This week’s number is 9 — which means Maggie Wisk is the winner of the fancy Serena Bag. Congratulations Maggie!
Week 4 is the last week, and while these aren’t fancy, they are fun, and I am very excited to reintroduce them into my shop. The Skeini T – a T-shirt for yarn – is a very simple yarn holder. The yarn hangs out in the Skeini T, and it doesn’t fall out, even when the skein gets smaller than the ribbed opening. Some people call it magic. I think the knit fiber of the Skeini T and the yarns just like to hang out together. This week’s prize is two of the Skeini-T’s. One has a strap and one does not. I don’t use a strap with my Skeini-T, but what do you think?
The design on this Skeini T is the “Nit Moor Cotin” sheep, an original design, and it is digitally printed onto organic cotton via Spoonflower.com. In the past, I tried iron-on transfers, which just didn’t look good. The color and quality of this printing is fantastic, printed in the US, and uses a high-quality fabric. I am very excited to be able to offer these in the shop (coming mid-September.)
My knitting daughter prefers the Skeini-T’s to Yarn Owls. They don’t take up any extra room, and they are also a great way to store yarn. My favorite use for the Skeini-T’s is when knitting projects with two colors. I can easily put to skeins of yarn in and feed the yarn out each end. This is what I am doing in the photo below. I’m knitting a swatch for the Starry, Starry Night sock pattern using yarn from Tenacious Fibers on Etsy. There are two 400-yard (100 gram) skeins of yarn in this Skeini-T. It is full now, but the Skeini-T will flatten as the yarn is used.
The prize of the week will be posted each Monday in August. The comments will close the following Sunday at noon central time. The drawings will take place and the winner notified. Winners will have 48 hours to respond or the prize will pass to the runner up. Shipping on prizes is free. However, because of variations of laws in other countries, this sweepstakes is limited to residents of the United States. I didn’t want to do this, but I don’t see a way around it. 😦 Also, you must be over 18 years old to enter.
There is no purchase whatsoever required to enter, and you can enter each drawing by posting a comment on the weekly give-away post (one per person, please.) You must provide your e-mail to comment. The e-mail isn’t publicized on the blog, but I need it to contact you should you win a prize!
Comments will be numbered from 1-???, beginning with the oldest counting up to most recent comments. The winners will be selected using this random sequence generator. The first number on the list is the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to contact me with their address for shipping the prize. After that time, the next person on the random sequence list will be contacted and down the list until a winner accepts the weeks’ prize. Any comments that do not comply with the rules set out here will not be eligible to win the prize.
I am not using a third-party service but am conducting the sweepstakes myself. I am committed to a random and fair give away. By entering this sweepstakes, you acknowledge that you understand the process and agree with the terms and conditions outlined here.
