Patchwork Wrap-Up & Video Product Review



Hi Knitters,

I have a fun video product review and prize winners for you today from the Patchwork Sockalong. Even if you didn't participate in the knitalong, the video is a good review of many of my favorite products. The video is how I announced the winners of the Patchwork Sockalong that just finished up on the Itty-Bitty Knits Ravelry group, which is my group if you'd like join us. I will be hosting another knitalong soon over there. We had so much fun and produced almost 100 pairs of brand new Patchwork socks.

The prizes are incredibly exciting and generous. I contacted some of my most favorite companies, designers, independent yarn/fiber sellers and Etsy shop owners and everyone said yes. I couldn't believe it. Please go and visit their sites and shops (click on the links below) and tell them I sent you their way. Thank you a million times over to everyone who donated.

Here is the list and links of prizes and winners by ravelry id:
Vesper Mini-Skein Kit of sock yarn! Winner - lizardknits
Cakewalk Yarns, 1 skein of sock yarn! Winner - pinkdaisy
Kristin Nicholas' Garden Effects Regia sock yarn, 2 balls! Winner - plashus
Knitpurlgurl, Abi Grasso, 1 skein of Rainbow and Clouds striping sock yarn! Winner - iluvalpacas
Sewbendy Bag! Winner - vanillamilkshake
Sun Valley Yarn, 1 skein each for 4 winners! Winners - armida21, melissabear, Kally, savannahgal
Sunshine Yarns, 1 skein of sock yarn! Winner - pattytrish
Signature Needle Arts, 1 set of 4, US size 1, double-pointed needles! Winner - JennFM

In the video I repeatedly said sunvalleyyarns.com instead of sunvalleyfibers.com, so please take note of this correction. Jeanette, the owner, donated 4 prizes!

I was so appreciative of Signature Needle Arts for donating the set of their exquisite dpns as they rarely donate prizes. I thank them for sharing so generously. These needles are beyond beautiful and luxurious.

What a great video!! Congratulations on the success of your knit-along and what wonderful gifts! I usually cannot/do not join knit alongs 'cause it takes so long for me to finish anything bigger than a baby hat :-) (btw I give myself pep-projects of itty bitty hats to keep me motivated as I try to finish my socks and shawl)I enjoy your blog!

Those are all so cute! I love your sock pattern, but I only started knitting socks this year so I don't have very many left-over bits to work with yet. Am definitely looking forward to making the patchwork version when I do!

I hope it's okay, I mentioned you in my blog this morning: bloomsburycafe.wordpress.com. Hope you have a lovely day!
