Little Skein in the Big Wool ~ Giveaway!

Hi, Knitters,
First off, thank you so much for the fantastic response to the handspun yarn sale, it was sold out in a matter of hours (minutes for most of it), and to the Gratitude pattern sale. I appreciate you all and thanks for making last week so much fun.

Today I want to share a fun Etsy shop with you, Little Skein in the Big Wool. The name of the shop is what first got me interested. It's a great shop name. Ann Vally, the artist behind the shop, creates fairytale-themed stitch marker sets, gift cards for handknits, zipper pulls, and project bags. I have four sets of stitch markers from Little Skein and they are my favorites. I have never had a single stitch marker where the bead pops off (which I have had happen with other stitch markers in this style) and I love the special stitch marker with the charm in each set. It's all so sweet and well done.

All of the stitch marker sets come in tiny glass jars or vials with a cork at the top. I keep my sets right in the adorable glass vials. I love them and I think you will, too. The presentation is charming and the stitch markers feel so good on the needles in between your beautiful knit stitches.

Here is the description from the shop:
{ THEMED, ARTISAN KNITTING ACCESSORIES } Here at littleskein, you'll find artisan-quality project bags and stitch markers, handcrafted by a knitter for knitters. I design most items around a theme, usually inspired by children's literature and fairy tales. My items feature adorable and thoughtful details like extra top-stitching, a special zipper pull, or unique charm. I use materials sourced from around the globe -- particularly Japanese fabrics and European charms and findings.

Aren't they wonderful? They are worth a try! My newest set is Snoopy-themed. When I saw Snoopy pop up in the shop I had to get it.

The addition of little bunny-themed handknit gift cards and envelopes is another sweet item in the shop. I have a set of these, too, and each card is like a little piece of art. Sweet is the best word to describe everything in Little Skein in the Big Wool.

Ann Vally has generously given me the opportunity to share some of her delightful items with you! Thank you, Ann.

I will randomly pick 3 winners. Two winners will each win a set of stitch markers of your choice from the available sets in the shop. One winner will win a set of the lovable bunny gift cards. Please leave one comment on this blog post. Please leave a Ravelry id or email so I can contact you if your comment wins.

Good luck! Be sure to check out this fun shop on Etsy! Click here for Little Skein!
best, susie
