Raffle! Free Yarn


Raffle time

You know you want to knit me!I finished knitting my Lattice Lace Wrap a couple of weeks ago. I've been really curious to see how it would look in a different color of Alpaca Cloud (I used Midnight for mine.) So I'm having a raffle. If you are the lucky winner I will send you two skeins of Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud yarn in color Iris, enough prestrung beads to knit the wrap, a printed copy of the pattern in a plastic sheet protector and a beading needle (just in case.) The only thing I'm asking in return is a photo of the finished wrap.

If you would like to knit the Lattice Lace Wrap leave me a comment on this post. On Monday 6/13, I'll randomly draw a name from all commenters. (Don't forget to check back to see if you're the winner!)

This yarn is so soft and silky. It is a joy to work with. I've already purchased two skeins in the Autumn color and one skein each in Moss and Stream. I was thinking about knitting up the Lattice Lace Wrap in Autumn or I might try a different lace pattern with a triangular shape.

Good Luck!

Oooh, I'll be the first to enter! I like your design. I've never knitted with beads before, but I'm currently working on my first lace project (a seaman's scarf from Myrna Stahman's book) and it's turning out quite well. It's in Autumn Alpaca Cloud--a lovely yarn!

Barbara said...

Hi, I'm on the AK list and came to see what was new on your blog. I would LOVE the chance to win this wonderful gift. I have been wanting to join the Summer of Lace but I'm pretty broke...and purple is my all time favorite color! Not only that, but I'm a photographer...photo guaranteed! Count me in. Thanks for sharing your blog.

Oh my what an offer!!! I am a 65 year ole granny who would love a shawl. I've never knitted lace and since I used to live in Las Vegas I still have a little of the glitz left in me and I NEED BEADS!!!! Also I never won a thing when I lived in Vegas and its my turn. He he

Ooh, it's purple and it has beads on it already! Count me in, count me in!

Lou said...

Hi. It's me, Lou.

I need to point out that I've strung the beads onto heavy cotton thread. They are not on the alpaca. It won't be difficult to string them onto the alpaca but that is the first step for the lucky winner!

Good Luck to all!

How beautiful. And the wrap isn't bad, either.

The beads are enticing as I've not done anything beaded.

Please enter me in this contest. Thanks

Yvonne said...

Wow, what a lovely design. I have set aside my beading addiction to knit and this pattern will give me the opportunity to work with both of my passions at the same time. I found your site through the link you place on the Summer of Lace group.

heidi.wollum@spray.se said...

I'd love to win, because your stole is really beautiful and makes you look awesome:-)

Ranee said...

I adore the color, I had been coveting it since seeing it in the knitpicks catalogue, and the wrap is gorgeous! If I win, I promise to send you a photo when I finish knitting, but I make no promises about how long it will take me to knit. Learning to do beaded knitting has been one of my goals this year.

Sue said...

Gorgeous wrap and colour and we can't get Knitpicks in the UK - so pick me pick me!! ;-)

Bliss said...

I just love it.

Lisa said...

Okay, sign me up! I never win these things, and with two two year olds running around, I probably shouldn't be attempting lace, but your pattern is so elegant w/out being too floral or frilly; I'd just love to try it out!

-Lisa

Yvonne said...

Love the shawl, love the colour, love the way it wraps an AK - wich knitpicks would ship to the UK!

melanie said...

Count me in. Your shawl is beautiful.. I love the idea of adding beads.

EvaLux said...

This wrap is EXACTLY what I love... the color, the beads, the lace design. If I'd designed it myself I wouldn't have done it any different!!!!
Cheers Eva

Janet K said...

The Iris looks so much nicer in your photo than it does in the knitpicks catalogue. This is a colour I would knit and use. Lovely pattern too!

Ina said...

Please enter me in the raffle. I love your pattern, but I can't find it!
