Surprise Giveaway and More!

The contest for Knit Circus is now closed!!! No more entries are being taken. May 15th, 2010.

Hi Knitters,
I have a fun surprise for you today. Jaala Spiro, the editor-in-chief of Knit Circus, has generously offered an amazing giveaway opportunity to all of you! Knit Circus is a fantastic online knitting magazine that includes gorgeous patterns for purchase, free articles and tips, recipes and a featured sewing project in each issue. Be sure to check Knit Circus out if you haven't already done so.

In the current issue that just came out, I have an interview and a free pattern for the Panda and Zebra Puppets from Itty-Bitty Toys. Make sure to get that pattern if you are interested.

This is one of the biggest giveaways I have hosted so I am pretty excited about it. Here is what the Knit Circus giveaway includes:
5 knitters will each win the pattern collection from the current issue!
2 knitters will each win a free subscription to Knit Circus!

That is awesome, Jaala! Thank you so much for this opportunity. To enter simply leave one comment on this post. Leave your name, ravelry name, or an email address so I can easily contact you. I will be randomly selecting 7 winners in a few days. I will post the winners' names here so be sure to check back to see if you won.

Let the comments begin!
The Dream Catcher Hat in the photos is the newest free pattern now available on my other blog, Spud says!

Click here for the pattern information and free download! This is a quick and easy hat and a great way to use up leftover yarn. I made it to use up some of the leftover Sweater yarn from the Dream Catcher Baby Blanket.

I have been doing a bit of crochet as of late. I have a couple of fun projects in the works that won't be released for awhile. I also have a couple of new Spud & Chloƫ pattern line designs that will be released very soon. I will share those with you as soon as I get the okay. That's all fun and good.

I have a few fun links to share to finish out today! Here they are:
When I get my sewing machine working and I have more time I am going to order bundles of this fabric from here! Alabama Chanin is all about the hand-stitching and so am I! I have recently acquired her two books and I am going crazy over the projects. They are a must do!

That'll do for today. Enter the giveaway if you'd like. I'll be back soon.
best, susie
