Today I have not one, but two very exciting giveaways for you all to enter! Back in the Fall I was extremely flattered to be asked by Veronik Avery to be a model for her wonderful St-Denis magazine. Issue 3, Spring 2011, is officially available, and her brand new website has launched and I am pleased as punch to have an extra copy of the magazine to giveaway to one lucky winner. But that's not all! With the magazine I am also including a Four Seasons Hat kit in the Autumn colourway. I don't know if you all know me well enough to recognize the back of my head, but that lovely cover girl on the front of the magazine... it's me!
I'm modeling the Lucky Seven Beret designed by Robin Melanson. I think that the yarn in the Four Seasons Hat kit would substitute very nicely in this pattern. There are a few other stranded knitting patterns in the magazine as well that would look lovely in TFA Blue Label yarn.
Today I'm doing a double giveaway, so with each entry you are entered to win one of two fabulous prizes. Double the chance to win, double the fun! The second prize is for one skein of yarn and one awesome knitting tool: the Gleener! You may remember me going on and on about how wonderful it is after I "gleened" my blanket earlier this spring. Well, that blog post caught the attention of "the Gleener girl" and she so generously offered a Gleener for me to giveaway to a lucky reader. Along with the Gleener I'm throwing in a skein of my Purple Label Cashmere sock yarn in Teal. I'm currently knitting a pair of socks with this very colourway and it's lovely. Since cashmere tends to be a bit more prone to pilling than my hardier superwash merino's it seems like the perfect skein to go hand in hand with this de-fuzzing tool. This skein would make a lovely little Sunnyside baby sweater don't ya think?
One comment enters you in both giveaways. Be sure to include your e-mail address or Ravelry username so I can get a hold of you should you win. You can get additional entries if you post about the contest on Twitter or your blog (so if you post on both Twitter AND your blog, AND comment here, you'll get three chances to win!) If you do Tweet or blog about it, please leave another comment here to let me know. Two winners will be chosen at random and announced on Friday, June 3rd. Good luck!
