it’s time, again

It’s to celebrate having so many followers!  Originally it was going to be celebrating 50 followers, but I have 82 now, which is so exciting!

what you get:

First, you get 5 small skeins of different kinds of yarns from KnitPicks.  Personally I like all of them, but the reason I’m sharing these with you is because they are all easy care, and hopefully you’ve never tried them before and can use something new!

Next, you get 3 hooks.  This is what took so long.  I tried to buy 3 Brittany hooks and they were out of 2 of them, so they had to substitute Surina hooks instead.  I think that’s fine, as each of these hooks looks lovely and functional at the same time.  So you get a D hook, an H hook, and a J hook.  I got these sizes because these are the ones I use most often and I hope they will be useful for you!

And finally, you get some really cute buttons!  Some of them are a little small, but they’d be perfect for baby items or something delicate.  There are 21 buttons — you get the exact ones pictured!

So to review, this is what you will get if you win:

how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post to enter.
  2. Share this post, or a link to it, on your own blog.

That’s it!  Unlike my last giveaway, everybody gets 1 entry this time (I don’t want the drawing to be confusing, and I have a feeling I’ll have more than 4 entrants this time).  You have until 6/26/12 to enter, which is a week from today.  After the entering is closed, I will randomly draw a winner, and they will have until the 1st of July to claim their prize.  If it is not claimed, I will re-draw at that time.

Thanks for entering, and good luck!
