Happy Monday to all! It occurred to me I haven't had a giveaway in a long time. So I decided to gift someone with some yummy yarn!
Seven skeins of Canada Knitting yarn. The label says it's orlon (acrylic) and wool. Each skein is 4 ounces. I'd love to see the winner make something warm and snuggly to get through the cold winter.
Easy entry: leave a comment on this post. If you have an idea for what you'd like to make with it, I'd like to hear it, too.
Extra entry: if you have a blog, mention the giveaway and leave me the link on this post.
Saturday, February 1 I'll use my extremely advanced giveaway winner calculator; this means I'll put all the names on pieces of paper, put them in a bowl, and draw out one. You'll have one week to claim your prize.
For the last few days, I've had an idea in my mind about a granny square. I'm not much of a patter writer, but last night I sat down and fiddled with some yarn. This was the result:
It's a 6 inch square at this point. I wanted an alternative for easy joining, so I added another round:
With a little blocking or a size larger hook (I used an I), it would be 7 inches.
Tim's idea for a name was Floating Lily Square. Hope's was similar: Water Lily Square.
What do you think?
Thanks for reading!
Looks like my stash :-)
