Yep, it’s that time of the year, when our thoughts turn to …. gift knitting! Â Whether it’s a gift for a loved one (or yourself!) this is the time we start contemplating our stash, our pattern & book library, and the number of days left that you have to knit, oh, twenty odd gifts (well, hopefully less, but sometimes more!).
In general, you’ll be thinking small objects: Â hats, socks (but not fingering weight, those have a deceptively large number of stitches), cowls, shawlettes, and ….. mittens!
Full mittens, fingerless mittens, either is fine: Â the key is something that is useful, beautiful, fun to knit, and quick. Â A good work to glory ratio is desirable. Â I will humbly state that I think many of my mitten patterns do have a good work to glory ratio.
On that note….here’s the giveaway details.
What do you need to do? Â Sorry, this is going to be a bit more involved than my normal ‘leave a comment posts’. Â I do need you to leave a comment on this post, telling me if you’re going to be knitting any holiday gifts this year & if so, approximately how many. Â If you sign up for my mailing list (right sidebar), leave a second post stating that you did. Â Ditto for a third chance: Â tweet about this & let me know via a comment on this post.
So, three chances to win. Â I’ll check in with Random.org after midnight PST November 15th to pick the winners. Â Leave me a way to contact you!
And here’s another teaser pic from my upcoming book, California Revival Knits. Â These are the full Quatrefoil mitts, worked in Impulse of Delight BFL. Â The colors are incredible and the yarn is fantastic to work with!
