular basis as a knitter. And now, here’s me doing my best tattooed Vanna White impression with fiber wash 😉:
