March Giveaway................



I thought it would be fun this month to offer something different for our monthly giveaway. Instead of me making the item, how about if one lucky winner gets to knit their own! All this month, just leave a comment on this post for your chance to win 2 skeins of Schoeller + Stahl's Fortissima Colori sock yarn along with a set of U.S. Size 2 double pointed needles. Wow! Everything you need to knit two pair of socks!

On April 1, 2011, we'll announce the lucky winner. Good luck and I look forward to reading all your comments. It's really such fun to hear from you from all around the country and sometimes the world, too!

Oh I really hope I win this giveaway! I am just about to finish knitting my sweater and then I will be ready to knit more socks. Well, sometime in there I guess I had better do a little tax work, but then I can resume knitting. You could call the it "A reward for finishing taxes giveaway'.
Warmly,
Tracey

I have been thinking about starting my first pair of socks... but I fear the unknown (seeing as how I have no sock yarn or DPNs). This would certainly give me the push to do it!

Nicole said...

Nice choice, Mac! You've convinced me to try to make socks. That package will be frosting on the cake.

BTW, tell Mom that in WV, it's "grocery store." ;)

I want in! I haven't knit with that yarn yet it would be a great opportunity.

Just a question is how is spring coming along out there? I noticed crocus blooming here what is happening outside there? Ask Mac if he has a favorite flower or time of the year?
